  1. October Moon

From the recording October Moon

In reflecting back, this song became very much a part of my healing process after losing both my parents a year apart. Four years in the making, it still cuts close to the bone.

Lyrics

October Moon, saving grace, remember this placePapered walls, dusty halls, time won’t eraseThe memories here in my heart, Here in my heartI sit here in your room, by the light of the moonThrowing shadows on the wall, they don’t help me at allStill I feel you all around meWhisper to meMourning doves and garden gloves, rusty tools in the shedThe climbin’ tree, your love for meNothing more needs to be saidBlossoms in the spring, red birds on the wingDogwood in the yardYes, all of these thingsKeep you close to meClose to meFriends come to help me load the boxes in the carAll treasures packed, don’t look backJust one more stroll around the yardOctober Moon, saving grace, remember this placePapered walls, dusty halls, a mother’s warm embraceTurn the key, don’t look backTurn the key, don’t look backDon’t look back
