This is the first song I share with you. I wrote this song to heal through the separation between mother and I. I reimagine the difficulty of our separation as a hope, a promise of a wonderful future ahead.

I tell the story of separation, reunification, how mothers shape our identities and my relationship to the feminine, in the forthcoming album 'Mother'.

lyrics

Lyrics:

I know you’ve got a wonderful future ahead of you
There are many many wonderful people you're yet to meet
And I know, I’ll eventually have to let you go
But you should follow your heart in everything that you do

I’m sorry, if I made mistakes
But baby, I loved you more than life
And maybe, you still won’t forgive me
But I hope you’ll find relentless joy

I know you’ve got a wonderful future ahead of you
Sometimes, I didn’t know the best approach
And I may not have been able to see what I couldn’t see
But I could not reach your heart cuz it was so broken

And I wish I could have heard what I didn’t hear
But I’m lucky that you’ve grown so well
And maybe you still won’t forgive me
But I hope you’ll find relentless joy

But just promise me, you’ll always follow you happiness
And just promise me you’ll always take care of yourself
And just promise me, you will never, lose faith in true love
