Song for Milly

 

Here we are

Heads bowed down

So in grief

 

Here we are

Heads up high

Eyes aimed at the sky

 

Stars that shine

Are beacons in time

That is what you do

You lead us the way

Lighten up the night

And guide us to the morning light

 

I close my eyes

And see you now

Smiling so tenderly

It feels amazingly

Reassuringly

 

Hello star

You are in my soul

Here in my heart

Oh remain there tenderly

Never leave my memory

 

That is what you are

A star so graciously

Shining bright on me

 

We gather here

To embrace you lovingly

And let you know

That you will always be

 

A shining star

That is what you are

Bright little star

That is what you are

Shine down on me lovingly

 

We will remember you

We will remember you

We will remember you

This song was originally written for the parents and family of 12 year old girl Milly Boele who was murdered by a neighbor in 2010 in the city of Dordrecht in The Netherlands. The neighbor was a policeman. I was asked to write a song and perform this for the parents, family and others on June 12th, 2010 at their home in the city of Dordrecht. So I did. This song  is also dedicated to all people who lost someone dear to them.
