Story

This song arrived shortly after our second child, Cameron. It celebrates the indescribable bonding of mother and child in the moments after birth.

Lyrics

Peace of My Love Tiny, frightened child Feeling yourself breathing your first breath Though your heart flutters like a birds Take comfort in these words You are of my body, by my side In my heart forever so close your eyes and sleep in the peace of my love Your eyes are my eyes My smile is your smile I see what is good in my in you I’ll be here to help you grow but for know just know You are of my body, by my side In my heart forever so close your eyes and sleep in the peace of my love In a world not yet divided by pedigree or race You are still an angel in a state of perfect grace Of my body, by my side In my heart forever so close your eyes and sleep in the peace of my love
