Thank you so much Cindy for your beautiful and inspiring lyric. Thank you Dawn for your beautiful and truly amazing singing.
Cindy posted her lyric on FAWM.ORG and I absolutely loved the nostalgic, loving feel and beautiful, inspiring poetic words. Dawn as always gave her heart and soul into every note.

I guess your eyes were hazel
They changed with every mood
From tender blue and loved-filled
To dark grey when subdued

You'd been out on your sailboat
A storm had come up fast
I never knew when I last kissed you
That that would be our last

But what I remember are your eyes
How they changed just like the sea
From blue to green, then in between
To grey as you left me
Yeah, I remember most your eyes
Can’t think I’ll never see
Your kaleidoscope eyes full of life
They’ve closed eternally

Of all the pictures in my head
I keep seeing that lovely spark
That used to light up your eyes
Until my world turned dark

The hope I have to carry on
Is this child I have within
I hope he has his Daddy’s eyes
It’s like you’ll live again

Repeat chorus
