This composition is a reflection on the challenges of having family far away, and the visits which are so precious and never long enough. Miriam’s writing is simple and yet profound with heart felt nuance. It would make a lovely closing song to a concert.
I am leaving, I am leaving,
don’t you cry – it won’t be long.
I’ll hold on to one sweet memory
singing’ songs until the dawn.
Take my hand, it’s getting late now, sing a song to dry the tears.
Still in dreams I will remember all that we lost though the years.
Can you still see the reflection of the stars arising high:
on the river at midnight – not a cloud was in the sky.
Though it’s spring time, you’re still waiting,
plant the seed and watch it grow.
Leave your fears – they only bind you,
You will reap just what you sow.
