Commentary
A voice from beyond the grave.......  Different people express their grief in different ways.  I was struck by the raw emotional power of how Nojit expressed hers and I found myself imagining what it would be like for her if I died.  I wrote this song as a form of reassurance and encouragement for that time.


Streams of tears redden your eyes and stain the cheeks I used to stroke.

Sobs pulse through your tender breast

and quiver outwards through the lips I'll kiss no more.

You haven't brushed your hair.

You won't wave me off to work today,

knowing I cannot be there with you ever again to hold you tight and close.


Learn to live again.

I know it won't be easy.

I can feel your pain

but breathe this air.

Look up at Jupiter and Mars.

I am not gone but I have changed.

I'm in the space between the stars.


Reminded by your howls of grief how you loved me beyond my belief,

privileged was I to share with you a love so wide and full as this.

Who can know tomorrow's ways?

but we shall keep you in our gaze.

Biting winds and rainy days continue but remember all this too shall pass.


Learn to live again.

I know it won't be easy.

I can feel your pain

but breathe this air.

Look up at Jupiter and Mars.

I am not gone but I have changed.

I'm in the space between the stars.


Wave me off for you've got work to do.

My sun has set but yours shall rise again for you

and when night comes, let it take you outside your bars

and when you sleep you'll see me there

in the space between the stars.
