Artist's Notes

This is a song I wrote when my mother was dying and I finished it after she passed.

When she was in the hospital and could not communicate, I woke up one morning and I had a stream of words flood into my mind. I wrote them down and was thinking that maybe she died and sent me a last message. I always had a very good connection with her. She was still alive but passed the next day. The Verses of the song "My Joy" are the words that flooded into my mind that morning. I wrote the chorus later.

Lyrics

My Joy

By Brent Godfrey 2018

Verse 1 You?re my sparkleYou? re my joy

I?m so proud of you my boy

You lift me up when I feel down

I?m so happy when you come around

ChorusEverything about you fills my soul with love

My life revolves around you like the earth around the sun.

Vers2I love you so my son and friend

I am confident we?ll meet again

I live for you both night and day

Don?t be sad when I go away

Chorus

Vers3I?ll be with you wherever you go

I love you more than you?ll ever know

I?ll hold you near and keep you safe

Think of me and keep the faith
