Yours is this day
So glad you were born
A new being came
To brighten up my sky

Yours is the way
The path that you will tread
A new light shines each year
To lead you on your way

Yours is the love
That so helps others through
So thankful for this day
So glad to know you.



About Dawnings:
“Every morning at around 5am I get up and go down to my studio. After a short meditation I write down whatever is in my head, giving myself fifteen minutes to do so. Then moving over to the piano (or a more portable instrument like my Ukulele when I'm away), I improvise and record a piece of music inspired by whatever words I just wrote. It is a great way of keeping both my writing and my composing going and I call these small creations Dawnings. They are mostly unedited, like sketches, so that they keep that fresh feeling of an early morning discovery.”
