May it Be

The early morning moments in the days after Owen’s birth are some of my most treasured.

Resting my tiny, curled baby on my lap, his long, spindly fingers curling around mine.

It was Christmas time and the days were busy, but the mornings, our early four a.m. moments, were quiet, peaceful, and just belonged to us.

It was when I started singing “May it Be” to you for the first time and nearly every day since.

May it be an evening star
Shines down upon you
May it be when darkness falls
Your heart will be true
You walk a lonely road
Oh! How far you are from home

Mornie utulie (Darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way
Mornie alantie (Darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now

May it be the shadow’s call
Will fly away
May it be your journey on
To light the day
When the night is overcome
You may rise to find the sun

Mornie utulie (Darkness has come) 
Believe and you will find your way
Mornie alantie (Darkness has fallen) 
A promise lives within you now

A promise lives within you now
