This, my first song, originally had no words – my wife was aching to sing it and so wrote these words in memory of her brother John.

Secretly shining
prism within my heart
Sings forth your light,
star all alone, apart,
all alone so soon.

Warming my soul
from afar
I hear your call
echo in the womb
of my song,
song without words
you’re gone too long.

Now you’re the sun,
I’m your moon
your reflection
secretly shining
I’m your song
without words.

– Nancy Knowles
