dark before the dawn could come
How long in twilight waiting
longing for the rising sun
You're so amazing you shine like the stars
You're so amazing the beauty you are
You came blazing right into my heart
You're so amazing you are...
(Select lyrics from "Amazing", by Janelle; the accompanying music to the photo/video montage we shared at Zachary's funeral)
A hand painted, watercolor work of art from a fellow bereaved mother, who couldn't have known how perfectly her vision for Zachary's painted name aligns with who he was (and thus, with the song we chose for his funeral). Oh, how bright and brilliant it was to welcome him, in the cold of January, just eight months ago.
Thank you, Typhaine. We will treasure this one.
