I wrote this for my dear friend Melanie DeMore and her sister Drena when Drena was about 6 months away from her death. I knew that the time was immeasurably precious and that Melanie would arrive right on time. She stood watch over Drena’s bedside and sang to her for 5 days and 6 nights. Their love for each other inspires me deeply.

Watching and waiting by that beautiful gate.
Its welcoming door opens just for you.
You can’t arrive early and you can’t arrive late.
Watching and waiting by that beautiful gate.
