Submitter Comments

This song came right out of a bedside sing for a fairly young woman I’d sung for both at her home and in a facility in Colorado Springs. Our trio’s singing and breathing seemed to be in the same cadence with her…hard to say if our breathing was affecting hers or vice versa. A beautiful syncing of shared breath and lives intersecting.

Rest in each breath.
Let it soothe, let it soften.
Rest in each breath. Rest.
