Lyrics
The Garden of my Soul

My body is a tangle of unravelled thorns
My heart is scratched and torn
Pain-tinged raindrops kiss my face
In a faint futile embrace

Forget-me-nots are fading fast they will not last
And summer's blooms have passed
Love-lies-bleeding lingering on
But the thyme has almost gone

Everything is dying
In the garden of my soul
The willows watch and weep
As I sweep away the leavings
Of a life no longer whole

The nightingale has songs for sale
They are not wanted here
The air will not be clear enough
For his sweet soulful call
Sadness suffocates all sound
Soon there'll be none at all

Everything is lying
In my garden of belief
The great oak chokes back tears
As I clear away my freedom
To plant the seeds of grief

I am always
saddened by VAW... I simply cannot imagine how men can be so cruel at time so something so beautiful. Beyond my comprehension.

This is beautiful. I love how your voice works with the piano in this. A gorgeous song!

if it wasn't a beautiful composition you'd get my thumbs up for participating in such a worthy cause. And beautiful it is. That you on the piano? haunting and introspective.

Congratulations on this submission. It is awesome to see you use your talent for such a worthy cause. Aside from the worthy cause, this song gives you an opportunity to really show off your wonderful voice. The simple piano arrangement is perfect, and your sparing use of harmonies makes them stand out all the more. Excellent submission - thank you for sharing this with us.

What a place
this is - one minute I'm listening to some fabulous heavy dub funk - then screech of brakes as this fantastically beautiful and meaningful song starts to play.
Your vocal really does do justice to this wonderful song, your talent is awesome.
Thanks for another treasured download.
Cheers
Len

Big sis!
Beautiful words and a terrific interpretation. I've never experienced domestic violence personally, but I've seen the result of it in some of the young kids I used to see i my work. I've never been able to get my head around violence or war - an attitude my dad planted when I was very young through retelling his experiences of WWII. Simply don't get it. I don't know the program you mention, but it certainly seems something worth supporting.

Lovely tune Anne.

Sisters...
I love the melody and singing, and the lyrics speak of a timeless injustice. What an emotional song! Some people don't understand why a woman stays in these circumstances, but when one is so crushed, it is hard to stand up. i hope you win the contest- this is very moving.
