AKA the bath mantra. It’s a masterpiece. Written by Lord Krishna. Unfortunately, the music and translation are mine.
This next one is shorter, simpler.

This song has meant different things to me over the years. I’ve been writing it slowly over the course of 20 years. Lately I would put Daniel as an inspiration but the old friend in the song is my own heart.
The something that’s coming is the present moment and it contains all possibilities.
This version doesn’t have the lyrics captions. I will post them here instead.
I saw an old friend I had not in years
In the hospital, for a moment or two
His voice was familiar, it came from my heart
As he spoke the words I am saying to you
There’s something that’s coming especially for you
It’s time to let go of your fear
Your expectations just hide it from view
It’s important you see what is happening here
You have nowhere to go, the highway moves for you
You don’t need to think about scenes that are gone
You don’t need to worry about what comes before you
Face straight ahead, mind the road that you’re on
And just in that moment I was whole
And deep in that wholeness I could see
That even though I was locked up in the hospital
Just in that moment I was free
When I opened my eyes I could tell he had been there
Like a scent far away or a sound very small
I don’t give a shit if anyone cares
But that’s what I’ve held on to in spite of it all

This song has a couple of origins.
There was a time, even before Andrew was born, when I felt like Erin and I were the two who would always be together.
During that time I had an actual dream where the two of us were the only people left on the planet.
My relationship with her mother was fraught, insecure and I secretly prayed we would find a way to split up with me keeping Erin. Though that didn’t come to pass until after Andrew was born, I always just assumed that Erin would always be there.
Then she wasn’t.
The other source is the Chronicles of Narnia. I loved reading those books and loved reading them to my kids. Erin was the first one to get that treatment. So all the imagery about the lion, creation and calling the stars home is from The Magician’s Nephew and The Last Battle.
This is the most positive of the many songs I’ve written about grief.

I ain’t ‘fraid of no goats.
I made these using starryai and the prompt “goats playing guitar on the street corner “ just to make the visual pun that sounds like Ghostbusters.
