Description
Several weeks ago I posted a little lullaby for my new nephew, Luke. A few days ago, I was thrilled to receive a note from Anne saying she had been playing around with some vocals for the tune. What she's come up with here is gorgeous, and you'll be a stronger person than I am if you can keep your eyes dry during this.

Thank you Anne for sharing your incredible talents.

Lyrics
you lie snug
in the curve of my arm
i'll keep you safe
i'll keep you warm
while you sleep in my arms


welcome to the world
i'm so glad you came
i have been waiting
now i see your face
and i can feel your grace


beautiful child
i'm glad i'm your mother
gently we rock
hearts close to each other
now

Lullaby
Gorgeous sums the whole thing up. Beautiful piano, beautiful lyrics sung beautifully. Little Luke (I assume the photo is indeed he) will turn out great if the love exuded in this song continues through his life.

wrapped up
I remember commenting on the original instrumental, saying something about this reminding me of Bach's tune, and now with Anne's intimate singing added, the whole experience of the music now is like being wrapped up in a warm soft blanket... soothing and beautiful... you are both incredibly talented, Brava! Lucky Luke...
ttfn,

Wow. It's working...my eyes are misty.

Beautiful work, Shay and Anne.

Anne: your harmonies remind me of Kate and Anna McGarrigle--the highest praise in my book.

Well - seeing as I found it hard not to cry
with the music alone - now all bets are off. Anne's addition is stunning and moving. My kids are now 16 and 20 and I'm move to tears just thinking about them as children sometimes. Couldn't have imagined a better collaboration than this. Thanks Shay - thanks Anne.

babies
those critters- they're so cute. So beautiful and without any knowledge of just how vulnerable they are. It is such an awesome experience to hold your own. Something reassuring and frightening all at the same time. This song with the now wonderful vocals seems to capture that moment of revelation.

No Comment (just sniffles!)
Beautiful. All i can say. Lovely harmonies. Love the line 'i've been waiting', the way it says so much about the long road that led to this beautiful moment.

Thank you for conveying something of that feeling to me.

Beautiful - elegant, really, is the word that comes to mind. I would have considered this to be a difficult piece to improve with vocals - Anne made it happen. Very nice!

Beautiful
Took me right back to when my daughter was first born and we took her home. Great tunes are the ones that just "arrive" and this one did. I didn't even notice the song, just where it took me - That takes more skill than most people in the world have! Really enjoyed this and the trip back to new dad times. (Now it's over I'm back to just grumpy old dad..)
