A SEED WAS SOWN
by LUKA BLOOM

This New Morning
This New Morning
(2012)
A seed was sown
With a simple bow
Where we remembered our heroes
She said the time has come now
She laid her wreath
With dignity and grace
An eloquent silence
And softness in her face
She lowered her head down
And held the pose
My tears flowed freely
God only knows
She remembered our losses
She remembered her own
And in that moment
A seed was sown…

I’ve been holding on
To hurts from long ago
I’ve been holding on
Like it’s all I really know

Elizabeth and Mary
Standing there side by side
Reflecting in silence
On the people who have died
Let’s create a new story
A friendship to last
May all the old wounds
Become the tales of our past
The last leaf of Autumn
Reluctant to let go
It finally falls down
So new life may grow
She remembered our losses
She remembered her own
And in that moment
A seed was sown…

I've been holding on
To hurts from long ago
I've been holding on
Like it's all I really know
A seed was sown…
