Mara's Song
Lyrics and Music by Dame Eilidh Swann
© Copyright 2007 Cat C. Ellen

The son of the bard is weary tonight
As memory threatens to drown him
From boyhood to man, just overnight
As her life was stricken from him

CHORUS
Her scion, her heir, her only son
He will stand tall, he will move on
Her scion, her heir, her one and only son
He will remember her with honor

A tear wiped away as it threatens the page
As he writes the music that fills him
His hands take the quill and the staves once again
That she will ne'er be forgotten
CHORUS

But how should he tell of her sweet lilting voice?
And all she meant to those who loved her?
Each branch in the road's just a matter of choice
With courage he'll shoulder his burden
CHORUS

He knows that he is not quite alone
There's others who grieve for her memory
For each of these then, he'll sing a home
With oath-making not taken lightly
CHORUS

(For Sheetmusic)
