Daughter of the day








Untitled
(for Amy Winehouse)







Sun spills on Grand Anse
White sand, white surf
A drunken life and death
Foreseen in black songs
Drowning in
Her river of the blues

Sun spills on Grand Anse
Iím baptised in surf
Her unsung black songs
Flow into the inlet of my heart
I go snorkeling

But there are nights, o Amy

I am you

Submerged, scarred and scared
Learning from Mr Hathaway








Daughter of the day







O daughter of the day
You will be great
Even in your smallest steps
You will amaze

You will be great
You already are, truth be told
You will amaze
Others will watch you and wonder

You already are, truth be told
The woman you will become
Others will watch you and wonder
Your joy will blossom

The woman you will be become
So powerful, kind, sufficient
Your joy will blossom
You become yourself

So powerful, kind, sufficient
O daughter of the day
You become yourself
Even in your smallest steps
