Always with Me 

Title: Always With Me (Itsumo Nando Demo)
Artist: Joe Hisaishi
Movie: Spirited Away

After I shared my story of recent loss, many friends reached out and shared their heartbreaking stories of loss as well. As much as I believe this should never happen in a perfect world, I know we live in a broken one, and am relieved to not have to walk it alone. There is an increased sense of community when our stories are shared. Thank you ladies for blessing me with your words. Thank you also to a high school friend of mine who shared this beautiful song with me. As it’s Pregnancy & Child Loss Remembrance Day today, I’m sharing this song with you.

Somewhere, a voice calls, in the depths of my heart

May I always be dreaming, the dreams that move my heart

So many tears of sadness, uncountable through and through

I know on the other side of them I’ll find you

Everytime we fall down to the ground we look up to the blue sky above

We wake to it’s blueness, as for the first time

Though the road is long and lonely and the end far away, out of sight

I can with these two arms embrace the light

As I bid farewell my heart stops, in tenderness I feel

My silent empty body begins to listen to what is real

The wonder of living, the wonder of dying

The wind, town, and flowers, we all dance one unity

Somewhere a voice calls in the depths of my heart

keep dreaming your dreams, don’t ever let them part

Why speak of all your sadness or of life’s painfull woes

Instead let the same lips sing a gentle song for you

The whispering voice, we never want to forget,

in each passing memory always there to guide you

When a miror has been broken, shattered pieces scattered on the ground

Glimpses of new life, reflected all around

Window of beginning, stillness, new light of the dawn

Let my silent, empty body be filled and reborn

No need to search outside, nor sail across the sea

Cause here shining inside me, it’s right here inside me

I’ve found a brightness, it’s always with me
