YOU HOLD ME UP SO I WON’T FALL

AS I GROW OLD

In honor of Father’s Day, I am sharing a brand new song, which I wrote last week. It is called, “With Me.”

With me, when I was born, with me as I mourn
With me in every song, with me to keep me strong

With me when I cry, with me when I die
Watching my life unfold, you’re with me, as I grow old . . . Continue reading
