The Heart of the Matter
August 30, 2020

Gorgeous song here, my friends. Lyrics by Tom O'Mara. Music by Stuart Hoffman. Vocals by Stephen Rivera. Turn up the volume. Forget about your troubles for a while. Feel what this song is all about. Let it in. Click the link below for the back story and the lyrics. Thank you Tom and Stuart and Stephen! We are all waving...

"WAVING" was inspired by a poem written by Tom O'Mara for Cynthea Forest Orrin Thyme who left this Earth on March 9, 2019. Cynthea was a dear friend of Stuart's-- someone he knew for many years. He loved her -- her heart, her laugh, and her devotion to her highest calling. Seeing her was always a delight. When Stuart read this poem by Tom O'Mara, he was compelled to write the music. And we are glad he did. Vocals by Stephen Rivera.

How long does it take
to say goodbye?
I am standing on the shores of Earth
waving to you, my love,
aboard that ship of ships
carrying you into the sky,
and I am waving and waving
long after those sails are gone,
I am waving at the stars
all night,
still waving at dawn,
and I'm waving and waving
all through the day,
and I think I can hear people say:
There must be something wrong,
that can't be right
to be waving all day
and night after night,
and it's quite possibly true,
my Love,
I've lost my mind
saying goodbye to you.

Yet I'm waving, my darling,
it's the one thing I know.
beyond the beyond
we'll be waving hello.
