A Father’s Day tribute…

  
When I was a child, my father told me ‘you can do anything you want to.’

Its only when you grow up and step back from him;or leave him for your own home; its only then that you can measure his greatness and fully appreciate it.

My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.

Not only that, but my Father was the one I would turn to in times of upset, confusion or sadness during the rocky teenage years. His calm, wise words would soothe my anxious spirit and his grounded nature inspired security and faith in me too. 

Throughout my career as a performer,  my father has always been there, supporting and encouraging me to be the best I can be and to always make the most of what I have. 

Our shared love for music and lyrics has meant we have always been close yet I have never dedicated a performance to my father – until now. 

I chose this song as it tells the tale of a father who ultimately provides nothing but comfort and reassurance to his child. Just like my Dad always did and still does to me. 

So here you are Dad, this ones for you. 

Thanks for everything

A mindful wish for my children 

The greatest gift I can give to you is my presence.

You aren’t fussed for gifts or fancy things

You just want mummy to watch, help and live life beside you. 

That’s why I promise you this.

I’m alert and I’m here

Every step of the way

Through the hard times and tears

I will hold and protect you 

And I will share all of the delights of the world with you.

For my greatest wish in life is to be present for all of our moments together

That way there’ll be no regrets no sadness no nostalgia

For I’ll know I was with you anyway. 

We’ve come this far together

And wherever we go I will be there. 

In body, mind and spirit.
