From the recording Flor

by Gretchen Parlato

radiant son
rise and shine your love unto the world
you are the one
spread this to every little boy and girl

for there has never been before
and there will never be again
so know how beautiful you are
repeating this until the end

i know i'm wonderful

may everyday remind you of your possibilities
and every night bring gratitude for what has come to be

remember all who were before
and all who still have yet to live
its all the same love in our hearts
a worthiness for us to give

i know im wonderful

there comes a time
our lives swirl into the wind
a mystery to feel, never seen again
you’ve only just begun
my wondrous only son
