I was meditating on gratitude and the words and melody for this song came together fairly quickly except the “serenity” part which came several days later.
I was playing what I had already while waiting for a class to arrive and just improvising the “chorus” when a kindergarten kid who had run ahead of her class burst into the room. This child was the exact opposite of her name. She could have been called “Precocious”, “Energetic”, “Dynamo”, “Calamity”…. but there she was …”Serenity” and I had the song finished. The kids all loved the chorus and sang along with me ah…….Serenity. One child asked why I wrote a song about Serenity and not her. “Julie” Lol.
I love the silence It lets the music shine through You love my music It's my gift from me to you From me to you......Serenity I love the peace of knowing You're here with me Being here with me And knowing that we are free That we're free.........Serenity Some battles can't be fought Some treasures can't be bought We've already been taught What's right and what is not.......Serenity We know our days are numbered There's no time to waste We've got to cherish every moment Savour every taste Every taste.........Serenity
