Music and lyrics by Kevin Hartnell
The song is dedicated in loving memory to my father, Grant Hartnell.


Come, my child, sit down next to me.
Under the stars, underneath the willow tree.

Take my hand, for the last time.
Don't say goodbye, just stay with me.

Until the rising sun
Shines upon my face
Then carry me home

Over time, you will begin to see.
The shadows will fade into light.

As it is meant to be,
As it is willed to be,
So it is meant to be.
Is it willed to be?
Is it meant to be?
