about

This is recounting an experience my husband and I shared while camping on the Olympic peninsula in Washington state when I was pregnant with our son.

lyrics

3. AFTERGLOW
©2016 Mary Elaine Mahon/Six Pelicans Publishing, BMI

Come now, unknit your brow for me
Come over here and let’s sit silently
And watch the day glide into night
We’ll linger in the afterglow from the last rays of light

(Chorus) Oh now I see
Oh now I see
We’re inextricably intertwined
Your heart with mine
Here we are upon this earth in orbit ‘round the sun
We shall go as one

Come here, let this moment be
A moonless night, a phosphorescent sea
Beneath these brilliant stars above
Within this womb of night awaits a child born of our love

(Chorus) Oh now I see
Oh now I see
Oh now I see
We’re inextricably intertwined
Your lives with mine
Here we are upon this Earth in orbit ‘round the sun
We shall go as one

Come now, unknit your brow for me
