For Amber Waves of Pain

For Amber Waves of Pain

Liner Notes: 

Last night I dreamed I was in a field of golden grain and searching for the late Ruth Bader Ginsberg.


Amber Waves of Pain
© 2020 Cindy Prince

We stood in the amber field
Golden sunlight shining down
We were looking for her in the grain

She understood the journey
More now than ever
Going on to a different plain

I imagined that she whispered
Amber waves of pain
We must never stop fighting
It's useless to complain
Though we want to search for her
That will be in vain
So we must try to heal
Those amber waves of pain

"Fight for the things you care about
but do it in a way that will lead others to join you"

She left behind her strength
We can be empowered
To carry her legacy onward

I picture her in the heavens
The angels bending down
Whispering, 'welcome, your honor"

Repeat chorus

O beautiful for spacious skies
For amber waves of grain...

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

fine tribute to a great american in an age of infamy.....maybe 2024 will mark a turning point.

Beautiful. Definitely more graceful than my response. I think she would appreciate this.
