This is a song about a fictional father reliving memories of his daughter who passed away years ago. Any feedback would be very beneficial.

Golden Light

February 7, 2021

Verses
You would always smile
As we danced throughout the day
And you’d always love 
Every golden memory
You'd love to see
You would know
That time drains fast
And I must
Hold you close


Verses
The world is always turning
We were golden as the sun
You’d point your tiny finger
To every single star 
And name each one
And you would know
That we are small
And we must
Never fall

Chorus
You’d light the light
You’d light the light
You’d infuse every memory
With golden light

Verses
I’ve come to say I’m sorry
My hands were weak and frail
I couldn’t do anything
But watch you fail
In the fight
Disease is bold
But you always knew
The best “the end”
Is often 
Bittersweet

Chorus
You’d light the light
You’d light the light
You’d infuse every memory
With golden light

Verses
I must always tell myself
To not forget these days
The gold is fading from my mind 
And desperation clouds my very soul
What I’d give
To have you live
And laugh
Beside me
Forever and ever

Chorus
You’d light the light
You’d light the light
I’m holding on to memories
Of golden light

Verses
You would always smile
As we danced throughout the day
And you’d always love 
Every golden memory
You'd love to see
You would know
That time drains fast
And I must
Hold you close
