She is present in many forms, yet invisible for the eye, she is the Lady of Silences
A song, based on a fragment of 'Ash Wednesday' by T.S. Elliot, about 

being in
and letting go of
the garden of life.
Vocals - Sterre Decru
Violin - Ruth Mareen

Lady of silences
Calm and distressed
Torn and most whole
Rose of memory
Rose of forgetfulness
Exhausted and life-giving

Worried reposeful
The single Rose
Is now the Garden
Where all loves end

Terminate torment
Of love unsatisfied

The greater torment
Of love satisfied

End of the endless
Journey to no end
Conclusion of all that
Is inconclusible

Speech without word and
Word of no speech
Grace to the Mother
For the Garden
Where all love ends
