January Song ft. Maryann Corrigan


by Maryann Corrigan

Januarys song, was cold and dank

A lion in winter, a stroll in the park

Alone and abandoned; smiling through it all 

Pretending everything was fine;

Tricking my mind; standing still in time

Februarys warmth, began the thaw

Awakening spirit; shined through it all

Surging emotions; flowed from within

I didn’t look back; on the darkness again

Marching on in the light, A new journey begins


Knights in white satin; fair maids in a row

Twirling in motion; how was I to know

Aprils innocence; bloomed in my heart

So many feelings, no room for the dark

May I explain, how my life took flight

Soaring in silence; one dark spring night

Taming the lion, that stalked me in fright 

He looked in my eyes, and stared into my soul

Touched me so deeply, made me so bold 


Yes , Januarys song was cold and dark

That Lion in winter, that stroll in the park 

No longer alone, now out of the dark

And no more standing still in time

I am always in motion and full of joy inside

That lion taught me, how to be proud

And stand up tall and realize 

that underneath it all, I matter in this world 

Those amber eyes, comforted my heart

And made me know, that I was a part of 

something so much bigger, than just myself

Words of Halkios for this Collab

Some things in Life, are meant to be; are meant to happen and meant to meet. Somehow like this  January, a Song made by a beautiful poet, met the Rain of an equaly beautiful Musician David Gray; and That Lion in the Winter, that was just passing by through another Artist of a kind, our friend Robert; who by painting his emotion made it right...

Words of Maryann for this Collab

Brother of my soul, your words in this introduction are so beautiful. It is true like you say, I believe...; well, we both believe, that in this life there is no such think as coincidence. Our paths crossing,my writing this poem, and Rob's art ...all were only bonded perfectly when you found the music and put all of the pieces together and created this masterpiece.I thank you from the bottom of my heart.Love you, my friend.~m
