Good Night Sister Sun :
Michael (Not his real name) inspired this simple lullaby. Hospitalized with terminal cancer, this courageous 12 year old young man allowed me to come visit him bedside at the hospital. We had 3 months. Our "deal" was that I would bring in an original song for him to critique. He knew I wrote for little kids, but he didn't mind playing "American Idol" with me and voting on the quality of the song. Running out of original material, I wrote this right before our last visit. He approved.
