How do I write about this one?

The 2nd new song is titled "Power and Might".

I am going to keep the explanation for this one on the simple side.

My niece died in a car accident last year.  I didn't know her as well as I could have, but I have come to know her family pretty well.  She is not a blood relation due to a marriage in the family, but I don't really feel like that matters.

I traveled to Kentucky for her wake and funeral, and it left a mark.  Especially on my limited understanding of fatherhood.  Let's just say Zoe and Georgia are more precious to me now.

I wrote the original words.  Matthew did some smithing to make it fit for a song.  The melody he wrote is a perfect mix of beauty and heartbreak.  This recording did not turn out the best, and the song is still too long.  We'll need to figure out which section to trim and try again.  But if we can keep these vocals, I will.
