‘Your Song Was My Song’


Hand-cut paper. Featured in the exhibition ‘There Is Only Time’ at Sims Reed Gallery, London 2013.


‘In my head every day, all day long, I sang my special song, a hidden thing, a simple waltz that went around and around and around just like how the world goes around and around. I looked at the world as my song sang along and I saw the whole thing as one long dance that would go on forever. And then one day I heard someone else singing my song and I looked around and of course it was you. I never knew that your song was my song is now our song and when we’re gone this song will keep going around and around to keep on telling the people of the world to never forget how sweet life is.’
