About the work:
During my college years, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. Writing this composition for her was my way of coping with her struggle…


English Translation of French Text:

FOR YOU, MOTHER

From the depths of my memory,
In the hollow of my memories,
Between the joys of my childhood
And all my future dreams,
I feel you my beautiful angel
I see you my love
O my mother of a kindest heart,
My faithful friend of always.

I love you, I love you,
I love so immensely,
Mother, mother, sweet mother.
For your love and your kindness,
I will sing your praises all of my life.

(Ahh…)

My soul is delirious at the cries of your pain;
My music throbs and groans its length.

Lord, in your kindness,
Comfort my mother.
Give her your love, your strength and your light.

For she remains forever my great inspiration,
And that my life for her is a blessing.

(Ahh…)
