Story behind the song
I ran across Lisa's heart rending lyric about her experience and couldn't get it out of my mind. I asked if I could put some music to it and was grateful she agreed.
Lyrics
BENJAMIN ©Lisa Gundling & Ricki E. Bellos I call him in my mind Staring at the ultrasound How can such a heavy loss Weigh less than a pound Sixteen weeks of life Feeling him so much alive Begging him to be strong Truth cuts like the surgeon’s knife Benjamin, I scream And will his heart to beat on that screen Please won’t you stay Don’t fly away Benjamin, wake up, my dream, wake up After all these years My cheeks have never dried Through the blood and all the tears The mother in me still dies Benjamin, I scream And will his heart to beat on that screen Please won’t you stay Don’t fly away Benjamin, wake up, my dream, wake up It was such a wondrous time I was ready to share my body and soul Ready for his life but not his end Benjamin, I scream And will his heart to beat on that screen Please won’t you stay Don’t fly away Benjamin, wake up, my dream, wake up Benjamin, I still call to him Wake up, my dream, wake up Benjamin
