Songs of Dedication (Free Downloads)

Links to two of dP’s previously recorded original songs of dedication are listed below. Wait For the Dawn is dedicated to those who lost their lives on 9/11 to include the youngest victim in the Pentagon tragedy–Dana Falkenberg, age 3–and her family, as well as to those who protect our freedom and keep us safe.  The sound of taps is interwoven throughout the song.  The Smile Lives On is dedicated to dP’s late mother and father.   Both songs will be rerecorded, remixed, and re-released at a later date.

Wait for the Dawn – 9/11 Dedication

Autumn blue in crystal skies
Carefree spirits deaf to terror’s cries
Iron eagles soar, gripped by evil’s hand
Fierce hate brings down grand symbols of our land

Wait for the dawn, We must carry on
They gave it all for you and me
Home of the brave and the land of the free
Wait for the dawn, We will carry on
Their bravery for all to see, Let freedom ring through eternity

We heal each day as they stand guard
Never forget those who walked the final yard
Solemn yet proud, our flags fly high
Never had the chance to say goodbye

Wait for the dawn, We must carry on
They gave it all for you and me
Home of the brave and the land of the free
Wait for the dawn, We will carry on
Their bravery for all to see, Let freedom ring through eternity
[Oh say can you see by the dawn’s early light…]

The Smile Lives On – Dedicated to dP’s late Mother and Father


[media-downloader media_id=”321″ image_url=”http://www.dpdurkee.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/DownloadNowButtonSmall.png”]

Hold you deep within my heart
Eternal love, we’ll never be apart
The river flows carving canyons deep
The wind blows, whispers you to sleep
I turn around, you’re still gone, but the smile lives on

Looking back to a gentler time,
Looking forward to what remains
Your spirit in my soul
Your blood in my veins.

Carry you each and every day
Your guiding hand showing me the way
The sand falls through the hour glass
The sun sets, another day has passed
I turn around, you’re still gone, but the smile lives on

Look to the sky and see the radiant beams, the smile lives on
