"Now that she's back in the atmosphere
With drops of Jupiter in her hair, hey, hey
She acts like summer and walks like rain
Reminds me that there's a-time to change, hey, hey
Since the return of her stay on the moon
She listens like spring and she talks like June, hey, hey
But tell me did you sail across the sun
Did you make it to the Milky Way
to see the lights all faded
And that heaven is overrated?
Tell me did you fall from a shooting star
One without a permanent scar
And did you miss me while you were
looking for yourself out there?"
Drops of Jupiter by Train
This song was mine and my mother's. I didn't have the best relationship with her, and most contact became non-existent after my siblings and I were taken away to live with my aunt and uncle, and later my grandparents. She finally passed away on August 4th last year from liver failure. Sometimes I wonder why I cry every time I hear this song when she wasn't really a huge part of my life. Maybe I wanted to have the chance to know her as a mother, and not as the bad person she was.
I was inspired by this for the painting: https://www.deviantart.com/yuumei/art/Star-Maker-791905258
I sketched it out last night while I was at work, and I finally finished painting it this afternoon. I need to do more tiger art~
