The Choice - by Kari Hilpert
A song for my mom.
You were a strong one, how did you hold on
How did you go on alone
Nothing to hold you, but you were carrying me
And you had to see it was gonna be hard
But you made a choice you didn't have to make
You chose to keep me when others said you could make it go away
You could never see the choice you made then
Was gonna be a choice that changed it all
And I need to say, it's because of your strength I'm here today
I'm here at all
You had a hard road, juggling jobs
Dusk until dawn, so you could have your days
Because a little girl depended on your love
But you must have thought about sometimes giving up
A few years later you got the news, you could never have another
You'd never regretted your decision but now it meant more

I am a singer/songwriter living near Nashville, TN. I'm also a mother of four, recently finishing the chapter of homeschooling them for 25 years, and raising them all here on our dairy goat farm.
Songwriting has been a lifelong hobby and I love to sing out occasionally with my husband, Tom, and sometimes the whole family. We also enjoy doing house-concerts when we're invited to do them.
For me, many of life’s struggles and joys seem to be processed through songs. If those songs can help others, it’s worth putting them out there.
I'm available for house concerts,
(contact info below), and other events.
