Biography

I am an Australian songwriter. I began writing poetry in the early 1990's and then after years of child rearing, started writing again in 2005. I wrote and self published a poetry book called "Love, Passion, Despair". After launching the book, I had several readio interviews in which I received positive feedback, I was often told my poems sounded like songs. In April 2006 I submitted 3 of my poems changed into songs to a demo company in Nashville USA. After 3 months I received the demos and have submitted each song in the "American song of the year" contest. One of the songs was "runner up", another was awarded "Honourary Mention". I submitted 2 other songs to Paramount Song Contest in Nashville USA and received a Directors award for each. The song "My Sanctuary" was recorded and put on a compilation CD called "Catch a Rising Star" and was made by "Paramount Group" in Nashville USA. I am currently writing songs and entering contests. My songs are all written from my life experiences. I write about love, lost love, betrayal, passion, despair, poverty and injustice. I also write spiritual songs. My aim is for people to hear my songs and words and that my message will touch the feelings in those who would relate.

Lyrics

Soul Mate

Written By: Heather J Reynolds

From the moment our eyes first met
Knew that meeting you was heaven sent.
Until then life was a mess,
Then you held me and you showed me tenderness.

Chorus:
You're my soul mate
you're my missing part,
The healer of my broken heart

You're my soul mate
you're my missing part,
The healer of my broken heart

Never had a friend so true,
someone who I'd give part of my soul to -
Now all I want to do
Is to share my love with you.

Chorus -

You filled the void of emptiness
and endless nights of lonliness
They say we all have a soul mate -
with one whom we can truly relate.
You came along when I was sad and blue - now all I want to do,
is share my love with you

Chorus - X2

My Sanctuary

Written By: Heather Reynolds

This is my space,
this is my place -
The place that I go to, when I need quiet.
Time to reflect,
re-evaluate, sort out my head, my feelings, my life.

Chorus:
This is my space
this is my place and time
I need to give to myself each day.

It doesn't matter
where my santuary may be
It's the place I go to be
alone with me.
It's the calm I feel when I look at the clouds,
as they roll by.

Chorus -

My sanctuary, is when I'm sitting peacefully under the shade of a tree, or when I walk alone looking out to sea.
It's wherever I feel calm in me.

Chorus -

This is my space.

I Miss You

Written By: Heather Reynolds

I miss you
I really do
I can't stand being without you.
I want to see your face,
hold each other - embrace
I want to kiss you, touch you -
Just to be with you
and let you know -
That you're still in my heart and mind,
you're everywhere I go.

I want to see your face,
hold each other - embrace
I want to kiss you, touch you

Chorus:
I miss you
I really do
I can't stand being without you.
Cos you're still in my heart
you're in my soul,
your everywhere I go.

When I walk
your walking beside me,
when I cry
I feel you inside me.
Your in my thoughts
and in my dreams,
you're everywhere I am
but not with me.

Chorus -

I want to spend some more time together,
So I can say how much I really care,
tell you things I didn't share,
when I acted like I didn't care.

Chorus -

You're everywhere I go
I miss you

wait and see
