about

A warm-hearted, feel-good 12-song collection illuminating messages of love, peace, and compassionate understanding, Ripple Love is an album that inspires us all to courageously experience life and love uncontained. Kathryn Cloward honors timeless connection with “Forever,” “Dorothy,” and “I Held His Hand.” She’s vulnerably confessional in “Honesty” and “You Inspire Me,” and optimistically hopeful in “Dark Cloud” and “Garden of Love.” The title track, “Ripple Love,” is an impactful song inspiring personal transformation to create a positive ripple effect of change throughout our planet as we choose to journey “The Purposeful Path” of our lives.

Track Name: What I'm Here To Do
What I'm Here to Do
Lyrics and music written by Kathryn Cloward
Music co-written by Barry Rosenbaum (John Rosenbaum & Katie Rosenbaum)

I’ve been working my whole life for this
Didn’t come easily
Started at the bottom the youngest, the newest
May I take your order please

Rose to the top shattered it all
That’s when I heard my angels call
Put the sound in my head gave my spirit a lift
They said Get out there and share your gift

The more it grew the more I knew
I’m out here to sing for you
Staying true seeing it through
This is what I’m here to do

Shining my light every day
It’s sometimes hard to do
But mostly it’s sweet all the people I meet
Grown ups and the li’l ones too

Through all the love and all of the fears
Dance with the laughter, grow with the tears
Trying everything, not missing anything
Joyfully living what freedom brings

The more it grew the more I knew
I’m out here to sing for you
Staying true seeing it through
This is what I’m here to do

Feel the song write it down
Mic it up and share the sound
Set the capo so it’s right
Cue the band turn up them lights

The more it grew the more I knew
I’m out here to sing for you
Staying true seeing it through
This is what I’m here to do

The more it grew the more I knew
I’m out here to sing for you
Staying true seeing it through
This is what I’m here to do
Track Name: Honesty
Honesty
Lyrics and music written by Kathryn Cloward
Music co-written with Jeff Berkley

In my darkness I told many lies
With secrecy and pain false words I hid behind
In the crumbling light started to show
Now living what’s true is comfort to my soul

There are no shadows in the mid-day sun
Open and receive love streaming from the magical One
Because soul-shining joy is easy
When we choose to dwell in ---- honesty

I’ve been deceitful and I’ve been deceived
The price is high for what we don’t want others to see
Cocooned through change as I healed my past
Now honesty provides me with peace at last

There are no shadows in the mid-day sun
Open and receive love streaming from the magical One
Because soul-shining joy is easy
When we choose to dwell in ---- honesty

There are no shadows in the mid-day sun
Open and receive love streaming from the magical One
Because soul-shining joy is easy
When we choose to dwell in ---- honesty
Track Name: Dark Cloud
Dark Cloud
Lyrics and music written by Kathryn Cloward

I can’t let my heart dangle on a string
I don’t want to be the one steering everything
I just want to believe again
That love doesn’t have to end

Let’s put our bags down let’s talk this out
Let’s try to find a way through this dark cloud
Then maybe we can recover
From living under this dark cloud

There used to be so many sunny days
Where joy and laughter led our way
I don’t know when we got so out of sync
How did we get here on the brink

Let’s put our bags down let’s talk this out
Let’s try to find a way through this dark cloud
Then maybe we can recover
From living under this dark cloud

Can we get back to how we used to be
When life didn’t feel so crazy
Let’s allow the rain to wash away
All of the pain that’s been in our way

Let’s put our bags down let’s talk this out
Let’s try to find a way through this dark cloud
Then maybe we can recover
From living under this dark cloud
Dark cloud
Dark cloud
Track Name: The Purposeful Path
The Purposeful Path
Lyrics and music written by Kathryn Cloward

I’ve got a heart that’s healed
All my wound are sealed
And time is on my side
I’ve got love to give
A magical life to live
My angels are taking me on this ride

As I journey on the purposeful path
I’ve made changes the kind that last
Every choice that I’ve made
All the patterns I’ve erased
Take me one step further down
The purposeful path

Now I trust what I know
My intuition’s in the flow
I realize what I feel is real
Fully living my purpose
The hard journey’s been worth it
Now I help other people as they heal

As I journey on the purposeful path
I’ve made changes the kind that last
Every choice that I’ve made
All the patterns I’ve erased
Take me one step further down
The purposeful path

Everyone is someone special
Unique treasures we are
Let’s help each other thrive
Together we go far

As we journey on the purposeful path
We make changes the kind that last
Every choice that we make
All the patterns we erase
Take us one step further down
The purposeful path
Track Name: She Flew
She Flew
Lyrics and music written by Kathryn Cloward

You don’t have to justify yourself
To anyone about anything no not ever
You don’t have to compromise your heart
For anyone for anything no not ever

My dear friend
You are strong
Spread your wings
Let your life be your song

Then with stars in her eyes
There was nothing she couldn’t do
With courage beyond fear
She flew
She flew

You are a messenger of love
For everyone about everything yes you are
You are a bright shining light
For everyone for everything yes you are

My dear friend
You are strong
Spread your wings
Let your life be your song
Then with stars in her eyes
There was nothing she couldn’t do
With courage beyond fear
She flew
She flew

On days when you
Dip down into doubt
Always remember
You can flutter your way out

My dear friend
You are strong
Spread your wings
Let your life be your song
Then with stars in her eyes
There was nothing she couldn’t do
With courage beyond fear
She flew
She flew
She flew
She flew
She flew
She flew
Track Name: Warrior Woman
Warrior Woman
Lyrics and music written by Kathryn Cloward

I’m a warrior woman grounded and strong
Standing in my center my arms stretched long
One arm reaches back to my past
The other onward to dreams I have

I’m a warrior woman confident and whole
In this moment present with it all
A knowing wisdom flows through me
As each breathe aligns my energy

Oh oh oh whoa
oh oh oh whoa
Oh oh oh warrior woman
Oh oh oh whoa
oh oh oh whoa
Oh oh oh warrior woman

I’m a warrior woman of mindful intention
Avoiding darkness with graceful deflection
My colorful light is a rainbow rippling
A Journey of discovery for a soul’s healing

I’m a warrior woman I’ve got nothing to prove
Power within guides every fluid move
Peace is my weapon love is my truth
Content with myself living as I choose

Oh oh oh whoa
oh oh oh whoa
Oh oh oh warrior woman
Oh oh oh whoa
oh oh oh whoa
Oh oh oh warrior woman

A crimson cloak protects me
Shaman wisdom gained honorably
My balanced alchemy unifies
A mindful observer with awakened eyes

Oh oh oh whoa
oh oh oh whoa
Oh oh oh warrior woman
Oh oh oh whoa
oh oh oh whoa
Oh oh oh warrior woman

Oh oh oh whoa
oh oh oh whoa
Oh oh oh warrior woman
Oh oh oh whoa
oh oh oh whoa
Oh oh oh warrior woman
Track Name: Dorothy
Dorothy
Lyrics and music written by Kathryn Cloward
Music co-written by Barry Rosenbaum

La la la-la la la
La la la-la la la la la
La la la-la la la
La la la-la la la la la

I met an elderly woman named Dorothy
With rosy cheeks and hair set she was lovely
Scooting along in her wheelchair
Down hospital halls with a smile to share
And no matter what the day
She’d smile at me and say

La la la-la la la
La la la-la la la la la
La la la-la la la
La la la-la la la la la
La la

Dorothy’s words were shuffled by her tongue
The vibrancy of a woman once young
A digest magazine carried close
Wishing for time with the ones she loved most
And she hasn’t drifted away
Connecting with others by these words she’d say

La la la-la la la
La la la-la la la la la
La la la-la la la
La la la-la la la la la
La la

As a little girl I wondered what her life had been
And as a teenager I’d meet her again
Her words were slower in time
Years had stretched her once abundant mind
Oh Dorothy would soon pass away
When I feel her angel wings I smile and say

La la la-la la la
La la la-la la la la la
La la la-la la la
La la la-la la la la la
La la

La la la-la la la
La la la-la la la la la
La la la-la la la
La la la-la la la la la

Track Name: Forever
Forever
Lyrics and music written by Kathryn Cloward

I still see you in my dreams at night
Where we walk together and everything’s all right
You’re smiling at me and I’m cuddled close
The moments feel real in the morning I miss you most

Forever is what we’ll be
Even if forever is kept in my memory
Because love like ours transcends time
Forever in my heart you’re forever on my mind

I thought I saw you just the other day
The face of a stranger took my -- breath away
And the tears they formed but I couldn’t let them fall
I remembered what you said allow our joy to soar above it all

Forever is what we’ll be
Even if forever is kept in my memory
Because love like ours transcends time
Forever in my heart you’re forever on my mind

Love pure and true
Forever I’ll be with you
Love connects our energy
Forever you’ll be with me

Forever is what we’ll be
Even if forever is kept in my memory
Because love like ours transcends time
Forever in my heart you’re forever on my mind

Forever
Track Name: You Inspire Me
You Inspire Me
Lyrics and music written by Kathryn Cloward

I know this will never happen
I know there’s just no way
But often in that early quiet hour
I wonder what you’d say
Cuz it’s you I think about when I need
Words to express what I desire
Through you I’m in perfect harmony
You light the spark of my fire

You inspire me
You move me to be
More than I ever dreamed
You inspire me
You inspire me
You help me to see
Beyond and underneath
You inspire me

It’s often just the little things
Like how you listen when I work through
The layers that shift in my mind
And how you say I’m learning you
No one else connects the pieces
It’s so hard to explain
Experiencing someone like this
It’s a love beyond the type we name

You inspire me
You move me to be
More than I ever dreamed
You inspire me
You inspire me
You help me to see
Beyond and underneath
You inspire me

Inspiration’s flowing through me
I’ve opened up to new possibilities

You inspire me
You move me to be
More than I ever dreamed
You inspire me
You inspire me
You help me to see
Beyond and underneath
You inspire me
Track Name: Garden of Love
Garden Of Love
Lyrics and music written by Kathryn Cloward

I’m not the one who broke your heart
Her lies are not of me
Learning to trust again is hard I know
But I’m here and I promise I won’t leave

Yes I’ve been hurt before too
We aren’t so different you and me
I want to keep trying and loving you
Let’s give us room to grow naturally

In the garden of love
Beauty shines and we are free to feel
Happiness and hope gratitude and growth
Knowing only love is real
In the garden of love

Let us envision the life we want
Then plant those seeds to grow
Watered with care we’ll always find
In our garden we’ll never feel alone

Let us be mindful about our space
Tending soil and pulling weeds
Together we can let go of
All that we don’t need

In the garden of love
Beauty shines and we are free to feel
Happiness and hope gratitude and growth
Knowing only love is real
In the garden of love
Beauty shines and we are free to feel
Happiness and hope gratitude and growth
Knowing only love is real
In the garden of love
In the garden of love
In the garden of love
In the garden of love
Track Name: Ripple Love
Ripple Love
Lyrics and music written by Kathryn Cloward
Music co-written by Barry Rosenbaum

Walking around wounded
So many in pain
Living within patterns
Of imprinting that remains

We can heal
We can shine
We can shift
We can unify

We’re all in this together connected Divinely
The light shining within you shines within me
We all have a choice in every moment we breathe
Let’s choose to ripple love let peace be our energy

Shifting our perception
Expect miracles of change
We may look different
But our hearts beat the same

We can heal
We can shine
We can shift
We can unify

We’re all in this together connected Divinely
The light shining within you shines within me
We all have a choice in every moment we breathe
Let’s choose to ripple love let peace be our energy

It only takes one of us for a movement to begin
Our ripple effect starts from within

We’re all in this together connected Divinely
The light shining within you shines within me
We all have a choice in every moment we breathe
Let’s choose to ripple love let peace be our energy

We’re all in this together connected Divinely
The light shining within you shines within me
We all have a choice in every moment we breathe
Let’s choose to ripple love let peace be our energy

Track Name: I Held His Hand
I Held His Hand
Lyrics and music written by Kathryn Cloward

A plaid dress and knee high white socks
And shiny black Mary Jane shoes
A little girl full of wonder
On her first day of school

He held my hand as he walked by my side
He helped me feel brave with the courage to try
And with a smile so wide he looked at me in my eyes
He said my baby girl you’re my joy my pride

An aisle of white flowers
And blue skies overlooking the bay
A celebration of love and hope
For a storybook wedding day

He held my hand as he walked by my side
He helped me feel cherished the day I was a bride
And with a smile so wide he looked at me in my eyes
He said my baby girl you’re my joy my pride

Early morning on Thanksgiving
In a hospital delivery room
A crimson haired baby was born
And a family tree grew

He held my hand as he sat by my side
He helped me feel worthy to guide my son through life
And with a smile so wide he looked at me in my eyes
He said my baby girl he’ll be your joy your pride

His breath was getting weaker
But there was nothing left unsaid
We knew the moment was nearing fast
As he laid in a hospital bed

I held his hand as I sat by his side
I helped him feel at peace to move towards the light
As tears flooded my eyes he gazed at me one last time
And I said daddy it’s okay to go we’ll be just fine

I held his hand
Yes I held his hand
I held his hand
As he journeyed to the other side
