From Wikipedia article: 

 

Kate Wolf (Kathryn Louise Allen) (January 27, 1942 – December 10, 1986) was an American folk singer and songwriter. Though her career was relatively short, she had a significant impact on the folk music scene, and many musicians continue to cover her songs. Her best-known compositions include "Here in California", "Love Still Remains", "Across the Great Divide", "Unfinished Life", and "Give Yourself to Love".

Born in San Francisco, California, she started her music career in the band Wildwood Flower before recording ten records as a solo artist. Her songs have since been recorded by artists such as Nanci Griffith and Emmylou Harris (whose recording of "Love Still Remains" was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1999).

 

She died in 1986, at age 44, after a long battle with leukemia. 

 

See Here, She Said 

"The sun is sinking in the sea,
as she sings my life for me.

A tapestry of children's smiles,
wrapped in memories and miles.

You better do the things you dream.
"See here", she said, "You know it seems
that children grow, and lovers sleep ~
the time that's left is your's to keep."
 
Her song rises like the wind
and falls and takes me far away.
Sorceress on hammered keys,
her fingers play my destiny.

"See here", she said, "You know it seems
that children grow, and lovers sleep ~
the time that's left is your's to keep."
 
~

It tears from her like a cry,
and soothes me like a lullaby.

I can see her sing through half-closed eyes
"See here", she said, "dreams never lie."
My dreams are visions on the wind,
of places I have never been.
Pictures only I can see,
songs that sleep inside of me.

"See here", she said, "It must be me."

"See here", she said, "You know it seems
that children grow, and lovers sleep ~
the time that's left is your's to keep."

Brother Warrior 

"Gentle warrior, with your heart like gold and a rainbow in your eyes.
Brave companion, do you see a world shining in the sky?
With your body dancing like an arrow.
Spreading joy, beneath your feet.  
And your hands, they wave like tall grass.
In the wind, as you speak.

With the shyness of a small child,
and the wisdom of a sage.
I tell you now, there is no reason to be afraid.

~

Brother warrior, there are none of us who walk this path alone.
Spirit healer is the only life that we have ever known.
I see your smile in the sunlight,
I hear your song, in the rain
and I hold you here inside me,
feel your love, know your pain.

At this time when the earth is waking,
to the dawn of another age,
I tell you now, there is no reason to be afraid ~ "


We are crying for a vision
that all living things can share,
and those who care are with us everywhere..."
