Great job Thomas. I didn't know. By the timing of this song, it's about the same time I lost my mom. Maybe we were feeling the same energy

Thanks guys...your kind support means a lot to me. I wrote this song before my dad passed...and I didn't have any idea where it came from. My dad had a major stroke a couple of weeks ago...at first he could hear me speak and even answer a word or two...but over a period of the following five days he became weaker each day and seemed to be asleep. On the fifth day, which was Palm Sunday, he died. So now this song is very special to me because I believe he was in a "dream state" somewhere between heaven and earth for those last days. It was the most painful 5 days of my life, but for him I hope the most glorious. I am so sorry to learn you lost your mother recently Mike, I am sure she was very special to have raised someone like you. The heartfelt way you sang this song...I always felt like it meant something to you as well. My dear friend Jean Lui...thank you again so much for lighting a candle for James during your Palm Sunday celebration in Spain...I was at my deepest despair that day and you lifted me up my friend:) Tony...I was unable to return to my studio until last night....but I needed to get back to my passion again...so I managed to upload some files to our new Amazon project...I need to get back in the saddle, because as Jean Lui has said "Music heals everything", and I need a lot of healing right now. I know we are virtual partners in music hear at Kompoz and we all have our separate lives in "the real world" but still...I love you guys for real!

Oh hunny, I'm so sorry!! Sending you all the love and hugs and prayers for comfort. I remember talking about your dad during our conversations over the years. What an incredible man and legacy he left behind. And now he is with our KING! Can you imagine? I can't and I can't wait to meet him in heaven! Yes, Jean is right! Music has brought us so close and it heals so much. Kind of strange how much we love and feel for one another without meeting in person but I count you as such a blessing in my life. If you ever need anything, I am here for you, my friend. This song was never finished but it felt good to send you. <3 xoxo https://www.kompoz.com/music/collaboration/896253/file/917557

My dear friend Jen, Thanks so much for your words of comfort:) My dad was 97 and he lived his life happily and for the most part unassisted in his lifelong home up until 5 days before he died. He was the most important person in my life....so even though I am very sad now, we will be soon celebrating his life of love and commitment to his family and friends! And thanks for sending me that beautiful song...just hearing you sing always brings a smile to my face, but that one is very special to me now. We will all be going down to that river someday, and I hope everyone will be as ready as my dad was to make the trip.
