It is pretty obvious I love music and it plays a big part of my life. My parents used to talk a lot about the people who wrote the music and lyrics. It was like they gave them a little more respect that the person who did the performing and became the face of the song. It was great lesson and I still appreciate that.
My mother was very ill for a long time before she passed away, yet she always loved music. Her hearing became a little rough and she often got the lyrics wrong, her pitch and notes were right on. One of the neighbors gave a cd that had this song on it and Mom loved the melody. It is probably a good thing she didn’t get the lyrics.
She had a great sense of humor and I am sure if there is life after death and she realized what the song was about she may have had a different feeling. Still for our family this is now a song that we love and treasure. I hope you enjoy it.
