    This is a song that has great meaning to me. My mother suffered with dementia for most of the last 7 or 8 years of her life, and as her only child I became like her parent. Having watched this strange and difficult process, and lived through it with her, I began to write this song. I've tried to capture the emptiness and despair of what dementia, or Alzheimer's, causes its victims. At the same time I wanted to express my vision of her ultimate release from suffering. I hope it offers some comfort and hope for others who have had, or are having such experiences.

      @Chet Guida: I'm glad you got the feeling of it Chet. This one is from personal experience with my mother who passed away four years ago from complications with dementia so it really is from the heart. Thanks.

      Sound like Gordon lightfoot - and that can't be bad. This is a good melancholy song. Like that background ahhhhhhhh that comes in. Very effective

      Wow! What great insight and tenderness in handling this very complex process. Very poignant...and sadly depicts what many dementia/Alzheimer's patient go through. Working in a nursing home, I get to see the many different phases that this particular pathway in life winds. For the patient, the spouse, the family and the neighborhood of friends and staff who witness this demise. How many times do I hear"You should have known him/her a few years ago. It's a shame where he/she is today".
