The Songs (Tag: grief)

Walking Distance

For Father's Day 2013, I received the book, As I Knew Him, by Anne Serling. It is a moving tribute to her father, Rod Serling, whom I greatly admired.

Anne’s book addresses the deep grief she experienced following his death at the young age of 50. The book was the inspiration for this song, named after a classic Twilight Zone episode featuring Gig Young. The song speaks to the grief that all of us experience when we lose someone dear to us, and it offers a perspective that can calm our anxious spirit. I forwarded a copy of the song to Anne, who liked it very much. I hope you will too.

The Last Time I Cry

I wrote this song after listening to the testimonies of women who had abortions earlier in their lives and hearing them talk about the prolonged impact those decisions had on their lives. There is coming a day when God reunites them with their child, and they will cry their last tear.

Don't Cry For Me

A few years ago I attended the funeral of a relative. A couple of weeks later, driving alone in my car, I envisioned what a loved one might say to me if they could open the window of heaven and speak to me. This simple song expresses what I heard that day, and it has touched the hearts of everyone who has heard it.
