Song Description

It's a piano instrumental with female vocal and flute accompaniment.

Story Behind the Song

This song was written after my father died in 2000. It was about my mother's grief and hope for better times.


The unfinished New York Times crosswords
Are piled on a painted chair
And she's just sitting there
Watching dust motes in the air
She's missing him.

The phone hasn't rung in so long
The figurines are listening
Such good friends
So she hums an old love song
But she can't remember the end
She's missing him.

Everywhere her eyes touch
A memory lingers
She can open it like an old love card
But fingering the images
And whispering the words is so hard.

Maybe she'll find tomorrow
That the wind blows sorrow away
Laughter, delight will stay
But first she would have to stop
Missing him
She's missing him.
