For years my Mother has wanted me to write a song for her (she said I had written something for everyone but her) but everytime I tried it always seemed too hoaky. I was down visiting her a few months ago and it struck me how old we had gotten and how quickly it had seemed to happen... in the blink of an eye. That's when the idea for this piece started.
