Liner Notes: 

This song is about missing someone you have loved deeply in whatever context that means for you.

It was inspired by a stranger I met that told me about the death of her wife.

I sat by someone new at band practice last Tuesday who talked with me briefly between music about how she has been trying to stay busy while moving forward after the loss of her wife who died with cancer last year. The tears in her eyes and tenderness in her voice spoke volumes as she spoke about the good days they once had. It was hard to come home from practice with only fragments of her story from of our brief intermittent conversation - wishing I would have had more time to listen to her story and could have comforted her. I have been thinking about her ever since and hope she will be at rehearsal this week.

Hoping someone will put this to music to convey the sentiment I am trying to express.

Lyrics: 

V1
walking down streets
seeing lovers at cafes

riding a bike
by fields of golden hay

playing old songs
with friends and family

strolling through parks
as children run free

C
I find myself
longing for the good old days
longing for more time with you ....
longing for your loving ways
longing and still feeling blue...
no matter what I do...
I miss you ....

V2
watching the sun
turn the sky a golden red

counting the stars
before I go to bed

drifting to sleep
as if to find you in my dreams

holding you close
all night in every scene

C
I find myself
longing for the good old days
longing for more time with you ....
longing for your loving ways
longing and still feeling blue...
no matter what I do...
I miss you...

B
it has been awhile
since you’ve been gone
but I search for your face in a crowd
and I hear your voice
in the music of wind songs
and find your love high in the clouds

C
I find myself
longing for the good old days
longing for more time with you ....
longing for your loving ways
longing and still feeling blue...
no matter what I do...
I miss you...

So tender and full of love. Even though it is about grief, is so touching.

Wow - so beautifully conveyed. This is truly a heart-toucher right here, for sure. It's a terrible thing to contend with the loss of a loved one. And as you have mentioned, a loss hurts...
