DESCRIPTION
This is the story of a long-distance love relationship. I wrote this song and a few more at 73 years of age while taking cancer treatment. It took my mind off things. Every once in a while, a story comes into my head and a melody soon follows. I play guitar, keyboard, uke a little bit, and attempt to sing. I wrote three songs that year and sent them to various online studios to be recorded. I'm not a good singer or musician but these days there is plenty of help out there for people like me.
