Goodbye

Everyone lives, and everyone dies. Some people can talk about death, and some people can’t.

I’m one of those people who can’t.

I tried to be brave and posted a new song to my YouTube Channel tonight.

Here is the story behind my song, “Goodbye“.

In January, I lost my grandmother. She passed away suddenly. I didn’t have the chance to tell her, once more, how much I loved her and how glad I was to have her in my life.

My heart was broken. I felt numb. But, I didn’t want to talk about it. I couldn’t talk about it.

In May, I lost my aunt to cancer. Before she passed, I had opportunities to tell her how much I loved her and how much she meant to me. But, the last time I saw her, she was experiencing a comatose state. I told her, one last time, how much I loved her, but I don’t know if she even knew I was there…

I wrote “Goodbye” because this was the only way I could release the sorrow, pain, and regret I was experiencing.

I wrote the song in May. I was crying when I wrote the song, and for a while, I cried every time I played the song. Sometimes, I still cry when I play the song.

I know this song is sad, but I hope that you will find comfort in the fact that everyone can relate to each other. We all experience great sorrow after losing the people we love. But whether it’s through songs, or stories, or memories, we can honor the loved ones we’ve lost.

 

Today is September 11. For those of you who lost someone in the September 11th tragedy, I am so sorry for your loss, and I am so sorry that you were never able to say goodbye to them.
