Moving me to tears. I do hope there there will be something happier to follow. Christmas always feels like this for me.

Sad, of course. But also very beautiful.
Such longing, in both the voice and piano, and despite the sorrow in the words, the uplift in the music is unmistakable. Perhaps the warmth underlying the sorrow in this will give hope to those who hear this who are going through what it describes.

No..Your not alone with these feelings. You can always tell when something is from the heart and when its real. When you lay it out in black and white for all to see with the emotion that I just heard, That takes guts! I had to fight back the tears while listening and I lost. This is sad but oh so beautiful Emily…Thanks for sharing this.

I’d come over with some chocolate and a spare shoulder, but San Diego’s a very long walk. This is reminiscent of Joni Mitchell’s “River”, in being a honest expression of how the holidays can sharpen the pain of loss.

Out of sadness comes great music.

Thanks for your Grief, Loss, Compassion of Love, People and the Earth, A great movement of evolutionary logic in a rational manner is needed for the future as our biggest threat make become the whole of humankind as our resources become more scarce. We are driven by Competetion and Beliefs possibly leading to further damaging consequences. I read one theory where they say compassionate people suffer from depression would that say the normal people are not compassionate? or greedy? are we looking at Evolution?.. go figure - may we live/pass in peace. Thanks
“Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consiousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted
to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom.”
