A Powerful Memorial Song that Will Touch Your Heart and Make You Cry

A Powerful Memorial Song that Will Touch Your Heart and Make You Cry

It is my privilege to introduce you to this moving memorial song.

It's such an moving song that if you're feeling too emotional over the passing of someone you love, you may be unable to watch and listen to it right now

Having recently lost my dad, both my husband and I have wept during this song. The song's music, message, and story will deeply touch your soul. I'm sure of it.

The song was written and dedicated to two of the band member's fathers, who passed away much too soon.

You'll notice when you watch it that the two members in the middle only do the backup singing during this song. Without knowing for sure, I suspect the song is in honor of their dads. 

I know for a fact I wouldn't be able to do any singing after the loss of my own dad. As with most families, we could barely speak, much less sing. You can cut this pain with a knife.

My dad passed away on March 5th, 2013, and there isn't a second that goes by that I don't have him in my thoughts. I've written so much about Dad; some may think I've written too much, but when you've loved someone so deeply, and they've loved you unconditionally in return for your entire life, there's a part of you that will belong to them beyond human existence, and 'til the end of time. 

Missing someone this much is almost like bleeding tears. Trying to find a way to explain it to others is hard, actually impossible. Only those who feel this know this.

It's also the strangest pain. Although it's gut-wrenching to miss a person this much, it's a feeling I would never trade. Without it, I would have never known and been loved so perfectly by the most wonderful dad a girl could ask for. So, to have had this Father in my life for 78 years, I'll gladly take this pain now. 

I'm grateful and thankful to have been so loved. Because of his love, I work to spread more goodness wherever and whenever possible. When I'm feeling sad or wronged (which isn't often), I remember all the blessings in my life: my dad, my mom, my brothers, my children, my husband, my friends online and offline, and mostly the love I carry inside of me through all of life's challenges, no matter how big.

That is, for me, the incredible power and gift of love.

Go hug someone you love today; I'll be sure to do it many times.

In memory of my dad, I wish I could hear your voice again. Thank you for always being there for me, for all of us - You are my reason, Dad.

  1. This song is a beautiful tribute to your memories of your dad, Barbara. And the words of the song work equally as well for a beloved husband of 45 years, gone now 7 years and missed dearly every day. He may be gone, but never forgotten. Thank you for the reminder.

    1. Pat, so sorry for your loss - my heart goes out to you, it's not easy to go through

  2. What a fabulous song and such a talented group of young men! Thank you for sharing it with us. For those of us whose lives have been truly blessed with wonderful parents can certainly grasp the message and difficulty of preforming such a song. The words could easily extend to and cover many other relationships as well. I thought of my brother as I was listening. Loving and being loved is what makes this life worthwhile. For those of us who love so deeply, the grief and loss is overwhelming and for a very long time feels insurmountable.

    1. So sorry for you loss too Cynthia, I can't imagine losing a brother - very sorry, has to be so hard. What you say is bang on - when we love this deeply, it's quite overwhelming.

  3. hmm, I miss my Dad and Mom and 2 sisters every day too. That kind of pain never really goes away. Thanks for the music!

    1. very sorry for your loss Heather, that's a lot of loss
