Topic: The Better Place
On the car ride home last year from a family reunion, Eric Clapton's "Tears In Heaven" came on the radio, and the words for this song presented themselves. I grabbed the pen and paper and wrote and wrote. I've worked on it here and there since, in memory of my daughter, CJ who was stillborn (quite a few years ago now). Over this past weekend, I lost the last of my grandparents, which spurred me to finish the song yesterday.
For the record, I don't know what I believe. When I consider that death may simply be the end, not a new start, I do believe that for some that simple nothingness that may be there is better than the suffering they face in the end of their lives here. My Grandpa certainly is in a better place now, even if it's just the end of his suffering here, though I sure hope he's been reunited with Grandma.
I do hope there's a real "Better Place" all the same.
- yup, I finally created a soundcloud account too -
What constitutes excellent music is in the ears of the listener.
