By Jenny Leigh Hodgins 2014
It’s tough, these life and death moments
When I feel your heart with me
And sense all my memories with you
From recent years to early childhood memories
As if they are all bundled up in one big roll
Like a collage of photos snapshotting our love.
Overwhelmed by the swelling of my feelings
I hear your thunderous roar, your unstoppable courage
Resonates in my ears, like a dynamic symphony
Playing a million notes of harmonious melodies
All of which blasts your triumphant march from life into after life…
The audio of piano music on this page is Claire De Lune by Debussy, performed by Jenny Leigh Hodgins for her father’s memorial service, January, 2014. This piece was her father’s favorite music and requested by him.
