Hi,friends !

My intention was not to swamp this site with
my music, but considering the tunes I have
posted I could not leave you without the
tribute I wrote to my dear wife and which
it was almost overwhelmingly difficult to
sing for a very, very long time as the words
got stuck in my throat ! I am glad I finally
managed to get it out of me !:)

What an absolutely fantastic tribute to your wife!

I could feel the love you have for her and your pain in losing her in this song.

My eyes were watering.

Ps – with your musical ability feel free to swamp this site anytime you want too.
My mind is like my Internet browser: 19 tabs open, 3 of them are frozen & I have no idea where the music is coming from.

64 bit Win 10 Pro - the latest BiaB and RB - Roland Octa-Capture audio interface - a ton of software and some hardware.

So pretty and sad. Like Mario, it made my eyes mist hearing the love in your voice. I hope the music helps you through your grief.

Hi Rob and Josie !:)

Thank you both for giving this
tribute a listen, I really do appreciate
your kind comments very much !
I can tell you that without my dear kids
(I have three children: Dennis, Danita and Daniela),
my music, and the guys on the Shadows Music Club (Perth Site)
I would surely have perished already. I should not forget
all my other good friends all around the world.
Together all these factors have helped me thru the darkest period
of my life! I won´t get rid of my grief ever, but I
have learned to live with it one day at the time and with the
help of my kin and friends I have managed to cope with it
and hopefully will do so henceforth til my earthly end.
I am not afraid of dying any more now that I know that her spirit soars around
me somewhere ready to welcome me when my time will come !

Dear Dani,

This is such a wonderful song and such a beautiful way to paint memories of your wife.

I recently used a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson in a song I wrote. The quote went, "It's not the length of life that matters but the depth". From listening to you sing this inspirational tribute to Benita, it's easy to tell that the rivers of life ran very deep for the two of you. It sounds to me like you have been blessed.

May all that is good come your way,

Hello Dani
That is a lovely smooth tribute to your late wife. Beautifully sensitive.
Nice backing in BIAB - I guess an older midi based version.
best regards

Hi Dani,
I'd like to quote Noel:
"This is such a wonderful song and such a beautiful way to paint memories of your wife."
A very touching song.

So warm and heartfelt, absolutely beautiful.

Now we are even, as you tugged right back at my heart strings with this one Dani.

A beautiful tribute indeed.
