The ability or the willingness to see tomorrow seems simple...yet so many folks find it elusive -- and that is sad. I often ponder this. The delicate balance of the past, the present and tomorrow really is the key. And, I am immensely blessed to have a wife that perfectly threads that needle and serves as a daily example for me. Thanks for the opportunity to hear this song.

I enjoyed your song and It stands well as it is. The song is well written and produced As others have noted, lyrically we are taken on a journey from loneliness to hope. To me, the style and message of the song lends itself to a different musical arrangement, building from a simpler, less busy beginning, by maybe utilizing a single instrument and then building the arrangement more complex through each section. This would musically take us on the journey along with the lyrics. This is not criticism of your fine arrangement. I may just hear it through a different ear and hope I'm making sense. It' hard to keep my explanation brief.

Hi Bud,

Thanks for taking time to have a listen and to comment. Ever since I saw "Gone With The Wind" decades ago, Scarlet O'Hara's line "After all, tomorrow is another day" has stayed with me. It's so true. Janice is a wise woman!

All the best,
Noel

Hi c_fogle,

Welcome to the forums smile

Also, thank you for have a listen and for taking time to write such detailed comments. I appreciate it. I know that Brenda, my co-writer, will also appreciate your comments.

You raise some good points about the arrangement. I have to confess that I was so busy assembling the song and getting the balances into a workable state that I never really gave the arrangement a great deal of thought. I should have done. You, Floyd, Pat and Achordcaster all seem to agree!!!! When I get a few spare minutes, I'll have a play around with everyone's ideas in mind and see where it takes me.

Once again, "Thank you!"
Noel
