My dad passed away almost 12 years ago. He was a wonderful father. I don't really remember that many of the gifts he gave me (although he gave me a lot.) But I will always remember how much he loved me. He constantly reminded me of how much he loved me, no matter what we ever were going through. I just finished writing this song as a tribute to him for Father's Day. I know many of us on this forum have parents that have passed, and I hope this song will touch you and help you this Father's Day.

Love That Never Dies - SOUNDCLOUD

I played the piano and strings using various softsynths. The piano is actually 2 layered sounds both from Native Instruments (Grandeur and Gentleman), and the strings are a combination of Native's Session Strings and Logic Pro X strings. There is also Native's Vintage Organ in there. The rest are RealTracks...

RealTracks in song: ~367:Guitar, Electric, Background Dreamy Ev 065

Love That Never Dies
©Stephen W. Young

There's a picture on my wall
And It means the world to me
‘Cause that picture says it all
It’s not just faded memories

You taught me how to tie my shoes
Brush my teeth and comb my hair
And always stand up for the truth
And not forget to say my prayers

I haven't taken you for granted
I always wanted you to know
Just how deep your words were planted
They are deep within my soul

So let the evening breeze come gently
And sing your lullabies
'Cause I have so many memories
Of a love that never dies

You taught me how to treat my wife
How to work and be a man
The important things of life
You taught me who I am

You said to put things where I found them
'Cause I may need them again
And so I keep you where I found you
You're in my heart until the end

So let the evening breeze come gently
And sing your lullabies
'Cause I have so many memories
Of a love that never dies

Such a beautiful song!
My father passed away last year but I never knew him (he left my mother when she was pregnant). Your song reminded me of how it could have been...

Very well done!

Lovely stuff Steve.
The decay on one side of the reverb/delay on your vocals gets a slight snare rattle sound that reminds me of the effect that happens when on stage and the snare responds to the vocalist talking etc. It's not bad or anything just interesting in the way it decays to a single side.
Really nice arrangement and mix.
You record your voice well.

Steve that was very beautiful. My mother passed away Dec 19th 2017 so your song brought tears to my eyes. My mom was the most important thing in my world. My father died when he was 28 years old fro lukima. (Bone and Blood Cancer) so my mom was mom and dad since I was 2 years of age. I was almost 50 when she passed away fro (brain cancer) a tumor in the brain called a gleoblastoma, and I have a love for her that never dies just like you talk about in your song. Thank you for writing this song, it really got to my heart strings.

Floyd, I always look forward to hearing from you. Glad you like that particular line from the song. It's my favorite. Very true of my thoughts of my dad. Every now and then stumble into a line that I like. smile

Your were blessed to have such a wise and loving father and he was equally blessed to have a son that learned from and appreciated him.

As floyd said "everything about this is beautiful." And the verse he quoted is also our favorite of the write - a write packed with thought provoking and well crafted lines.

We couldn't agree more and there is little left to say other than your vocal and instrumental performances perfectly delivered the sentiment.

Thank you for sharing it.

J&B

Thank you for your time and posting your comments! I'm ever aware that not everyone has both parents around, and it is a sad situation. I'm sure your mother did all she could do to fill in the gap, and you were greatly loved. I hope this song was an encouragement to you, and you can apply your sentiments to your mom.

Great tribute, really beautiful and touching in all its simplicity, message deep from your soul. Marktree and solo fiddle are nice additions for the mood. Your vocal track is engineered very well.

WOW Steve, what a spectacular tribute!! I would smile down (or up, whatever the case might be) if one of my kids wrote something so beautiful about me. Such a pretty melody, such a sweet vocal, and a beautiful lyric. WONDERFUL!!! Take care. Greg

Gorgeous....absolutely, stunning, simply beautiful.

Simple and understated production made this shine. your piano skills are evident on this.

Nicely, nicely done.

Excellent all the way around from the simple production to the, lovely vocals to the touching lyrics.
