April 30, 2020  -  User Showcase Song - Weerzien

My late mother always wrote poems. Mostly for herself. As a kid I listened breathlessly to those nice words I didn't understand. Just recently I found her poems book. I thought it would be nice if her words can come alive again. I picked one poem to be the lyrics for this song. Probably some of you won't understand a word of what I sing so I have tried to translate the words. In English they don't rhyme of course.

I can tell you this project wasn't easy. At first I had to sing in Dutch, which I had rarely done, secondly I had to alter a lot of sentences to make them rhyme and not sound outdated since the poem dates from 1963. And thirdly, I had to convince myself that the song sounded good enough to post it here for you. That was the biggest challenge.
