hard way to love

I’d like to share a few songs over the next week or so that I wrote a few years ago. I’ve shared some over the years. Just used my cell phone to record these rough ideas, using my guitar and sometimes blowing into the harp. They are not in any way polished. Some are pure silly, some sad, and a couple of them a bit uncivilized.

I wrote hard way to love as my father was struggling at the end of his life with Parkinson’s Disease. As I often do, I ignore the reality of these situations even when all the signs are right in my face. I knew he was getting worse but I thought we’d still have a few years together. We only had a couple of weeks. His love, our love, inspired this song.
