My father died from strokes, one by one. He was an energetic, vital man who packed 10 lifetimes into one. He had an unusually bright spirit. He died at the age of 54 completely quadriplegic from the age of 50. He was the only one in my family who was supportive of me and till this day I miss him tremendously. I wrote this song for him. When I used to sing in public more, I used to sing this song and for some reason it touched the hearts of so many, and not because it was about my father, but because so many people had someone in their lives who especially encouraging to them.
