The first instrument I learned to play was the piano. I spent over 7 years having lessons. My sight reading used to be really great, but years of piano roll composition and Amiga step time sequencing mean that I struggle to read music now, which is a shame. But I still love the sound of the piano. It can stir the soul... releasing shades of emotion, from joy through to sadness.
This composition is the fruits of 3 hours on a sunny Saturday afternoon in March 2012.
Back in March I couldn't tell people the real reason I wrote this... but it was how I was feeling at the time. After many months of soul searching, I was about to leave my wife of 16 years, and my 14 year old son. Not an easy thing to contemplate and far more difficult to go through with.
Hopefully one day soon I'll listen to this song without feeling quite so raw, and rest easier in the knowledge that my son understands why, in the end, even though it didn't feel like it at the time, my leaving was the best thing for all concerned.
