Story

 

Lately I've been watching my mother slowly lose her memory and I've been sitting with a feeling of sadness for awhile. I guessed there might be a song in it. This one would not be rushed and emerged in its own good time...

Lyrics

GONE © Ann Leung
Do you remember when, the band played our song?
and we talked 'til dawn, you and I, facing the sun
and we were gone, gone, gone, gone, 
we were gone, gone gone.

The weather is nice, dear. Magnolias cup the breeze.
Shall we walk by the river? You & I?

The kettle is still warm, you steal more sleep
I'll be dressed by six. Shall I bring bread home tonight?

and I'll be gone, gone, I'll be gone, I'll be gone, I'll be gone

The sun is shining. Birds are calling, calling calling

You take milk, but no sugar. I'll find your favourite mug
Shall we fold clothes today? 
It's what you did when you remembered my name.

but now you're gone, gone, you're gone, you're gone you're gone

The weather is nice, dear. Magnolias cup the breeze.
Shall we walk by the river, You and I facing the sun,
Shall we go?
