In The Light Of The Sun
The basic melody of this song is a piano piece I wrote a long time ago, I must have been about 19 years old, and it is one of those melodies you keep on playing through the years.
It was only a couple of years ago that I wrote lyrics for it and turned it into a song.
This way it became actually the first song of my "Songs of Love and Loss" project.
The song is a reflection of a loved one that is gone. The memories linger on but eventually they will fade like the scent in his/her clothes.
And in the long run, all of our lives will be forgotten,
we are only like specks of dust, dancing in the light of the sun...
Although this song has a melancholic undertone, I don’t consider it as a sad song.
It is like when you are looking at the universe and realize your own insignificance in the cosmic scheme, that you can let go and enjoy what you have while you still can...
Early 2014 I created a new version and a video for the song.
