My dad died about two weeks before I got married. We didn’t have a great relationship. He and my mom had divorced after a long marriage, and you could say he left a lot of bridges burning both with her and with his children.
For a Catholic person, no is ever really gone. I kept thinking about him and praying for him after he had died.
Years later, despite the rocky relationship, there was a moment when I realized I had come to peace with him. I was driving to work and realized, suddenly, that all the good memories I had with him were the ones that resonated most deeply with me. I had no bitterness in me. It was a moment of relief. I could forgive him and feel free myself.
That’s what this song is about. I hope you enjoy it and find peace in your own relationships.
