To dad

On New Year's Eve 2015 my dad passed away. It was on New Year's Day I got word that he hadn't followed the rest of us into the new year. Even if I knew that he was in poor condition and that he might not have many of years ahead of him, it still wasn't something I expected to happen so soon. In one way it feels good that he got a calm end and I know he appreciated his last time here with us but he leaves a great emptiness behind. With so much love given maybe it's not that strange that his heart couldn't manage more than 69 years.

The day after I got the message I sat down at the piano. I felt that I wanted to make something positive out of the situation. I kept playing the first melody that came to me, all the time thinking about dad. During that day and the day after a song took shape. I just wanted to play and sing something as honest as I could, for my dad. It became a way for me to deal with the grief and a way to speak to dad, to say all the things that I will never be able to say to him again. The song got the name "Loving Heart (Till pappa)" and was played at his funeral. I wish dad could have heard it, but without his passing it would never have been written.

On Valentine's Day 2016 the song was released as a digital single. This is my way of praising you and showing appreciation for having received the honor of being your son. I can not imagine a better father. I love you, dad!

lyrics

Love
There is love
In my heart
For you

Love
So much love
In my heart
For you

Emptiness
There is emptiness
In my heart
You

Memories
There are memories
In my heart
You

I will always see you
As you were to me
The most beautiful and loving

You will always be here
As a part of me
The most beautiful and loving

Jag kommer alltid se dig
Som du var för mig
Så kärleksfull och vacker

Även om du inte längre
Finns här i min famn
Är mitt hjärta fyllt av dig
