WORDS CANNOT DESCRIBE                 
 
WORDS CANNOT CONTAIN
WORDS CANNOT

words cannot describe
words cannot describe
               your leaving

words cannot contain
words cannot contain
               the pain of
                      your leaving
                      your dying

words are empty shells
words can only tell
               the shell of the story

inside is the pain
inside I cry in vain

               cannot
                      stop
                             your leaving

you don't want to go
       my son
               this story shows

                      your pain
                             at your leaving

my son
       if I could hold
               the pain
                      your pain
       I would you know

my heart
       can't contain the grief
               of your leaving

my heart cannot contain
       my longing in vain
               to change
                      your dying

my son
       I cry again
               inside my shell of pain

       my shell it cracks
       my life it lacks

words to contain
       your leaving

words cannot describe
words can't bring alive
       my son who has died

       leaving
               a child
               grandson of mine
                     just three
               and you have died

words cannot contain
can't bring alive
               my son who has died

               his life just begun
               a three year old son
               a wife by his side
               her grief like a tide
                     no holding it contained
                     a world of love and pain

my son

my son

       I lack words

but I hope you can hear
       the love so near

the love like a tide
the grief that you have died

I just cannot believe

       my son

I am numb

       my son

I can't believe

       my son

I am numb

       my son

               has died

song cry, guitar alone, son has died


I've known Ed, a musican friend, for a long time.

Then came spring 2007.

I knew Ed's son had terminal cancer, was dying. I knew the death was coming. One day I emailed Ed for a phone number, and got back a brief message - the phone number and the message that he was in Calgary for his son's funeral. His son had died.

I "heard" the words that open this song - words cannot describe, words cannot descibe - words cannot contain, words cannot contain.

I sat down and followed the words in my head, words that came with the simple opening melody.

I sent Ed an email - my sympathy for his great loss. I wasn't sure Ed would welcome the song, but I couple of days later I sent the words.

It was a few months before we sat down, in the back yard of his place. We ended up with a rough recording, the first version that is here now. The words and opening melody are as they came. Ed found the bridge melody. The arrangement is his, but I was there, to help bring the song alive as it sounded inside me.

More is to be done, but this first version will stay.
