About the song (from Mick Davis)
I’m Mick and this is my first live performance recording. Please excuse the clumsy loop creation but one has to start somewhere.
This is a song I wrote late last year and I had been reflecting on for quite some time. I know my sister, Judy, had some trouble dealing with the absence of our mother, Daphne throughout her life as we lost her when we were all children. . Whilst I know little about our mother in a real sense, I do get a feel from others as to the type of lady she was. I wanted to try to reassure Judy that everything was okay and she should ‘treasure every precious moment’ as I believe Daphne would have wanted her to. Whilst this song specifically talks to Judy, I dedicate it to all my siblings, Patsy, Stephen, Jennifer and Judy, as I think we all deserve to know that our mother would be proud of us and the lives we have chosen for ourselves. It’s long and a little self-indulgent but I believe both ladies deserve the time.
Finally special thanks to my son, Marcello Davis, for the inspired video and sound production and his first foray into putting together a music clip.
