One of the things that my mom, sister and I used to do is to sing in the car. We would get our "microphones" out and just sing away. On Saturday my sister, Aunt and I went to watch my cousin's daughter in a dance competition. My sister and I love to sing along to the musical Rent. Seasons of Love was pretty hard but I got through it and we went on singing our hearts out. In the movie/musical there's a part that shows an AIDS support group. They all start singing this very simple yet beautiful song called Will. The lyrics are...
Will I lose my dignity
will someone care
will i wake tomorrow
from this nightmare
I lost it. My mom would always say how she wanted to handle her cancer and death with dignity and grace. Which she did. I have not been able to get this song out of my head. It's so simple yet describes so much.
Here's a youtube link to the part of the show....I hope someday this will all get easier.
