In 2007 my step son had cancer.
He was not expected to live.
My former children were in Ireland.
I was working in Germany.
So I traveled home each Friday night to spend the weekend with my former children.
I was so tired at the end of the week I would arrive in Dusseldorf Airport totally exhausted.
I was “wasted” after my hard weeks work.
But I had to go on for the sake of my former children!!
So I decided I would play myself a tune as I got on to the plane to take me from Dusseldorf to to Dublin each Friday night.
A tune that would give me the energy and the desire to go on to support my children and my family.
A tune that would uplift me.
A tune that would drive me on.
If ever Axel or the lads see my comments?
May the good lord bless you boys for what you did for me!!
Here is the song that I played over and over every Friday night as I returned to my former children to care for them while their brothers life was in the balance and their mother was with their brother trying to persuade him to fight for his life.
I give you one of the greatest songs of the last 20 years…..
If you know a song better than this? Please tell me!
