Story

In reflecting back, this song became very much a part of my healing process after losing both my parents a year apart. Four years in the making, it still cuts close to the bone.

Lyrics



October Moon, saving grace, remember this place
Papered walls, dusty halls, time won’t erase
The memories here in my heart,
Here in my heart

I sit here in your room, by the light of the moon
Throwing shadows on the wall, they don’t help me at all
Still I feel you all around me
Whisper to me

Mourning doves and garden gloves, rusty tools in the shed
The climbin’ tree, your love for me
Nothing more needs to be said

Blossoms in the spring, red birds on the wing
Dogwood in the yard
Yes, all of these things
Keep you close to me
Close to me

Friends come to help me load the boxes in the car
All treasures packed, don’t look back
Just one more stroll around the yard

October Moon, saving grace, remember this place
Papered walls, dusty halls, a mother’s warm embrace
Turn the key, don’t look back
Turn the key, don’t look back
Don’t look back
