About two years after my brother Noel’s wonderful wife Lorna passed away, I asked if I could come over for coffee and talk about what he had gone through during those difficult times. She fought with cancer for several months. I told him I was gathering thoughts to write a song in her honor. I’ll never forget the comment he made when I asked him what was the hardest part. He said, “first thing in the morning”. I took this story to my friend Gilles Godard and we began writing it. Then it sat quietly on paper for a few years, like it was waiting for the right time.
