Dawn began to play the tune that she had composed and when she had finished Jim said it’s very good but it needs some work. Now listen to what we can do with it when we add some different instruments. The organ had a drum beat built in and different tempo’s then Jim added several guitars and even a small orchestra in the background and then played it back.

“Wow that sounds brilliant.’

“Now leave it with me; I will play around with it after dinner and see if we can put some words to it.’

As they came down stairs Jim was humming away to the tune in his head then he came up with the first line. Jim rushed for a pencil and wrote:


You came only for a while

Captured me with that lovin’ smile

Your hair and skin so soft to touch

Never knew love hurt so much


Emotions in my head that ache

They are the hardest one’s to heal

Losing you was hard to take

Now you are gone my heart can’t feel



Lovin’ you has brought us pain

Without you how can I be the same

Though I can’t blame you leaving me

Through all my insecurities

Broken hearts can never mend


I won’t forget that lovin’ kiss

Or the beauty and your grace

Thinking of the love we missed

As I look upon our daughter’s face



They say time can change and time can heal

The sorrow of a broken heart

When all was lost I broke the deal

And lost out on a love so real

Broken hearts can never mend

Yeah, broken hearts can n-e -v-e-r mend.



Jim sat back after he’d written it then showed it to Dawn.

“This is good, can we go up and try it out after dinner?’

“I don’t see why not. Rosina can help with backing vocals.’

Rosina had made the Bolognese that they were meant to have the Saturday before

Dawn ate it all and had two pieces of garlic bread as well.’
