My mother passed away in 2018. Once she was gone, her house sat unattended for quite some time. One day, I stopped by to check on things and pick something up. It was rainy and damp and I noticed the deck boards were beginning to wear out. I had the title to this song pop in my head.
I snapped a photo and came home to start writing. This little piano melody was the result. Layered with some ambient storm sounds, this track has a moody, melancholic feel to it that begs the mind to remember the past while realizing that time still moves on.
