Most of my album "Ever Onward" tells the story of death, deep sorrow and loss. Towards the end the Album's composition period I met my beloved Carrie and was inspired to write about something lighter. This piece is dedicated to her and marks the end of mourning and the start of enjoying the things that only the living can enjoy. It mocks the first piece on the album, "The Wake" with a similar ostinato accompaniment and a very similar melody. The melody is in an uplifting major key and the time signature is shared by the accompaniment and the melody, creating quite a different sentiment than "The Wake"... a very nice bookend to the album.
