A ballad.

Written by Robert Osmond. Recorded by Pennan Brae.

It is about a man watching his wife slip away to Alzheimer's after 5 decades of marriage.
It’s another rainy night
In this cold shore-lined town
Water beads down my window
Dies without a sound

Leaves fly through the sky
Trees dance back and forth
Winds announce their presence
Howling from the North

Sit here silently
Watch the scene unfold
Grown man weeps utterly
Can’t believe what he’s told

His girl of fifty years
Can’t recall his name
Eyes the storm outside
Feels the anger feels the pain

If you don’t mind Just sit low
Tell you a story
You’ll want to know
‘Bout the old man
Whose love forgot about him

He was an old man
He didn’t understand
What happened to the woman
Whose life he gave
What happened to the woman
Who forgot his name

Thunder softly speaks
Past the lightning of the sky
Sunshine rays stray slowly in
Once clouds take heed and die

Hurting tears always fall
Past the strike of the heart
Tears of joy overcome
As the darkness departs

Sit here with hands in lap
Tears flow from his eyes
Want to give him all my help
Just a boy am I

He’s seen the world at war Times that caused him strife
His soul is hit again
He loses the love of his life

I’m sorry man but I don’t know what to do
I wish that I did ‘cause I feel bad for you

Though I see not the years Of wisdom that you do
Reunited you will be
Forever in your youth x
