    Hi everyone
    I wanted to spread the word about a song that's being released in August/September (We still haven't had a firm date from the record label) in aid of The Alzheimers Society, with their full support

    The single is called ‘The Dimming Of The Light’ all profits from each download of the single will go to the charity (a full £1.00 per download). The song can be heard at www.myspace.com/damianmorgan or at www.reverbnation.com/damianmorganmikedoyle but won't be downloadable until the release date

    The lyrics relate to my own experiences with my Mum (who is in the later stages of Alzheimer's). I remember reading poetry written by carers and finding it very moving and ultimately it helped articulate feelings I had myself...I hope this does the same. I'd really love to hear your opinions on the song.
    Yours sincerely
    Damian

    The Dimming Of The Light



    Hold my hand; remember me

    One more time remember me

    You held these hands through nightmares

    Broken toys and bugbears



    Touch my face; remember me

    One more time remember me

    You saw this face through trouble

    Bullying and stubble



    But this isn’t night, this can’t be right

    Slow and painful

    The dimming of the light



    Speak my name; remember me

    One more time remember me

    This boy you fed and swaddled

    But never mollycoddled



    Say that you remember me

    One more time remember me

    But your memories are broken

    And no words can be spoken



    But this isn’t night, this can’t be right

    Slow and painful

    The dimming of the light



    Before you go remember me

    Just one more time remember me

    I know now you will never

    Your rooms are dark forever



    But this isn’t night, this can’t be right

    Slow and painful

    The dimming of the light

    WOW......Top class

    Hi Damian,

    I read the words and thought it was very moving, then listened to it put to music on your myspace......WOW, tears in my eyes, very moving, you have a very good talent.

    I for one, will definitely be buying it when it becomes available, keep us up to date.

    Thank you for letting us know.

    So glad you liked it

    I found it very hard to cry when my Mum got ill, then I read some poetry online and it opened the floodgates! And it did me the world of good too
    There will be an announcement from Alzheimers Soc when it is released. Their press office will be working to promote it too
    Take care
