My mom wrote this poem in 2007 when she was going through chemotherapy to treat her breast cancer. She was reminiscing about a day when her grandsons Ian (7) and Zachary (4) had accompanied her with bongo drums, maracas and tambourines as she played her Yamaha Clavinova to a Latin beat. She said it was so much fun and they had such a good time! From her poem I have tried to create a song that captures the essence of their experience. It is written for voice, trumpet, and piano. I am sure other instruments could be added. I incorporated little variations of When the Saints go Marching in to portray their jam session while also alluding to my mom as a Saint who will always be with us in spirit no matter what. When she marches into Heaven I am sure she will be asking Jesus what he wants for dinner. :) For every purchase of this song I will donate one dollar to Breast Cancer Charities of America.
