Richard posted his lyric dedicated to his mother-in-law on archive2012.fawmers.org/songs/15979
I was trying to create music to it but nothing worthy was coming. One day I was just sitting at a piano struggling with my inspiration to come and I just wanted to play something. Different melodies were coming but nothing I liked. Then this music came and I recorded it. I called it "When There is No Inspiration". I posted it on Bandcamp and put the link on 50/90. Later in the evening I just realized that this music would work with the lyric! So I've changed the title and sent it to Dawn. Please listen to our new demo:

we've heard it said many times before
nobody had a bad word to say
and most times that might not be true
but Clara, it is when it comes to you
may the great zeppalin in the sky
carry you heavenbound
with a rain tear in every eye
I'm sure flowers will be all around
abundant in color and so full of life
blossoming as your soul does rise
triumphant as the day you were born
everyday from now on, at the break of dawn
clouds will smile and birds shall sing a sweet, sweet song
celebrating a life like yours that knew not from wrong
watching the angels within your view
oh Clara how we love and cherish you!
