Take Me Home

Description

I wrote this song for an elderly patient who was on dialysis and who was no longer allowed to go home. I asked her to tell me about being at home, and wrote the song using the words she described her life with. When I sang it for her, she cried – she felt ‘heard’. A week later she decided to go off dialysis knowing that she would die shortly thereafter. I realized she was very religious and perhaps had really wanted to ‘go home’ to be with the Father, and the song maybe gave her permission to feel that.
