This song means a lot too me, as there has been so many of my loved ones who have passed away. I composed the melody and the lyrics to this song ''TREASURE IN MY HEART'', as I'll always have fond memories of them.
Although this is a fictional song, there is a piece in the last line of the verse - which is a sad truth ; it's about my 2nd cousin. She was a paramedic, who attended many accidents, and helped so many people. Yet, she herself - just engaged to be married- developed Leukemia. The wedding date was brought forward, and believe they married in Hospital. They unfortunately had only 3 weeks of married life together, when she passed away with her young husband by her side. The sadness thing I learned was that she was BURIED IN HER WEDDING DRESS. Then exactly 6 months later her mother (my cousin) had an Asthma attack and she too passed away. I've never made this public knowledge before but feel now is the right time- that Caroline and her beautiful daughter should be acknowledged as part of the inspiration for this song.
Now you all know the brief story behind the creation of this song. Even the music producer thought the last verse was very ''DISTURBING'', and I guess it is.
But the positive theme of the song is Treasure your friends and loved ones whilst you have them; but for those who have lost a loved one you can still treasure their memories. With the loss of my own family members, all I can do is ''TREASURE IN MY HEART'' those 'Special' though fleeting moments in time I was privileged to have with them.
