Some time ago I was visiting my niece and nephew. On my brother's kitchen counter I notice a card that looked like one of those cards you find in a funeral home at a wake. On it was a picture of a very young girl and I thought "Oh, How sad". When I turned the card over I found a wonderful poem that she had written. It turns out that this little girl loved to write poems. She had a rare form of cancer and died at 11 years old. Her parents started a foundation in her name to research this form of cancer.
I thought it would be great to write a song based on the little girl's poem, sell it on site's like Soundclick and then donate all of the proceeds to the foundation. Following is the poem that was written on the back of the card.

[b]Hand in Hand[/b] Take my hand and promise me to never let go As long as I feel you there I know I will be okay With your hand in mine I know I can defeat the toughest foe I will never again reach despair Finger tip to finger tip I feel that your daring power now also flows through me Thanks to you I know believe I can become whatever I want to be With you pushing me on I can accomplish anything Because of you I now see myself in a positive view I see myself conquering mountains and calming winds I see myself exploring the oceans as if I had fins I'm beginning to slip So make your grip a little tighter With your hand in mine I know I can be a fighter With your hand in mine my future always looks a little brighter
I'm looking for:
1- Electronic Drums
1- Keyboard (to fill in for violins and such)
I do have some rhythm ideas and will gladly share with you what I have so far.
Please let me know if you'd like to work with me on this one.
