"I lost my sister on March 3, 2016. She passed away abruptly in Trinidad. I wrote this song for her and her two sons Emmanuel and Kyle. It contains a conversation with my father Roger McTair that I recorded on my phone in his apartment in downtown Toronto. As much as this song is about a lost life, it is about health, and migration, and the distance (physical and emotional) that immigration creates. Rest in peace Roxanne.
