Music replays the past memories, awakens our forgotten worlds and make our minds travel.
– Michael Bassey Johnson,Author
Music often calms the body and mind. Music can connect people and help us heal. Whether it be the lyrics that bring back memories of our loved one or the melodies to soothe our grief, we can use music to navigate our grief and create a space to grieve especially when words fail. In music, we find a part of our heart that time and death cannot take away.

Examples of Music
“It's been a long day without you, my friend. And I'll tell you all about it when I see you again (I'll see you again)”
I lost my friend (Dave) 2 years ago. The Fast and Furious series was our favourite series to watch together. Whenever I listen to this soundtrack, I’m comforted by the lyrics and remember our good times chatting about the movie.
I still remember singing this alongside my friend (Timmy) as we drove back home from our first ever road trip to Thailand together. My favourite line from the song is “Remember that I told you, I'll find my way back home”.
“When you look into the mirror, does it make you miss her more?”
When my mom (Mary) passed away early this year, I remember stumbling upon this song and memories of her celebrating my birthday with me came flooding back.
