For Pat


Pat and I have been friends since college and life partners since 1990. In this room you’ll find songs and stories that shine a light our life together. 

It took a long time for me to realize and give voice to a lifelong challenge I’ve had which is believing I am worthy of loving and being loved. It took someone special to be there through it all. Pat’s that person with me for the long journey and there to greet me when I believe I’m finally home.

Songs with Stories

  • A Loving Man Because of You

    The hardest thing I've ever done is learn to love myself. The only thing that came close to it was truly letting someone know and love me. Even the broken places. Especially the broken places.

  • This My Wish For You

    This is one of the songs I wrote for Pat for our anniversary. For me there are only a few things we need when our basic human needs have been met. This song is both a wish and a thank you.

  • Find to Love in Me

    The hardest thing I've ever done is to learn to love myself, to have faith in who I was and what I was doing. Pat has been an amazing companion on what at times felt like an endless journey. There through all the doubts and all the fears.

  • There You Were

    For so long I believed I was somehow broken and therefore somehow unloveable for who I truly was. My life's regret is the hurt I caused somehow "proving" to those I loved - who loved me - that I was not lovable.
