Not sure if anyone has heard of Clifford T. Ward.

He is a talented British singer-songwriter who unfortunately only achieved limited success in the 70's & 80's (with minor hits "Gaye" & "Scullery") before being diagnosed of contracting multiple scherosis. All his physical movements including speech gradually deteriorated over the following fifteen years and he eventually passed away in late 2001 at the age of 57.

I wrote this song in 2003 as my tribute to him and this version I'm sharing here is newly done last month (August). I took the liberty in recapitulating the intro of his song "The Way Of Love" in my own song here (from bar 52 to 60 , right after the bridge part). So just hope you like the arrangement.

Icon used for this track is a photo of Clifford taken in the mid-80's.

This is a really pretty flowing piece! It has such a nice feel to it! And the instrumentation sounds like gold, nicely flowing from one headphone to another! Thanks for sharing! :)
