Sometimes we go through life alone. We have those moments whereby we reflect alone. Sometimes we need someone to carry us and comfort us, even if there is no one.
This song means a lot to me because it carried me through my childhood through today. It is the kind of song that resides deep inside for some reason, and emerges sometimes when I least expect but usually for a reason to comfort.
The spirit of it never ends.
This solo rendition by Mr. Grant Perez truly captures what resonates inside me to this day. It is incredibly timeless and I would imagine it is as well for all of us who crossed that river as we reflected on the current of life, or are crossing it today.

“Moon river, wider than a mile
I’m crossing you in style some day
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you’re goin’, I’m goin’ your way
Two drifters, off to see the world
There’s such a lot of world to see
We’re after the same rainbow’s end, waitin’ ’round the bend
My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me.”
