Gather Up Her Tears


Gather All Her Tears – October 15, 2014. For Ioan Cascuescu (Tata)


Catalina’s father died on Thursday, October 9, 2014. It struck a heavy blow to my wife. She talked to her mom and dad ever day either through the phone or the computer. It will take time for her to recover, not to get over, as you don’t get over this.

I was downstairs playing my morning guitar when I heard her cries. I knew instantly what had happened. The song, which somehow I had started the day before demanded to be written. It’s hard to write a song when you are crying yourself. I finished it yesterday, recorded it today at Two Egrets studio. Mike did a great job.

This one is for Tata. I will and do miss him.


  1. I am so sorry to hear of Catalina’s father passing away, my sympathy is with your family

  2. Sad and extremely emotional. Steven, best I have ever heard your voice. The song has wings. Well done on the song and the performance.

  3. I am so sorry to hear of Catalina’s fathers passing. I can hear the sorrow in this song. Keeping you and yours in our thoughts and prayers. May God give Cata and you the strength to get through this, your time of sorrow.

    A beautiful tribute.

  4. Thinking of you in this difficult and painful time. Your love will help her through this, and know our love goes out to you both.

  5. Thank you for sharing this moving tribute to your Father-in-Law. My heart goes out to both of you.
