Seven Kisses (Original Song) Cuatro GCEA

A Winter Song in memory of Mickey McGonegal 12/03/1958 – 08/05/2008.

Some people hear this as a “sad song”. It is not meant to be sad but I can’t tell you how to hear it.  It is more a song for when the sadness has receded and there is consolation in happy memories. No regrets.
