Kim about ‘Jessica’

This is the name of our beloved beyond all measure dog. An Airedale terrier, seven years old, and family member. I wrote this song in Stockholm in a single night. I could not sleep and suddenly I had the song in my head – and then on my iPhone. (1)

Jessica, Jessica, nothing is better
Than sitting with Jessica close by my side
It’s a love you can’t measure
And when we’re together
A walk in the park makes the day so worthwhile
Darling Jessica, Jessica
You make me smile

And when I come home
The first thing I see,
Your lovely face looking up at me
Beautiful and wise
I wish that I could see life through your eyes

Jessica, Jessica, nothing is better…

Darling Jessica, Jessica, you make me smile
