Today I thought its about time to write another Blog entry, it’s been way too long, since my last entry, and would like to be more consistent with sharing about my songwriting.  Today I want to share the newest song I wrote titled “Daddy I’m Right Here.” This is a song that was written to hopefully open eyes of busy parents who don’t take the time with their children and see how everyday life affects them emotionally.

The song is about a young girl, who waits by the window for her father to get home from work, the father walks in and has so much on his mind from the day, he doesn’t even see her. This goes on year after year, and the girl grows up thinking it was all her fault.  She spent many of nights wondering was it her, did she do something wrong?  But in reality it wasn’t, it was just a busy father who had too much on his mind to even notice, his daughter was hurting inside.

She grows up, and looks back on life, daddy doesn’t seem to realize that she never got to be daddy’s little girl, but mama’s sunshine instead.  The emptiness she feels inside, because she feels she never really got to know her father.   Now looking back was it really her fault?  But now with children of her own she must go on, and make for the best for her little girls, because she never wants them to feel the way she did growing up.

My hope is to open eyes of many mothers and fathers out in the world to see that they need to take time with their children, even if only for a moment when they walk in the door can make a world of difference, still sitting down as a family eating dinner and showing them your undivided attention, and asking how their day went.  Truly showing that you care, because you don’t want your children feeling like this little girl, growing up thinking it’s all their fault.

So in closing I hope you’ll take the time to listen to “Daddy I’m Right Here” with vocals by Sandi Kight. I hope if you enjoy the song you will pass it along for others to hear, because I feel if it can open the eyes of just one mother or father, this song will have made a difference.  Thank you…

Much Love, Sheri Lynn

P.S. Here is the song “Daddy I’m Right Here”

This song was written in August 2014 when my father became very ill.  He was someone that did not have faith in doctors, so stayed away from them, and I must say it is probably what helped him to live longer in the long run.

With not knowing what was going on with my father’s health and knowing whatever was going on really was serious, I was sitting and wondering one day, how will I get through this when he goes?    How will he say good-bye?  My sister and I spent time daily checking on him, and making sure he had his meals and was eating, but dad’s breathing was labored and he was weak.  I would ask dad if I could take him to the doctor being it was obvious that something very serious was wrong with his health, but he would just say, “Not yet, there’s nothing they can do.”

One August morning I woke up and these song lyrics were coming to me, so I got up and wrote them down.  I read them over and over again, and thought I need to do something with this, I need to get this recorded, so that if something should happen to dad, I would have something to play at any service we may have for him.  Even though I knew my father loved me by his actions, I never heard him say the words.    I was looking through an American Songwriter magazine and it fell next to me and there was this ad from Aerugo Productions, so I quickly emailed and asked how quickly he could get this song recorded and back to me, that my father was very ill and I needed it  ASAP.  William the owner of Aerugo Productions wrote me back and said, he would talk to his other clients to see if they would let me go ahead of them to get this song finished in time.  The song was recorded and emailed back to me in 21 days.

Dad remained very sick for a couple of months, but by the Grace of God, dad was granted a little more time.  Not saying he didn’t have several bouts of whatever was going on with his health, he did.  When writing the song “How will He Tell Her” I always knew in dad’s eyes no matter how old I got, I would always be his little girl.  While writing the song, the tears began to fall.  Some how I knew the day would come and there would be no more tomorrows for dad.  Then on February 23, 2016 my father got so weak and sick, we could no longer abide by his pleas to not seek help.  I stood next to him pleading and asking him to let us take him to the hospital, and he just said, “No, not yet.”  I explained to him that we could get in trouble for elder abuse if he didn’t go, he still asked, “Wait a  little longer.”  After several family members talked with dad, he knew he was out numbered and finally said he would go.  We got him into the car and when we arrived at the hospital, it was the beginning, of the very near end.

Dad was transferred to the City to where there were specialist  to care for him.  He had surgeries, test after test, infections, breathing treatments, blood transfusions, and all that was keeping him alive was a TPN drip in his IV, but through all this he laid there in that hospital bed, able to talk, to smile and not once did he talk about dying,  he tried and fought so hard through it all, to keep on going.

Finally after 5 weeks in the hospital,  dad was transferred to the Hospice Home, where he spent his final 4 days.  So how did “We” say good-bye?  Our last words went like this.  I arrived to see dad on Thursday morning, when I walked in his room I said, “Hi dad.”  Dad opened his eyes and smiled and reached his hand out to me, so I held his hand.   He then said, “Your hand is cold.” And I said, “Your hand is so warm”.  As his hand was so warm to the touch.  Then l said, “You know what they say dad, cold hands warm heart.”  Dad opened his eyes one last time and smiled and said, “That’s right.”  Those were our final words, he died 2 days later on April 2, 2016……

We never know when our last words will be spoken to those we love, or how we will say good-bye, but it’s what we hold in our hearts and the memories we make, that truly matters…

With Love,  Sheri Lynn

Hello Everyone,  first off Happy New Year to everyone! Here’s to a Healthy Happy 2017 to all!  I decided to give you an inside look at what inspired me to write a song, and how the song came about.  My plan is to do this each month on a different song, so today  I have chosen the song “Songs of Yesterday.”

“Songs of Yesterday” was the second song that I wrote when I started this journey back in 2014.  To date this song remains the all time favorite among the many fans of my music.  The thoughts behind this song are, looking back to spending time with family, sharing the love of music together.  It’s not that I lived what the lyrics are in this song, but while writing this song I was able to visualize it, so the words came freely to tell the story.

I have always been inspired by the songs recorded by George Strait, George Jones as well as many other Traditional Country Legends.  So decided to include George Strait being he’s always been my all time favorite country singing artist.

I entered Songs of Yesterday into “The Great American Songwriting Competition” in Portland, OR and became a finalist in the 2015 competition.  The judges encouraged me to continue on with my songwriting, as they felt I had a gift for songwriting.  So these few words of encouragement have kept this journey going.

I truly feel that as long as this little voice inside my head keeps telling me, “Don’t stop, you’ve got more lives to touch and more love to share.” I will continue on with this chapter of my life, and must say it has been one awesome ride!  From all the wonderful people I have met along the way!

I hope that you will continue on supporting my music, and I will be adding more songs this year so hope that you will continue on checking in from time to time, please join me on Twitter at @sheri_lynn95252 for the latest updates or here on my web page.

Thank you again for all your support and love you’ve shown it truly is appreciated.

With Love, Sheri Lynn

For those of you who haven’t heard yet I have released a new song recently titled “Kisses in the Wind” this song was written with a lot of emotion and passion to keep a loved ones memory alive after they’re  gone,  We always want to find that one thing that can help us to bring back a memory, something special and something that holds us close no matter where we are or how long this loved one has been gone.    I felt something as simple as the soft breeze that touches against your face is something that’s simple and we all experience.  To stop and reflect on life and loss it’s never easy, but it’s something that we all go through.

So the next time you’re missing that someone special and you reflect look to the sky and may you feelKisses in the Wind.”  May it bring comfort to you knowing that even though you can’t see them, there spirit does live on.

Please take the time to listen to “Kisses in the Wind” I would love to know what you think of my latest song, it would be very much appreciated, you can find it here on my website at sheri-lynn.net or http://www.reverbnation.com/sherilynn  http://nlm.co/sherilynnsongwriter

Till next time sending, Love and Happiness Always~ Sheri Lynn

This morning I received an email from Numberonemusic.com stating that my Tribute song “Times Like These” has climbed to the #1 spot on the Traditional Country Charts after only airing for 3 weeks!  This song was written right after my father died on April 2, 2016.  It was written in order to work through the pain I have felt since his passing.  We all go  through loss in a different way, and at our own pace, this is one way for me to work through the pain and still be able to reach out to my father in a way that not many people can, and that being through my music.  My father was proud of my songwriting efforts and I do feel he is with me every step of the way, his memory, his spirit and his love will carry me through.  I would like to Thank all who have taken the time to listen to my song “Times Like These” and for those who haven’t had the chance I hope you will take the time to listen, let me know what you think.  You can listen here at my website at  sheri-lynn.net or go to

http://nlm.co/sherilynnsongwriter and take a listen there!

Thank you again to all who have made this possible.

Sending Love,  Sheri Lynn

I am sure one time or another you have wondered about this, who would show up at your memorial service when you die, who really truly cares enough to take the time to speak on your behalf?  How many would sit back in silence because they are too embarrassed to say anything in front of people.  I truly understand because I have been there.  So many memories that you’d love to share but not comfortable speaking in front of people.  But as you grow older, you learn that everyone is there for the same reason, to pay their last respects, to show love and support for the family, but most of all to show Love to the one who was chosen,  to spread their wings and fly. I hope you will listen to my song “Another Place in Time” vocals by Sandi Kight.  May you always carry much Love in your Hearts, and hold on to the Memories, because after all when we go we can only take Memories with us, and that is all that Truly Matters on what we Leave Behind…..Sheri Lynn
