Stopped on Track / Andreas Dresen

The doctor told the truth. The days are numbered. Why me and why now? A man leaves behind his wife and children, his parents, his friends, his neighbors and yesterday’s lover – all the people in his life. Day by day, saying goodbye a little bit at a time. Words become rare now; silences longer. Outside the window, the year changes colors. Dying is the final item on our “to do” list. Not being alone while you are left behind alone – maybe that’s a good thing.
