    Ode To The Missing But Not Forgotten

    The grandfather of a missing woman whom pig farmer Robert (Willy) Pickton has been accused of murdering hopes a powerful song penned by famed poet Susan Musgrave will raise money to help other troubled women.

    "It's a gift from Andrea to the missing women," an emotional Jack Cummer said about the song Missing, which Musgrave wrote in memory of his granddaughter Andrea Joesbury.

    The song is a collaboration of Musgrave's poignant lyrics, Galiano Island guitarist Brad Prevedoros' haunting music, and the captivating voice of singer Amber Smith.

    Proceeds from the sale of the CD ($18.50 out of the $20 price tag) will go to Haven Society, a Nanaimo-based non-profit organization that for 28 years has been helping women and children escape violence and sexual exploitation.

    Cummer said the song, and his fundraising effort, are not about what happened to Joesbury, but he hopes it will stop other girls and women from being lured into dangerous lifestyles.

    Joesbury is one of 26 sex-trade workers whom Pickton is accused of murdering. Another 40 women remain missing, after vanishing from Vancouver's drug-infested Downtown Eastside since 1978.

    'WILL THEY REMEMBER ME WHEN I'M GONE?'

    MISSING

    By Susan Musgrave

    Missing's a word that can't begin to describe

    the way I miss you more each day;

    You left to chase the wind on high

    and the rain rained down to stay.

    Will they remember me when I'm gone, you said,

    when I've kissed goodbye to pain;

    Or will their lives just carry on

    in the small hours of the rain.

    You may be lost in the eyes of the world,

    but how can I set you free;

    When there's a whole empty world in my aching heart,

    you're the missing part of me.

    CHORUS

    How far from home is "missing"?

    In our prayers you're close beside us every

    day;

    When you left to chase the wind so high,

    the rain moved in to stay.

    Will they remember me when I'm gone,

    you said,

    when I've kissed goodbye to pain;

    Or will their lives just carry on

    in the small hours of the rain.

    You may be an orphan in the eyes of the

    world,

    can we ever love anyone enough?

    You'll always have a home in our loving

    hearts,

    You're the missing part of us.

    CHORUS

    How far from home is "missing"?

    In our prayers you're close beside us every

    day;

    When you left to chase the wind so high,

    the rain moved in to stay.

    Will they remember me when I'm gone,

    you said, when I've kissed goodbye to pain;

    Or will their lives just carry on

    in the small hours of the rain.

    How can we believe in a merciful world

    that could never believe in you enough?

    Take what strength you need from our

    fearless hearts,

    You're the missing part of us.

    CHORUS

    Missing means you're gone, I can't find you;

    My dear one, I'll never hold you again.

    You left to chase the wind too high

    and the rain can't wash my tears away.

    Will they remember me when I'm gone,

    you said,

    when I've kissed goodbye to pain;

    Or will their lives just carry on

    in the small hours of the rain.

    You may have disappeared in the eyes of the

    world,

    but when I close my eyes I'll always see

    your name, they way you smile, inside my

    wishful heart,

    The missing part of me.
