The death of a loved one is a real mourning, but also an opportunity to meet. When his father dies, Mathieu feels incomprehension and anger towards the one who decided to die and abandon him. Although he is overcome by negative thoughts, he does not want the last words addressed to his father to be filled with bitterness. He then meets a little boy: himself, at the age of eight, who still sees his father as an immortal hero. Through the eyes of the child he was, Mathieu rediscovers the undying love of a son for his father. Through this song, Mathieu finally decides to act as a messenger between this child and his hero. Mourning is the path we take, alone and with the other versions of ourselves that lived alongside the deceased, to accept living without the person who has left us.
