Originally written as a marimba solo, Blake Tyson created a version for percussion ensemble in 2013. It was commissioned by Dr. John W. Parks, IV in memory of Brandon Wood.

The work is a musical memorial and is described by the composer as follows: "Our time here is limited. I've been okay with my mortality for a long time, but I find it difficult to be okay with everyone else's. I’ve come to deal with it by understanding that people live on in the lives they touched while they were here. It's the idea that my grandparents, parents, teachers, and friends are always with me because I wouldn't be who I am without them. If all goes well, they will be here in the lives I’ve touched, even after I'm gone. That's what the piece is about, for me."
