After surviving a near fatal brain injury David has had to learn how to live again. There is loss of memory and identity yet there is no loss without gain. Whilst lying in hospital a song played in his mind, then another and he realised he'd once written them. They were asking to be sung and they gave him the words for his One Last Poem.
