Old Songs/New Meanings

50

 

I’ve gone back to listening to some of my old CDs while driving. Listening to Carole King I find memories stirred and songs that seem to have a whole new meaning now. Like “Now and Forever”.

Now and forever
you are a part of me
And the memory cuts like a knife

 

Now and forever
I’ll remember all the promises still unbroken

‘Til death do us part is one promise that is still unbroken. We kept that promise.

And think about all the words between us
That never needed to be spoken

I’ve thought about those last days and how we often sat not saying a word. Sometimes I’ve longed for memories of some long, final conversation. But then I realize there was no need. Talking was what drew us together – we could sit and talk for hours when we were dating. Years later we would sometimes find ourselves lying in bed in the wee hours of the morning having long serious discussions. Sometimes he would just talk and I’d drift off to sleep. And he never minded that I did.

We are the lucky ones
Some people never get to do
All we got to do

  1. Dear friend,
    You and Chuck were so blessed to have a rare relationship in that you “liked” each other. Doug used to wonder why I had long conversations with my girlfriend
    s and I told him we had a lot to talk about. Now we enjoy good times of sitting together and over our morning coffee we rediscover things about past times that just never came up in previous conversations.
    I know you will continue to find sweet memories of your life of commitment to one another.
    Love to you,

    Judy
