Small Town, Somewhere
The holiday seasons coming up. I remembered what
you said you wanted...New tires for your truck. I'll keep that in mind. My birthdays next week. Remember, you said you'd celebrate with me? That was suppose to be half of the fun. Too bad you're too far away now. But I'll keep you in my heart. My thoughts are with you often now. I don't know how, but I wish we could get together for new year. It would be fun, don't you think? Maybe we'll figure something out. Yesterday marked the nine months to the day since you left. I still wish you hadn't moved away. Jewels' grown alot. She's really happy and doing well since the car incident. Oh, you weren't around for that, were you? She got hit by a car when I went to Chicago. For awhile, I thought she was going to have to be put into an endless sleep...but she pulled through. I could've really used your hand to hold during that time. It hurt to almost loose my "baby". I got a new truck. Did I tell you that already? The taurus is sold. It broke down again. This last time was permanately. Too bad, huh...We had a lot of good times in it. There's a lot of stuff going wrong now.. But I don't want to bore you too much. Did you know I moved out of the trailor? That's one of the better things in life.. Don't ask where I'm at now. I'll find someplace better soon. Your brother misses you. He won't admit it, but you can tell. He really looked up to you, you know? Hmmm... I'm running out of things to tell you. That's odd, since when we're together we could talk for hours. I'll let you go now and I'm sure I'll write more later. Or maybe even call if I can figure out your number. Take care of yourself, okay?
P.S. I'm sorry I haven't made it there yet. I'm still trying to get up enough courage. Before next year I'll visit and bring you flowers. Does that sound all right? My only problem now is that I don't know where they put your gravesite.
With a little piece of tomorrow,
You'll have to kiss yesterday goodbye.
Because today won't last forever,
And the past will only make you cry.
