Still In Love With You


I woke up this morning
Forced my eyes to meet the dawn
Dreams of you still lingering,
I guess my heart's not moving on.

So I,
Stumbled through what was a home
Made myself a bite to eat.
It's been,
Many days that you've been gone
And my life's been incomplete.

And I,
Spend my days a-wonderin' why
I'm still in love with you
Each night as I lay down to cry
I'm still in love,
Still in love,
With you.

As I,
Drove in our old pickup truck,
To face this day alone,
I passed that place I lost my luck;
Oh I wish that I'd have known.

That there'd,
Come a day I'd have to face
The pain of losing you.
I'd end up stuck in second place,
And have to start anew.

I should have changed a million things
I should have held you close.
I should have shown the love I have,
When you needed it the most.

‘Cause I,
Spend my days a-wonderin' why
I'm still in love with you
Wish I could go back in time,
‘Cause I'm still in love,
Oh I'm still In love,
With you.

Now just as a disclaimer: This is not about anything current, this isn't about anyone else. The inspiration for this came from a conversation with a close friend last night, so here it is. If it sounds like a bad country song, that's because that's what it is. I have the tune still stuck in my head, so give me a break! LOL!

Ok....now that I've stopped laughing.... this probably would be a hit in the C&W market! Full of guilt and pickup trucks... A little different than what we've come to expect from you...I love it!!! Stretch those artistic muscles!

Oh Betsy, tell me it ain't so!  Michael's coming to YOUR house?  I got it now...I'm gonna be closer to you two 'coons than I thought!  Bakersfield was a safe distance, but now I think I better cancel my trip!  hehehe  I'll be sure and stir up lots of dust as I pass through Modesto, ok?  BTW, I'm dropping devina off, per her request!  LOL  (She's bored!)

Um -- never mind, what I said before was rude ... sorry

--Me


 Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...


--William Shakespeare, from The Tempest

I'm so thrilled with the email you sent me, I can hardly stand it. You are so kind to thank me privately. I love this poem and can only imagine that your voice would lend itself to the singing of it most magnificently. Thank you.

Enjoyed this piece.
Actually, it's got promise with a
country tune flair.
You and Michael have a nice weekend.

Uh huh... I see how it works...
Last weekend there was a PIP party in Florida - this weekend there's one in California...

Well, I've got one brewing here in a couple of weeks myself... See if I care that none of you invited me... Nope - I'm not mad... Not even a little...  

BTW - Neato poem...

Wonderful song/poem, my friend.  As I was reading it, I couldn't help but those past loves that have shredded all I had to offer them.  Thanks for the mammo..um..memories.

Ok, I can see my attempt at humor has met with mixed reactions!  

Christopher - Thank you for clearing that up for everyone!

Gen - Go change your diaper! And I didn't know you were going to be in the area! If I would have, I'd have rented out the nearest bomb-shelter! LOL

Devina - Thanky-you berry much! Why I do believe you'se jumped right into the spirit of it!

Michael - Yeah, but I forgot the part about my mom getting out of jail, only to get run over by a train!

Mistikman - You can come hide in the bomb shelter with me and Mike... I promise, nothing but good ol' rock n' roll!

Michael - Hehehehe! -or- Haw-haw-haw!

Sharon - I like trying different things... keeps me (and everyone else) on their toes!

Gen - Devina's coming too? Geesh, sounds like Mike and I are in for a rough time of it! LOL

Michael - Tell me it aint so!!!

Becca - EXACTLY! LOL, but I also heard you go to hell for playing music backwards...LOL

Kess - I read what you wrote before, ahem. S'ok, we'll chat about it later...

Devina - COWARD!!!

Oscar - Thank you for another kind reply.

Roniece - Thank you!!! There are advantages to being far away... For example, you don't have to hide in the bomb shelter with me Mike and Mistikman.

Marge - Will do! And thank you, though I think I'd die laughing if this ever actually became a song!!!

Ruth - LOL, Actually, he's one of the few country singers I like, so we won't ruin is career with this! LOL, Thank you!!!

Nan - I SWEAR that I only knew of Mike coming down. Gen and Devina are news to me! If I'd have known it was going to turn into a party, I'd have invited everyone!

Ali - ROFL! I hear you! And someone put a tear in my beer too! LOL
