Just Breathe

The following post is dedicated to
Marie Louise Adams Henrie Fuertes 1976 ~ 2011
Christopher R. Thomas 1973 ~ 2011

Two young people gone long before their time.
Gone on different days, for different reasons.
Friends of my kids.


Yes, I understand that every life must end, uh-huh,

As we sit alone, I know someday we must go, uh-huh,

Oh I'm a lucky man, to count on both hands

the ones I love,

Some folks just have one,

yeah, others, they've got none, uh-huh

Stay with me, Let's just breathe.

Practiced are my sins,

never gonna let me win, uh-huh,

Under everything, just another human being, uh-huh,

Yeh, I don't wanna hurt, there's so much in this world

to make me bleed.

Stay with me,

You're all I see.

Did I say that I need you?

Did I say that I want you?

Oh, if I didn't I'm a fool you see. . .

No one knows this more than me.

As I come clean.

I wonder everyday

as I look upon your face, uh-huh,

Everything you gave

And nothing you would take, uh-huh,

Nothing you would take

Everything you gave...

Did I say that I need you?

Oh, did I say that I want you?

Oh, if I didn't I'm a fool you see,

No one knows this more than me.

As I come clean, ah-ah...

Nothing you would take,..

Everything you gave.

Love you till I die,..

Meet you on the other side.

This touching comment was left on YouTube after the above song:

"i'm 92 years of age and i try to keep up with the younger generation but when i found this song i cried because it reminds me of my wife who passed away 6 years ago at the age of 89 we had been together for 59 years this song just warms my heart. hope your happy in heaven Ann.... I love you so much.... "

A beautiful post. We recently said goodbye to a good friend of my children(and me!), who was only 16. I know we will meet her again one day "over the rainbow" but that doesn't stop the sorrow we are feeling now.
