Wait for Me

This is going to be a short post, because I don’t think I have the words to share all of the feelings I’ve had this week—happy, sad, hopeless, grateful, melancholy, inspired, uninspired, stressed, misplaced, irritated, frustrated, so thankful….I could go on and on.  And, as much as I always love riding roller coasters, I would really like to get off of this one. I’m exhausted!!!  Truly.

Yesterday it was one month since my mom died.  Tomorrow it’s been 2 months since my husband has been gone.  I wish I could say I feel better; I really really wish it was so, but I don’t. I’m getting used to it, and as I know that adjustment is part of the grieving process, I guess that’s good.

Anyway, I mainly wanted to share this song that I love so much!  So, here it is–From me and my Daddy sent out to Bobby and my mom.  It popped up on the radio today, and although I listen to it a lot since it’s one of my favorites, for some reason when a song “surprises” you, it aways seems to have a stronger message. ❤️4438F953-C019-401E-89AE-688C1C9382E8.jpeg

If I Should I Fall Behind  

We said we’d walk together baby come what may
That come the twilight should we lose our way
If as we’re walking a hand should slip free
I’ll wait for you
And should I fall behind
Wait for me
We swore we’d travel darlin’ side by side
We’d help each other stay in stride
But each lover’s steps fall so differently
But I’ll wait for you
And if I should fall behind
Wait for me
Now everyone dreams of love lasting and true
Oh, but you and I know what this world can do
So let’s make our steps clear that the other may see
I’ll wait for you
And if I should fall behind
Wait for me
Now there’s a beautiful river in the valley ahead
There ‘neath the oak’s bough soon we will be wed
Should we lose each other in the shadow of the evening trees
I’ll wait for you
Should I fall behind
Wait for me
Darlin’ I’ll wait for you
Should I fall behind
Wait for me
Yeah, I’ll wait for you
Should I fall behind
Wait for me
I’ll wait for you
Should I fall behind
Wait for me
