Goodbye My Friend, Carry On

"Baby if you can hear me
Turn down your radio
There's just one thing
I want you to know
When you've been near me
I've felt the love stirring in my soul..."

This song has been playing in my head for two weeks.
Courtesy of Jackson Browne.
It is time. To move on.
New song.

Yeah.

But daaaang.

"Baby if you need me
Like I know I need you
There's just one thing
I'll ask you to do
Take my hand and lead me
To the hole in your garden wall
And pull me through."


Yeah.

But you know what folks? That ain't happening. Not now. Not never.
That door. Has closed.
And the sound.
Resounds.
Down the halls of the past.
In to the future.

Goodbye my friend.
Carry on.

I will still rejoice in your successes.
But I will no longer wait.

Not for you.

Not anymore.

Goodbye my friend.
Carry on.

To family, friends and faithful readers, I am finally letting go of my Bobby McGee. And moving on. I have a profile on match.com and am meeting my first 'match' this Saturday. Don't cry for me. I am happy. I've found home. And whether there is a man in my life or not, I know that I am loved.

Raise your glass for a toast to what happens next: *clink*
And I promise. I'll be back with a happy post soon.

Olivia, I had you on my mind all day yesterday and today- seriously. I think of you often but the past two days it's been even extra. I felt the tremors in the Force!

Happy times ahead, my friend. Your heart is open and one of a kind- it has to happen for someone as wonderful as you are.

Cheering you on every step of the way.

love,
bru
