“I (really) don’t know where to start…”

I wrote this for a special friend and relative; someone I grew up and shared some wonderful life-moments with as a young kid; someone that I only recently properly reconnected with after more than 20 years!

‘Time’ simply slipped by, weeks became months, months became years – years became decades!…

I’ve always looked back on our time together with joy, affection and fondness, and I couldn’t really understand why, or how, we’d drifted apart?… but we did…

So, I made the simple decision to reconnect – and we’re both so glad that I did!

How about you? – Is there someone ‘out there’ who you want/need to reconnect with- perhaps?

…………………………………..


“I (really) don’t know where to start…”

I don’t really know where to start…

– and ‘certainly don’t know what to say…

So many years have come and gone – ‘moments just slipped away…

-(The) memories survive untroubled, full of beauty, love and care –

‘Playful-joy and tender-depth – contentment in the air

The memories and mystery play out their own duet- In tune and precious harmony, that I’ll never forget,

The melody; p’raps more obscure – meanders through the rhyme-

Fading in and out, and (even) almost lost…in time…

-But she always reappears- smiling!… on ‘horizons-distant-face’ –

-Then softly floats through chords and notes into my heart –

‘her resting place…

-It’s like we had some hidden-code – that only we both knew…

-things around might fracture – but our friendship simply grew…

– Effortless and innocent -affectionate and fun-

‘Natural understanding -a precious journey had begun;

Summer holidays abound, ‘creativity’ took flight-

Writing songs and poems – ‘singing late into the night…

-Then the shadows fall – the season’s gone… (and) I quietly reminisce…

Through the shifting haze of those ‘care-free-days’… I see it’s ‘you’…I miss-

The tune- never stopped playing…

– The melody… ’more clear…

– (it’s) just swamped in ‘life’s percussion’ – so it’s harder now to hear…

I began by saying that… “I really don’t know where to start…”

I’ll end with this: – “You have a special place within my heart…”(‘Always…’).
