I made a promise 44 years ago not to share the lyrics below with anybody. I'm breaking that promise now so it does not become something I forget to do in my old age. In a way I broke that promise before because I put the words into song and did sing it from time to time for others, but I never showed the text to anybody. In those days I wrote a lot of folk tunes on guitar, and this was one. The words are about me and her feelings that my family was moving away...and I have ALWAYS felt very special that somebody loved me with all of her heart. Of course, we grew apart, but this song has always been warmth in my heart and over the past ten years has often pulled me out of the wreckage of my life and given me hope that someday...somewhere...somebody cares. (Thanks from the depths of my heart, my being, and my soul Miss Debbie G., Hastings, Nebraska) Feel free to share this and perhaps it will find its way back to her, and maybe she will forgive my breach of promise.
Do you think it is possible to love someone at the age of twelve? Think about it, I for one know the answer. Yes it is possible, it happened to me. I'm the luckiest person in the world. I have the chance to care about the only person I want.
He is warm, friendly, considerate, and funny, but most of all he is all mine. I'm happy with him, yet because of him, I'm sad. To lose someone you care about is a great loss. A loss that will happen to me. Not far in the future is that fateful day when I have to say good-bye to him.
I will miss him, oh, so very much, because I care about him and love him. Someday I hope to see him again. Yes, again. When I don't know. All I know is that I will miss him, and want him, so much. Yes, so very much.
