Desperado By The Eagles

This song so totally describes my best friend, whom I loved more than anyone in life. He died in 2004 on my sons birthday, July 30th. I will always remember me and the kids were at his place having a great time just hanging out, eating hot dogs drinking coke. We swam, rode around his dirt track in his older Bronco. The same Bronco that had the fireworks go off in it the year before. We were all in the living room of his house watching TV and just enjoying each others company. He was sitting on the floor and I was laying on the couch. He sat against the couch where I was and I was able to rub his bald head and whisper in his ear that I loved him. It made him smile so big! We had to leave, but something inside me told me to stay. But I couldn't. I gave him a long lasting hug and a kiss, told him that I loved him and drove away. That was the last time I saw him alive for he died that very night. My world has never been the same since then. I think about him and get teary eyed and will always feel he is the one I was supposed to be with.

I'm sure he's resting in peace and hopefully the day will come that I will see him again.
