It's Taken 12 Years To Write This...I shall never forget the 4th of July the summer I was going to be a junior in high school. I was at our small town 4th of July celebration and there you were. You were next to your van, dressed in white jeans and you were one of the best looking guys I’ve ever seen, strong, muscular, tanned, brown hair and brown eyes. I was shy, but, for some reason caught your eye. We dated the rest of the summer, you flew a spray plane. I shall never forget while my sister and I tanned out in my parents yard you flying overhead and swooping down in your plane.. driving my parents crazy =) As summer ended you needed to fly south.
A few years later, my sister married one of your friends. Oh, all the weekends we spent at the lake, water skiing all day, then renting a pontoon to grill towards evening and then of course dancing whether it was on the slab by the lake or in the lodge or the parking lot after. I still have the picture of you dancing on the pool table. Yes, we did have fun every weekend that summer didn’t we?
I remember about 3 years later how you called me when I lived about 250 miles away and told me how of all the women you ever dated you had never had as much fun as you had with me and basically told me you wanted to marry me. I don’t know why I couldn’t… I wish I had the answer... I enjoyed the motorcycle rides we went on that summer together.
Finally I shall never forget the last party I went to at your house you played and dedicated this song to me and described this is how you felt when you heard I had gotten married and that you still loved me
I searched for your obituary today.. it's been 12 1/2 years. I just wish we could have talked before you committed suicide. I am sorry for not contacting you.. after my divorce I just had too much respect for your marriage. I never dreamed we would never talk again, dance. I miss your smile, your laugh, those big strong arms. I seriously don't think a summer will ever go by that I don't think of you and hey you set the bar way too high for any other man in my life.
Now I dedicate this same song to you... Baby, you will always have a place in my heart.. I wish things could have turned out differently.. I will always love and miss you and yes, life is a...
The world was on fire
No one could save me but you.
Strange what desire will make foolish people do
I never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you
And I never dreamed that I'd lose somebody like you......
