The Song Continues

Dee looked at Eddie with a whistful smile. Music soared to the heavens and even though she did not understand the words, they moved her. They spoke to her heart in ways she did not understand. Music always had some effect on her. It was one of the ways she had always coped with life. It could throw anything at her and as long as she had music to listen to and a way to write our her thoughts she knew she would be ok.

Eddie wondered what was goin on in her head. She seemed blisfully happy, contented. He listened to her humm along to the tune. And he wondered if she understood those lyrics, really got the depth and power of them?

When the song ended he took her hands in his. Yes it was a bold move, but somehow it felt right. Looking at her with a steady gaze he asked, do you know what he just said? Shaking her head no she looked away from him, feeling foolish. With one soft movement he lifted her chin and began,

When i am alone, i dream of the horizion and words fail me.
there is no light in a room where there is no sun
and there is no sun if you are not here with me, with me
from every window unfurls my heart, the heart you have won
into me you have poured the light
the light the found by the side of the road.

time to say goodbye
places that i have never seen or experienced with you, now i shall
I'll sail with you on ships across the sea
seas that exist no more
time to say goodbye

when you are far away i dream of the horizon and words fail me
and of course i know you are with me, with me
you, my moon, you are with me
my sun, you are here with me, with me

time to say goodbye
places that i have never sen or experienced with you now i shall
 I'll sail with you on ships across the sea
seas that exist no more
time to say goodbye

I'll revive them with you
I'll go with you on ships across the sea
seas that exist no more
I'll revive them with you
I'll go with you
YOU AND ME.

Dee's eyes glassed up with tears. It was the most beautiful thing she had ever heard. And those words from his lips pierced her heart. In that moment, in those lyrics she had found the fulness of love.

But she wondered, could it be possible for life, real life to match that?
Only time would tell.
