This has always been a favorite -it's like watching a sad movie when you need a good cry, but can't find the time to work it up on your own. This song is so sad and hits all the moments in life. Can't listen to it all the time, but when I do, it's a flood and often welcome

Music is emotion. My father passed away 3 weeks ago then this song came on the radio yesterday

Oh Marc, so very sorry for your loss. Sometimes songs just seep in and do their work. I hope it helped. There was a time when my husband had had a brain aneurysm and I was suddenly working two job - all day and then some hours at night, every night and weekends. On the way home late one night, Nat King Cole came on the radio and told me I had to "Smile" though your heart is breaking, Sue. I actually had to pull off the road for a moment - some songs just are meant for those moments.

I hope you are doing well, and thanks for your response.

Thank you Sue.

We're doing fine, concentrating on mum now. It's why I love music, it keeps so many wonderful memories alive. My Nana was a big Elvis fan and, when I was little, I'd do some Elvis dancing for her. This one still gets me 36 years after she passed.

Sorry to read about your loss.

My mum died last year during the peak of covid. My dad, brother and I weren't allowed to visit her in hospital and we had to close the family business twice because of her passing and then funeral. We had lockdown and I had lots of time with my little kids which helped, but it was also a time I really began to write and focus on, what started out as an idea many years ago, to a hobby, to something that has helped me in my recovery and determination to make mum proud of something no one knows I am doing.

If you ever want a PM chat with a stranger who is all too familiar with loss about anything, I am more than happy to offer you my ear and support.

This maybe a forum for writing, but I often have found this to be a forum of supporting your dreams. I am crap at writing, some of my few friends have said I write well, but total strangers here have really picked up my spirits.

Thank you so much for your kind words. We were actually allowed to go to the hospital to say our goodbyes (it was the "covid free" part of the hospital) and will be eternally grateful or that.

I do like that song btw

To Those I Love And Who Love Me

love-you.jpg


Now that I have departed from the earthly plane,
Release me and let me go.
You and I, we still have many things to see and do,
So do not tie yourself to me with regrets and tears.
I gave you my love and you will never guess
How much you brought to me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you have shown,
But now it’s time for each to travel on alone.

So, weep a while, if grieve you must.
Though not for me, only for yourself and
For the hole my passing has created in your life.
But then let your grief be comforted by trust
And the knowledge that
It’s only for a while that part we must.
Bless the memories you carry in your heart.
It knows that no love is ever lost,
That life is eternal and goes on and on,
Not just for you and me, but everybody.

You and I now are closer than we have ever been
And I’ll never be further from you than a thought.
So whenever you need me, call and I’ll be near.
Even though you can now neither see nor touch me,
Know that I have never gone from you.
And when you listen to your heart,
You’ll feel my love there soft and clear.

And then, one fine day,
When you are coming this way,
You’ll find me waiting to greet you
And with a smile
I shall welcome you home.

Lost in the Supermarket
by The Clash

I'm all lost in the supermarket
I can no longer shop happily
I came in here for that special offer
A guaranteed personality

I wasn't born so much as I fell out
Nobody seemed to notice me
We had a hedge back home in the suburbs
Over which I never could see

I heard the people who lived on the ceiling
Scream and fight most scarily
Hearing that noise was my first ever feeling
That's how it's been all around me

I'm all lost in the supermarket
I can no longer shop happily
I came in here for a special offer
A guaranteed personality

I'm all tuned in, I see all the programs
I save coupons from packets of tea
I've got my giant hit discotheque album
I empty a bottle, I feel a bit free

The kids in the halls and the pipes in the walls
Make me noises for company
Long distance callers make long distance calls
And the silence makes me lonely

I'm all lost in the supermarket
I can no longer shop happily
I came in here for the special offer
A guaranteed personality

It's not here
It disappear
I'm all lost in the supermarket
I can no longer shop happily
I came in here for the special offer
A guaranteed personality

I'm all lost in the supermarket
I can no longer shop happily
I came in here for that special offer
A guaranteed personality

I'm all lost in the supermarket
(I'm all lost) I can no longer shop happily
(I'm all lost) I came in here for the special offer
A guaranteed personality

I'm all lost in the supermarket
(I'm all lost) I can no longer shop happily
(I'm all lost) I came in here for a special offer
A guaranteed personality

I'm all lost in the supermarket
I can no longer shop happily
I came in here for a special offer
A guaranteed personality

I'm all lost
I'm all lost
I'm all lost
I'm all lost in the supermarket
I can no longer shop happily
I came in here for the special offer
A guaranteed personality

This morning, when making breakfast, I said 'Alexa, play Tom Petty'. This was the 1st song played and it's one of my favourites.

An immense talent, taken way too soon.
