Piano Man

When you look into my eyes
And you see the crazy gypsy in my soul
It always comes as a surprise
When I feel my withered roots begin to grow
Well I never had a place that I could call my very own
That's all right, my love, 'cause you're my home

When you touch my weary head
And you tell me everything will be all right
You say, "Use my body for your bed
And my love will keep you warm throughout the night"
Well I'll never be a stranger and I'll never be alone
Whenever we're together, that's my home

Home can be the Pennsylvania Turnpike
Indiana's early morning dew
High up in the hills of California
Home is just another word for you

Well I never had a place that I could call my very own
That's all right, my love, 'cause you're my home

If I travel all my life
And I never get to stop and settle down
Long as I have you by my side
There's a roof above and good walls all around
You're my castle, you're my cabin and my instant pleasure dome
I need you in my house 'cause you're my home.

You're my home.

You're my home.

Billy Joel went straight to my heart with this song. I would hear this song and immediately know this was about Jim and I. I would cry when I heard it or sang it, it just was so perfect. He was. He is my home. As long as I had him by my side.

I thought Jan 2nd would bring some change, but it has gotten worse. I am not feeling much like writing, or thinking or feeling this week. I can't even remember if I already posted the lyrics to this song. For some reason I think I may have. Oh well. It played today on the radio and I couldn't get it out of my head. I really don't want to be without him at my side. Really really don't.

HiBetsy,

You know, I think sometimes the best thing to do when you are feeling as you do, is to do absolutely nothing for a while. Numb and not thinking at all can be very relaxing, and it can help to restore the soul a bit. I have done this many times over the years and just consider it a "mind flush". Things just get too overwhelming when we can't do anything to change them. I don't want to see you have to be without Jim any more than I don't want to see Rachel without Hannah, Laura without Leonard. It is all too overwhelming and I hurt for all of you. I am also praying for all of you to find your way with the Lords help and that the days will become brighter and lighter again for you all and that your loved ones always live huge in your hearts, trading the pain for peace in His time.

Love you and ((HUGS))
