New Year's resolution

  1. tell people what they mean to me, before it is too late

    I wanted to write you some words you'd remember;
    words so alert they'd leap from the paper
    and crawl up your shoulder and lie by your ears
    and be there to comfort you down through the years.
    But it was cloudy that day and I was lazy
    and so I stayed in bed just thinking about it.

    I wanted to write you and tell you that maybe
    love songs from lovers are unnecessary.
    We are what we feel and writing it down
    seems foolish sometimes without vocal sound.
    But I spent the day drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes
    and looking in the mirror practicing my smile.

    I wanted to write you one last, long love song
    that said what I feel one final time.
    Not comparing your eyes and mouth to the stars
    but telling you only how like yourself you are.
    But by the time I thought of it, found a pen,
    put the pen to ink, the ink to paper,
    you were gone.

    And so, this song has no words.

"anyway... the thing is ... what I really mean ..."

from "Your Song" by Bernie Taupin (lyrics)

All joking aside, that's an excellent resolution, Ilza.

Y'all on eMule: You guys are the top, the tower of Pisa, etc.
