Just hum any old Country bar room tune to these lyrics and see if there's magic. I've dedicated this song to my Aunt Aileen who recently lost her husband, my Uncle Bob. They were married for over 60 years.


A Sad Song For Someone

 

 

 

I woke up this morning, your pillow was cold

Then I remembered what I had been told

An angel had called you and you could not refuse

Now I’m left all alone with this bottle of booze

 

But thank you sweet Jesus for the memories

Sometimes things just don’t turn out so well

Now all I have left are the memories

Without them I’d be living in Hell

 

You came into my life like a hurricane

You filled up my rivers with love

Every day filled with passion and happiness

Sent down from heaven above

 

But thank you sweet Jesus for the memories

Sometimes things just don’t turn out so well

Now all I have left are the memories

Without them I’d be living in Hell

 

You were funny and silly and beautiful

No one else will ever compare

All the love you provided now seems so one sided

How I wish I had treated you fair.

 

But thank you sweet Jesus for the memories

Sometimes things just don’t turn out so well

Now all I have left are the memories

Without them I’d be living in Hell

 

 

 

I’ll never forget the look in your eyes

When they gave you the terrible news

All too soon you were headed for paradise

From then on you had nothing to lose

 

So we danced through the night in a sweet embrace

Till the sunrise told us to rest

And we made love like tomorrow would only bring sorrow

Darling I now know that you were the best

 

But thank you sweet Jesus for the memories

Sometimes things just don’t turn out so well

Now all I have left are the memories

Without them I’d be living in Hell

 

I can never forget about this fairy tale

And lightning can never strike twice

We’ll be dancing together in eternity

When the good lord has turned out the lights

 

But thank you sweet Jesus for the memories

Sometimes things just don’t turn out so well

Now all I have left are the memories

Without them I’d be living in Hell

Yup! I sure can relate to this. Thanks for sharing it.

Patrick, as you suggest there does seem to be a bit of similarity here. My poem is between 10 and 15 years old. I only posted it now because the 19th was my wife's birthday and I like to honor her each year at this time. I now have a special lady in my life who comes from similar circumstances. We each occasionally write to honor our departed. She is from Saline, Michigan which is not far from Jackson either. Thanks for suggesting I read this one. It's a keeper. Dick

How I can relate. It makes me even sadder than I am. I guess that's good about your verses. Thank you. Love and peace,

A sorrowful refrain, yet it speaks of gratitude and hope. This is a great song, I caught the melody as I was reading. Seek to publish, won't you?

This is a good reminder to live each day as if it were your last because some day that will be true. You could set this to music and make a million. It is quite touching. Nifty picture goes well with your theme. e

This is indeed a sad song...a song that I wish no one had to endure...for I once myself sung those very words in effect, but the sun still shines and hope is ever present even in this...well done in this capture.
