We drove down that old country road
We could see for miles and miles
We never saw another soul
It was the best times of our lives
And looking back it’s plain to see
Those little trips meant so much more
Than just a simple country drive
With a daddy and his boy
We’d spend the whole day fishin’
At an old abandoned shack
Where we’d dig worms and hook em up
And toss the small fish back
The tears well up within my eyes
Remembering those days
I pray my boy has memories of me
When like my daddy I’ve slipped away
There are so many things
That we just do not know
What tomorrow will bring
How today will go
It is comforting to see
That you have each other
I truly want to believe
That we have a destiny
That you were meant to find each other
That things are the way they were meant to be
All I know for sure
Is that I see love in both of your eyes
I wish you nothing but happiness and love

To Loose The Mooring I just wanted to see what would happen, to untie the knot and slip the hawser, just to loose the mooring and see where the tide would take us, to cast off from these predictable days, life, sometimes it's in the letting go. ©Paul Vincent Cannon
Pausing is a good thing. Everything has to stop at some time in order to keep going. To stop, to rest, or to pause means to do nothing. It means no thinking! No moving! No decisions! What a blessing it is to have the ability to stop and gain strength before moving forward.

“Sometimes when I dream,
I don’t want to wake up.
Because there, I’m with you.”
Sometimes when I dream, I don’t want to wake up. It’s like I become someone else. It’s like I’m unchained at last, experiencing life from new eyes. Every sense is heightened. I see a kaleidoscope of color. I feel every sound. Hear every touch. But my favorite is the taste. The taste of you. The scent of your aftershave upon my lips as I say your name. It takes my breath away. And when I awake, I grieve that loss of you. At least I can tell myself that if I don’t have you, I still have me. That counts for something, right?
