Just A Song Before I Go

Just a song before I go,
To whom it may concern
Traveling twice the speed of sound
It’s easy to get burned

When the shows were over
We had to get back home,
And when we opened up the door
I had to be alone

She helped me with my suitcase,
She stands before my eyes
Driving me to the airport,
And to the friendly skies

Going through security
I held her for so long
She finally looked at me in love,
And she was gone

Just a song before I go,
A lesson to be learned
Traveling twice the speed of sound
It’s easy to get burned

Just A Song Before I Go – Crosby, Stills & Nash

I intended to wait till this weekend to change to the new blog, but something told me to end this part of my life tonight. For those of you that have been with me from the start, you have seen me bare my soul, commit to my mistakes, apologized the best I could for everything I have done. You supported me when my father died, comforted me as I stood alone and buried him. Shared funny stories about yourselves, and laughed at mine. You have all become the best friends I have ever had, even though we have never met in person.

So now I start the rest of my life, free from my past and all the hardships. I think I can finally let go of that part of me but still hold dear the lessons I have learned. I go now to my future with a renewed sense of joy and wonder, a feeling of accomplishment for having shared with many all the demons within that I feared to deal with alone. A mighty weight has been lifted from me and I think I may just be able to forgive myself now. I know one things for sure, I can no longer carry around the emotional baggage I have been struggling with for so long, and still lead a happy life.

And so I end this blog with one last song before I go, to whom it may concern, traveling twice the speed of sound, how many times I was burned. Now the show is over, I’m going to my new home, and when I open up the door, I’ll never be alone.

Your Friend, John

PS: Here’s the link to the new blog. I hope to see you all there.

  1. So have I become chopped chicken liver, Mr. “though we have never met in person” ? 😒
    See you in your new digs in the blogosphere.. 😊
    I can’t help but feel a tug at my heart for this blog to go dark but I’m looking forward to the new chapters you are opening and the great pictures you take.. 💛

  2. Well John,its been a joy to read of your adventures and struggles and watch as you learn and grow. I’m glad you are creating a new blog as you go forth in your new life and on to happier times and adventures. I also like the name of your new blog. At one time you may have felt that you were a “weird guy” but I hope that you no longer feel that way–I don’t think you are weird at all–you are very intelligent, sensitive, and kind-hearted–and I’m sure that all of us who have followed your blog feel the same way. Best wishes on this phase of your life and I look forward to your new stories!!
