My parents were, plain and simple, madly in love. For most of my life I thought they were pretty goofy. Then I met the love of my life…..and I finally understood.
It was so incredibly sad when “Your Dad still takes my breath away after all these years” became “I feel like I cannot breathe now that he’s gone.”
“When I was just a girl he swept me off my feet” became ” I can barely stand up now.”
“I don’t know how I could ever live without him” became “How will I ever live without him?”
“We used to dance at the Finnish Farmers Club when we were young” became “What I wouldn’t give to be in his arms one more time.”
This morning it is not “good morning mum”, its Happy Valentine’s Day.
I know you are dancing in heaven. I am here and I understand now.
I love, love, love this song.
