I was thinking of you, Susie, just now,
Sunday night darkness settling, the rain
subsiding, some guy on the stereo singing
"Had I never known her, God only knows
where I'd be..." and I was thinking of
those four youngsters or yours in Oregon
and next Friday and Jim and that white
mobile home near the barn and the horses
and raking out the stalls and Timbra
and the little one and that coffee you
made for me and the night we had Moondanse
play a live concert in the living room
and just how good it is that you've found
a companion, a mate, a good man to be with,
and that you're looking ahead to tomorrow
and not back to yesterday, and "you only
live once in a while...live for today,
you're alive..." and why are there
these tears in my eyes...

Love to you, Susie.
