The Tracks Go On Forever





















































I never sat down and decided to become a story.

I just wanted to tell one.

I never wanted to be thought of as special.

Just human.

I never set out to help people or make them feel better.

I just needed you because I felt alone.

I never wanted any credit for the way you feel.

I just want you to know.

I just need you because I can never go back to the days of not knowing you. I just love you because I do. I just want you to know - I hope the tracks that go on forever include the two of us, together.

This forced delurking. Sadly I do not have words to express what I felt. Just that there really are angels on earth. No matter how much we want to call them 'humbugs'.

Nice, nice, most enjoyed...

You can go on the track forever, it will still not help her guitar playing. She never could play.

Sometimes I listen to your song just to hear your voice.

What do you dream? If you could have anything, what would you want? Would your track diverge with mine? If you could sit down to the blank page, and write down the words to the story the way you wish it would unfold, what would you write? I want to hear it, I want to see it. Tell me how you would write me into your story, if at all. Create that wish. If I could see it, if I could read it, I would do everything within my power to ferry your wish to God’s ears.

We have already merged into the same track. There is no going back. We both know this.

What would I write? What do I dream? How would my story unfold?

My answer is: You, only with you.

You would come to me. You would close your eyes and listen to my voice. And I would close mine and listen to yours. You would allow us a chance to be...to finally be.

You have me. I am yours, only yours. This heart, its yours.

The rest is resolving itself.

And...ditto (just for good measure) :)

What makes credit deserved? You, dearest... You've started something that heals. I can't pinpoint it for you. Maybe its how I aspire to write even a quarter as well as you. Maybe its the beauty and eloquence of your words. Maybe its how I see pain and hope laced into each letter on my screen. Thank you.

I loved you before I knew you and now I've found you. The tracks were always there I was just walking beside them instead of riding on them.

because you give me a sense of peace. of contentment. of joy.

i just recently found this. recently found you. who ever you are, where ever you are...it's true that we're not alone. someone somewhere feels the same, or goes though the same, if not similar things. it's strange how your words feel like my own (not to say i'm taking them or anything) just that they feel so mine, they say and describe the things i feel with the words i can never find. so many people thank you, not that i don't. but i'm glad you are able to do what i can't. speak with words that get to people. that got to me.
