Ed's words for me
Ed was working hard on my very last gift.... he struggled and struggled and couldn't find all the right words. The music he could always find - the lyrics were hard for him. So instead of finishing it, because he knew his time was very limited, he asked his band-mate, Pete G., to write a song.... Ed asked Pete for this very special gift and told him he wanted it to be a tear-jerker... Alas, Pete wrote "Tear Jerker" (yeah, he took it a bit literal) and folks, it IS one. I wish I could somehow post it here for your listening pleasure, but I am not that tech-savy .... yet.
The original song Ed was working on, I will never see ... but, that's how it goes in life.
So, my sweet EJD.... as the Tear Jerker clearly states:
"I'll be waiting for you with a beer in my hand, I'll have a smile on my face and my toes in the sand! You can bet your last dime, I'll be the first in line, on the day He calls you home!"
And I know you will be the first in line when I'm called my love.... miss you every minute of every day! Granted, I may not be going to the same place you are....... time will tell now, won't it.
Thank You Ed... AND THANK YOU Pete for helping him out when he needed it most. It is my greatest gift from you both.
Love - MK
