Still Yours

Hello My Love,

I’m planning a longer letter tonight to fill you in on the past 4 days I spent in town with the girls and your parents, but for now I’m sending you a song.  (and I know it may look like I’m still procrastinating doing my insurance credits, but I’m waiting for an email with a password to do the on-line courses and I had a couple minutes to spare . . . =)

It’s another Jason Mraz song I know I probably drove you crazy with – turning it up loud every time it came on, holding your hand or tapping your leg as I drove and sung along horribly.  But, it was a song that I know you liked too, as it spoke to our love in many ways.  Life is short.  Our love was fate.  We (all) need to get over vanities and see what is really important in life.  Live for the moment, don’t hesitate.  Love.

I was yours.  You were mine.  It still is so.

I chose this song to play during the photo slide show at your memorial.  Your mom really likes it too, so I downloaded the CD off iTunes for her and burned a copy for each of us.  There is an even more beautiful live version of the song.  We all teared up while listening . . .

Well you done done me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but you’re so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks, now I’m trying to get back

Before the cool done run out I’ll be giving it my bestest
And nothing’s going to stop me but divine intervention
I reckon it’s again my turn to win some or learn some

But I won’t hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I’m yours

Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and then you’re free
Look into your heart and you’ll find love love love love

Listen to the music of the moment people, dance and sing
We’re just one big family
And it’s our God-intended right to be loved loved loved loved loved

So I won’t hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I’m sure
There’s no need to complicate, our time is short
This is our fate, I’m yours

D-d-do do you, but do you, d-d-do
But do you want to come on
Scooch on over closer dear
I’ll whisper in your ear, oh yes I will

Love, love, love, love, love

I’ve been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and I laughed

I guess what I be saying is there ain’t no better reason
To rid yourself of vanities and just go with the seasons
It’s what we aim to do, our name is our virtue

But I won’t hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I’m yours

(I won’t hesitate)
Open up your mind and see like me
(No more, no more)
Open up your plans and man you’re free
Look into your heart and you’ll find that the sky is yours
(It cannot wait, I’m sure)

So please don’t, please don’t, please don’t
(There’s no need to complicate)
There’s no need to complicate
(Our time is short)
‘Cause our time is short
(This is our fate)
This is, this is, this is our fate
I’m yours

Always and forever,

~C~

P.S. I Love You
