    inspired by Robert Redford & Barbra Streisand, and Debbie Boone, and RL

    1973....
    and I wonder sometimes, if you’d watched
    the movie with me that time
    when we broke up and went our separate
    ways for the entire Christmas break

    would it have made you cry?

    it was the end of that sad movie
    I couldn't bear; didn’t want for us
    you really were the only one who
    truly cared, so I rushed back to you
    for "the way we were"

    1977...
    and I wonder sometimes, if I’d been
    mistreated the way you'd been
    during those horribly selfish "all-about-me"
    months, and heard that song
    ringing in my ears

    would I have understood why?

    it was the lyrics of that sad love song
    that you believed was who I am
    so when I came running back (again)
    tired and hopeful, your face told me
    for true that "you light up MY life"
