On my most recent drive home from visiting Marty, I tried to take my mind off Marty’s lack of response to my presence at her bedside; she was still too doped up to do anything other than give me a brief smile. So as I put miles between us, I listen to a professional development CD, which got me only half way home.

I'm Still Yours Faithfully

On my most recent drive home from visiting Marty, I tried to take my mind off Marty’s lack of response to my presence at her bedside; she was still too doped up to do anything other than give me a brief smile. So as I put miles between us, I listen to a professional development CD, which got me only half way home.

Then I began “channel surfing” from one radio station to another, when suddenly I heard “Faithfully”, a song by the 80’s rock band Journey (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcGJdI2EzW8). As I rounded a bend in the back-county road I had taken, a double rainbow came into view. With the double rainbow spread across the breath of my windshield, the lyrics seemed to take on color and to resonate with a deeper meaning  “…Oh girl you stand by me, I’m forever yours – FaithFully! … Wondering where I am lost without you. And being apart ain’t easy on this love affair … Oh girl you stand by me, I’m forever yours – Faithfully! … I’m Still Yours. I’m forever yours, ever yours – Faithfully!”

Another song by Journey that has meaning for me: "After All These Years".

A faded wedding photograph

You and me in our first dance

The lives of those

We lost in once sweet embrace

Since those days our world has changed

Our love remains the same

God knows we've had our share of saving grace

 

And I'm proud of all the blessings

You have given me

The mountains we have climbed to get this far

You learn to take the laughter with the tears

After all these years

 

You make it feel brand new

After the fires that we walked thru

Against the odds we never lost our faith

 

In our hearts we've made our home

Where our children all have grown

Precious moments time cannot erase

 

* * *

 

After all these years

You stood by me

The days and nights that I was gone

After all these years

You sacrificed, believed in me

And you stood strong

'Cause with our love there's nothing left to fear

After all these years
