And, and, and then you put your loving arms around me
Around me, around me, around me

You are gifted.
Emotions run strong with every listen.
My life is full of moments represented.
Thoughts swirl, memories whirl
Hearts race
Life feels misplaced.
What happens next is tears across my face.
Love is not lost in years we cannot replace.
Stronger is my bond to my human race.
The smiles
The sorrow
The laughter
The late night talks of whats next to come. Slow days turn into weeks, months become years, our constant fears have no signs of an outcome.
Moments pass
Time is still
Until
I found you

--- Thank you Fred ---

I had stopped listening to music and I stopped dancing. You… your music.. your voice… your light.. your message.. puts a “smile on my face”… a real smile.

Your music gives me life, Fred. And I just want to Thank you. So much. 🪩💖
