I used to love that song. Now it is so painful to listen to I didn't make it to the end.  I tell my grandchildren to try to love the one their with a little more each day. Tell them as often as you can how much they mean to you.
A losing hand.

I somehow missed this when you posted it. The answer to your question as far as I'm concerned is YES, wouldn't have to think about it.  There are so many songs that say how we feel. I never heard this one, it was nice.

      Take care of yourself.

  Thank you.
    David Gates' father died in 1963.  When he became famous with the group Bread in the early 70s, he wrote the song as a tribute to his father.
     My wife and I enjoyed singing karaoke in public venues.
     The last year of her life when the neurologist told me she was at stage 7,  I started singing this to her on stage. It was my way of begging TPTB to take any thing in return for her health being restored.

I've always loved this song. Had no idea it was about his Dad. Thanks Army Vet.

You're welcome.
I've found these songs about loss and grief to be very therapeutic in helping me understand and process my own feelings.
I've been posting them in hopes they're helping others on this forum.

I am so sorry for what you are going through. My dad passed away last month. I have only heard the Crystal Gayle version of that song, which is beautiful. I don't think I will be able to listen to it again for a long, long time.

Hello Morticia,

 

Please accept my sympathies over the loss of your father.  I hope you are getting whatever support you need.

 

I will check out Crystal Gayle's version. I didn't know she had sung this song, but I enjoyed her music back in the 70s.

Update: I just listened and it's a lovely version!

Thanks for posting, I believe music is one of the few things that have helped me. My wife use to listen to music on the back porch, especially as the terrible, ravenous disease took her. She loved music. I miss her terribly every moment of every day. I just drink on the back porch and talk to her. I miss her. There is lot of painful songs, but I feel her at least when one comes up. No one understands that this disease was terrible and I am left alone.
