Sunday Songs

Today I’m feeling a bit melancholy. My son and his wife celebrate a year of marriage today, which means it’s been a year since I’ve seen his wife, my daughter, my other two sons, mom, or sister. John and I did travel to Shreveport, LA last January to see Wesley coaching with his former team, the Colorado College Tigers, when they made it to the SCAC D1 Championship Men’s Basketball game. 

Still, it’s too long for this mother’s heart.

This song was one I enjoyed as a girl, and still love today. When we were growing up we moved a lot. I learned to miss people at a young age. One could say I’m good at it, but I don’t think so.

For my loves, I miss you. Always.

So Far Away by Carole King

So Far Away, Carole King, 1971 (James Taylor accompanying on acoustic)


So far away

Doesn’t anybody stay in one place anymore

It would be so fine to see your face at my door

Doesn’t help to know you’re just time away


Long ago I reached for you and there you stood

Holding you again could only do me good

Oh, how I wish I could

But you’re so far away


One more song about moving along the highway

Can’t say much of anything that’s new

If I could only work this life out my way

I’d rather spend it being close to you


But you’re so far away

Doesn’t anybody stay in one place anymore

It would be so fine to see your face at my door

Doesn’t help to know you’re so far away


Traveling around sure gets me down and lonely

Nothing else to do but close my mind

I sure hope the road don’t come to own me

There’s so many dreams I’ve yet to find


But you’re so far away

Doesn’t anybody stay in one place anymore

It would be so fine to see your face at my door

Doesn’t help to know you’re so far away
