♪♫ "Oh, i could hide 'neath the wings of the bluebird as she sings...." ♫♪
Ah, those eyes! That smile! Images of a teen heartthrob that will always stay with me.
♪♫ "...And for once in my life I'm alone,
and I've got to let her know just in time before I go." ♫♪
That voice! That sweet grin! I can still remember the words to those iconic songs even in my sleep.
Gone too soon. All of them. I believe they all still had so much more to contribute to this world. But for some unknown reason, God chose to take them home. I have to satisfy myself with feeling blessed that I had them in my life as long as I did and that their legacy lives on in the lyrics, the recordings, the films, the tapes, the stories, the sports and news archives.
