We could all take a lesson from the words to this song. In the last few years I have
lost a significant number of people who were very close to me...some at very short
notice. I can only hope they knew how important they were and that I loved
them because I was too busy to take the time to spend with them or to express how I felt about them as often as I should have. It's too late now to share the
things I intended to share with them. They are gone forever and I am left with
a big empty hole of regret that I can never fill up ...... and it is there for life.
Life is fickle and sometimes very short, so don't be too busy to do the things  that
are important to you. Ask yourself this question........ "Would I still be doing the same things today if I knew that tomorrow would never come?"  I'll bet your  answer is NO. So don't put things off until tomorrow, do it today!
I hope I haven't depressed you too much and that you will still enjoy this beautiful song and dance. 'Annie' sent me the music and I thank her for it .
  See you on the floor sometime....  Jan
