Passing of a Friend

September 26, 2015

I'm feeling rather sad and heartbroken today. Almost ten years ago, purely by chance, I met a wonderful woman; who would become my friend, muse and lover. She was the person who really inspired my to write, and part of the character of "Cathy" (the good parts...) was inspired by her. Parts of the character of "Ros" will be inspired by her. Circumstances prevented us from being together, but we met any chance we could. Then three years ago, a stupid argument broke us up. I discovered yesterday; purely by chance, that she had passed away in April this year.

Maybe I didn't treat you
Quite as good as I should have
Maybe I didn't love you
Quite as often as I could have
Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Maybe I didn't hold you
All those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you
I'm so happy that you're mine
If I make you feel second best
Girl, I'm so sorry I was blind

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Farewell, Lisa Ann Purdon; I treasure the time we had together.
