Okay, here’s the last word from me for a while. I have truly enjoyed participating on this forum, and have learned a thing or two about the production side of the music. Failed at learning ME however (smile). I write these songs, because as good as the professional writers are today, they don’t always write for me and my experiences and emotions in a way in which I can relate. So, I decided I’d just write for myself. Since Christmas I have written five songs and I cannot tell all of you how much I appreciate your input and kind words. I don’t just write for the accolades, although musicians do love that immediate gratification from audiences and peers. I write for the love of the music. With that here is the last song that I intend to post for a while. Going to spend time trying to listen to all of your songs and concentrate on other projects (I’m also writing a screenplay). So, with that here's my little song. It's a short one.

WITHOUT YOU THERE IS NO SPRING
Did I misunderstand?
Did I overstate our plans?
When you said that you were leaving,
Were my eyes closed, were my ears deceiving?
Now the seasons grow somewhat shorter
And my heart can find no songs to sing
Too soon, each year, I greet December
Because without you, there is no spring.
