"I Saw You Today" as written by and Braddock....
Despite all the distance and time
And the changes that I have gone through
You never strayed far from my mind
And I never stop hoping once more I'll see you

Then I saw you today
In the backyard at play
Baby blue eyes, blond hair in the wind
She's you all over again
Although you went away
I saw you today

I used to wish on a star
And I used to send up a prayer
To Heaven where I know you are
That some day I'd see you up there or somewhere

Then I saw you today
In the backyard at play
Baby-blue eyes, blond hair in the wind
She's you all over again
Although you went away
I saw you
I saw you today

    General CommentI heard this song yesterday while driving in town. For the very first time I didn't know if I should smile or cry. It sounds as though his wife died and he saw someone who looked like her in a yard. And it brought back all those warm feelings he had for her while she was alive. He's fortunate, because sometimes time changes how one views the past. Sometimes a realization hits that you really have nothing to offer, and the person could never be happy or excited with/by you, even if she or he ever were able to make the leap, which really makes it a moot point. I look at my twin boys who are adults now each time my mind dares wander to "what if's." And then I automatically know where I stand. The daily reminder has been good for me...snapping me into reality and futility.
