Last one for now.... A bit country, meant to be a slow, poignant song.

When You Get to Where You’re Going

She came to him one morning, said, Honey, please sit down
I so desperately need to smile but lately all I do is frown
Things have gotten hazy and I feel I’ve lost my place
I hate asking you to leave but I just need some space.

It’s not that I don’t love you; it’s that I don’t know who I am
We got married way too soon; it wasn’t what I had planned
So now we need to take the time that we didn’t take before
To get to know each other before our marriage can be restored
He said
I’m taking my things with me
But my heart stays here with you
I’ll give you all the time you need
To do what you need to do
When you get to where you’re going
And you find out who you are
Let me know, I love you so
I won’t be very far.

A few months down the road she said we need to talk again
Things were so much better in Ft. Worth, so I’m moving back again
The children were happier there and I had my career
But no matter how much I try I can’t create that here
She said
I’m taking the children with me
And we’re keeping your last name
Yes, I know, that once we go
Things will never be the same
When I get to where I’m going
If you tell me you still care
I’ll call for you; you’re welcome to.
Come and join me there.

He said, This isn’t the kind of leaving that I can take for long
I have learned that without you near, I am not that strong.
I know that you will do what you feel is best
I’ll give you the time, and my love, and let God do the rest

You’re taking my heart with you
Where ever you may go
No matter how much time may pass
I’ll love you, you know.
When you get to where you’re going
If you decide that you still care
Give me a ring, I’ll drop everything,
And come running to you there.
