Believe me, Errol, that is a beautiful song/poem for a 16 year old to be able to convey. Your feelings shine through right up to Cloud 9--where Susan is surely humming along. I'm glad that you shared it with us. Though our words and depths of meaning may change as time rolls by, the love we feel never does.
My own image of Susan is of the brightest star in the sky and my song to her, the most simplistic, but heartfelt "Twinkle, twinkle little star, HOW I wonder what you are....up above the sky so high....like a diamond in the sky"** You are someplace beautiful, I hope!
**written by Ann and Jane Taylor (1783-1824)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SUSAN!!
(with special thoughts to Tim and Gregg)
PS Errol - Hope your theatrical summer is a wonderful one!
Beautiful poem - we are all linked together today so hope you are well and enjoy My Foolish Heart - a very special one for me when I first discovered Susan. Enjoy your summer and hope all goes well with you and the shows.
Dear Susan...our star who shines on.
This is the first birthday I am celebrating with you! And while it is the day when YOU were born, it is the WORLD that received such a special gift! Thank you for all that you gave us over your lifetime. You are indeed a "treasured gift that keeps on giving." Happy Birthday, Susan! "It's Today!"
With loving thoughts, also, to your family who adored you.
P.S. To Errol - Your tribute to Susan, 'My Valentine Heart,' when you were a boy of 16, says a lot about the sincerity, depth of feelings and the talent of the man you would grow up to be. From your fellow thespian: "Break a Leg" and enjoy every moment on stage!
