… didn’t we almost have it all?
I opted not to do a Sunday Snip today, not only because of the recent news of the death of Whitney Houston, but because I just couldn’t dip through all of my work to pick something. I’ve reached that point where I am anxious to have something new from MYSELF to read.
Anyway, in deference and honor to one of my favorite favorite favorite music artists, I’d like to pay tribute to Ms Houston on my blog today. My favorite song from her was ‘Didn’t We Almost Have It All‘. On more than one occasion, I have been at a stoplight, belting this song out at full volume. It’s a good thing the song was at full volume, too because I cannot sing a lick. Couldn’t carry a tune across the street in a bucket, as my mother says.
I love this song because of the lyrics. It’s obvious that there was a great, great love, but she isn’t downtrodden and she doesn’t have a f— love attitude. She recognizes an incredible feeling, at an incredible time and gives love it’s due.
“Didn’t we have the best of times? When love was fresh and new? Couldn’t we reach inside and find the world of me and you? We’ll never lose it again, ’cause once you know what love is, you’ll never let it end.”
I want that kind of love. Rest in Peace, Whitney. Love you and miss you already.
