I walked down to the park last night
Warm breeze stirring up a soft moonlight
And my mind started drifting to way back when
Yes I do think about you every now and then

The other day I saw a car like you used to drive
I got a funny feeling down deep inside
And for the briefest moment I felt a smile begin
Yes I do think about you every now and then

I love my life and I'd never trade
Between what you and me had and the life I've made
She's here and she's real, but you were too
And every once in a while I think about you

I heard a song on the radio just yesterday
The same one you always asked me to play
And when the song was over
I wished they'd played it again
Yes I do think about you every now and then

I love my life and I'd never trade
Between what you and me had and the life I've made
She's here and she's real, but you were too
And every once in a while I think about you

I've been layin' here all night listenin' to the rain
Talkin' to my heart and tryin' to explain
Why sometimes I catch myself
Wondering what might have been
Yes I do think about you every now and then

Every Now And Then
Buddy Mundlock / Garth Brooks


     I disappeared from your life for your own good. To be in your life without committing to it was selfish for me and, most of all, unfair to you. I miss you often. There's not a week that goes by that I don't think about you. Almost as often, I think of a reunion. I wonder if it would be happy or sad or angry -- hoping for anything but angry. Months have passed. I know you have moved on. To drop in and say hello now might be out of place. But I do miss you. I miss your smile. I miss your personality. I miss your friendship. Sure, I'm happy now. I have no room to complain. I have a wife and a cat and a house and a job and purpose. But rarely does happiness come without holes. Your being gone is a hole. I can not fill it with anything I have here. I left to protect you. I stay gone to protect us both. Carrying out the latter is proving much harder than the former.
