“THE REAL THING”

“[Christian and Gia], I know what you’re thinking. You two and I have much to say. And you’ve been making me crazy trying to understand but it’s impossible at your age. I know I said I’ll always try, but you’re going to bed alone again tonight, and you lie there in the dark and wonder why. I did it for you … because love should teach you joy, and not the imitation that your momma and daddy tried to show you. I did it for you, and for me, and because I still believe there’s only one thing you can never give up and never compromise on and that’s the real thing you need in love. You’re so afraid your life is over and nothing I can say can change your mind. How can anybody be so selfish and treat you both so cruel? Go on and scream at me and cry. I’ll always hold you in my soul and I’m never going to leave you all alone. But your mommy doesn’t live here anymore. I did it for you … because love should teach you joy and not the imitation that your momma and daddy tried to show you. I did it for you, and for me, and because I still believe there’s only one thing that you can never give up and never compromise on and that’s the real thing you need in love. Everybody’s got a boat upon the ocean. Not everybody’s sailing out to sea. And is there someone there for me?” ~ Kenny Loggins
