When is it really the ‘right time’? 10

In our short time together, I have learned a lot from you. As I sit here at work, I try to focus, but my mind wanders and ponders all of the ‘what ifs’. What if we had met at different stages in our lives? I also ponder the ‘what wills’, and I wonder what the future holds. Is there ever a good time? What sacrifices are worth making for a relationship? If you had made sacrifices, could you have been happy, or is it time to yourself that you really need, or was it just not meant to be? Will I still be around when the time is right? Will the time ever be right? What is the right time? The hardest part is thinking about what could have been, especially since I’m the type of person to follow my heart before my brain.

I guess that’s why life is so exciting, because with every day a new adventure is born. It has been a special journey that will never be forgotten, and I really would have done anything for you.

As I depart into a new phase of my life; yet another journey, I’d like to leave you with the lyrics to my all-time favourite song (Hasn’t Hit me Yet by Blue Rodeo).

You say that you’re leaving
Well that comes as no surprise
Still I kinda like this feeling
Of being left behind

Yea this ain’t nothing new to me
Well it’s just like going home
It’s kinda like those sunsets
That leave you feeling so stoned

I fell through this crack
And I kinda lost my head
I stand transfixed
Before this street light
Watching the snow fall
On this cold December night

I never thought this could happen
But somehow the feeling is gone
You got sick of the patterns
And I got lost in this song

Hey hey I guess it hasn’t hit me yet
I fell through this crack
And I kinda lost my head
I stand transfixed
Before this streetlight
Watching the snow fall
On this cold December night

And out in the middle of Lake Ontario
The same snow is falling
On the deep silent water
The great dark wonder
Into the waves of my heart
Into the waves of my heart

    Dena, I do care for this girl.

    PS: I noticed on your blog that you have ordered your blog links in a particular order with your favourite blogs at the bottom of the list 😛

    I hope things work out.

    Good song selection.

    Thanks Brett. We’ll see how it all turns out.

    Hasn’t Hit Me Yet has been my favourite song for around 6 or 7 years now. I played in a band in high school and that’s how I first heard the song. It was one of the songs we played.

    Awesome. What instrument do you play?? Do you still play?

  6. Jim Jul 22,2005 3:08 am

    I primarily play bass guitar. I still play once in a while, but not nearly as much as I used to. But I have a 300 watt cabinet and a 250 watt amp in my room, so sometimes I crank it up. Not sure if the apartment neighbours like it, but they haven’t complained yet ;).

    I also played a lot of drums when I was younger, and back in the day I wasn’t a bad trumpet player.

    Hmm. That’s a lot of instruments. Trumpet eh? Were you in the marching band at E.L. Crossley?

  8. iBrett Jul 22,2005 4:00 am

    Additionally, if you were in the marching band were you also in the movie Canadian Bacon?

    Funny you mention it Brett. Incidentally I was in the Marching band in Grade 9. Most of my friends don’t even know that.. haha.. but I played trumpet since Grade 7, so it was a good way to show it off 😉

    But I wasn’t in the movie.. although my sister was in the movie. I remember she got something like $250 a day for sitting there doing nothing. That was a lot of money for a 15 or 16 year old at the time. hehe..

    Jimbelina, I’m just trying to confuse everyone with the alphabetical order. You’re still #1 🙂

    Good luck with the girl. I hope you get to enter the Pink Castle. (j/k)
