I’ll Never Find Another You

There’s a new world somewhere
They call the promised land
And I’ll be there someday
If you could hold my hand
I still need you there beside me
No matter what I do
For I know I’ll never find another you

Musing… The sad death of Judith Durham… my ‘The Seekers Greatest Hits’ CD… the Tom Springfield song ‘I’ll never find another you’…

I relate to it on a number of levels… the lovely Judith Durham… an easy guitar riff that I learned as a teenager… Keith Potger’s 12 string guitar…

It’s a simple love song… for me in the 1960s… I met Rachel… I know I’ll never find another you…

Musing… The 1911 heatwave… fires without a well-equipped fire service… crops and livestock dying… insufficient food in the shops, starvation… national riots and strikes… What if I’d lived then?

Playing the ‘what if’ game… What if… My parents hadn’t brought me up in a Christian home… Rachel hadn’t agreed to marry me… We had no children – or 6… We hadn’t moved to Lowestoft…?

I’m me – in this time, in this place. I’ve lived my life… made choices… been through good and bad times… with my personality and character…

For better, for worse… I know you’ll never find another me…

Musing… Yesterday… Playing crazy golf with Grandson-Luca… chatting to Karen about her family, her holiday… Cycling down the promenade, Jack shouting ‘Good Afternoon’… playing chess with Roy talking about his work and football (especially Spurs!)…

Luca, Karen, Jack, Roy… I know I’ll never find another you…

It’s a long, long journey
So stay by my side
When I walk through the storm
You’ll be my guide…

This morning I’m grateful for all the people in my life, bringing their unique contribution, giving me richness, enjoyment, guidance, understanding…

…And as an expression of faith in my God…

But if I should lose your love, dear
I don’t know what I’d do
For I know I’ll never find another you.
