And I Love You So

A Ragtag Daily Word Prompt

Lately I sing the chorus of this song as I leash up the dogs to go for a walk. It popped into my head a few weeks ago and I can’t stop singing it.

My dad used to sing this song. Just the chorus. Often his timing was off. He sang too fast or too slow, but always with feeling.

He died in 2004. I can barely remember his voice except for the songs he sang. His singing voice is as clear as a bell.

Listening to this song makes my heart ache. He was always a source of strength and comfort and how I wish he was here. It’s lonely here without him.

I miss you Dad and I love you so.

And I love you so
The people ask me how
How I’ve lived till now
I tell them I don’t know

I guess they understand
How lonely life has been
But life began again
The day you took my hand

And yes, I know how lonely life can be
The shadows follow me
And the night won’t set me free
But I don’t let the evening get me down
Now that you’re around me


And you love me too
Your thoughts are just for me
You set my spirit free
I’m happy that you do

The book of life is brief
And once a page is read
All but love is dead
That is my belief

And yes, I know how lonely life can be
The shadows follow me
And the night won’t set me free
But I don’t let the evening get me down
Now that you’re around me


And I love you so
The people ask me how
How I’ve lived till now
I tell them I don’t know
