The M&M thing happened after I brought my darling little granddaughter back home after spending 5 fantastic days with her. While she was here, we had a supply of M&M's for special moments... I was feeling super sorry for myself, missing my little cutey, and went looking for the best remedy- CHOCOLATE. And there they were, still in the bowl, waiting for her little fingers to take one, no two, no five... oh boy. It made me smile. I thought "She's not really gone. She left her sweetness behind..." Well that morphed into "You're not really gone, your sweetness lingers on" and all of a sudden, a song started to take shape:
Drifting through the air that you wore yesterday
when you were right there in the chair by my side
your book still open to your favorite page
and in my mind I see the smile your eyes couldn't hide
you're not really gone... your sweetness lingers on. ♪♫♪
Damn- will it be a hit? Haha- maybe, maybe not. But I bet there are people who have felt that sweet ache, and can relate to missing someone who was just there, whose sweetness lingers on...
Ahh art, and ahh inspiration- keep it coming! (And someone please take these M&m's before I eat them all... oh wait, I already did... They really ARE gone...)
