AM I THAT EASY TO FORGET?
Over early morning coffee these thought were prompted by an email I received the previous evening and Ray Price.
Am I that easy to forget? I once was asked that question.
No not someone asking me if they were that easy to forget but another party asking that question as I sat with them, “Do you really think I am that easy to forget?” "What we once had is that easy to forget?"
We were sitting talking and he was coming out of a “break-up.” They had gone together for a long time and in his mind they were serious. He had a lot of questions. I just sat and listened and felt like I was of little help. There were a lot of “whys” and “ifs” in his thoughts and conversation.
This morning on my way to my coffee place I slipped in an old Ray Price cd. Love Ray Price. The second song into the cd raised that question. I bet that is a question that may be almost as old as man himself. This song brought back the memory from years past of my friend, our conversation and his painful experience. I still don’t have an answer. I guess in some cases yes it is that easy for us to be forgotten. Then maybe in other cases not quite so easy.
“Am I That Easy To Forget”
They say you’ve found somebody new
But that won’t stop my lovin’ you
I just can’t let you walk away
Forget the love I had for you
Guess I could find somebody, too
But I don’t want no one but you
How could you leave without regret
Am I that easy to forget
Before you leave be sure you find
You want his love much more than mine
‘Cause I’ll just say we’ve never met
If I’m that easy to forget
There is still a touch of sadness as I think back to that day and that question.
Have you ever thought about how easy or hard it might be for someone to remember or.......to forget you?
