I started thinking what a waste life is when you don't have anyone to share beautiful moments like this with. It kind of takes away from the beauty and serenity when you look at it from just one set of eyes.
Sorry your day was a bummer IC. But I can relate to your feelings and that song is one of my favorites. From time to time I take a ride to some scenic place and then it hits me. I'm alone with no one to share the moment with. It happens at other times too. It really sucks!
Then again.......I always get bummed out this time of year. Unlike you with a wife who views you as dead..........I don't have a wife. Wish I did though! Next month will be 10 years since my wife died and although the "heartache and pain" are gone, I still have memories and wish I could go back.
Hiya IC & happydad...I hear you both clearly on this one and understand your sadness. While I myself haven't been married, I know what it's like to feel a real emptyness around moments where you experience something that should be so uplifting, but without either that someone extra special or really special people around you love to share those moments with they seem so shallow and wasted. I've travelled to some great destination overseas, but have felt that with all the build-up to getting there I've been consistently disappointed upon arrival, not because the place itself wasn't all I ever dreamt it to be, but that without seeing the joy and excitement on a loved ones face it's just not all that moment could be.
I hope you both find love again, you've still got many years ahead of you, and you both deserve to be happy and much loved.
All the best, and at least know you are loved by this lil frog, x
