How many roads does a man travel to call himself a man ?
Thoughts of yesterday day this song above by these younger days in AUSTRALIA NOT VERY FAR FROM MY HOME resounded in my memory of of a time I knew a wonderful young man just starting to find his way.
I heard something from that time of sadness in all our lives to remind us just how blessed we are to have savoured life at all.
Dess never had that privilege of growing up, having children to carry on the family name of goddess
One very ordinary SATURDAY NIGHT he sat in a corner strumming his guitar singing soft fully this song written long before the release by these young guys these Aussie BEE GEES living in Queensland.
As a tear runs down my face I still hear his voice without a care in the world
That night he never reached home he fell asleep behind the wheel of his car
Harry ( my brother ) and I survived because he insisted we must be taken home and yet he still needed to travel one hundred miles to his MUM AND DAD to milk the cows.
As the sun rose that fateful morning the Police arrived at our home with the news no one ever needs to be told Desi was killed he fell asleep behind the wheel of his brand new prized possession, his sports car, a present from his family for Christmas.
We never forgot that day of death reared it’s ugly head , today I still feel a pain of of guilt terrible dark moments of dread about Christmas Day , “get over it said outsiders “
Desi didn’t ever have the opportunity of life. Breaks my heart, always will, but I’m not important in this true story
His Mum and DAD lived in hell, “ no parent should ever burry their child”
Until you do burry a CHILD you never know what that price you shall live with.
Years later I know how DESI’s MUM AND DAD felt like, shortly after they too passed away “broken”
Cause I do I buried my son too many years later
As I listen to these fine young men up above, only one remains alive today in AMERICA ~ there were 4 boys grown up here in AUSTRALIA ~ Bee Gees our favourite Sons
Thank you sharing my moments with me today , kindness and gratitude to all, peace ☮️ always
