My song today is “It’s Like We Never Said Goodbye”.This song was written by Roger Greenaway and Geoff Stephens and was recorded by American country and western singer, Crystal Gale. It was released in February 1980 as the second single from the album ‘Miss the Mississippi’.The song was Number 1 for one week and spent a total of fourteen weeks on the charts.
There are close friends in our lives who we may not hear from in a few years, and yet the relationship bond is never broken. I had a lifelong friend called Tony Walsh who died a year or so back. We had been friends since our childhood years, and if the phone rang after a two-year gap in our communication, as soon as we started talking again, it was as though we were carrying on our conversation of two years earlier as though there had been no break in our discussion in between.
I also have an old Probation Officer pal called Keith from Huddersfield. He always phones me up at Christmas time for a catch-up natter. I suppose when I think about it, it is just as if we respond to these long-term friends as we would to family members. Near or far, they are a part of us who need no goodbyes.
Love and peace
