Follow Me Everything is Alright

As I was in the bank, I caught the tail end of the song “Follow Me” by Uncle Kracker

It’s a mellow song that I like and hadn’t heard for a while… some of the lyrics resonated in my head….

Follow me
Everything is alright
I’ll be the one to tuck you in at night
And if you want to leave
I can guarantee
You won’t find nobody else like me

When I was with John he gave me that peace that everything was alright.  Things were good… I felt safe… and loved… everything was truly good… life was good…  And I can guarantee… I won’t ever find anybody else quite like John.  He was one of a kind.

I smiled.  I had it good.  I had it damn good.  Not everybody can say that about their relationships.

Tears would come later, but for the moment, I thought of John and loved him still with all of my heart.

About Mary K. Smith

I was widowed in July 2009, when I lost my beloved husband, John, to melanoma. Cancer SUCKS. We have a young son who was just a year old when his father died. I live on a small farm in Maryland which is home to horses, cats, and a dog. I started this blog as a way for me to heal, a way to remember my husband, and eventually I'd like to share it with our son so he can see the love that his father had for him, the love that we had for each other, what a great person his father was, and how hard his father fought to live.
