Together Again

When we know someone so well and have many different shared experiences, life is rich beyond our wildest expectations. This song reflects our own thoughts as we have looked forward to a reunion, whether after a long absence or just a few days. The feelings of anticipation are always the same.

The level of excitement and energy surrounding our “return home” is a great indicator of the depth of relationship we have created over time, whether with a dear friend, a partner, or with children. What we hope and long for is an engagement with one another that is truly exciting, authentic and deeply felt. That is our definition of real togetherness. It can only be measured subjectively in our hearts.



Swept the porch and found a vase for the daffodils
There’s kindling on the hearth, ready to start a fire
Glasses sparkle, table’s set, candles wait for lighting
While the wine is chilling
Your favorite song will set the perfect mood
Everything is just for you
Just for you

I can hardly wait to see you
Catch up with what you’ve been doing
Find out if all your dreams have come true

Anticipated this day for so long
Ready and waiting since last we met
Expecting the fun we surely will have

After all these years
There is some mystery, still
Right along with ease in sharing a history
We were, we are, we will
Expecting the fun we surely will have
I hardly can wait . . . please don’t be late

So the plans have all been made, you are on your way
The suitcase has been packed, maybe a bit too heavy
Everything crossed off the list, but you wonder if there’s
Something you’ve forgotten
My favorite song starts playing in your head
Prompting . . . Sweet memories when we last met
Together again . . . Like it used to be . . . Just you and me
