MARLENE LOVES THAD…

nobody can tell me there’s a god…just doesn’t make sense…but…there’s somethin’ out there…somethin’…

yeah…there’s somethin’…

woke-up in the middle of the night…never wake-up in the middle of the night…always just sleep right through…like a kid worn out from a day of playin’…never wake-up ‘fore five in the mornin’…other night was different though…different…

how so…

got-up just after midnight…’round one I guess…maybe it was half after…not sure…but for some reason I put my glasses on… could see the computer screen just clear as day… saver sayin’…,MARLENE LOVES THAD…MARLENE LOVES THAD…over and over…in red letters…love letters…

huh…really…

nobody can tell me there’s a god…can’t prove it to me…somethin’ out there…somethin’…I guess…

mmm…yeah…see that…

lost Marlene three years ago to cancer…she was beautiful…had eyes that just said love…a welcoming love to all she came in contact with…never knew a stranger…I’d bring guys from the job site over just ta’ grab some cash ‘fore goin’ out for beers and she’d wind-up makin’ ’em a complete meal…whole time singin’ in Portuguese…she was Brazilian…damn it was sexy when she sang Portuguese…told her that was all I wanted to hear was that Portuguese…she’d laugh…

i’ll bet…

I ‘member the night she passed away…we sat there in the hospital…holdin’ hands…lookin’ at each other…didn’t cry…didn’t want her to see me cry…couldn’t do that to her…

right…right…

she took all her strength an’ wrapped her arms ’round me…tight as she could…she held me…real close to her face…our eyes were locked-in on each other…she was tellin’ me goodbye…didn’t say a word…didn’t have to…tellin’ me goodbye…

an’ the other night with that screen saver sayin’…MARLENE LOVES THAD…MARLENE LOVES THAD…that was her…that was her that done that…her ghost…spirit…somethin…that was her…

yeah…probably was…

let me tell you somethin’…if there is a god…first thing I’m gonna’ ask him is why he took my Marlene…why’d he do that…an’ I’m not gonna’ be scared of him…no fear…but…I’ll ask him…I’m gonna’ ask him…

nobody can tell me that there’s a god…just doesn’t make sense…but…there’s somethin’ out there…somethin’…
