Sometimes it would stop raining
Long enough for the stars to come out and then it was nice.
It was like just before the sun goes to bed
down on the bayou.
there was always a million sparkles on the water…
like that mountain lake.
It was so clear, Jenny,
it looked like there were two skies
one on top of the other.
And then in the desert, when the sun comes up…
I couldn’t tell
where heaven stopped and the earth began.
It’s so beautiful.
I wish I could’ve been there with you.
I love you.
You died on a Saturday morning.
And I had you placed here under our tree.
And I had that house of your father’s bulldozed to the ground.
that dyin’ was a part of life .
I sure wish it wasn’t.
Little Forrest is doing just fine.
But about to start school again so on,
and I make his breakfast, lunch, and dinner
I make sure he…
combs his hair and brushes his teeth every day.
Teaching him how to play Ping-Pong.
He’s really good.
Uh, Forrest, you go.
We fish a lot.
And every night, we read a book.
He’s so smart, Jenny.
You’d be so proud of him.
He, uh, wrote you a…a letter.
And he says I can’t read it. I’m not supposed to,
so I’ll just leave it here for you.
I don’t know if Mama was right or if it–it’s Lieutenant Dan.
I don’t know…
if we each have a destiny or if we’re all just floating around accidental-like
on a breeze…
but I–I think…
maybe it’s both.
Maybe both get happening at the same time.
But I miss you, Jenny.
If there’s anything you need…
I won’t be far away.
