Something you get through, by Willie Nelson

Although the theme this month is specifically about the #BanBPSD campaign I am involved in, I needed a ‘Willie Nelson fix’ today, and wondered if anyone may as well. Dementia is not something you ‘get over’, but with the right support, it is something we can get though.

Lyrics

When you lose the one you love
You think your world has ended
You think your world will be a waste of life
Without them in it
You feel there’s no way to go on
Life is just a sad, sad song
But love is bigger than us all
The end is not the end at all
It’s not somethin’ you get over
But it’s somethin’ you get through
It’s not ours to be taken
It’s just a thing we get to do
Life goes on and on
And when it’s gone
It lives in someone new
It’s not somethin’ you get over
But it’s somethin’ you get through
It’s not somethin’ you get over
But it’s somethin’ you get through
It’s not ours to be taken
It’s a thing we get to do
Life goes on and on
And when it’s gone
It lives in someone new
It’s not somethin’ you get over
But it’s somethin’ you get through
It’s not somethin’ you get over
But it’s somethin’ you get through
Songwriters: Buddy Cannon / Willie Nelson

Being abandoned by family is also not something you get over, but it is something we have to get through.  Today, for some strange reason, I am really feeling the pain of being abandoned by my parents and siblings… hence my Willie Nelson fix!

  1. Thanks Kate for the Willie fix made me cry thinking of you being sad. Thanks also for being so honest about your feelings and emotions ❤️A little uncanny that I play mum a Willie song tonight Always on my mind. Often my go to song to say sorry to her for my past and not always being the daughter she needed and no amount of longing can change that now. But she is always on my mind especially the last few days when her gaze is so distant and I struggle to stay connected with her but that gives me no reason to let my sweet love for die when she needs it most.
    The trick is my friend to know who you are and what makes you tick and what motivates you and not worry about how others see you. Wishing you smiles tomorrow xx ness
