A VERY SPECIAL SABATO MUSICALE

This was one of the first Italian songs I ever learnt and nothing could better describe my feelings this week.  Tonight I dedicate this song to my sister, Jill:

Gino Paoli - Prima di vederti




Long before I saw you
I'd already known you
in another world,
an ageless world,
so far away 
and so long ago,
Who knows where?
Who knows when
you lived with me?

Long before I met you
I was waiting for you.
My old life, that I had then
is ageless now.
So far away
and so long ago
Who knows where?
Who knows when
I knew you before?

So far away
and so long ago
Who knows where?
Who knows when
I knew you before?

Beautiful, poignant words :-)

I have just read about your sister Jill and am delighted that you have been reunited at last.
You look so alike, I bet Simi thinks she's got two Mummies now!
You both must be over joyed to have found each other after all this time.
I look forward to reading more when you have time to write,
The lyrics of the song are so fitting.
Much love to you and Simi (I bet she's thrilled to meet her Auntie),


Di and Chloe xxxx

Thank you, Rosaria. I'm having trouble imagining my state of mind myself! Grazie, Lee.
