I was standing at the crossroads wondering which way to go, Left or right or straight on ahead I tell ya I didn’t know. One way was towards the responsibility of family and tradition, The other lead right to the girl, to love her was my ambition. Or should I straddle the two of them by staying on my course, But never reaching either goal would fill me with remorse. Do I keep the love I’ve known or do I go to the love I need? Knowing that whichever heart I chose I’d make the other bleed. Now that was many years ago and I know that I chose right, But sometimes that decision still haunts me in the middle of the night.

    yes, it is tough when we must decide between two loves. The heart is strong enough to love more than one, but our commitment can only be given to one. Happy Thanksgiving, Tony! Hugs, catie :)
