"My mind's distracted and diffused
My thoughts are many miles away
They lie with you when you're asleep
And kiss you when you start your day"

Remember that time you were really scared and I said everything was going to be OK?

It is.

This has to be one of my favorite songs. Let me tell you the short version of the story behind it for me.

When I was diagnosed with diabetes in 1972 I ended up spending 2 weeks (long, boring, lonely weeks) in a hospital ward in Ireland while my blood sugars were balanced and I was taught about diabetes and diet and so on.

A good friend of my Mum's gave me a gift of Simon and Garfunkel's Greatest Hits on cassette tape. During the 2 weeks in hospital I spent a lot of time listening to the entire tape.

Kathy's Song is one of my favorites from this album. Even today I can hardly stand to think about it. But I still love that song.

bernard - bittersweet, I guess. It seems to be a song that is special to a lot of people. Thanks for sharing your story.
