After posting this story, I received a comment below that was quite a surprise (an understatement!)

I’m nervous to share my singing voice. I’ve improved a lot since 2013.


Link to more about my song: YOU’RE NOT THE ONE


Original Song by Judy Unger, Copyright 2010

what we had, I took away

there was nothing left at all anyway

you spoke of love, but it’s just a word

I can’t fall for that line that I’ve heard, before . . .


I’m sorry you’re hurt; I just couldn’t lie

I have empty feelings, and I don’t know why

I had to end it; I know it’s unfair

I wonder if I’ll ever be able to care, for another. . .


you demanded things I did not feel

I can’t express what is not real

the love you wanted wasn’t there

the pain you’ll just have to bear


now that you’re gone, I can say honestly

what we had is still special to me

I look back and remember the fun

it’s just I realize you’re not the one, you’re not the one

you’re not the one for me

you’re not the one for me


Below is a thirty-year-old recording of my song. I’m no longer embarrassed to share my younger, high voice.

I share because it is part of my story.

    I think I looked pretty spiffy in that baby blue tux! The heart on my face is probably an improvement…but I don’t think my copy had it! Your posts are inspirational, thought provoking, and I hope, ultimately healing. Wishing you and your wonderful family all the best!…Sam

      Your comment has me in a state of shock! I can’t believe you read that I wrote a song for you – you never knew! It has been at least thirty years since I’ve seen you. Thank you for your lovely comment. It is great to hear from you.
      Okay, now that you know it’s you – I will take the heart off your face! The heart was not an improvement; you looked fine! I guess my blog has truly led to more “reconnecting” than I could have ever imagined!

      I also wish you and your family the best! Judy


I would love to hear your thoughts!
