The Future Home of Iditarod Dreams: Sleeping Under the Same Big Sky

The Future Home of Iditarod Dreams: Sleeping Under the Same Big Sky

The other day my wife sent me a little song lyric on Facebook from a Disney movie: An American Tail. It is about a little mouse named Fievel that goes out on his own to experience an adventure but is forced to leave his family behind. Kinda sounds like what I am doing.

I will admit that this is the hardest thing I have ever done–being apart from those that I care about. They depend on me and I depend on them. They are my strength. Somehow we will get through this, I know, but until then I will sing this song…

Somewhere Out There

Somewhere out there,

beneath the pale moonlight,

someone’s thinking of me and loving me tonight.

Somewhere out there,

someone’s saying a prayer,

that we’ll find one another in that big somewhere out there.

And even though I know how far apart we are,

it helps to think we might be wishing under the same bright star.

And when the night wind begins to sing a lonesome lullaby,

it helps to thing we’re sleeping under the same big sky.

Somewhere out there,

if love can see us through,

then we’ll be together, somewhere out there,

out where our dreams come true.

I welcome your comments and suggestions. Please comment below.
