Tuesday morning came,
Cleared my eyes and watched the rain
Falling from gently rolling clouds.
Raindrops danced around,
Singing before they drowned -
Forgotten like faces in a crowd.

And I wish that the planes flying above
Bring you quickly back home to stay, my love.
I want the raindrops
To sing to you their tune.
So I'll sign this note,
"With all my love, hope to see you soon."

I recall the times
When we laughed and made up rhymes -
Children with nothing else to do.
Cabin fires glowed,
Reflecting off the snow
That settled like a blanket and that was you.

And I wish that the planes flying above
Bring you quickly back home to stay, my love.
I want the raindrops
To sing to you their tune.
So I'll sign this note,
"With all my love, hope to see you soon."

Yep
Thank you, Bea. Yes, I did compose the melody as well years ago, and added backing harmonies on both choruses.

My notes show it was written 11-2-70 and made into a demo on 12-3-70. Though it was published the following year, I regret that it was never commercially released. Also ironic that I found a spot to sneak in the title within the dialogue toward the end of my longest short story (9,500 words), but "Hope to See You Soon" turned out to be my shortest song on record, clocking in at a mere 2:03. - Jim
