A note from Susan:
It's never too late to find love!
"It is a strange thing to think that many people regard themselves as too old to start dating or to find a new relationship. In reality the qualities that make a healthy relationship are timeless and ageless – kindness, thoughtfulness, honesty and respect etc. If anything, a person’s capacity to show these qualities improves with age and therefore so does their chances of forming a relationship that will last."
At Last, written by Mack Gordon and Harry Warren
My love has come along
My lonely days are over
And life is like a song
Oh, yeah, yeah, at last
The skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up in clover
The night I looked at you
And I found a dream that I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill to press my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known
Oh, yeah, yeah, and you smile, you smile
Oh, and then the spell was cast
And here we are in Heaven
For you are mine at last
