A Beatles Love Letter

indexDear Prudence,

Yesterday I had a hard day’s night because I wanted to hold your hand. I could say ‘love me do’ but Mother Superior jumped the gun. But nothing’s gonna change my world because you’re the girl with kaleidoscope eyes. With you love is all, love is new, love is all, love is you. I know that you told me that one and one and one is three but love was such an easy game to play, now I need a place to hide away.

I know that you will plainly see the biggest fool to ever hit the big time, I think I’m gonna be sad, I think it’s today, yeah; slowly, I feel that ice slowly melting…it seems like years since it’s been clear.

I know there’s been others – Eleanor (boy, was that ever depressing), Julia, Rita, Penny, Sally, Michelle, Nancy, Magil and Lil, Lucy, Molly, Madonna and Vera. But they were all dizzy, lovely, lady and Vera left me for Chuck and Dave.

I look at the world and I notice it’s turning…with every mistake we must surely be learning still my guitar gently weeps.

Oh, you were only waiting for this moment to be free. Let’s just say, “ob-la-di ob-la-da,” move on and find Father McKenzie for our wedding. Let’s go back to our room and find Gideon’s bible.

Close your eyes and I’ll close mine, good night, sleep tight and greet the brand new day.

Hey, it’s Jude
