Letters to Tuvia #58: Embraceable You (10-22-15)

 

 

Evening Tuvia,

I took my music back today as I rode up to New Paltz for another HVWP meeting with the leadership team.    Laura Nyro’s version of Embraceable You:

Embrace me, my sweet embraceable you
Embrace me, you irreplaceable you

Just one look at you
My heart grew tipsy in me
You and you alone
Bring out the gypsy in me

I love all the many charms about you
Above all, I want these arms about you

Don’t be a naughty baby
Come to papa, come to papa do
My sweet embraceable you

[Brief interlude]

I love all the many charms about you
Above all, I want my arms about you

So don’t you be, a naughty baby
Come to papa do
My sweet embraceable you

I used to play this  for you and sing along.  You were probably the only human being on this earth who encouraged me to keep singing because you knew that  I was singing  to you.

Today I let it rip.

I  sang and cried  all the way  up and back along the Thruway.  Together Laura and I sang it over and over again to you.

Love you,

Bonnie S.
