32

00:
06:10,442 -- 00:06:13,032

...no bearings, no compass.

33

00:
06:13,400 -- 00:06:17,280

l kept crashing into things, a little

crazy, l guess.

to take it back.

You came into my dream last night

with that smile...

44

00:
06:55,107 -- 00:06:57,387

... that always held me

like a lover...

45

00:
06:57,732 -- 00:06:59,802

...rocked me like a child.

46

00:
07:01,899 -- 00:07:03,889

All l remember from the dream...

47

00:
07:04,232 -- 00:07:05,982

...is a feeling of peace.

48

00:
07:12,107 -- 00:07:13,747

l woke up with that feeling...

49

00:
07:14,065 -- 00:07:17,055

...and tried to keep it alive

as long as l could.

50

00:
07:17,898 -- 00:07:21,648

l'm writing to tell you that

l'm on a journey toward that peace.

51

00:
07:22,565 -- 00:07:26,035

And to tell you l'm sorry

about so many things.

52

00:
07:28,064 -- 00:07:31,024

l'm sorry l didn 't take

better care of you...

53

00:
07:31,398 -- 00:07:35,438

...so you never spent a minute

being cold or scared or sick. ''
