Jacqueline Kennedy

I just can't seem to escape Jacqueline Kennedy's story lately. Being named after her is probably one of the greatest thing. My mother had a choice between Margaret Thatcher or Jacqueline Kennedy. Jack Q U EL in E Ken(Yes) & Edy. My father (Ed) agreed to name me Jacqueline. My dad added Sharon as my second name. Anyhow. Just a play on names. My mother had a huge fastination over Jackie O! I remember how my mom showed me picture of Jackies biography. I adored her face... Full of grace that woman, something I wish many more children would emulate. A private woman of great stature, known for being "Quiet and sentimental; elegant and majestic!" Jackie O is known for her courage. Fascinating she called her late husband, "Jack" while her Father Mr. Bouvier known as, "Black Jack."

The most fascinating thing I find in Jackie is her sentimental side, preserving museums, maintaining that lady character under various circumstances. Preserving the family life and the exemplifying grace from beginning to end.

So here...I dedicate Jacqueline Kennedy a song from Josh Groban. A song in grief of loosing everything you ever loved in one day. The woman who can keep a secret so deep..."I wanted to be there when he dies!"

She wore the blood stains clothing on after the President died and regretted washing off the blood from her face and hand.
"I want them to see what they've done to Jack!"

Yes, Jack was no perfect camelot. Jackie was criticized for being a queen of denial (denying full well his passed relationship with another woman). She held up her end of being a loyal and trusted First Lady.

Jacqueline is a real woman, a loyal wife who despite all odds stayed strong and in loosing ones husband, summed up her grief with these words....
"Now, I have nothing left!"

Oh, no! Here is that moment
I feared for a long time, you know
I already know
what it is you are going to tell me,
that it's the end of us.

I know that with him
you feel freer
to accept his love;
to count on him more

What a shock to me,
I who gave you everything inside of me
As you go you are taking my heart with you

One love forever
lasts only an instant (a moment)
There are so many memories
that vanish with you
Only that dream remains,
the story of lovers,
but in the end you will leave me.

This city that I think of myself as being
is deserted of tears
I feel my heart drowning inside of me
while you are with her.

They say that you don't die from love;
You don't loose anything;
But now I feel that fire dying within me

I also know I should be happy for you
But I lie, because
I wish you to stay here with me

A love forever
lasts only an instant (moment)
there are so many memories
that will vanish with you
Only that dream remains
that story of lovers
But, in the end
you will leave
you will leave, leave in pain

A love forever
lasts only a moment
there are so many memories
that will vanish with you
Only that moment remains
if only for an instant
but in the end
you will leave
(and be) far from me.

Translation to English from Un Amor Per Siempre. Perhaps the pain happened before Jack died. Why does there have to be another woman? How far can one woman be in denial of loosing someone. Yet she stayed madly in love with him for the sake of family and the whole world. Then there is that final moment...to be the wife of one man till the end despite the betrayal.

Jacqueline a loyal wife who despite all odds stayed strong and in loosing ones husband, summed up her grief with these words....
"Now, I have nothing left!"
