What’ll I Do?

As with many times lately, in the evening, yesterday, I turned on the Golden Girls (surprise to anyone who knows me, right?).  I frequently put the Golden Girls on and make jewelry or relax of an evening.

On one of the Golden Girls episodes, Dorothy sings a song called What’ll I Do by Irvin Berlin.  It really touched me and made me think of Faith.  I just sat and cried and missed my baby girl.  I know that I will never stop missing her until the day we meet again.  Sometimes my emotions of missing her just creep up on me and there is no stopping them, but I think that is good.  The lyrics that really touch me are when it says: “What’ll I do with just a photograph, To tell my troubles to? When I’m alone, With only dreams of you, That won’t come true, What’ll I do?’

I will always dream of you my precious Faith Melody.  I love and miss you with all of my heart.  



Here are the lyrics:
Gone is the romance that was so divine.
’tis broken and cannot be mended.
You must go your way,
And I must go mine.
But now that our love dreams have ended…

What’ll I do
When you are far away
And I am blue
What’ll I do?

What’ll I do?
When I am wond’ring who
Is kissing you

What’ll I do?
What’ll I do with just a photograph
To tell my troubles to?

When I’m alone
With only dreams of you
That won’t come true
What’ll I do?

What’ll I do with just a photograph
To tell my troubles to?

When I’m alone
With only dreams of you
That won’t come true
What’ll I do?


Songwriters: IRVING BERLIN
