Nobody Left To Run With Anymore

Wednesday, November 20th, 2019


It is six years to the day that I lost my twin sister, Sue.

It’s not an easy day; losing her has been the hardest thing that I have ever had to endure.


Sue truly was a warrior and I took for granted that she would always be here with me.

We often shared the same thoughts, bought the same clothes, liked the same music, had the same sense of humor and knew what the other was thinking.

Very early in the morning, just days before she passed, I tried to communicate with her telepathically so that with practice, I would be able to communicate with her after she was gone.

As I laid in bed next to her in the dark, I kept saying mentally, Susie, if you can hear me, say yes. I did this repeatedly for a few minutes as she peacefully slept, when to my surprise, she yelled out “Yeah!” I couldn’t believe it! I almost jumped out of bed!

When she woke up, I told her what had happened and she was blown away as well. She asked me what did I do next and I told her, that I telepathically said: “Do it again!” We both busted out laughing.

I know that she gives me signs that she is with me but it’s not the same as having her here. I miss her and the times that we shared so much. I’m trying not to dwell on what I was doing at this point in time six years ago, trying not to remember the pain, but it’s not easy.

I know that if Sue were here, she would be here for me the way I was for her just hanging out, bringing food or whatever.

Having her by my side really would have been a comfort. I used to sit with her when she went for chemo….now it’s my turn only I am there by myself.

I worked out this morning and the first song that came on was Nobody Left To Run With Anymore by the Allman Brothers. That song just reminds me of her. Nobody left to do the crazy things we used to do before.

Followed by the Tom Petty song Rebels, we both were rebels and that’s exactly how I feel right now; one foot in the grave, one foot on the pedal I was born a rebel. My version of the chorus goes:

Hey Hey Hey
We were born rebels,
Jersey City on a Sunday evenin’
Yeah with one foot in the grave
And one foot on the pedal
We were born rebels

We were both born rebels; double trouble and that is why we had so much fun!

No One to Run with by The Allman Brothers Band

Everybody wants to know where Jimmy has gone
He left town I doubt if he’s coming back home

Well Tony got a job, three kids and a lovely wife
Working at the commerce bank for the rest of his life


Nobody left to run with anymore
Nobody left to do the crazy things we used to do before
Nobody left to run with anymore

I’m gonna hit the road, adios my friend
Go someplace and start all over again
Don’t know where I’m going, like a gypsy out on the road
I’ll go someplace and join a traveling show


Nobody left to run with anymore
Nobody wants to do the crazy things we used to do before
Nobody left to run with anymore
Nobody left to run with anymore
Nobody left to run with anymore

I think Jimmy must have had the right idea
Packed his stuff and he got right out of here
I don’t know where he’s at but I’m sure that he’s ok
Now i realize what Jimmy was trying to say

Nobody left to run with anymore
Nobody wants to do the crazy things we used to do before
Nobody left to run with anymore
Nobody left to run with anymore
Nobody left to run with anymore
