A twinge of sadness

XM just played "Dressed up Like Nebraska," by Josh Rouse.

My second wife Nancy got that album for me,
maybe in 2000,
but I didn't care for it,
so she returned it.
She contracted leukemia in the spring of 2002
just as spring was waking up the flowers
and died in the spring of 2003
just as her last spring was waking up the flowers.
Hearing that song just now gave me a twinge of sadness.
