Remembering

When I heard the topic for this week’s blog carnival, this song was the first thing that popped into my head and I just couldn’t shake it. I’m not going to pretend this song has any deep, hidden spiritual meaning…

But then again, lyrics can mean different things to different people; may even mean more or less depending on the season of life one happens to be going through. That’s the beauty and power of a well written song.

So what do I take from the song at the moment? I’m reflecting on memories – both sweet and sad. That’s a good thing, I think. Just as long as they don’t prevent us from creating new ones.

Remember yesterday, live for today. Keep your eyes on the Eternal.

I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don’t let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

I’m so tired but I can’t sleep
Standin’ on the edge of something much too deep
It’s funny how we feel so much but we cannot say a word
We are screaming inside, but we can’t be heard

But I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don’t let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

I’m so afraid to love you, but more afraid to lose
Clinging to a past that doesn’t let me choose
Once there was a darkness, deep and endless night
You gave me everything you had, oh you gave me light

And I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don’t let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

And I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don’t let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories
Weep not for the memories
