I thought music might help me to recall
all that I've forgotten of you
The color of your eyes; your laugh
the way the sun played against your skin
on warm August days
Decorating the Christmas tree while
talking of summer and our party
such a silly girl to worry so
when it was so far away
But it was the one day that was ours
Our special day that would last forever
such a silly girl to love so much
to trust with such an open heart
Thirteen years, thirteen summers
Our special day that would last forever
such a silly girl

Beautiful image of a struggle to hold onto memories of someone loved. I like the idea of using music to hold onto that image. I sense loss here and hope that it is because of the same loss I see coming. We have a sixteen year old daughter and I still remember when she was a silly girl. But she's growing out of those earlier years and those days are becoming memories. I hope music will one day help me remember those silly days.
