When we listen to music we love, the kind that transcends time and brings back wonderful memories every time we hear it: this moment is one of life’s profound small pleasures. The words resonate with our soul, they disturb our emotions or incite us to action. Words fracture our hearts in a painfully desirable way. Sometimes through their mystique we can live a life not ours through a book, a song or a poem.
Even when we say good-bye to those we love, especially to those who have left their mark on us, our words can have the power of life or death. We don’t want to be careless with our words, for by them we justify or we condemn. We lift up or we throw down… we can spell bind, or we can confuse.
Like waves crashin’ on the beach
And for one desperate moment there
He crept back in her memory
God it’s so painful
Something that’s so close
And still so far out of reach
We will be remembered by our words.
