Forever Young, #1059


An old family friend passed away yesterday.  Only the thing is, he wasn’t actually that old.  Death is always a hard pill to swallow, but when someone is taken too soon, it just plain sucks.  Unfortunately, I’ve witnessed several losses over the last couple of years of good people passing too young, and each time, it’s like there’s a new chink in my heart.  What a sobering feeling to begin the day with, but it’s an honest feeling that I know so many of my readers will relate to.

The only silver lining is that in our minds the memories of our too young lost loved ones will remain forever young.  Still, I’d take remembering them old just to have more time with any of them.

I am feeling sad today.  I guess every day can’t be a happy day.  Thank goodness for treasured photos to always look back to.

My song of the day is Rod Stewart’s “Forever Young.”  It was tough to choose between his “Forever Young” & Bob Dylan’s, but for the purpose of this blog, Stewart’s felt more appropriate.  Today is a day for hugging your loved ones a little tighter.  I’m off to do just that.


About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
