Old songs, new lessons

   Listening to old songs.  Songs that shaped my teen years, but did I ever really hear what those song said?  Do lessons only get learned when it appears it's too late?

I close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moment's gone

  That is how moments go.  They are here and gone in a blink of an eye. What did you do in that moment?

All my dreams pass before my eyes, a curiosity

  Dreams.  Those illusive images that drift through our sleeping minds…

Dust in the wind

All they are is dust in the wind

Same old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea

  Songs, words and thoughts that have all been sung before, all have been said before and all have been thought before…  and will forever more…

All we do crumbles to the ground though we refuse to see

Dust in the wind

All we are is dust in the wind

   History.  Does it really teach us?  Do we really listen and do we really learn?  

Oh, ho, ho

Now, don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky

It slips away

And all your money won't another minute buy

  You can gather all the riches of this world, but those riches will be left behind when you go. And as the song goes, all those riches won’t buy you one more minute here.

Everything is dust in the wind

The wind

   All we leave behind, crumbles to the ground, except one thing.   Love.   Love stays.  If you have to leave anything behind, leave love everywhere you go.
