It’s Five Minute Friday again! People all over the world blogging on the same topic on the same day for just five minutes and linking up at Lisa Jo’s place. Today’s topic: Song.
What is it about a song that seems to freeze a memory in time?
The music begins and your heart recognizes the tune. Suddenly, you are there. You are back in that place where friendships are whole and love is forever.
There is comfort in the chorus. It’s as if you could reach out and touch the people from your past. You can hear the laughter of days gone by. You can still recall the place, the time – the feelings from that moment.
Time has marched on but that song is still the same.
You can sing every word without missing a beat. The lyrics are etched in your heart.
Then, the song ends and it is like waking up from an all too pleasant dream. The curtain comes down and the memory vanishes into nothingness. And, for the rest of the day, you find yourself longing to hear that song again.
