Two Words

TWO WORDS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In a while, in a word,
Every moment now returns.
For a while, seen or heard,
How each memory softly burns.
Facing you who brings me new tomorrows,
I thank God for yesterdays,
How they led me to this very hour,
How they led me to this place…
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Every touch, every smile,
You have given me in care.
Keep in heart, always I’ll,
Now be treasuring everywhere.
And if life should come to just one question,
Do I hold each moment true?
No trace of sadness,
Always with gladness…
‘I DO…’
(instrumental)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Now a song that speaks of now and ever,
Beckons me to someone new,
Unexpected, unexplored, unseen,
Filled with promise coming through.
In a while, in a word,
You and I forever change,
Love so clear, never blurred,
Has me feeling wondrous, strange,
And if life should come to just one question,
Do I face each moment true?
No trace of sadness, always with gladness,
‘I DO…’
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Never with sadness…
Always with gladness…
‘I…DO….’
 
 
 
I never watched her wedding. I hated her for getting married. I no longer bought magazines with her in it after that day. I no longer anticipated TV shows where she guested.
 
I lost the person I wanted to grow up to be. I grew up knowing she IS Lea of Tomorrow, of A Whole New World, of On My Own. To me, she belonged to the stage and nothing else. I looked forward to more musicals and songs; to more Tony Awards and Lawrence Olivier’s.
 
It never crossed my mind that she is human and has the needs and wants of one… stupid childhood idolatry.
 
Yet, this remarkable song is her vow to a new beginning, welcoming whatever may come with open arms. I’d like to have that same optimism…
 
After having her first baby, I had now the courage to watch Rob and her at the altar for the first time. Leave it to Lea to turn even her vows into an award-winning performance. 😀

  • An attempt to remember.

  • The author and editor would like to thank the visitors of this site for dropping by and taking time to go through the articles.

    These are simply but ramblings of one woman struggling to retain as much youth in a fast-aging world. With her deteriorating senses and memory, this is her way holding on to as much as she can remember.

    The tone of the blog will most-likely change once she shifts to another phase in life. As of the moment, she claims to be at peace while in hibernation.
