…::Words of Another #2::…

As I have mentioned in previous posts, the words of another speak for me when I cannot find words myself.  Words of another inspire, motivate, console and calm.  No matter the mood, the words of another replace the bits and pieces that are floating endlessly in my mind and help complete the puzzle that can sometimes consume you.  Whether the words are put to music or stand alone, they serve a purpose in my life. 

In My Life, The Beatles

This song speaks to me on many levels. It serves as a reminder of all the loved ones in my life; some that guide, guard and protect from above; others that are present in my everyday existence;  and other still that played an important role in my life at one time or another and remain here on this Earth, but are not present in my everyday walk of life in the here and now. 

People are funny “things.”  I struggle in the day-to-day trying to understand what makes people who they are and act the way the do.  Pay attention for an upcoming post that will share my take on “people.”

Below are the lyrics for “In My Life,”  a Beatles song that was released on the 1965 album, Rubber Soul.  I can’t even begin to remember the first time I heard this song as it has been my favorite for as long as I can remember breathing.  The WORDS and composition speak true to me in any number of situations; from remembrance to celebration to mourning to honor. John Lennon and Paul McCartney had a way of creating timeless pieces that speak to generations years after its original release. 

Words I live by….

“There are places I remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I’ve loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
In my life I love you more”

These works speak to me, help me breathe, force me to relive and remember.  So thankful for this “connection” I have with these words.  They help me to get by in the day-to-day EVERYDAY…
