The Relativity of time, and life...and some nice tunes.

There was a time I used to look into my father's eyes. In a happy home I was a king, I had a golden throne. Those days are gone, Now the memories are on the wall. I hear the songs Of the places where I was born. - Song by John Martin, Swedish House Mafia Time is one of those constants, at least in movement and in our place in it. It may slow down. It may speed up, or even stop for awhile. We may lose our hold on it, our understanding and perception of it. Drugs, meditation...there are things that can affect it...but in the end time is time. Things that are gone, for us, are gone. Our minds hold time though, memories and images, sights and smells, etched on the walls of our souls. I think of my grandfather, close my eyes, and I can taste a vanilla malt, and smell old musty paperback books. I think of my best friend, close my eyes, and can still feel her hand in mine. Even if I forget, that time, is a part of me. And I miss them both, so much sometimes it hurts. But I wouldn't remove them from my life. They were both important parts of me and my life. Take hope in that. Time may march on, but it's affect is with us forever. Those memories are on the wall, and we can choose to stop and remember, our fingers tracing the scrapes and dents of our lives. Take hope in that, those who are lost, those who have gone on, aren't really gone. Memories are powerful. They are one of the things that can beat time, etchings on the soul are there, no matter if you are conscious of them or not. My father said, "Don't you worry, don't you worry, child. See heaven's got a plan for you. Don't you worry, don't you worry now." - Song by John Martin, Swedish House Mafia https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1y6smkh6c-0

I am always attached to that memories of life especially song which is serves as the reminder of one's successful life of a person who is close to you. Every time you hear that song, it immediately directs you to the person attached to that song and likewise you recall his wonderful life.
