Lyrics to my life #1

“Oh very young, what will you leave us this time

You’re only dancin’ on this earth for a short while

And though your dreams may toss and turn you now

They will vanish away like your dads best jeans

Denim blue, faded up to the sky

And though you want them to last forever

You know they never will

(you know they never will)

And the patches make the goodbye harder still.”

Cat Stevens-Oh Very Young

This is my first installment of a lyrics to my life posts. I did not have to take long to find my first selection as it kept stirring about in my thoughts. Reasons and rhyme and a purpose for it all I’m sure. I’ve always been drawn to this song and this part always brings such emotion to my heart, perhaps it is because it was one of the first songs I listened to after finding out my beloved dog Zip had passed. For those of you who are new here, my signature, Infinite Zip came from honoring a beloved piece of my heart, the pup who woke me to see a hundred fireflies flickering beneath a starlit sky in the middle of the night, just because. He was a gift indeed and we are coming up on his anniversay of resting among the stars forever. The pain has lessened but the memories live on. Like old faded blue jeans, you find that perfect fit but to our dismay, they do not last forever, then again, nor shall we. Peace and blessings and thank you again Saintswest for the inspiration to share the world of lyrics to my life. Zip never wore jeans, but if he had been human, this would be him, a classic denim soft yet rugged fit.

  1. Thanks Sheldon,
    Always a favorite song of mine
    And Zippy is a deserving dog for,the honor of the first
    Lyrics of my life,
    Glad you enjoyed it my friend,
    Although I feel I shouldn’t be
    I’m in a good place
    Gaining strength of mind
    As I watch the crumbling of some things…
    Reasons and purposes of course,
    Just staying the course as best as I know how…
    Hard but a good feeling at the end of the day.
    Peace and love always,
