it seems like yesterday...

Remember back in '73, we were nineteen, life was simple
We listened to Denver and Croce
Our biggest concern the miles between us

Remember that hot July day,
We gather together
Friends and family, shared joy, promises of forever

Another anniversary
of that momentous time

Passes by today

A reason to pause and reflect

And be glad

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I'd like to do
Is to save every day
'Til Eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I'd save every day like a treasure and then,
Again, I would spend them with you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I've looked around enough to know
That you're the one I want to go
Through time with

If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty
Except for the memory
Of how they were answered by you

~Time in a Bottle by Jim Croce 1973

Another song that always gets me is Harry Chapin's "Cats In The Cradle" ~ They both remind me how quickly time passes and to appreciate what you have while it's here! HAPPY 33rd. ANNIVERSARY!!!
