song of the day. #52 #music


I guess this goes with this post from yesterday…

Maybe you don’t feel special in this world of many… but someone sees you that way. And I hope someone tells you because knowing that is everything. You will make a mark on someone… several someones… and they will remember because they care.

I’m not sure where all of this is coming from… this post… and yesterday’s. Maybe it’s because my amazing friend made me feel like I truly have worth in this world… and I’m trying desperately to believe her. Maybe it’s because I don’t want to be dismissed as nothing. Maybe it’s because I’m lonely and I wish I wasn’t. And I’m pretty sure it’s because I need to remind myself regularly that I matter… and not just to blood relatives. [It’s not that they don’t count… it’s just different. I think you know what I mean… don’t you?]

This song helps me remember… that someone cares even if I’m only one light in a sky of a million stars.

And of course, it’s impossible not to connect this to Chester’s light going out…

swirly
Should’ve stayed, were there signs, I ignored?
Can I help you, not to hurt, anymore?
We saw brilliance, when the world, was asleep
There are things that we can have, but can’t keep

If they say
Who cares if one more light goes out?
In the sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone’s time runs out?
If a moment is all we are
Or quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?
Well I do

The reminders, pull the floor from your feet
In the kitchen, one more chair than you need, oh
And you’re angry, and you should be, it’s not fair
Just ’cause you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it, isn’t there

If they say
Who cares if one more light goes out?
In the sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone’s time runs out?
If a moment is all we are
Or quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?
Well I do

    • More than fried foods?! 😀 You’re so cute. And you’re my light, too… kind of like a really bright spotlight or something. Not that you’re blinding. Wow, this analogy isn’t going well. 😀 Can’t imagine how I’d get through some days without you. Hell, all days… love you more than chocolate!
