Silly Isn't It?

Silly isn’t it?
How important are the people in our lives?
As I look at the folks I considered so important to my everyday…
Today, the cast of characters is virtually a new one.
So many of the people we profess to be in our ride or die…have, well…died
I realize and live by the reason-season-lifetime rule, but damn…
Silly isn’t it?
We don’t really KNOW-KNOW who those lifetime folks will really be…well, until we realize they’re still standing there…by our side
I sometimes drift into a soft warm smile…tears well-up in my eyes…remembering the friends…the ones who probably would be here if they could…but they can’t
Silly isn’t it?
How a milestone birthday will have you getting mushy and shit?
Silly isn’t it?
How you’ll force yourself to have those flashback moments that only happen when you face your mortality…the proverbial near-miss that has you reminiscing
I’m officially missing the memories left behind by those that played such an important role in my life.
I’m officially missing the me at previous stages in my life
Silly isn’t it?
I’m officially missing me

On Blast
Have you ever missed you?

Keep passin' the open windows...

Manopause is horrendous from what I hear...

Just don't be buying no expensive ass red convertible to accompany the throes of the mid life crisis you are about to dive head first into...

"Gimme the honey"

Maybe we can go see "17 Again" when you're feeling your present self : ) You know I love you. So many of us do.

I sure have.

Your post was really heartfelt.

I have always loved that particular performance from Tamia! She sounds even better singing it live than on the cd.
