The Song

Driving home Sunday night I passed two couples wrapped in passionate embraces in the space of a block… a sure sign that spring has finally arrived… And it got me thinking about “The Song”… You know… the one that was always played at or near the end of every party… where people coupled up in an awkwardly hopeful way… with the innocence of youth.
For us it was Stairway to Heaven… and when I heard it on the radio Sunday it took me back… back to the time of slow dances, shy glances and close embraces… memories that to this day you can feel, you can hear and you can taste… and decision time lay ahead with Jimmy Page’s guitar solo… would you break apart into a faster dance or would you stay wrapped together, holding tight in the moment, not fearful of what tomorrow might bring, but only able to think about right now… right now… right now… Our song, our memories, our lives…
