every so often these lyrics run through my head...

There are places I remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone and some remain

All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I remember I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I’ll love you more

In my life I’ll love you more

Someone I know is falling in love. Someone I know is getting a divorce. Someone I know is having a baby. Someone I know just had a miscarriage. Someone I know just got a new job. Someone I know is being fired right now.

People love to think about when, and how, it used to be.

The other day, I over-heard a man say to another,
"oh, the old Wilkes factory? I used to work there. But when I worked there it was over on 12th Street."
Of course it was.
Everything is someplace different than it used to be.

Then there's a lot of I remember before That even,
and After That, it was never the same

Everyone on the cusp of something.

here's some recent pieces from my own cusp-filled life:

Every time I drive up to the greenhouses in the Bronx I think of Kyra as I pass the place on the road where I was when they told me she'd died. And I think about how things were better before, when she was with us. I really miss her.

I relate so much to this idea. My life is heavy with this. I'v been a romantic about it for so long, trying to bring the same feeling into the now. I don't even know if it is possible.I believe thats why im so connected to old things
