In Remembrance

24905_All Saint’s Day ~ El Día de Muertos ~ The Day of the Dead ~ is a day of remembrance for those who have passed ~ for those who etch themselves on our hearts, never to be forgotten.  Today I honor them all and I hope you will give a moment to honor your loved ones who have passed as well.  Just for a moment, be grateful for having had the chance to know them.  Blessings don’t always come wrapped up in a pretty bow.  Sometimes it takes awhile to know what was a blessing.  ♥

There are places I remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
And 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 love 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 ever 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

Songwriters:  John Lennon/Paul McCartney, sung by Bette Midler
