🌹 Memorial Day 🌹


In a world marred by war and terrorism, please enjoy a beautiful song today.

Doesn’t have to be this one, of course…but…. 😎

This song is typically considered a love ballad. But today I find the anthematic riffs in this song somehow comforting.

To me, love and freedom are mostly the exact same thing.

This may only make sense in my head, but if you think about it, every lyric in this song talks about freedom….the freedom to do anything this song says at any given time. That’s a pretty powerful message for me, today.

I’m sending this out to not only the US troops, but all of the friendly troops out there in the world who’ve given of themselves unselfishly to protect our Freedoms and who’ve honorably fought for world peace.


Thank you so very much for your service,
Ladies and gentlemen, of our armed forces.
My freedom is
“Here…[reflected] in your perfect eyes.
And your grace reminds me to find my own.”

A small prayer for my friend, SSG Craig Hendricks, as well (1975 – 2011). Godspeed, love. You were the sun, the moon, and all those stars put together. You’re here, I know you are. ❦

We’ll do it all

Everything
On our own

We don’t need
Anything
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me
And just forget the world?

I don’t quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
They’re not enough

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me
And just forget the world?

Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden
That’s bursting into life

Let’s waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads

I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me
And just forget the world?

All that I am

All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes
They’re all I can see

I don’t know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things
Will never change for us at all

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me
And just forget the world?

  1. That’s the beautiful thing about music. YOU can interpret however you like. I see your interpretation.
    “Show me a garden
    That’s bursting into life”
    Wouldn’t a world without war look much like this? Love you, sweet one. Your mind is a treat.❤︎

    1. I thought the same thing. And the music sounds like a marching band to which makes me think army, freedom. I here it! I can imagine you lying in a field of green grass, under the clouds, your version of freedom, lovely sis. Very deep. 💙

  2. From you, k, somehow this makes sense. Godspeed, indeed. Beautiful tribute. ❤️

    1. Aw, I’m deeply touched, M. Thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart (or the heart of my bottom, whichever you prefer to fathom). 😉 💙

  3. Chasing Cars is one of my favorite songs and reminded me too of an old friend who was in the Navy. Sorry for your loss – they are always in our hearts ♥️

    1. Hi, Bel! Thanks for stopping in. It’s been a while! :o)) Happy to see you. That’s true, they do stay there….Wishing you a beautiful Memorial Day!

  4. As Jason points out, it is interesting to see how different meanings people can attach to a song. When we were little, my cousin David and I used to always chase the car as our families left from a visit to one of our homes. For me the song is about memories and the coming of age.

    But now with your vision of it, K, I’m enjoying it from a different perspective. Thanks for sharing. And, yes, thanks too to the many who have given their lives in the name of freedom. – Marty

  5. kinda teared up, young lady. the song, the tribute, your message from it. I’ll always associate this song with you from here on out. ❤︎❤︎❤︎

  6. well now you got me all choked up, missy! and i have to be at dinner soon! have fun tonight. a toast to Craig, angelheart. he is definitely around you….you both were blessed to have what you did. keep it with you always and draw from it. my heart aches for your loss, beauty. ❤️

    1. Aw, thanks, mitch. I appreciate that. A small part of today is for him, but mostly for the rest of the world who’s been affected by the war, terrorism, and conflict. The angels are swirling today, I feel it. There is love in the air! 🌹

      Be safe tonight, sis. x

    1. Good morning, you. Hope you have a wonderful day. And I’m beyond touched that you always seem to find the time for me. You make all this worth it, truly. 💖
