I was at the gym yesterday when the Garth Brooks song, The Dance came on my ipod. I always like that song and really haven't listened to or paid attention to the lyrics since Scott died. Yesterday it comes on and I'm singing along with it while on the ellipitical and I started really listening to the lyrics. When I did I realized that I can very much relate to the lyrics on a much deeper level now and of course I started getting teary eyed in the middle of the gym. No matter the pain I have of losing Scott I at least had those few days with him to love him, hold him, and hug him. For those of you who don't know the song the lyrics are below:
Looking backOn the memory ofThe dance we shared'Neath the stars aboveFor a momentAll the world was rightHow could I have knownThat you'd ever say goodbye
And nowI'm glad I didn't knowThe way it all would endThe way it all would goOur livesAre better left to chanceI could have missed the painBut I'd have had to missThe dance
Holding youI held everythingFor a momentWasn't I a kingBut if I'd only knownHow the king would fallHey who's to sayYou know I might have changed it all
This is beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing it with us and for sharing Scott with us through your words, your feelings, your compassion.
No words...just love. Thank you.
So true!! I think of that song when I think of many things that I would've changed about my life. It took the good and the bad to make things the way they are now. I could change the bad, but that would've definitely changed the good too. Hugs!
