It's Donne!

I found this treasure today. My friend took John Donne's The Good -Morrow and turned it into beautiful modern words. Listen...

I wonder my love, what you and I did till we fell in love? Were we children? Did we play childishly? Or did we party up a storm? It was like this, but these were all temporary pleasures. If I ever saw any beauty, which I desired, and got, was a dream of you.

And now good day to our waking souls, which aren't afraid of love, because love, love turned every little room into an everywhere. Let sea explorers go to new worlds, let maps showing other worlds, show them, but let us possess one world, our own, where I am half of it and you, another

My face in your eye appears and yours in mine as well, and true plain hearts rest in each other's faces. Where can we find two better hemispheres that are better suited? Whatever differences we have, if we have the same love or even if we love so alike that if not one of us slacken in love, not one of our loves can die.

So there I was;In the shower, music in the background, minding my own business when the opening rift came drifting to my ears and I couldn't skip it as I usually do. I had to listen... It made me sad....

There was a time when I loved that song. The chord progression and the singer's rough voice got me everytime. But I'd made memories to it now, memories I can never have again. Hearing that song was a reminder of that. Then it occurred to me how much we miss out on. I'd been missing out on good music because it hurts to go back there. How much more have I been missing out on because I havn't been brave enough to go through the pain and get to the other side?

But this is life. It is beautiful, excrutiating, exciting, dangerous. If we only experience the goodness in life, can we really say we've lived it to the full? So I say embrace it all even though we want only the good. Take the bad too, feel it and then move on to better things. Goodness knows that those better things would not feel better if it were not for the bad things.
