When Adam and I started dating, we had a song. And it was These Are The Days by Van Morrison. Even though we’d met circa 2001, when the song had been on the scene for some time, we’d screened the movie 9 Months on one of our many date nights in. And just like that, the song was ours. And it still is. And to this day, every time I hear it, I am transported back to a time of crazy, young love.
When we got married, we had a song. And it was Feels Like Home by Chantal Kreviazuk. I had first heard it on the Dawson’s Creek soundtrack. And I loved to serenade Adam with the words. And so we danced to it. On the day that we made forever official. And it was ours. And it still is. And every time I hear it. Or sing it to the kids at bedtime. I am taken back to a day that seems like yesterday. And yet. Like a lifetime of yesterdays have come and gone.
These songs are only few in the many that are nestled deep within me and reveal what we’ve lived and are living. My connection to these songs, to these lyrics, is so much more than the songs themselves. But really about what they made me feel. And what they meant to our moments. They are our soundtrack of your songs. And I can only imagine that our soundtrack will continue to grow. And the songs of the long agos will never fade. But I believe will play in our hearts. Until our time is through. Because these are our days.
