As I contemplate my 30th anniversary...

Recommended Posts

Being married to the love of my life for well over half my years, I was reminded this morning on the way to work what meaningful relationships are all about. I popped in an album that I hadn't listened to in years. It's one of my favorites, and I don't like to listen to it too often because there are parts that will reduce me to tears at inconvenient moments (like at 65 mph in heavy traffic).

Anyhow, I share with you the lyrics from All The World by Kansas, copyright 1975 (Steve Walsh and Robbie Steinhardt):

All the world's forgiving, the change is all around

And people everywhere have seen the light in what they've found

It's a happy place in the human race

When all our lives are lived forgiving

All the world's for living when love is what you find

Despair and loneliness, you've got to leave them far behind

Tell the clouds to go, let the feeling show

It's great when your life is full of living

Everyone's aware

They know to change the world we've got to care

And people all should know, should have happened long ago

Or could it be that I just now found out

Life is meant to share

And it means the same thing everywhere

Living everyday, helping people on their way

'Cause sometimes life gives everyone some doubts

Can I have time? Is it right what I feel?

At times I doubt what I normally know is real

But right now I don't know what to do and it's all because of you

I could tell you if I knew that you'd believe

As slight and elusive as life sometimes is

Right or wrong as we both know we all can be

I could never have denied that I need you by my side

'Cause without you life don't seem that much to me

I can see an old man cry, it's his time to die

And life no longer gives him any breaks

He hasn't got a home, no one to call his own

Still he tells no one that it is more than he can take

Till the time is so unkind, an empty future plays in your mind

When the darkness cries out to you

Can you escape it? What can you do?

Oh, what can you do?

All the world's forgetting the hate that filled our hearts

The times of selfish reasoning that keeps us all apart

This world was meant to share, let them know you care

By making someone's life worth living

All the world's believing that this feeling's got to stay

Till all the world is living

Till all the world is giving

Till all the world is loving every day
