I have just enjoyed reading a post by Retiree Diary on Yesterday When I was Young. I am re-posting here to share the beautiful and haunting song by Charles Azvenour. Please go check out the post by Michael and read the full lyrics there.
“Yesterday when I was young There were so many songs that waited to be sung, So many wild pleasures that lay in store for me And so much pain my dazzled eyes refused to see, I ran so fast that time and youth at last ran out and I never stopped to think what life was all about, And every conversation that I can recall Concerned itself with me, and nothing else at all.”
Hier Encour by Charles Aznavour
How true the words of this song. How many times have I thought of only myself when I was young and unaware? How many times have I teased a candle flame?
May you learn your lessons well and only repeat your mistakes but once!
