Seasons Of Love

So many years ago a great man tough me a song called " Seasons of Love", I fell in love with the song and it 's meaning. well a week ago I got to sing it one more time with dear close friends to celebrate his life and the wonderful things he showed us. And this got me to thinking about Iraq and me listen to this song so much that my roommate would groan when she would hear it.

I grew a deeper love for the song when i was deployed in Iraq. My job had me on the roads all night and sometimes half the day. Trying to spot IEDs and people trying to hurt or even kill us. I spent lots of hours thinking and wondering " If I do die here, what would be say and remember about me?", I could not come up with much but then again i was looking at form my side. But here I am with a chance to make great memories with my son, reconnecting with old friends that i have found out cared about me very much, and a chance to be the person I want to be.

I don't want to be remembered for my failures in life I want people to remember all the great laughs, tears, and time spent with me. I want MY son to always remember how strong, loving and caring of a person I am. I want the next man (if there is one) to love me for me and not waste time trying to change me, make loving memories with him. I want to enjoy life the best I can with my son beside me and who ever else wants to join us.
I want my life measured in LOVE, Laughter, and good time. i posted the us singing "seasons of love " one more time
