(I honestly was dreading writing today.  But this song, albeit brief, struck so hard that thus entry was easy.  Thank you, Mela.  Day 177…)

And I just want to make you feel the way the music makes me feel.  And I’m hoping that you will allow me to introduce myself…

If you give me just a little time
I won’t be able to return it
But I’ll exchange those moments you can’t get back
For one’s you’ll never forget

Maybe you’ll remember me
Maybe you’ll remember yourself
Whomever you meet for the first time
Be sure to extend your soul
In a formal introduction

Let me
Show you how to illuminate your own path
Heart and rib
Are lantern and cage
Once the spark ignites.
Trust me, your spirit glows in the dark, too.
