"He who forgets, will be destined to remember..."

The Spill Canvas - The Tide

Song of the day.

And there’s three—count ‘em—three children playing on the beach.
They were eager to learn, to be taught, and to teach.
There’s Veronica: she’s biting her lip as she watches the waves turn white at the tip..
And there’s Vada: radiating with joy and luckily she still can’t stand the sight of a boy.
And lastly there’s Dave: his hair dances in the wind and he’s wondering where the love is, and why it has to end.

And he can’t understand how everyone goes on breathing when true love ends… his mother whispers quietly:

Heaven’s not a place that you go when you die—it’s that moment in life when you actually feel alive.. So live for the moment.
And take this advice—live by every word: love is just a hoax so forget everything that you have heard.

And there’s three—count ‘em—three children growing on the beach..
They were eager to learn, to be taught, and to teach.
There’s Veronica: she’s licking her lips as she waits for her real first passionate kiss.
And there’s Vada: she can’t admit her jealousy of her sister, Veronica, and how she’s so pretty stand the sight of a boy.
And lastly there’s Dave: his hair dances in the wind and he’s wondering where the love is, and why it has to end.

And there’s three—count ‘em—three children missing from the beach..
They were eager to learn, to be taught, and to teach.

But the sad thing is that they never lived past the age of 15, due to neglect from their mother who was bedridden by her ex-lover—their father.

And she didn’t even notice or pay much attention as the tide came in and swept her three into the ocean..
Now all her advice, it seems useless..

No heaven’s not a place that you go when you die,
it’s that moment in life when you touch her and you feel alive…
So live for the moment
And take this advice—live by every word—love’s completely real, so forget anything that you have heard, and live for the moment now.
