Window Shopping

Life – it’s a flash, a bit of dash, and then maybe it’s over before we even know it’s begun…

Ginos Ristorante -What Good Is A Window Table For One

Window Shopping
by Michael Romani

It's strange all those little things
That make up our memory
All the flashes and dashes our lives bring
Too busy to know we're living history

Window shopping down the city street
Where strangers are friends we've yet to meet
A song of life that moves on and on
That is, until that life is too soon gone

Just as suddenly, driving a country lane
Top of the convertible down despite the rain
Samhain has become All Hallow's Eve
With all the Highland charms we don't want to leave

Widespread branches in our family's tree
Require the will to build into our legacy
I dream of you when we're apart
I say 'apart' but you're always in my heart

We are different and yet the same
I suppose that's the happiness of life's game
Dusty ruins are the stuff of excavations
But also offer perspective for our expectations
