Shirley, Barry, My Mom…and The Time

January 28, 2020

Pastor Harvey and I were at Shirley Mae McCommis’ funeral when I heard a song that was new to me, sung by Barry Manilow. The lyrics are worth your time today —

“Where Does The Time Go?”

Oh, what a time
What a warm an wonderous time
So sweet a shinning moment in the sun
Oh, what a time
Was there ever such a time?
Then suddenly it’s done
The moment passes

Where, where does the time go,
Must we let it end?
Where, where does the time go?
Gone too soon my friend
And where, where go the echoes
Of our laughter ringing the air?

Oh, where ever the time goes,
I will see you there!
Must we let it end?
And where, where go the echoes
Of our laughter ringing the air?
Oh,where ever the time goes
I will see you there
I will see you there!

— Mercy.

And I can still hear my mom telling me to “Enjoy every moment.”

Increasingly, I understand what she meant.
