The Book Of My Life

The Book Of My Life

Let me watch by the fire and remember my days
And it may be a trick of the firelight
But the flickering pages that trouble my sight
Is a book I’m afraid to write

It’s the book of my days, it’s the book of my life
And it’s cut like a fruit on the blade of a knife
And it’s all there to see as the section reveals
There’s some sorrow in every life

If it reads like a puzzle, a wandering maze
Then I won’t understand ’til the end of my days
I’m still forced to remember,
Remember the words of my life

There are promises broken and promises kept
Angry words that were spoken, when I should have wept
There’s a chapter of secrets, and words to confess
If I lose everything that I possess
There’s a chapter on loss and a ghost who won’t die
There’s a chapter on love where the ink’s never dry
There are sentences served in a prison I built out of lies.

Though the pages are numbered
I can’t see where they lead
For the end is a mystery no-one can read
In the book of my life

There’s a chapter on fathers a chapter on sons
There are pages of conflicts that nobody won
And the battles you lost and your bitter defeat,
There’s a page where we fail to meet

There are tales of good fortune that couldn’t be planned
There’s a chapter on god that I don’t understand
There’s a promise of Heaven and Hell but I’m damned if I see

Though the pages are numbered
I can’t see where they lead
For the end is a mystery no-one can read
In the book of my life

Now the daylight’s returning
And if one sentence is true
All these pages are burning
And all that’s left is you

Though the pages are numbered
I can’t see where they lead
For the end is a mystery no-one can read
In the book of my life

The Book of My Life‘ ~Sting~

I’ve lived long enough to have gone through quite a few chapters in my life. It seems, when I look back on it, that the longest chapters were the ones that didn’t have a lot of happiness in them, and the shorter ones do, but that could just be how it seems and in reality it’s not like that. When things have been bad it felt like it was never going to be good again. But, like I’ve always told myself, ‘this too shall pass’, and it always has. Unfortunately the good passes as well as the bad and all we’re left with is now. Right now……..and it’s not about what you’re doing at this moment, it’s keeping the mind focused on this moment in time. Yea, you still have to plan for the future and you still look back and remember…..but neither of those should consume a person. I want to be completely immersed in the moment….of course it helps that times are so great for me right now, I have a wonderful man in my life, I have incredible friends, and family….what more can I want? There’s nothing in the world that could make me happier at this moment……..well……..just a second….I need a coffee…that’ll do it!

It’s early in the current round at Cosmopolitan and **UTOPIA@DESIGN** has ‘ROBIN’ exclusive to the event! As always, they’re HUD driven with 12 presets for easy colour change, plus there’s 6 areas to customize with 10 colours, plus metals options. There’s also 5 levels of glossiness and they’re fitted for the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza mesh feet. This round of Cosmopolitan runs until September 22.

The ‘Long Sweater’ is from Tres Blah and available now at Collabor88. It’s a classic that I’ll be wearing a lot, I think.

The ‘Yumi’ hair is from [monso] and also available at C88.

As always, I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This pose is from the ‘Book Lovers’ sets of poses from Le Poppycock. The cat is included as a prop as are books, but I’m using books from the ‘Stockholm Bedroom Set’ fromm BAZAR here.

I’m perusing the books in the ‘James Joyce Library’ from KraftWork. The ‘Apple Basket’ is from Raindale.
