Music is the collision of the poet’s heart with the melody of a beautiful instrument and it has the ability to make us lost in our world. Sometimes it brings joy, other times sadness, and moments of reflection. It is rare for a particular individual not to like any music. We may have our preferences and dislike particular genres but I have never heard anyone declare “I hate music!”
If anyone did declare this then I would have to walk away immediately before giving them a very long sigh, eye roll, and a very hard smack on the forehead. However, if you gaze at your music collection I bet there is always one or two songs of unrequited love. The one song about the love that got away and the magic formula of what if still lingers in the heart.
The mystery of the lost love has always been intriguing as you remember them as who they once were and an idea with how they may have grown older. In the past it would be only gathering tidbits of from mutual acquaintances or bumping into one another on that crowded street. It is the romantic idea that the love once had been there to be taken once again through the mere thought of coincidence. The destiny of two lovers torn apart from the wild dramas of youth only to meet again older and wiser unwilling to make the same mistakes twice.
Bob Dylan’s If You See Her, Say Hello is one of those songs that sometimes we have to let go and move forward with the magic of knowing they are out there somewhere. Somethings change, evolve, but the memory of that one lost love is still there with the hope that they would come back into our hearts.
The romantic idea when musing over a drink and taken back into a different time. A time that can never be repeated but moving forward that life has other plans. One where you can wonder where that person is today and choose to glance at their Facebook profile or leave it in the past with the distant memories. So when you listen to that one song it is a reminder that love never dies but evolves into a memory of what once was leading into a new chapter of your life.
