Mother Goose will always have Paris….

“As Time Goes By”

You must remember this
A kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh.
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by.

And when two lovers woo
They still say, “I love you.”
On that you can rely
No matter what the future brings
As time goes by.

Moonlight and love songs
Never out of date.
Hearts full of passion
Jealousy and hate.
Woman needs man
And man must have his mate
That no one can deny.

It’s still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die.
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by.

Oh yes, the world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by.

Oh my dear, how Mother Goose loves this old song…it seems the further down the road I go, the more I love “As Time Goes By”. This is not to say that Mother Goose is aging — only that the song grows more and more precious.

Who can forget the story of Rick and Ilsa in Casablanca? Will she stay with Rick in Casablanca or fly away with Victor Laszlo? Should she do the right thing or follow her heart? Or is following her heart ALWAYS the right thing?

Oh the romance, oh the love, oh my heart just goes pitter patter to remember them in Paris…

And here’s a photo caption contest that Mother Goose won this week over at Discover the Forest (on Facebook).

"We'll always have Paris..."

    I’m sorry to say I’ve never seen Casablanca. But I really love the squirrels and caption. Teehee!

      Thanks dear…the song just triggers something inside me — I guess the bittersweet universality of love. We each think that our own loves are the most real and the most unique, but as time goes by, we see that others have their own love precious love that comes with its own personal angst…

      And, of course, squirrels also experience this…

    Believe it or not, I’ve never seen that movie. Perhaps we should rent it for Valentine’s Day…??

    Debra, thank you so much. Caption contests are such a fun way to be clever… all about the short and the pithy.
