Bookends 书夹

  Introduction

  Yes, as noted in the previous song, taking care of a baby is the most precious and important task that a human can have. Is it any wonder that many grandparents can play for hours with children, and also greatly enjoy the time they spend with their own grandchildren? As you approach the end of your life on the planet Earth, will you have some complaints about not having made more money? Or will you express regret about not having spent more time with your children, grandchildren, wife or husband?

  Some men spend many years chasing after women. As old men, these individuals often moan and complain about how foolish they were. A few even ask themselves, “Why did I choose to waste all that time, energy and money that could have been far better spent on my family?”Women who are not faithful to their husbands ultimately face similar unanswered questions about their own silliness. Will you avoid the need to ask and answer such painful questions?

  Is it a worthy goal to have no major regrets and be proud of the choices you have made? If life is a test that consists of choices, how comfortable will you be with the grade you give yourself prior to your last breath? Is this the end? If so, one question remains. How many songs can I take to heaven?

  Time it was,

  And what a time it was, it was…

  A time of innocence,

  A time of confidences.

  Long ago it must be,

  I have a photograph.

  Preserve your memories,

  They're all that's left you.
