*NEW* Forever Young

Once again, the words of a Bob Dylan song have turned up in one of my samplers. A meaningful wish for others to live a blessed life, but even more, the words are me hoping that regardless of life’s trials, you will keep a young spirit fresh within. Released on his 1974 album, Planet Waves, the original lyrics are:

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

Love this and will order it right away. I would listen to this song over and over at one time in my life when I was away from my children. Made me cry every time. This sampler will remind of that time, in a bittersweet way. But thats how life often is, the bitter mixed with the sweet.
