The Isley Brothers song “For The Love Of You ” is an automatic time machine for me.
The first line in the song is…’drifting on a memory, there’s no place I’d rather be than with you”….
It always transports me to another place and time.
Hypnotized by the sunlight as it glistens on the snow
my mind drifts quickly taking me to a place
I shouldn’t go
A place where the scent of honeysuckle
lingers in the warm summer night
and the room is aglow from a hundred candles light
I can feel your presence, even though you haven’t made a sound
sending shivers up and down my spine, making my heart pound
You say my name and I’m pulled with an invisible rope towards you
catching my breath in anticipation
for what we’re about to do
A melted icicle hits the house bringing me back to now,breaking the spell
as I watch my husband throw a snowball and I hear my son yell
