and the seasons, they go round and round...

"And the seasons they go round and round

And the painted ponies go up and down

We're captive on the carousel of time

We can't return we can only look

Behind from where we came

And go round and round and round

In the circle game "

UPDATE: I just found out yesterday that my best friend since the age of 12 lost her husband of 26 years to cancer, and I was reminded of this song. Hold your loved ones close and enjoy each moment!
