Lyric Lover, IV

It's that time of the year when radio stations pull out songs from the past, like Dan Fogelberg's Same Old Lang Syne (1980). On my way back from the grocery store the other day, I heard it. I always turn the music up and think about the poetry behind these lyrics because way back in high school, we studied this song.

As I've aged, I've learned that I can be sentimental about anything, and that I can apply lyrics or situations to my life, whether or not I've lived them. Between the high school memories and my penchant for crying, I found a few tears sprinkling my face once again on that ride back from the store.

I completely agree with your statement, 'I can be sentimental about anything.'
