Stardust (When Our Love Was New and Each kiss an inspiration)

If you ever were in love, a hot meaningful love that brought you to the heights of passion and desire and was brought down to the depths because what was once is no more for whatever the reason then you should listen to to "Stardust" written by Hoagy Carmichael and performed by great artists such as Frank Sinatra and Nat "King" Cole. It captures the ecstasy once felt and the loss that you have to live with the rest of your life. 

Take a vacation from all the noise that is going on in our political air and the senseless atrocities happening in our world and read the lyrics, let your mind drift back to a happier time and dwell in the romantic notion that love once tasted can never really die. Then uTube it and listen to great artists perform it. Let the poetic air of true romance lift you to heights of escapism while you ponder creativity and your own life. 

And now the purple dusk of twilight time
Steals across the meadows of my heart
High up in the sky the little stars climb
Always reminding me that we're apart

You wander down the lane and far away
Leaving me a song that will not die
Love is now the stardust of yesterday
The music of the years gone by

Sometimes I wonder why I spend
The lonely night dreaming of a song
The melody haunts my reverie
And I am once again with you
When our love was new
And each kiss an inspiration
But that was long ago
Now my consolation
Is in the stardust of a song

Beside a garden wall
When stars are bright
You are in my arms
The nightingale tells his fairy tale
A paradise where roses bloom
Though I dream in vain
In my heart it will remain
My stardust melody
The memory of love's refrain
