Now and forever, you are a part of me
And the memory cuts like a knife
Didn't we find the ecstasy, didn't we share the daylight
When you walked into my life

Now and forever, I'll remember
All the promises still unbroken
And think about all the words between us
That never needed to be spoken

We had a moment, just one moment
That will last beyond a dream, beyond a lifetime
We are the lucky ones
Some people never get to do all we got to do
Now and forever, I will always think of you

Didn't we come together, didn't we live together
Didn't we cry together
Didn't we play together, didn't we love together
And together we lit up the world

I miss the tears, I miss the laughter
I miss the day we met and all that followed after
Sometimes I wish I could always be with you
The way we used to do
Now and forever, I will always think of you
Now and forever, I will always be with you

    To me, this song is for my children. The best big brother & little sister, ever... Living together, crying together, playing together & loving one another through it all. Taking the good with the bad & the contentment with the frustration, relying on the love of their sibling every day, every minute. It's a magical time- that can't last. It must change & it will change as they grow. We will always have this time in our hearts & benefit from it forever. I am truly a better person because of their relationship & i am the one lucky be a part of such a closeness.

    This song is about two people who are in love. They are both married and realize that consumating that love will only destroy the ecstacty that they have because they both know at the "end of the day" they will go home to their spouses. It is a love that lasts beyond a life time. I am one of those lucky ones. Always... Now and forever - me.

    This song always makes me think of the one i let get away. The one who will always hold a very special place in my heart. Maybe one day it will have a happy ending, but even not... The memories will always make me smile.

    With my class graduation coming up, i've never really been thinking about leaving all my friends who've i've grown up with since preschool. I've been preoccupied with other "important" things. But this song made me realize just how much they mean to me. And that when i get mad and say i can't wait to leave them... I will never mean it. We were special. We were together. Thats a lot to say for just a class, but 15 of us together for 10 years is a lot. This song has the exact discription of our friendships. :)

    We never spoke of our love, it just existed. We shared more in a few years than most do in a lifetime. Now he is gone, but our love lasts forever. He was my true love. Once in a life time love. Always... Now and forever i will always think of you...
