As I sit here in the tire center of the Super Store, enjoying my lunch amongst the stacks of tires and their promises of extended life and superior traction, a song plays.
It’s a popular song from a long ago Disney movie.
It conjures memories so strong that I can nearly taste them.
I remember watching the movie with little ones hanging on me.
The memory intensifies with the telling of it.
It pleases and it hurts.
It’s worth it tonight.
It’s always worth it.
I miss you but as the song playing states, you’ll be in my heart forever.
