I came across this beautiful song ‘Love in a photograph’ by Ed Sheeran from the movie ‘Me before you’ (suggested as a must watch by a very dear friend) and for the first time when I heard the lyrics very closely, my heart was captivated by the below lines:
So you can keep me
Inside the pocket of your ripped jeans
Holding me closer ’til our eyes meet
You won’t ever be alone…
Don’t we all cherish small tokens of love, that we can see every day and which reminds us of the people we love? These tokens can be anything from a picture, a keychain, a coffee mug, a pair of headphones, a bag, a wallet, a watch, a pen, a diary, a dried flower, an email, a tee shirt, a fragrance.. What really matters is the cherished memories with the person who you remember each time you have it close to you.
People say that things don’t matter. Well, I would disagree… Things matter when the people and memories behind them do 🙂
