Oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides,
Can I handle the seasons of my life?

Oh, I don’t know.

Well I’ve been afraid of changing,
‘Cause I’ve built my life around you.
But time makes you bolder, even children get older,
And I’m getting older too.

Take my love, take it down
I climbed a mountain and I turned around…
And if you see my reflection in the snow-covered hills,
Well the landslide’ll bring it down.


My Dad really loved the song “Landslide,” written by Stevie Nicks. We played it during the slideshow at his funeral, and even my little niece knew it. She said, “This is Pop-pop’s favorite song.” I have memories of hearing him hum it in the next room, in the car, on a walk. Sometimes I sing it now, at the top of my lungs, and I hope he hears me.
