When the World Stops Turning.

There are times in our lives where an event warps our perception and the world stands still. The Space Shuttle explosions, the World Trade Center atrocity, Pearl Harbor, the passing of a parent, a brother, a friend.
Last night I arrived back home but was too tired to go to the hospital to see my friend Jeff. This morning in the hospital parking lot the World has ceased to turn.

Someone gave me an MP3 player when I was in Florida filled with a mix of songs, Some I do not know the artist. This is the lyric playing in my ear. Not a random tune...

Shadows have fallen and I'm runnin' out of breath.
Keep me in your heart for awhile.
If I leave you it doesn't mean I love you any less.
Keep me in your heart for awhile.
When you get up in the morning and you see that crazy sun.
Keep me in your heart for awhile.
There's a train leavin' nightly called when all is said and done.
Keep me in your heart for awhile.
Sometimes when you're doing something simple 'round the house mayb you'll think of me and smile.
You know I'm tied to you like the buttons on your blouse.
Keep me your heart for awhile.
Hold me in your thoughts,
take me to your dreams,
touch me as I fall into view.
And when the winter comes, keep the fires lit, and I will be right next to you.
Engine drivers' headed north to Pleasant Stream,
Keep me in your heart for awhile.
These wheels keep turnin',
but there runnin' out of steam.
Keep me in your heart for awhile...
