Both Sides Now — for Joni

Both Sides Now – adapted from Joni Mitchell’s song.

Do I really know life at all?
I thought I did when I was small
Then seasons changed and years rolled by
I met the Moon, the Stars, the Sky
So Vast, so stunning, infinite delight
Shone from afar in the dark of night
To see beyond the Milky Way
To visit lands unknown this day
It’s life’s illusions I now recall
Do I really know life at all?
And now past friends may look at me
And truly what do they really see
An old but wiser prophecy
From once a naive melody
Comes a song from a heartbeat intrinsically
Born of a deep maturity
Evolved, alive —Enlightenment
A beauty bloomed from sad intent

It’s life’s illusions I now recall
Do I really know life at all?
—Sue Girard
