Moondust and Good-byes

" target="_blank">
All elementary schools closed for summer vacation this week.  There were also many graduations for kids going on to middle school, high school and beyond.  My piano lessons also ended recently.  There has always been something very bittersweet about this time of year.  It's the exciting start of summer, but the end of some friendships and the comforts of familiar surroundings.  The same applies to the end of summer, when kids say good-bye to their newly forged friendships from camp or other summer activities.

Moondust and Good-byes

friends forever

As always, I'm reminded of the past.  There is a very sweet song from the 1979 cult classic "Meatballs".  It can be heard near the end of the film when the campers say good-bye to each other.
"Moondust" Music by Elmer Bernstein, lyrics by Norman Gimbel, and performed by Canadian crooner Terry Black was influenced by "Stardust" written by Hoagy Carmichael with lyrics added in 1929 by Mitchell Parish.  Enjoy...
Let’s say it was the moondustThat drifted down from heavenTo fall upon your shouldersAnd nestle in your eyes
Let's say it was the moondust
With all its ancient powers
Much more than any mortal
Ever could devise

And it made me love you
And it made me never want to go away
And it made me helpless
And it made me always wanna stay that way

Let’s say it was the moondustThat hides behind the moonlightThat fell and set us freeWith its moondust melodyAnd it made me love youAnd it made me never want to go awayAnd it made me helplessAnd it made me always wanna stay that way
Let’s say it was the moondustThat hides behind the moonlightThat fell and set us freeWith its moondust melodyAnd set us freeWith its moondust melody
