In my life

很久沒有彈過結他,
最近因為一些事而再次拿起。
好像每一個學木結他的人都喜歡 Beatles,
卻來來去去都是 yesterday…

假如婚禮需要一首歌,
那麼我的葬禮便是這一首:

In my life

There are places I remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I’ve loved them all
But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
In my life I love you more

雖然我從來都不懂得怎樣善待人,
但朋友對我來說是,
需要的時候要義無反顧。

假如有一天我死了,
也請你們為我奔走一次。

賣身葬自己

人死了以後,到底還能剩下甚麼,還有沒有感覺,有沒有思想?

葬禮的意義在哪裡?

古有賣身葬父,那是為了孝義。
就算沒錢,死了,也要風風光光,
甚至連活著的人的生活也不計,
也許是後人為了思念而想得太多。

不知從何時起,好像有在一點一點的變質。

變成好像是個「鬥懷念死者」的比賽,
多風光,也是給活著的人看。

老一輩都有「棺材本」,
即使自己已再沒親友,
還是想要辦個葬禮,
到底是為了什麼?

前些天,在報紙上看到,曾特首夫人有份兒辦的聖雅各福群會,有這麼一個服務:生前計劃

就是在自己還活著的一天,預先安排自己的葬禮。也要自己付自己的份,到底最後會不會變成賣身葬自己就不得而知了…
