Fade Into You

Black and white photo of my face

I’ve been waxing nostalgic a lot lately. Listening to old songs from the 90s, 80s and some early 2000s music. It’s weird, to me, how a song can transport you back in time to a specific point and remind you of something that was happening then and there.

I was listening to Mazzy Star’s “Fade into you” and it made me think that eventually, I will do exactly that. After I die, which will be sooner than we might want, the memories of me and what I am and who I was will fade into your memories. Faded into your memories, perhaps as that guy from college or that guy from the swim team, and I’ll be there until you listen to a song that reminds you of me and I’ll come out from the shadows of your memory.

Or, perhaps, not at all.

No one will remember me and I’ll just fade into non-existence like so many other people that have died before me and will die after me.
