I’ve been thinking all day of Eric Mumaw, and of Dylan’s “Forever Young.”

I have been thinking of Nashville Police Officer Eric Mumaw all day — and knowing that he will be forever young. These lyrics are parts of Bob Dylan’s timeless classic, “Forever Young,” from his 1974 album Planet Waves. I will listen to the song tomorrow.

May you build a ladder to the stars
 And climb on every rung
 May you stay forever young

May you always be courageous
 Stand upright and be strong
 May you stay forever young

May your heart always be joyful
 May your song always be sung
 May you stay forever young
