Is That All There Is?

(Spoken)
I remember when I was a very little girl, our house caught on fire.
I’ll never forget the look on my father’s face as he gathered me up
in his arms and raced through the burning building out to the pavement.
I stood there shivering in my pyjamas and watched the whole world up in flames.
And when it was all over, I said to myself; “Is there all there is to a fire?”

(Sung)
Is that all there is, is that all there is
Is that all there is my friends, then let’s keep dancing
Let’s break out the booze and have a ball
Is that all there is.

(Spoken)
And when I was 12 years old, my father took me to a circus, the greatest show on earth.
There were clowns and elephants and dancing bears.
And a beautiful lady in pink tights flew high above our heads.
And so I sat there watching the marvelous spectacle.
I had the feeling that something was missing.
I don’t know what, but when it was over,
I said to myself, “Is that all there is to a circus?”

(Sung)
Is that all there is, is that all there is
If that is all there is, then let’s keep dancing
Let’s break out the booze and have a ball
If that is all there is.

I love this song, “Is That All There Is?” by Peggy Lee.

But I am not disillusioned with life. Neither am I disappointed with the negative events that has occur in my life. Indeed, after an unpleasant encounter, there is always a tendency that we express our sadness and disappointments. But, don’t you think each is a also a very wonderful lesson and never to repeat it again?

I reckon, each is a blessing in disguise. As, it is a matter of time, we will see and hear the real stuff in each of this encounter.

Is that all there is?

You see, from hindsight, I have learnt to be thankful for all that has happened to me. I am both grateful and thankful for all the wonderful lessons life had taught me. You know why? It has made my life so rich with experience, so ………………………………… and so much to share with others.

(Spoken)
Then I fell in love, head over heels in love, with the most wonderful boy in the world.
We would take long walks by the river or just sit for hours gazing into each other’s eyes.
We were so very much in love.
Then one day he went away and I thought I’d die, but I didn’t
and when I didn’t I said to myself; “Is that all there is to love?”

(Sung)
Is that all there is, is that all there is
Is that all there is my friends, then let’s keep dancing.

(Spoken)
I know what you must be saying to yourself
if that’s the way she feels about it why doesn’t she just end it all?
Oh, no, not me. I’m in no hurry for that final disappointment
for I know just as well as I’m standing here talking to you’
when that final moment comes and I’m breathing my last breadth, I’ll be saying to myself

(Sung)
Is that all there is, is that all there is
Is that all there is my friends, then let’s keep dancing
Let’s break out the booze and have a ball
If that all there is.
