Strangers, Again

This had been a familiar post in Facebook recently. But since I thought that this was just a music video for the old love song, Strangers Again (or was it the title?), I did not bother watching it. So when my sister told me that it is actually a short film about the stages a romantic relationship goes through, I decided to watch it for myself.

And I found it interesting and that there's somehow truth in it. Well, it may not be true for all. Others would argue, others would relate well to it and might even evaluate their own relationships according to the stages presented in the film, and some others wouldn't care. It could be an eye-opener for those who are in a relationship or it could make those love hopefuls think otherwise. Either way goes. As for me, it's interesting but I could not relate to it. Hmm. Or maybe not just yet. 


Love Notes.

I know it's way past February and it will be a couple of months more before the next February comes, but that doesn't mean that I couldn't share these simple love notes. love! love! love!

i love to lean on his shoulders.
i love it when he whispers in my ear.
i love to squeeze his hands.
i love to brush my nose against his cheeks.
i love the way he makes me feel.
i love him.

don't ever think that you don't mean anything to me. because you do. you mean a lot to me.
don't ever think that i am not happy with you. because i am. you make me smile. you make me laugh. you make me happy.
don't ever think that i'd leave you for another guy. because i won't. i won't let go of your hand. i'm yours.
and don't ever think that i don't love you. because i do. i really do.


Gone Too Soon.

Recently, I have been hearing of sudden deaths of people at such a young age. A batchmate died last month, yesterday a young actor died in an accident, and just today, i learned from my friend's Facebook page that a schoolmate (just a year ahead of us) died. And it dawned on me, life is indeed short and death knows no age.

And i wonder.. What were their last words? Did they hear trumpets calling them shortly before they had their last breath? Did they see angels about to take them away? Were those who went ahead of us felt happy and fulfilled with their lives? If we all have a mission here on earth, were they able to carry it out? 

Indeed, we do not know when our borrowed time is due. It could be tomorrow, next month, next year, or we could be lucky to have a lot more years ahead of us. But since it is something that we are unsure of, i guess we just have to make the most of every day that is given to us. We have to spend it wisely, using time in productive ways. Spend time developing talents, nourishing relationships, helping others, doing what is right (in the eyes of The One above), and fulfilling our so-called mission or calling, whatever it may be. 

I hope there won't be news of young deaths anymore. Neither of timely deaths. It would be better to see people living happy and contented lives, pleasurable to His eyes, than to see people leave without making sure that they did what they have to do while they still had the chance. 


Heaven and Hell.

my sister told me about this article  and it took me a while to really read it completely. i hope you will find this useful and life-changing. 


The Last Four Days...

were my happiest days. i got to spend time with the person i love, got to meet his family, and be with him on his graduation day. it was something i was looking forward to since last year and thank God it really did happen despite the problems that came. it was so far the longest time we spent together since march 2010. ever since i finished school and came back home, we only got to see each other every after a couple of months and we would only get to spend a day together. so four days with him was truly a blessing. 

spending the days with him really made me appreciate and love him more. we did things together, ate meals together, went to places together and had the same itinerary everyday. it's way different than just keeping each other updated of what you are doing through text messages or phone calls. 

but four days were just four days. i had to go home and we had to part ways again. the happy moments we had made parting very much painful, much more for an emotional person like me. and after a minute of not seeing him made me miss him so much already. :( 

unlike other long distance relationships, i guess what we have is something that grows much stronger as the days pass by. and i guess it's the faithfulness, the trust, the commitment, and the love that fuel our relationship and made us last until this time and will make us last until forever. 

i may have failed a lot of times in showing how much you mean to me. how important you are to me. at most times, i may have failed to show how much i love you and i'm sorry for that. but really, you mean a lot. i love you so much.
