Haven't heard of John Denver?

Earlier today during our tutorial session, we talked about love. When Mdm Choong asked our opinion about love, we gave variety of answers. I answered that love is togetherness, as I think the most important thing in loving others is our willingness to stay by their side during the ups and down of their life. But it’s not this matter that kept me from feeling sleepy then.

....................


The four-letters word had actually struck my heart like hell. Few days ago, somebody told me that I’ve been living my life with too little love in my heart. I was shocked to death. I was about to say NO--when I looked at his face and I realized that he was right. Yeah it took someone with that VERY BIG influence on me to give a wakeup call of what I’ve been all this time. Whatever the person said, like always, were all correct. No doubt. I lived with too much negative thought about things. Too much dissatisfaction, too much complaint, too much doubt, too much insecurity, too afraid to love people. Yes, I was paranoid! But maybe my heart was designed that way, there’s not much for me to do, innit??

...................

but this song actually shifted my heart a bit. I could feel the joy of loving then.

Perhaps Love- John Denver
.
.
Perhaps love is like a resting place
A shelter from the storm
It exists to give you comfort
It is there to keep you warm
And in those times of trouble
When you are most alone
The memory of love will bring you home
.
.
Perhaps love is like a window
Perhaps an open door
It invites you to come closer
It wants to show you more
And even if you lose yourself
And don`t know what to do
The memory of love will see you through
.
.
Oh, love to some is like a cloud
To some as strong as steel
For some a way of living
For some a way to feel
And some say love is holding on
And some say letting go
And some say love is everything
And some say they don`t know
.
.
Perhaps love is like the ocean
Full of conflict, full of pain
Like a fire when it`s cold outside
Or thunder when it rains
If I should live forever
And all my dreams come true
My memories of love will be of you
.

At the place I am now, I mean HERE, I don’t think there is any person that I totally trust, totally love, totally share secrets with, totally rely on.I just don’t believe in anybody that easy. Oh, maybe there’s somebody here. Someone who I’ve open my door for. Somebody who I am willing to share more with. Somebody that I thank God for. Sayang kamoo, pal :)
.
.
Well I think I ought to change, for real. I should love more, kan?
