♥ Midnight Love ♥

It's been a quite period of time
When I couldn't feel you're alive.
Your existence became a question
Like I've been out of your life.

I couldn't let this time to pass
When I can talk to you about our past.
So many things to say
Yet my mouth cannot convey.

It feels like a mystery 
Because it is still - YOU
That I can't dismiss
Maybe it is still you
Who I cannot neglect.

Tonight I feel loved
I feel sheltered by you.
And I hope it will continue
That you and I still intertwined.

I always look forward to this night
For your appearance before my eyes
Please hear my wishful heart
To be with you this time.

I have this feeling when the sun arrives
You will disappear in my sight.
Like the daylight is my foe
Because you will leave without a goodbye.

The moonlight is my way to you
The night is our chance to escape
If I could just talk to the moon
And tell him not to depart.

I guess this is the only thing we have
Midnight is our precious time
I will wait and wait
For this once in a blue moon love.

Bend, but don't break


There are times that we will fall
We can break into pieces
And no one will know
There are times that we will cry
To stop is hard to try
Sometimes when we’re trouble
We feel lost and we tremble

Sometimes we just want to hide
And escape all the lies
All the pain, the hurt and anger we have
We do things just to cover what’s inside.

We sometimes turn around
Choose a wrong turn
That will make us different
And feel like there’s no turning back

Yes we will fall, and we will be lost
But all you need is to be strong
Stand up, and fight
‘Cause everything will be alright

Life is unfair, yes my dear
Everyone knows, which I think
It makes it fair to all
That is the wonder of what we call – Life.

Fall but after, stand tall
Get lost but find your way
Be mad but don’t be bad
Struggle but still mingle
Leave but still live
Cry but always try

Yes, bend but don’t break
Someone will help you up
He’ll catch you and take
All the weary that you carry
He is there and he’ll tell you
That dear, this is the WAY.

I just can't get enough ♥

I'm still on high because of the homily last Sunday. I feel so different and so good. That Sunday really made me felt that, "Hey, it's February and it's the LOVE month". It made me welcome this month with a big smile and a big heart. I want to share beautiful passages that touched my heart. Warning: you will see a lotttttttttttttt of loooovveee in this entry. ^-^


Jeremiah 1:4-5

     The word of the Lord came to me, saying: "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you. A prophet to the nations I appointed you."

- I learned that you can love anybody. You can a love a stranger that you can meet anywhere at anytime. And if ever you will feel so empty and unloved, there is someone up there who really loved you even before you were born. 


1 Corinthians 12:31-13:13

Now eagerly desire the greater gifts.
And yet I will show you the most excellent way.

If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

- Everything will be useless without LOVE. I learned that even we do good acts to others but if we don't have an open and giving heart, everything will be worthless. They will not matter to HIM if we don't do it with LOVE. 


Luke 4;21, 24-27

He began by saying to them, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”

“Truly I tell you,” he continued, “no prophet is accepted in his hometown. 25 I assure you that there were many widows in Israel in Elijah’s time, when the sky was shut for three and a half years and there was a severe famine throughout the land. 26 Yet Elijah was not sent to any of them, but to a widow in Zarephath in the region of Sidon. 27 And there were many in Israel with leprosy[a] in the time of Elisha the prophet, yet not one of them was cleansed—only Naaman the Syrian.”

- In this passage, I learned that when you love someone, you learn how to be selfless. You can sacrifice anything for someone you cherish the most. I learned that the solution for anger is LOVE. There will be no doubt and fear when you LOVE. ACCEPTANCE comes along with this four letter word; when we love someone, we accept who that person is...no matter what and who he/she is. 

“One word
Frees us of all the weight and pain of life:
That word is love.” 
― Sophocles
