For Her Tireless Pursuit of the Man She Would Love - Here, There and Everywhere


Here, There and Everywhere
To lead a better life
I need my love to be here
Here, making each day of the year


Changing my life with a wave of her hand
Nobody can deny that there's something there
There, running my hands through her hair
Both of us thinking how good it can be
Someone is speaking, but she doesn't know he's there
I want her everywhere
And if she's beside me I know I need never care
But to love her is to need her
Everywhere, knowing that love is to share
Each one believing that love never dies
Watching her eyes and hoping I'm always there
I want her everywhere
And if she's beside me I know I need never care
But to love her is to need her
I will be there, and everywhere
Here, there and everywhere

To My Deeply Troubled Friend - Kahlil Gibran on Love


Kahlil Gibran - On Love When love beckons to you, follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep.
And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
And when he speaks to you believe in him,
Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.
For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you.
Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.
Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,
So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.
Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself.
He threshes you to make you naked.
He sifts you to free you from your husks.
He grinds you to whiteness.
He kneads you until you are pliant;
And then he assigns you to his sacred fire,
that you may become sacred bread for God's sacred feast.
All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart,
and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life's heart.
But if in your fear you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure,
Then is is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing-floor,
Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh,
but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears.
Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.
Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;
For love is sufficient unto love.
When you love you should not say, "God is in my heart," but rather, "I am in the heart of God."
And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.
Love has no other desire but to fulfill itself.
But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise
upon your lips. Posted by Hello

Born on the 8th day

What do Techguy, JDRockefeller and Nelson A Rockefeller have in common, they were…. Born on the 8th day of the month, you have a special gift for business, as you can conceive and plan on a grand scale. You have good executive skills and you're a good judge of values. You should try to own your own business, because you have such a strong desire to be in control. You are generally reliable when it comes to handling money; you can be trusted in this regard. Idealistic by nature, you are never too busy to spend some time on worthwhile causes, especially if managerial support are needed. There is much potential for material success associated with this number.

Star Wars Horoscope

You may whine at times, but you've developed a thick hard shell (like that of a crab). You are strong willed and persistent - until you get what you want. You never shy away from a fight, even when things get dangerous. Mentally sharp, you are starting to master the elements of mind manipulation. Star wars character you are most like: LUKE SKYWALKER

If the world stops revolving, I would spend the end with you….(from the song …IF) Part 4

Nakakabinging katahimikan, hampas lamang ng alon at ang malamig na semento ng break-water ang mga piping saksi habang nag-uusap si Dante at si Angel, sa Roxas Blvd, mga pusong nagpapa-alam sa pag-ibig na tumagal halos ng sampung tag-araw, pag-ibig na tila hindi mawawasak sa tagal ng panahon, ngunit unti-unting gumuguho dahil sa tawag ng kahirapan, alam ko kung bakit gustong sumama ni Angel sa America, kay Kanuto, dahil sa pangakong maaahon siya kahirapan sampu ng kanyang mga kapatid, ngunit nagsusumigaw ang puso ni Dante sa kapalaran ng kanyang unang pag-ibig, pag-ibig na malapit ng gumuho, alam na ni Pareng Dante na ito ang katapusan ng walang hanggan…. ..sana'y dalhin mo rin ang puso ko….. dalhin mo rin paglisan mo.

SAAN KA MAN NAROROON

Sometimes you wonder the importance of something or someone before they disappear and it always bothers me the incoming pain, suffering, loneliness,...and fear of being defeated and we must restore the inevitable...and you really wonder when it’s too late...it really made me special when i had you before...i never knew and i never felt it, how important to have one... now I'm really searching for an answer, true...i really need a damn answer....and I don't know where I will start...maybe i will just have to remind myself and wake up each morning that you are something special in my colorful past...will I risk everything just to have you back?

Sana Mapatawad Mo Ako

3 B’s in my life

B, my tatay If he should live by today, he would have been in Canada right now, If he should finished high school he would been engineer, nevertheless the engineering business he had put up, thus far exceeded my expectation as I analyzed his unschooled engg talent, If he should have not insist on me to take engineering, I should have taken law instead and I had never regret it. On the first time he saw my future wife he never like her, but when have five boys as his grandsons, my wife will be his favorite daughter in law. When he died I was staring at his coffin, and asking why God has to take him… B, my best friend He is one of my best friend I had one in years, We always ate in one plate, during night duty in central offices, Sharing poor man’s ulam and kanin We share the same dreams, My drinking buddy, my basketball buddy and we are suppose to take up golf lessons but he never made it. Although he is a nephew of a former mayor, he was poor, His last wish was to install his mother's phone in Sampaloc, I made it sure it is running before he was buried He died 5 days after my bday and I had never seen him 5 days before my bday since I was already on a vacation, my heartbreaking bday gift I ever had, When he died I was staring at his coffin, and asking why God has to take him… Baby, my childhood friend, It was 1965, this Beatles Song was a hit, Baby, was my kalaro in tumbang preso, taguan and afternoon play in the playground in Paraiso ng Batang Maynila in the boundary of Tundo and Caloocan, a project of the late Mayor Villegas, this place already heaven to poor kids during that time since their joy were easily fulfilled…if Baby would been alive today, maybe he would have been my childhood sweetheart or may be my wife, there is a different kind feeling or aura, since at that early age, I already know that Baby would be a part of my life, actually her younger sister was married to one my grade school classmate/cousin, so hindi rin siya napalayo, up to now they still talking if her Ate is still alive today I would have a different destiny….maybe….then I really know God really works in very mysterious way, I lost Baby to Leukemia, at the age of 6 I lost a very dear friend, up to now her memories still lingers on, I stayed near her coffin and never left her until she was buried, maybe ….that’s why I just fall in love again at the tender age of 22…hehehe…. to my wife because of Baby…. When she died I was staring at her coffin, and asking why God has to take her…
