That Sunday, That Summer

The scent of the sea, the sound of the waves, the trip we took, the adventure we made, each other’s hands we hold, our old pictures and the last letter from you, I keep them all close to my heart. Whenever I’m in the dark, in the cold, I will always have that Sunday, that summer.

The music that play at all time

No matter wherever I am, the music of that night’s still playing loud and clear throughout my body. The sentimental music, dancing people and your voice that took my breath away. After one last dance, you walked away and put that music in my heart then took a part of me away with you.

The river that runs through us

As we jump into the river of time and life, sometimes we sail, sometimes we swim and sometimes we dive. It doesn’t matter which way, as long as we don’t close our eyes and give up, it will only make us stronger, better our understanding and hopefully allow us to make peace with ourselves, before the river runs dry.

Travel to the heart

Since we were born, we go around and around looking for happiness. We earn money and fame but still not quite happy and before we know, death comes knocking on the door. Are we missing somethings? Maybe the happiness is already here within your heart all along. Take a trip and travel to it often, you may crave for outer things less, understand yourself more and become happier.

Home is what I bring with me

Sometimes, in the sea of life, I evolve into someone I don’t recognize. But what I carry with me at all time is my home, a small river behind the streams and falls. A place that one day I will return there to die.

Happy folks under the rain

The rain may bother many, but there are still people who are happy under the rain. The ones who need the rain to live, the ones who need the rain to grow and the ones who’d like to stay under the rain just a bit longer.

Be like the wind

Live like the wind that goes everywhere but is bound for nowhere,
Love like the wind that touches everyone gently but takes nothing along with her,
Die like the wind that disappears without any traces of lingering and regret.

A box of memories

There’s one box I set aside, a present I’d love very much to open, but last time I did, all the memories of the long lost love pierced through my heart. I then put it down where it was and left it. Let’s meet again one day when the tears are faded but hopefully the memories will still remain.

We’re all with layers

Before you judge, look underneath the faces, underneath the thorns and underneath the layers. You may see a person who knows love, have fear and can feel the pain of losing something or someone just like you.

Keep the dream alive

Sometimes you feel like you are tied down. However any bondage is only temporary, keep your dream alive inside have hope for tomorrow. When the cloud is gone, when you can see again, the time will be yours.
