It may seem unnecessary
or even regrettable
but in the end,
it all becomes experiences.
When you are blessed with any realisation, I hope you are also blessed with the strength to do what's necessary.
I guess when you're in love, you start to see everything about love with such depth of appreciation & understanding.
I remember reading a quote from Mitch Albom's book, Tuesdays with Morrie:
"You see, you closed your eyes. That was the difference. Sometimes you cannot believe what you see, you have to believe what you feel. And if you are ever going to have other people trust you, you must feel that you can trust them, too--even when you’re in the dark. Even when you’re falling."
Have you ever trust that way?
I see a mirror
In it, I see her
Immensely battling her struggles
Barely reaching out to anyone
There I stood beside her
Wishing I knew what to do
while watching her life pass me by
I didn't know any better
I see a mirror
In it, I see him
Starting to break
Starting to lose his way
There I stood beside him
This time I knew better
Someone needs to reach out to him
before he gets further away
Can I reach out to him?
For a minute,
It felt different - my outlook.
A good kind of different
And I had no idea where it was coming from.
One look was all it took.
Blessings in mysterious ways.
It's funny how you think you have me all figured out.
Let me tell you
sometimes, there's really nothing to figure out at the first place
sometimes, there's more to me than what's on the surface.
I'm not quite an open book, not exactly a close book either.
Well, keep figuring out. Maybe you'll like what you find. Maybe you won't.
It's all who I am. 😉
You're calling out to me,
What do I ever do to be in your sight?
Your love never leaves.
Sometimes, you fall.
Sometimes, you get up.
Sometimes, you lose.
Sometimes, you gain.
And sometimes, you gain in your loss.
It all adds up
Things happening for a reason
Showing me what I have been too engrossed to take note of
How much I have taken things for granted
Different people have different priorities. Just because you think they should prioritise what matters to you, doesn't mean they will prioritise it.
To them, it doesn't matter.
Now I know how it feels like to be treated, similar to how I treated them.
Seems to be nature of humans.
Until you experience it for yourself,
do you then fully emphathise with others who experience it. A slap in my face.
"Be here waiting
Hoping, praying that
This light will guide you home
When you're feeling lost I'll leave my love
Hidden in the sun
For when the darkness comes."
- Lyrics 'For when the darkness comes' by Colbie Cailat
My personal note:
Thank you for leaving your love for her.
I truly believe your love guided her, all the way home. You're the only one who understood her darkness whereas we were all struggling to understand her pain. Your love works wonders.
Please keep her in your care, always.
Dear God, please.
Ever felt like that?
It's like at any moment,
anything that anyone say can tear you apart.
Not because what they said is hurtful,
but because you could no longer keep it together
Touched & impacted all over again.
may he continue to thrive in his life.
Kasih sayang ini meresahkan
Sedangkan ia sepatutnya menenangkan
Ternyata aku silap
Silap menilai erti kesuciannya yang sebenar
Silap dalam meletakkan kasih sayang

1. The more I think about it, the more I realize that life is a miracle.
2. When I look in the mirror, I see a person capable of so much more.

4. I need more courage in my life.
5. I feel most creative when writing and making things/gifts for the ones I cherish.
6. I feel at peace when I love and care.

And we all have things we don't say,
battles we rather keep tucked away
believing it will all be better someday
I thought I understood them all this while.
I wasn't even close.
And when you don't understand something, you don't see it the way it is
you see it how you want to see it
And my god, how wrong it can be
Alhamdulillaah syukur for this realisation. I am so grateful
Now I get it
Understanding is NOT the same as knowing
It's way, way beyond that
You know how when we watch, hear or see something, and then we say in our heads or hearts -
"that is me right there"
or "that could have been me right there"
or "i know that feeling so well."
Pretty amazing how we're all connected in ways we can't even imagine
