Forever Autumn

"The summer sun is fading as the year grows old
And darker days are drawing near
The winter winds will be much colder
Now you're not here

I watch the birds fly south across the Autumn sky
And one by one they disappear
I wish that I was flying with them
Now you're not here

Like the sun through the trees you came to love me
Like a leaf on the breeze you blew away

Through Autumn's golden gown we used to kick our way
You always loved this time of year
Those fallen leaves lie undisturbed now
Cause you're not here

Like the sun through the trees you came to love me
Like a leaf on the breeze you blew away

A gentle rain falls softly on my weary eyes
As if to hide a lonely tear
My life will be forever Autumn
Cause you're not here, Cause you're not here, Cause you're not here...."

It's the last day of May, I felt I needed to write something here. Click on the title if you want to watch the youtube video.

Fear of ageing

Why do most women avoid telling their real age and most men don’t? I am a woman but I can’t figure out the answer to this question. Not telling your real age doesn't make you any younger. I am sure not everyone really enjoy getting old but why are women so sensitive about their age??

Happy Mother's Day♥

My mother is a poem
I'll never be able to write,
though everything I write
is a poem to my mother.

Happiness: a familiar term with an undefined definition

"It's good to be just plain happy; it's a little better to know that you're happy; but to understand that you're happy and to know why and how and still be happy, be happy in the being and the knowing, well that is beyond happiness, that is bliss."
Henry Miller

They have put me on hold for the past 20 min to extend my health insurance. Patiently waiting to see when that next available agent they keep promising, will be with me, makes me think about these past two weeks with all its moments. It feels like I am always waiting for something, for tomorrow, for next weekend, for next month, for … . I’m tried of waiting for that bright future, for the day that I have it all. What if happiness is so vague and fuzzy that passes me by without I know it.
