The Last Post

Ok this is not actually my last post but I was thinking of what shall I write in my last post in my blog when I decide to call it a day! So I thought about a simple goodbye and that is it or even leave without a warning! But I just thought of that as boring! And since most bloggers here like controversy, I decided that in my last post, I am gonna reveal my HATE list of the bloggers and say why I hate them and so on :D And of course I will mention the good bloggers who I will miss dearly when I leave!

So stay tuned to the hopeless finale of this so hopeless blog!

Not so soon though ;)

Song of The Week: Longer

Oh my god! So many Mondays passed by without posting any song or poem of the week! But alas! Yours truly has found the song he was looking for and he is gonna post it!
Remember my post about Dan Fogelberg? I have found a song for him online and here it is! Enjoy reading and listening to what is really a GREAT song! It was my first song I hear from him and that was in 2001 and I liked him since!

Longer (Click on the title to go to the song page- the lyrics there are not fully correct)

Longer than there've been fishes in the ocean
Higher than any bird ever flew
Longer than there've been stars up in the heavens
I've been in love with you

Stronger than any mountain cathedral
Truer than any tree ever grew
Deeper than any forest primeval
I am in love with you

I'll bring fire in the winters
You'll send showers in the springs
We'll fly through the falls and summers
With love on our wings

Through the years as the fire starts to mellow
Burning lines in the book of our lives
Though the binding cracks and the pages start to yellow
I'll be in love with you
I'll be in love with you

Longer than there've been fishes in the ocean
Higher than any bird ever flew
Longer than there've been stars up in the heavens
I've been in love with you
I am in love with you

Blood Related

A short poem I have just finished and it didn't take me much to think of the words which is good :D

It is called "Blood Related" and it is about family members who just let's say don't know anything about other family members. And I don't mean distant relatives, I mean brothers, cousins, nephews, nieces, aunts and uncles.

Blood related but we act like strangers

Not once I remember we have met

Remain as we are, or things changers

Life is short and shorter, it can only get

Brought up differently and miles apart

But we still share some common things

And no matter what, we still can start

A friendship, and enjoy the joy it brings

River View

These are 2 photos showing the river which is just a street away from where I am currently staying! Isn't the view amazing? Look at the clouds! I think I can walk on them! They look so thick and they can handle me :P

Dan Fogelberg

Dan Fogelberg is one of my favorite singers and I guess that most of my regular visitors never heard of him! As usual :P
He is a folk/rock singer who has a wonderful voice and who emerged in the music scene during the 70's and 80's with such songs like Longer, Make Love Stay, Hard to Say and Leader of the Band where he sang about his father who was a bandleader ( the best lines from that song is when he says: I thank you for the music and your stories of the road -- I thank you for the freedom when it came my time to go -- I thank you for the kindness and the times when you got tough -- And, papa, I don't think I said 'I love you' near enough) it almost makes me wanna cry when I listen to those lines in particular!

I highly recommend this artist to listen to if you are fed up with the crap they dare to call music these days!
For more information and lyrics check his official site Dan Fogelberg.

* The photo is from 1975 so if anybody decided to listen just because of the looks I am warning you that he changed a little bit now :P

The Night

Finally I managed to finish this poem! I started writing it back in last winter and now summer is almost done! Yes that is how slow I am sometimes :D
Well it is about something I am planning to do when I get married and that is to let my wife sleep and stay up all night watching her sleeping till she wakes up and I will bring the breakfast to her in bed! I sound crazy I know but I think I can do it ;)

So here is the poem, enjoy

The Night

My sweetheart, you know how I long to touch you
So please do not think I don't want to make love anymore
It is not that I do not want to hold you the whole night through
But tonight just let me look at you like I never did before

So just lie on the bed and get into a peaceful sleep
Don't worry, I won't be far away I'll just sit on the chair beside the bed
I'll safely guard your dreams while you are in slumber deep
And I'll give you some of mine to hide under the pillow beneath your head

I know it is a cold night, and I should be with you under the covers
But watching sleeping like an angel will surely send warmth into my heart
And it's just amazing, this feeling of love above us hovers
And the bond between us so strong that no one can tear us apart

I promise you I'll stay silent all night and I won't say a word
Until the morning comes and it's time for you to be awake
I'll serve you breakfast in bed, just like you have always preferred
And this is just a small thing of what I'll do for your sake
