Love ....

Mushy stuff... got it as a forward ...

Don't find love, let love find you. That's why it's
called falling in love, because you don't force
yourself to fall, you just fall.

Lucky is the man who is the first love of a woman,
but luckier is the woman who is the last love of a man.

It takes a minute to have a crush on someone,
an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone...
but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.

It breaks your heart to see the one you love is happy
with someone else, but it's more painful to know that
the one you love is unhappy with you.

If love is the answer,
can you please repeat the question?

Faith makes all things possible.
Love makes them easy.

I believe that to truly Love, is the ultimate
expression of the will to live. A heart that
truly loves is forever young.
Love makes life so confusing, but without love
would you really want to live?
Love me now, love me never,
but if you love me, love me forever.

Love me now, love me never,
but if you love me, love me forever.
Three things of life that are most valuable -
Love, self-confidence & friends.
To the world you may be just one person,
but to one person you may be the world.

Who do you turn to when the only person
in the world that can stop you from crying,
is exactly the one making you cry?

Many a young lady does not realize just how strong
her love for a young man is until he fails to pass
the approval test with her parents.

Is it better for a woman to marry a man who loves her
than a man she loves.

Give her two red roses, each with a note. The first note says 'For the
woman I love' and the second, 'For my best friend.'

A good marriage is like a casserole,
only those responsible for it really
know what goes in it.

Love, true love, is that which can give the most
without asking or demanding anything in return.
All, everything that I understand,
I understand only because I love.

Love cures people -- both the ones who give it
and the ones who receive it.

One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life:
That word is love.

 It is wrong to think that love comes from long companionship
and persevering courtship. Love is the offspring of spiritual
affinity and unless that affinity is created in a moment, it
will not be created for years or even generations.

When they asked me what I loved most about life,
I smiled and said you.
Just because you know someone doesn't mean you love them,
and just because you don't know people doesn't mean you can't
love them. You can fall in love with a complete stranger in a
heartbeat, if God planned that route for you. So open your heart
to strangers more often. You never know when God will throw
that pass at you.

Love... What is love? Love is to love someone
for who they are, who they were, and who they will be.
Why do you say you love me,
if you are only going to leave me?

Love is like a river, always changing,
but always finding you again somewhere
down the road.

Love is a language spoken by everyone,
but understood only by a heart
It doesn't take a reason to love someone,
but it does to like someone. You don't love
someone because you want to, you love someone
because you are destined too. It's because you
 fall in Love with them, that you then try to
 find a reason, but you always come up with
the answer, No reason!

Just be there ... and stay.

I really liked this forward, so I've pasted it here, if you have the time, do read it .

The nurse took the tired, anxious serviceman to the old man's bedside. 

'Your son is here,' she said to the old man..  

She had to repeat the words several times before the patient's eyes opened.  

Heavily sedated because of the pain of his heart attack, he dimly saw the young uniformed Marine standing outside the oxygen tent. He reached out his hand. The Marine wrapped his toughened fingers around the old man's limp ones, squeezing a message of love and encouragement.  
The nurse brought a chair so that the Marine could sit beside the bed.All through the night the young Marine sat there in the poorly lighted ward, holding the old man's hand and offering him words of love and strength.  Occasionally, the nurse suggested that the Marine move away and rest awhile.  

He refused. 

Now and then she heard him say a few gentle words. The dying man said nothing, only held tightly to his son all through the night. 
Along towards dawn, the old man died. The Marine released the now lifeless hand he had been holding and went to tell the nurse. While she did what she had to do, he waited.  
Finally, she returned. She started to offer words of sympathy, but the Marine interrupted her.  

'Who was that man?' he asked.

The nurse was startled, 'He was your father,' she answered. 

'No, he wasn't,' the Marine replied. 'I never saw him before in my life.'  

'Then why didn't you say something when I took you to him?'

'I knew right away there had been a mistake, but I also knew he needed his son, and his son just wasn't here.  
When I realized that he was too sick to tell whether or not I was his son,  
and knowing how much he needed him, I had to stay.'  

The next time someone needs you ... just be there.....and stay.

Time heals all wounds .... really?

Time heals all wounds... heard that before right ?
Everybody says it so often that at one point we just start believing it. Add the philosophical look to the statement, and voila ! Its sold !
Does time really heal all wounds? If you lost a leg, you get a wound, time probably heals the wound, but what about your leg ???
I was recently in a minor accident, and got hurt on my foot, I was limping for sometime, but after a point of time, though it hasn't really healed, I have learnt to walk almost normally, because I have leart to adjust to it and live with it. My wound's gonna heal in a week max. 
You learn to block the sad memories - walk in ways that do not hurt ... and say time did it. It healed ... Time gets all the credit for being a silent observer. 
Whatever works right. But what works ?
My point though is that, I don't really think time heals all wounds... we just hope it does, and after a point just the hope is enough to sustain us and keep us going.
Heck ! Hope keeps the whole world going ! 
The scar remains, and I wish that the hope remains too ... as skeptical as I may sound about it, thats what keeps me going too ... Happy hoping !

Far Far Away !

I'm gonna let you in on a little secret ....
Everytime I'm really confused, or there are too many things I have to take care of, but I don't seem to be able to, I start saying stuff like "I want to be far far away" or "I wanna sleep now and wake up after a 100 / 40 years" ... simple attempt at escapism actually. The deal though is that I have to stay on and face whatever it is I'm trying to distance myself from.
Don't worry, I'm not gonna tell you what were those things I'm wishing didn't exist. I'm gonna tell you about my idea of a perfect "far far away" .

It was this place I went to in my dream once ... 
A field with soft red grass.. yeah red. The field was somewhere on a hill ...
There were no trees around ( which is to be mentioned here, because my idea of peace usually involves a big shady tree and a light drizzle)
There were no flowers, but the grass was really soft, and smelt really good.
There were ups and downs , but smooth ones.
The temperature was perfect, the sun was out, but it was cool.

At a distance, there was someone sitting there;
Male or female I don't know
Waiting for me or watching out for me, I don't know
But who ever it was, whatever their purpose, he/she made me feel warm, comfortable and most of all safe. From a distance. (Don't ask me why I felt compelled to mention that o.o)

I also had a bag with me, had a note book in it. 

It was all so perfect, I had everything I wanted;
someone there, perfect peace, a nice bag (yeah, I'm obsessed with bags), note book

Food , water and shelter :P

[Couldn't find a picture, somethings can't materialize ... some dreams do come true ]

Post thought : Did I reveal too much ? (Gulp)
