Yamilé Nadra What's beautiful is that thre are people who are truly capable of unconditional love, of which this is a touching instance. It was nice for you to share, Jessy


message 2: by Yamilé Nadra (new)

Yamilé Nadra Yes, me too.
You know, it reminds me to the lyrics of one of my favorite songs, and my favorite song from this singer and composer: Elton John.
Title is: The Last Song.
When I'm specially sensitive, I end up crying, but it is beautiful all the same. It's wonderful how the lyrics and the music can connect you to the feelings... Have you ever listened to it before.
Below, I copy the lyrics:

Yesterday you came to lift me up
As light as straw and brittle as a bird
Today I weigh less than a shadow on the wall
Just one more whisper of a voice unheard

Tomorrow leave the windows open
As fear grows please hold me in your arms
Won't you help me if you can to shake this anger
I need your gentle hands to keep me calm

`Cause I never thought I'd lose
I only thought I'd win
I never dreamed I'd feel
This fire beneath my skin
I can't believe you love me
I never thought you'd come
I guess I misjudged love
Between a father and his son

Things we never said come together
The hidden truth no longer haunting me
Tonight we touched on the things that were never spoken
That kind of understanding sets me free

`Cause I never thought I'd lose
I only thought I'd win
I never dreamed I'd feel
This fire beneath my skin
I can't believe you love me
I never thought you'd come
I guess I misjudged love
Between a father and his son


And here's the original video on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVUnyM...

PS: The subs in Spanish are not too good, but I guess it's not them that matter for the majority in the audience :)

aww! that's awesome! way to go Dad!


message 5: by [deleted user] (new)

probably because not all of them understand... *cocks head in thought*


message 6: by [deleted user] (new)

*nods* but that's the thing. people tend to be scared of things they don't understand, so they won't listen.


message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

yeah. anything for love.


message 8: by [deleted user] (new)

*nods* yep! if its true!


message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

...yeah. but it's not always easy to get. i actually wrote a poem about it.

PLEASE NOBODY STEAL THIS!!

Where is he my farm boy
To care for me
Love me
And hold me in his arms

I found him my farm boy
To care for me
Love me
And hold me in his arms

If only he found me...


I was drawing a horse in a stable once, wrote the first two parts of the poem with it, then realized the horse was me. Later, the poem was updated.


message 10: by [deleted user] (new)

really? cool! i only do when there's something to write about though. i wrote more when i was younger though. i write short stories now.


message 11: by [deleted user] (new)

...emotions...*shakes head to get it from mind* my message might be a little long and might take me a while. just a heads up. :)

same, except with short stories. i'd post them on GR but people can steal them that way.


message 12: by [deleted user] (new)

yeah...I don't think it's fair that people can do that. i mean, what's the point of putting YOUR work on here when others can steal it?!


message 13: by [deleted user] (new)

*sigh* yeah...


message 14: by [deleted user] (new)

message 24: by Ken (new)

Ken (kensamcampo) Dear friend from 5th grade,

I can't believe I've lost you, yet I haven't seen to have lost you at all. I'm glad that you might be at my school by Junior year, but your like a "brother" to me and I really wish you were around me more so that we could talk and have fun like old times.

Sincerely,

Kendra
