People

One of my favorite song that was popularized by Barbra Streisand.

People,
People who need people,
Are the luckiest people in the world
We’re children, needing other children
And yet letting a grown-up pride
Hide all the need inside
Acting more like children than children
Lovers are very special people
They’re the luckiest people in the world
With one person one very special person
A feeling deep in your soul
Says you were half now you’re whole
No more hunger and thirst
But first be a person who needs people
People who need people
Are the luckiest people in the world
With one person one very special person
No more hunger and thirst
But first be a person who needs people
People who need people
Are the luckiest people in the world…

Colors of Autumn

From the song ‘The Autumn Leaves’, I was so inspired to take pictures of the trees and leaves.

Image

The falling leaves drift by the window

Image
The autumn leaves of red and gold

Image
I see your lips, the summer kisses

Image
The sun-burned hands I used to hold

Image

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I’ll hear old winter’s song
But I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”  ― Albert Camus

Morning Has Broken

Morning Has Broken

by Cat Stevens/Eleanor Farjeon

Morning has broken, like the first morning

Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for them springing fresh from the Word.



Sweet the rain’s new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall, on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where His feet pass.


Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God’s recreation of the new day.

“Live today. Not yesterday. Not tomorrow. Just today. Inhabit your moments. Don’t rent them out to tomorrow. Do you know what you’re doing when you spend a moment wondering how things are going to turn out with Perry?

You’re cheating yourself out of today. Today is calling to you, trying to get your attention, but you’re stuck on tomorrow, and today trickles away like water down a drain. You wake up the next morning and that today you wasted is gone forever. It’s now yesterday. Some of those moments may have had wonderful things in store for you , but now you’ll never know.” 
― Jerry Spinelli

My Simple Prayer in a Song

DAY BY DAY — from the Movie/Musical Godspell(Wiki)

Day by day
Day by day
Oh Dear Lord
Three things I pray
To see thee more clearly
Love thee more dearly
Follow thee more nearly
Day by day

[CHORUS]
Oh…

Day by day
Day by day
Oh Dear Lord
Three things I pray
To see thee more clearly
Love thee more dearly
Follow thee more nearly
Day by day

(repeat chorus 5 times)

Lovin’ You

Lovin’ You by Minnie Riperton

Di na yata mawawala sa puso ko ang kantang ito na unang narinig sa mga radyo nung 1975. Nasa second year college ako at girlfriend ko na ang aking naging Misis nuon.

Wala na si Misis…anim na taon na ang nakakalipas pero andun parin ang lambing at tamis ng dating ng kantang ito sa akin. Biglang nanunumbalik ang magagandang alaala na para bang tunay na walang kamatayang pag-ibig.

Pasensiya na kayo at mangungusap lang ako sa aking Misis sandali sa pamamagitan ng kantang ito. Malay ninyo baka may Internet siya sa kanyang kinalalagyan ngayon. (Isang pag-alala ko sa kanya ito sa buwan ng kayang paglisan sa mundong ito…anim na taon na ang nakakalipas.)

Makin’ love with you is all i wanna do
Lovin’ you is more than just a dream come true

Sobrang salamat Mommy sa iyong dakilang pagmamahal na ipinadama sa akin. Alam ko sinabi mo nuon sa akin ilang buwan bago ka lumisan na mag-asawa akong muli. Pero hanggang ngayon ay di ko magawa dahil wala pang makakapalit sa aking pagmamahal sa iyo.

And everything that i do is out of lovin’ you

Ang dami-dami talaga akong napagtagumpayan at natupad na pangarap dahil nakasama kita sa aking buhay. Kaya ko nakakaya ang buhay na ito sa ngayon ay dahil parte pa rin ito ng ating mga pangarap.

No one else can make me feel
The colors that you bring

Kapag tinatanong ako kung bakit wala pang pumapalit sa iyo Mommy sa aking puso ay ito ang aking nagiging kasagutan.

Stay with me while we grow old

Alam ko ang daming pangarap natin nuon at kasama ito. At alam ko di ito matutupad sa mundong ito ngayon pero pinuno mo naman ako Mommy ng pagmamahal kaya kasama pa rin kita sa aking puso hanggang ngayon…sa aking pagtanda.

And we will live each day in springtime
Cause lovin’ you has made my life so beautiful
And every day my life is filled with lovin’ you

Lovin’ you i see your soul come shinin’ through
And every time that we oooooh
I’m more in love with you

Someday and somewhere Mommy siguro magkikita tayong muli at matutupad ang mga ito.

I love you Mommy…

Sana magustuhan din ninyo ang kantang ito. Salamat.

Lovin’ You – Minnie Riperton

Lovin’ you is easy cause you’re beautiful
Makin’ love with you is all i wanna do
Lovin’ you is more than just a dream come true
And everything that i do is out of lovin’ you
La la la la la la la… do do do do do

No one else can make me feel
The colors that you bring
Stay with me while we grow old

And we will live each day in springtime
Cause lovin’ you has made my life so beautiful
And every day my life is filled with lovin’ you

Lovin’ you i see your soul come shinin’ through
And every time that we oooooh
I’m more in love with you
La la la la la la la… do do do do do

Miss Kita Kung Christmas

Ito ay isang OPM(Original Pilipino Music) na christmas song nung dekada sitenta na talaga namang nakakapagpabalik ng magagandang alaala. Inawit ito ni Susan Fuentes na isang sikat na mang-aawit nung kapanahunan ng sibol ang OPM.

Medyo malungkot ang awit na ito pero nagpapakita lang ng realidad ng buhay ng  isang Pinoy…na ang mga taong na minsan ay ating minahal ay talagang naalala natin lalo na ngayong Pasko…at ninanais man lang na makapiling o mabati sa darating na kapaskuhan.

Marami tayong nami-miss kung Pasko…na katulad ko kaya angkop na angkop ang awitin na ito. At isa na ngang laging nami-miss ay ang mga mahal sa buhay na hindi makakapiling ngayong Pasko.

Part of the song goes this way…

Ang disyembre ko ay malungkot.
Pagkat miss kita
Ano man ang pilit kong magsaya
Miss kita kung Christmas
Kahit nasaan ako
Papaling-paling ng tingin
Walang tulad mo
Ang nakapagtataka’y maraming
Nakahihigit sa ‘yo

Hinahanap-hanap pa rin kita
Ewan ko kung bakit ba
Ako’y iniwan mong nag-iisa
Miss kita, O giliw
Pasko’y sasapit ‘di ko mapigil
Ang mangulila
Hirap niyan mayro’n ka ng iba.

—Salamat ‘CircaSitenta’ sa bidyong ito.

May nami-miss ka rin ba ngayong Krismas?

Grown-Up Christmas List Song

Ikalawang Taong Pasko ko na sa isang Linggo dito sa bayan ni Ankel Sam. At pasensiya na kayo di yata makasulat ang Lolo ninyo ng isang istoryang pamasko…may lungkot ang dating sa akin habang papalapit ng papalapit ang Pasko. Maraming nami-miss ang Lolo ninyo sa Pilipinas.

Kaya eto nag-iikot sa youtube…at nadaanan ko ang isang ngayon ko lang narinig na kantang Pamasko na inawit ni Natalie Cole at David Foster.

Grown-up Christmas List Lyrics

Music by David Foster

Lyrics by Linda Thompson

Do you remember me

I sat upon your knee

I wrote to you

With childhood fantasies

Well, I’m all grown up now

Can you still help somehow

I’m not a child

But my heart still can dream

So here’s my lifelong wish

My grown-up Christmas list

Not for myself

But for a world in need

No more lives torn apart

That wars would never start

And time would heal all hearts

Every man would have a friend

That right would always win

And love would never end

This is my grown-up

Christmas list

What is this illusion called

The innocence of youth

Maybe only in their blind belief

Can we ever find the truth

There’d be no more lives torn apart

And wars would never start

And time would heal all hearts

Every man would have a friend

And right would always win

And love would never end

This is my grown-up Christmas list

This is my only lifelong wish

This is my grown-up Christmas list

Hoo—, hoo–

Muli isang Maligayang Pasko sa inyong Lahat.

Wala na akong masabi…nabanggit na sa awitin ang akin sanang Grown-up Christmas List.

Merry Christmas!
