And it Struck Me

I was reading a blog of another famed blogger, Migs, regarding falling in love - and how it washes everything away like a flash flood.

In a world of superficiality, people do not get to appreciate the simplicity that surrounds us. Only when we are with our true love, do we get to see that the petals makes the flower jubilant with color, that the water is silent when it runs deep and the sky is blue because of the sea.

I would have been in no writing mood but because of this song, I am obliged to share a simple and poignant symbol of how genuine love should be.

I present to you, "Never Saw Blue Like That" by Shawn Colvin - soundtrack of runaway Bride and Dawson's Creek.


Never Saw Blue Like That by Shawn Colvin


Today we took a walk up the street
And picked a flower and climbed the hill
Above the lake

And secret thoughts were said aloud
We watched the faces in the clouds
Until the clouds had blown away

And were we ever somewhere else
You know, it's hard to say

And I never saw blue like that before
Across the sky
Around the world
You've given me all you have and more
And no one else has ever shown me how
To see the world the way I see it now
Oh, I, I never saw blue like that

I can't believe a month ago
I was alone, I didn't know you
I hadn't seen or heard you're name
And even now, I'm so amazed
It's like a dream, It's like a rainbow, it's like the rain

And somethings are the way they are
And words just can't explain

Cause I never saw blue like that before
Across the sky
Around the world
You've given me all you have and more
And no one else has ever shown me how
To see the world the way I see it now
Oh, I, I never saw blue like that before

And it feels like now,
And it feels always,
And it feels like coming home

I never saw blue like that before
Across the sky
Around the world
You've given me all you have and more
And no one else has ever shown me how
To see the world the way I see it now
Oh, I, I never saw blue like that before

Oh, I, I never saw blue like that

Love is so kind that it teaches you to sacrifice.

Love is so great that it shows you how to care.

Love is so great coz it provides happiness.

However, Love can be selfish for it teaches you to own somebody.

It is cruel coz it allows Lovers to fall apart.

It is rude cause it provides barrier among friends.

Love leaves you pain, burden and tears.

Love lets you do things for others.

Love teaches you to hate

and eventually..

Love teaches you to be strong in order to survive and love again.
