a quick post on a thursday afternoon

  • Since Thursday afternoons are often idle in the office, I’ll just blog the time away. Hehe.

A few more hours and guess what? It’s weekend again! What’s more exciting is two weekends more and off we fly back to home sweet home! Wooh! I just feel so excited that I always fall into senti mode lately. Hehe. As the month progresses, the more emotional I get. Like that one night when I was browsing old albums for my “memories are bittersweet” post. I felt like crazy because I couldn’t help but laugh, feel sad, and laugh again as I browsed thru each snap. One thing was constant though – the smile plastered on my face (Actually, my heart was smiling as well). Perhaps it’s just me but there’s always this warm pinch of emotion that touches me whenever I look at old photos. Well as they say, “A photograph is like an old flame. You forget about them when they’re out of sight but once you come across each other again, there’s always this familiar emotion that envelopes you.” Anyway, though I feel sad those moments were over, I also feel lucky because these pictures are tangible reminders that I had a happy life back home. Sigh. I wish Philippines is like the UAE where locals are considered as main priority (they get paid more) so I can just find a job there and be with my family and friends. That way, I won’t need to satisfy my longing by just looking at old photos. Instead, we will capture new memories by taking lots of pictures every day! Sigh. Wala eh. Sabi nga ng mga pinoy, “Mahirap ang buhay sa pinas”. So tiis tiis nalang dito.

Sana nalang I can make the most out of this trip so when I come back to oh-so-lovely Dubai, I will atleast have fresh albums to look at. Hopefully, these new memories will keep me going as I endure every lonely day spent away from home.

I’m just thankful I can afford a vacation atleast once a year. And of course having my love around helps a lot. I’m a lucky girl!

Anyway, the original purpose of this post was to share this song (napahaba lang). senti nga dba?

THROUGH THE YEARS

I can’t remember when you weren’t there
When I didn’t care for anyone but you
I swear we’ve been through everything there is
Can’t imagine anything we’ve missed
Can’t imagine anything the two of us can’t do

Through the years
You’ve never let me down
You turned my life around
The sweetest days I’ve found
I’ve found with you
Through the years
I’ve never been afraid
I’ve loved the life we’ve made
And I’m so glad I stayed
Right here with you
Through the years

I can’t remember what I used to do
Who I trusted whom, I listened to before
I swear you’ve taught me everything I know
Can’t imagine needing someone so
But through the years it seems to me
I need you more and more

Through the years
Through all the good and bad
I knew how much we had
I’ve always been so glad
To be with you
Through the years
It’s better everyday
You’ve kissed my tears away
As long as it’s okay
I’ll stay with you
Through the years

Through the years
When everything went wrong
Together we were strong
I know that I belong
Right here with you
Through the years
I never had a doubt
We’d always work things out
I’ve learned what life’s about
By loving you
Through the years

Through the years
You’ve never let me down
You turned my life around
The sweetest days I’ve found
I’ve found with you
Through the years
It’s better everyday
You’ve kissed my tears away
As long as it’s okay
I’ll stay with you

Through the years

Like old pictures, this song gives me inexplicit feelings of sadness and joy. basta it melts my heart kasi it reminds me of the most important people in my life — my family, friends and of course, Palos who never let me down and turned my life around.. through the years!
