Close to You

Why do birds suddenly appear
Every time you are near?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you

I don’t have many close friends that last for a long time. Those met in childhood, from school and work, they just came and went. After we graduated, moved and changed jobs, we talked less and less, and eventually lost contacts. Even some had claimed as best friends forever once upon a time, we still fell apart due to various reasons. We all have different footsteps of life, but we still walked part of our journey together. And that can possibly be our happiest moment. In case we meet again by chance someday, it’s fine to stop and give each other a hug. I’m still the same me, just gained a few kilos in weight, some more wrinkles, lost some hair and the remaining turned gray.

Why do stars fall down from the sky
Every time you walk by?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you

Many people met their soul mates but at the end they cannot be together. The timings when they met may be wrong – one of them already have a partner, one needs to move overseas, their feelings to each other or the courage just come too late. Although they are not lovers, they share their life stories and are always there for each other. There is at least one special friend like this who occupies an important spot in our heart. Someone we will try to take care, protect and make them happy no matter what life brings us. Your special friend may feel the same way but the question is never asked as the answer is already known. After some time, we get used to this relationship and feel comfortable as we both know that this pure friendship can last for the remaining of our time. To the world you may be just one person, but to one person you may be the world.

On the day that you were born the angels got together
And decided to create a dream come true
So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair
Of golden starlight in your eyes of blue

We can choose our friends but we cannot choose our families. The bond is there once we were born. We went exploring and shared those adventures with our siblings in childhood. But we take different paths of life as we grow up and we become farther and farther apart. Their new families take priority over the old one. At the same time, our parents are getting old and in poor health. We then become aware of how much we love them through the pain of seeing them suffer from illness. Life is a circle. Our parents took care of us when we were young and we watch over them when they grow old. It can be exhausted, but I think this is the responsibility of a family member and what a family is for. Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass; it’s about learning to dance in the rain.
