Although I’m very irked by the whole ONE day for Love deal, I had the most wonderful day possible, with surprises that I hadn’t expected, and expected events that didn’t happen (Just yet?), but at the end of the day, I am in love all over again. The kind of love that makes you hopeful, that it only takes one second for the Universe to bless you with everything you’ve been hoping for (and more).
Even once you’ve taken off he rose tinted glasses, Love is everywhere, whether it is your parents, your best friends or (best of all) even yourself, there is ALWAYS love around you waiting to be noticed. So as I get ready to turn in, I can’t help but feel a little overwhelmed and tongue-tied, and when words don’t come easy, I rely on words of the Greats who knew their way around the typewriter.
What better poem that the one I chanced upon today – a perfect synchronicity. A poem about a man who loved a love so, it made the angels envious.
Annabel Lee By Edgar Allan Poe
It was many and many a year ago,
   In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
   By the name of Annabel Lee;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
   Than to love and be loved by me.
I was a child and she was a child,
   In this kingdom by the sea,
But we loved with a love that was more than love—
   I and my Annabel Lee—
With a love that the wingèd seraphs of Heaven
   Coveted her and me.
And this was the reason that, long ago,
   In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
   My beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her highborn kinsmen came
   And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
   In this kingdom by the sea.
The angels, not half so happy in Heaven,
   Went envying her and me—
Yes!—that was the reason (as all men know,
   In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
   Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.
But our love it was stronger by far than the love
   Of those who were older than we—
   Of many far wiser than we—
And neither the angels in Heaven above
   Nor the demons down under the sea
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
   Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
For the moon never beams, without bringing me dreams
   Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise, but I feel the bright eyes
   Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
   Of my darling—my darling—my life and my bride,
   In her sepulchre there by the sea—
   In her tomb by the sounding sea.
I hope that this year brings a love that even Angels in heaven envy.
Until next time, Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤

Valentine’s Day 2015: After thought

So Valentine’s Day was yesterday, technically it still is in some parts of the world… The day the entire world celebrates love with roses, hearts, candy and too much red and pink!

For the likes of us who celebrate love with every breath we take, its just another day and another excuse to love some more! I couldn’t not write something about it. So here goes, I don’t quite know the lore behind Valentine’s day, and I don’t really want to, because I’ve always had my own little thoughts about love and its definitely not enough to celebrate it only one out of three hundred and sixty five days of the year.

Today, just like yesterday and the days before, and perhaps like tomorrow and the days after, I’m in love with being in love, in love with my boy in black suit and blue shirt, with moments spent, with life itself, the most fleeting thing in the world.

My hope for the world is that the people in it love some more! show it some more, cherish it some more…. I honestly don’t know how to end this post cause I don’t think I want to give this an end… Here’s to continued hope, this Valentine’s day…

Love… Always !

20140215-082513.jpgContrary to popular opinion, I’m not the biggest fan of Valentines Day ! I find it very absurd that only ONE of the Three sixty five days of the year is ear-marked for celebrating love, when in reality, love should be celebrated on all the three sixty five days (unless its a leap year, then all three sixty six days !!! well, you get the point 🙂 …)

Whether you’re Single or Taken, whether you’re young or old, whether you think you are, or not, You’re Loved.. There’s always someone who loves you more than life itself, there’s always someone you will love (at any given point) more than life itself.. And if that isn’t worth celebrating, I don’t think anything is…

The MOST glorious thing in the world, Love. A seemingly small word which is perfectly enough, no more adjectives, no more explanations required. It is complete in itself. So many have tried defining it, describing it, in words, in songs, in works of art.

To me, its pretty much the simplest things in the world. Don’t turn it into an intellectual quest, or a battle to be won, that’s not what it is meant to be, Just allow yourself to feel it without limiting it with conditions. Just Love..

Happy St. Valentine’s Day !! ❤

Until next time,

Love unconditionally.
