APOLOGY TO A CHILD

By the time you read this
you may not know me too well.
But then again, we may be close.
You can never really tell.

You used to call me "Daddy."
I used to hold you tight.
I used to bathe you every day,
and tuck you in at night.

I should love your Mommy more.
We should have sat and talked.
The love grew cold, the words got hot,
and then one day i walked.

I cried the night i left you all.
I cry again today.
It seems that's all I've done
since that night I went away.

I hope you know i love you.
Though I wasn't always there.
I think about you constantly,
and you are always in my prayers.

I hope someday you'll understand
that this thing hurt me too.
I hope you know, I always have
and always will love you.

I'm not the man I used to be.
I've learned alot since then.
I wish that I could turn back time,
and live with you again.

But I can't change the things I did,
or take back the things I've said.
All I can do is write these words
while lying here in bed.

I hope that when you read this,
you will know this one thing's true:
That no one else in this whole world
means more to me than you.

*This is to those children that have been left by their Dad. 
And those Dads out there-wherever you are...
i hope you are reading this, just know that your children are waiting for you to come home. To know that you might have taken their smile away must have been the hardest thing you've had to deal with and you Dads out there...just know that your family needs you; and you can't buy a family...
no matter how much money you have.

THANK YOU 2011



For all the times i had to go through the pain of losing someone i love.
For all the beautiful moments i cherished with my FAMILY, my LOVE and FRIENDS..
For new friendship,new perspectives,new horizon.

Love is ironic


Love is ironic. 
Only when you hurt someone they realise they truly love you. 
We shall always fall in love with the people who break our hearts. 
Love gushes out of the ruptures of a 
broken heart and then sends shivers to the whole of our existence. 

Love has to come out somehow and that is 
usually through pain and hurting. 
A heart which is unwilling to be broken, 
is unable to love. 

Similarly, if you cannot break someone's heart, 
it is a sign that they shall never truly love you

Endless Love


Find someone that isn't afraid to admit they miss you. 
Someone that knows you're not perfect but treats you as if you are. 
Someone who couldn't imagine losing you. 
Someone who gives their heart to you completely. 
Someone who says I love you and proves it. 

Last but not least, 
find someone who wouldn't mind waking up to you in the morning, 
seeing your wrinkles and grey hair but still falls in love with you all over again.

The Story

 Broken dream's
broken dream's 

Hoping someday you'll see me

Sky is grey
sky is grey

But i'm dancing in the rain

Live this way
live this way

Will you remember my name?

Live a lie
live a lie

Why don't ask you ask yourself why?
Don't you open your eyes?

Only the moon
only the moon

Will hear my plea
Only the creatures of the night, will harmonize with me

Missed you so 
missed you so

And i wonder if you know

The wind has blown me in the corner 
and it's hard to let go

That's the story
That's the story you and me

Kids need love



A man comes home from work and sits on the couch watching TV.
His little boy comes up to hima and asks, " Daddy, may I ask how much you make in a hour?"
The father got angry. Why was his little boy asking him this?
"Um, $100 why son?" The father replied.
The little boy sighed his head. "Oh. Daddy can I borrow $50?"
The father got angry and sent his little boy to his room. The little boy probably wanted it to buy some toy. Later on in the night when the father cooled off he went to his sons room to give him the money, because the little boy never asked for it much.
"Son you awake?" The father said.
The little boy nodded his head and the father pulled out his wallet and got out a $50 bill. "Here son." The little boy took the $50 and looked under his pillow and pulled out more money. The father got so angry, why was his son asking for money when he already had some ??!!! before he could say anything the boy said, " Daddy I now have $100 can a buy an hour of your time? Please daddy, can you come home early for dinner?" The father hugged his child in regret.

PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR KIDS !!!

Burnt Love Biscuit

When I was a kid, my mom would prepare special breakfast every now and then. And I remember one night in particular, after a long, hard day at work. On that evening so long ago, my mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage and extremely burned biscuits in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed! Yet all my dad did was reach for his biscuit, smile at my mom and ask me how my day was at school. I don't remember what I told him that night, but I do remember watching him smear butter and jelly on that biscuit and eat every bite!

When I got up from the table that evening, I remember hearing my mom apologize to my dad for burning the biscuits. And I'll never forget what he said: Honey, I love burned biscuits.

Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night and I asked him if he really liked his biscuits burned.

He wrapped me in his arms and said, Your Momma put in a hard day at work today and she's real tired. And besides - a little burnt biscuit never hurt anyone! You know, life is full of imperfect things.....and imperfect people. I'm not the best at hardly anything, and I forget birthdays and anniversaries just like everyone else.

What I've learned over the years is that learning to accept each other's faults - and choosing to celebrate each other's differences - is one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship.

And that's my prayer for you today. That you will learn to take the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of your life and lay them at the feet of God. Because in the end, He's the only One who will be able to give you a relationship where a burnt biscuit isn't a deal-breaker!

We could extend this to any relationship. In fact, understanding is the base of any relationship, be it a husband-wife or parent-child or friendship!

Don't put the key to your happiness in someone else's pocket - 
keep it in your own.

God Bless You..... now, and always....

So Please pass me a biscuit, and yes, the burnt one will do just fine!!!!



Moving On Letting Go


It's not called moving on if you have no reason,
It's not called letting go if you didn't have anything in the first place,
It's not called forgetting if once you think you've forgotten they are always on your mind.
It's not called walking away, if you turn back to take another look.

Life is about taking chances, This chance will be the one that he will realize, and look back on
It's called a mistake when you doubt it afterwards,
This is a mistake... Not moving on,just always remember,
We learn from our mistakes.

You leave me alone

My fiancee gave a challenge to me to live a day without him.
No communications at all and said if I passed it,
he'll love me forever.

I'm agreed. I'm did not text or call him the whole day.
Without knowing that my fiancee has only 24 hours to
live because he's suffering from cancer.
I'm excitedly went to my fiancee's house the next day.

Tears fall as I saw him lying on the coffin with a not on the side:

"You did it baby, can you do it everyday? I love you"

Broken Heart

A BROKEN HEART 
is when you actually refuse to get out of bed in the morning because you are afraid of the reality that awaits you.

A BROKEN HEART 
is when you think about the individual that broke your heart constantly. 
You reminisce the "Good Times" almost as if the "Bad Times" never existed.

A BROKEN HEART 
is when you are crying yourself to sleep every night & yet crying more & more each morning.

A BROKEN HEART 
is the unforgettable smell of his shirt that sits in that empty box; 
stowed away.

A BROKEN HEART 
is the cold shattering feeling you receive when you hear the syllables of his name.

A BROKEN HEART 
is glancing at the pictures of the two of you, & then quickly turning your attention to something else to avoid your tears.

A BROKEN HEART 
is re-reading his ancient letters & putting away the jewelry that he once bought for you.

A BROKEN HEART 
is secretly wanting to run back to him & secretly wanting to just be loved by him again.

A BROKEN HEART 
is asking desperately for just one last chance with the only person responsible for your loneliness.

A BROKEN HEART 
is pretending to not care what his friends are saying about you.

A BROKEN HEART 
is forcing yourself to hang up the phone after you have dialed the first three digits to his number.

A BROKEN HEART 
is screaming & begging for a second chance inside.

A BROKEN HEART 
is the emptiness & heart-wrenching feeling you encounter when you see him with his new love.

A BROKEN HEART 
is knowing that no matter what you do or say to yourself, you can't fool your heart into believing that you will in fact "Be Alright."

A BROKEN HEART 
is seeing him, & even though it may be the hardest thing that you have ever had to do, you decide to walk away.

A BROKEN HEART 
is listening to that one song that makes you break down over & over again.

A BROKEN HEART 
sometimes means: not wanting to go on.

Sand of my love

Relationships of all kinds are like sand held in your hand. 
Held loosely, with an open hand, the sand remains where it is. 
The minute you close your hand and squeeze tightly to hold on, 
the sand trickles through your fingers. 

You may hold on to some of it, but most will be spilled. 
A relationship is like that. 
Held loosely, with respect and freedom for the other person
it is likely to remain intact. 

But hold too tightly, too possessively, 
and the relationship slips away and is lost.

I love you


Everytime I say I love you...

I'm really trying to say so much more than those three little words.
I'm trying to say you mean more to me than anyone else in the world.
I'm trying to let you know that I adore you and 
that I cherish the time we spend together.
I'm trying to explain that I want you and that I need you 
and that I get lost in wonderful thoughts every time I think about you.

And each time I whisper "I love you", I'm trying to remind you that you're the best thing that has ever happened to me.

The true is..


we hide because we want to be found,
we walk away to see who will follow,
we cry to see who will wipe away the tears,
and we let our hearts get broken to see who will come and fix them.

Waiting You to be Mine.

Wait for the boy who pursues you. 
The one who will make an ordinary moment seem magical; 
the kind of boy who brings out the best in you and 
makes you want to be a better person. 

Wait for the boy who will be your best friend; 
the person who will drop everything to be 
with you at any time of the day no matter 
what the circumstances. 

Wait for the boy who makes you smile 
like no other boy makes you smile, 
and when he smiles you know he needs you. 

Wait for the boy who wants to 
show you off to the world when you are in 
sweats and have no makeup on, 
but appreciates it when you get all dolled up for him. 

And most of all, 

wait for the boy who will put you at the center of his universe, 
because obviously he's at the center of yours.

Without You

Too much words I can't explain
Too much pain I am hide from me
I missed when u hugged me
I missed when u angry to me
I need u beside me

U taught me about life
Don't be sad, don't be worry
Without you, I can't be what I am now

Time is pass
But u still on my heart
I love u dad..
love u forever
From your daughter on deep heart

Letting Go.

Letting go, even if it hurts, doesn't mean you 
have to let go of everything. 
You just have to let go of the person and your feelings 
for her/him but the memories will always be there 
whether it's good or bad. 

Because everytime you remember those memories, 
it will always put a smile into your heart. 

And be glad that once in your life this person 
made you happy and put colors into your 
Life even if it's just for a while.

but it takes a special person to be a dad

When Fathers Day comes around
I just stare at the ground while everyone talks 
about their Dads 
I begin to wish I had a chance to join their conversation

But I have no reason to celebrate this occasion,
Not because I don't have a dad
But because you wish you never had
that night when you met my mom
and soon had a little-one
You denied me every chance you had,
saying that the women was mad, now 14 years later

You have become nothing but a sperm donator,
with several different kids, who of course are said to be not his,
But not so lucky for you, you were proved wrong,
and this is why I say my tone sing-song
Thanks for making time in your busy life to drag me and my siblings around not even over night,
you sit and talk on your phone anticipating the time we go home;
So here is your "Fathers" day card,
complete with a poem to appreciate how you have worked so hard...
oh wait, it says to dad,
sorry but anyone can be a father, but it takes a special person to be a dad
.....and your qualifications are a little too bad.

Megan

For You Dad

You know dad, looking back i realized something
and you what that is?
without you, i wouldn't be who i am, i'd be nothing
kind of like a pop without its fizz
you were there for when whever you could be
and when you couldn't
you did everything you could to support me
even if you said you shouldn't
you went out of your way
to do man of things for me
and i know you wouldn't have it anyother way
that i can see.
You spent your life teaching me, helping me, doing everything you could for me,
and everything that was said impossible, you proved wrong
that shows me the love you had for me
you did all this and more
as you sent me out in the world
afraid for me, but knowing i would be the man you set me out to be, and more

For that Father... Dad... daddy, i thank you
I love you so very much, more then you could ever imagine.

    If not - NOW is the time to change them. You can begin right were you
    are right now. Nothing matters but this moment and what you are focusing
    your attention on.






Isn't it FUNNY huh?

Isn't it funny that your heart can be broken by someone that was always pretending?

Funny how your friends can make you feel better about any situation.

Funny how bad we think we’ve got it, compared to others who have it worse.

Funny how no matter how much we have, we’re never thankful.

Funny how we can have so many friends, but if we fight with one, life sucks,

Funny how your best friend can hurt you even more than your worst enemy can?

Funny how no matter how hard we try, life will never be perfect,

Funny how many times we can be hurt the same way, and how much more it hurts.

Funny how one person can make you feel pretty even on your worst days

Funny that no matter how much you like someone, if nobody thinks you should be with them, you give into peer pressure.

Funny how on rainy days it’s so much easier to smile,

How one fake friend, can ruin a life.

Funny how your best friend can become your worst enemy with one mistake.

GHOST      : No. she's very happy cause the one that I saved is 
                 the man that she love.. :'(

Letter from Father

My father is the greatest illiterate person in the world, 
Poorest of all the men in the world,
I considered him as the Ugliest person in the world,
Weakest of all in the World,and
A man who knows nothing in this World....

I am always ashamed to stand with him in a crouded area...........!!
I always shouted with my father and even asked him to stay away from me....!!
I had even asked the God why did you give me such a father to me.....!!
I even tried to beat my father too...!!
Still he didn't utter a word to me, Still not even a drop of tear flipped of from his eyes......!!


And one day he Died.....


Then i noticed a paper on his table..
On that paper my father wrote

"Even if you considered me as Poorest,illiterate,Ugliest,and Weakest of all in the World....
Even if you considered me as A man who knows nothing in this World.......
Still I LOVE YOU SON.......
Everything is for you SON........
Even if my stomach is empty I give you the Bread, Even if i had pain, 
I neglected it for YOU MY SON....
Even if i had nothing to wear, I had not let you dressless......
Even if i had not weared shoes in my life....
I didn't let you shoeless.......
I had prayed for you every day and night,even if you avioded me in you prayers....
YES SON I HAD NEGLECTED EVERYTHING IN MY LIFE FOR YOU....
EVEN MY LAST DROP OF MY BLOOD.........
ITS BECAUSE I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH MY DEAR SON.......
AND LAST OF ALL PLEASE UNDERSTAND ME EVEN FROM THIS LETTER BECAUSE I WROTE THIS FROM BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE 
(AND YOU KNOW THAT I HAD SEEN UP TO 5th STANDARED)..........

GOOD BYE SON..........

I WISH YOU A GREAT LIFE, LIVE HAPPILY........
AND IF YOU CAN PLEASE REMEMBER ME IN YOUR PRAYERS FROM NOW "

WITH A BROKEN HEART
YOUR LOVING FATHER...


Everything Happens For a Reason!




I'm a true believer that everything happens for a reason, even when things happen we don't understand. I believe a valuable reason or lesson is behind it even if it's just to make us stronger. Live in the moment, because that's all there is...hang on to the good and let go of the rest. ♥

Greatest person in the whole world

You've been one of the greatest person in the whole world. 
Since the day that i was born you were there to support mum and me. 
You were a proud daddy to me. 
Thank you for teaching ME the values of life the importance of life
I know that there were days that we didnt understand each other i know that you never keep any bad things. 
DAD i know that im not a perfect , sometimes I'm naughty. 
BUT I salute you still for your big patience. 
No one is perfect. So are you dad, 
but you showed us that even your not perfect you can be the best dad.

I LOVE YOU DADDY!
