What makes you different makes you beautiful.

You don’t run with the crowd, you go on your own way, you don’t play after dark, you light up my day. Got your own kind of style that sets you apart. Baby, that’s why you captured my heart.

I know sometimes you feel like you don’t fit in. And this world doesn’t know what you have within. When I look at you I see something rare: a rose that can grow anywhere, and there’s no one I know that can compare.

What makes you different makes you beautiful. What’s there inside you shines through me. In your eyes I see all the love I’ll ever need. What makes you different makes you beautiful to me.

You’ve got something so real, you touched me so deep. The material things don’t matter to me. So come as you are, you’ve got nothing to prove. You won me with all that you do, and I wanna take this chance to say to you:

You don’t know how you’ve touched my life. Oh, there are so many ways, I just can’t describe. You taught me what love is supposed to be. It’s all the little things that made you beautiful to me.

Everything in you is beautiful, love you give shines right through me. Everything in you is beautiful to me.

*Sometimes lyrics can be so meaningful - this one from Backstreet Boys pretty much sums up everything, so here's to you and everything that you've given me! *)

And life doesn't remain same!

Looking at the vast azure sky

I thought the drops of affection

that fell from paradise

have lost.

Now, I confess,

it had rained again

just for me :)

Snippet of time...

There is an unending circle that surrounds us in our everyday life: one that encompasses our very being and touches our core, a spirit of gratitude that greets us with sunrise and tucks us into bed next to the stars. It also encapsulates the beauty in people, of moments and things unnoticed and untold - a book, warm cup of coffee,  warm smile from a passing-by stranger, small butterfly that fluttered by and the scent of summers, the swaying of cold winds that do not want to leave and the stillness of fog, the sound of religious chants in the temple across the street and the anticipation of the events ahead. 

These and many, many more others are things that are there and need to be accepted with an open and grateful heart - for without them, your day would be at a toss! Then and only then can we experience the true blessings of life.

Silent Conversations

Experiencing one of those difficult moments when I'd like to spread comfort, hugs, some silence, faith and lots of love around me. For there is absolutely nothing to say to people who have lost their dear ones - mother, father and just two-months old son.

I've seen their lonely eyes and sad smiles. I've also witnessed the superb strength of character with which they are moving on with life, and their doesn't silent demeanor doesn't even reveal a small something of the turbulence inside.

It becomes all the more difficult when all these people are acquaintances, not close, and I absolutely do not believe in formal condolences. I wish I could share few moments with each one of them - not to ask what happened and why or to say any words that I do not mean from heart, but to tell them they are loved and that I've learned some big lessons of life from them. I hope I get a chance for this later.

For now, silent tears and strong prayers should do some work. They better do!
