Letters 416: Of Love & Hymn to the Hummingbird

 Charles du Bos once said: 

"Love does not care to define & is never in a hurry to do so." 

To you whom I haven't met yet,

           Well dear hummingbird, loving you one day, will be so easy. 

Do you know I will love it when you daydream & you think no one is watching?

Do you know I will love the way your eyes sparkle when you tell a funny story?

Do you know that I will love the shape of your eyes?

Do you know that I will love to watch you smile? 

            I thanked God every night & asked Him to protect you from any harm. Perhaps I am selfish because I pray that you are kept safe for me one day. But God knows that you, my other half of sky, will be my whole life.

            As usual, my heart is as heavy as it has ever been each & every time I ended my letter for you. 416 letters still can't describe how much I wish that you will appear anytime soon. I know that I preach about keeping the chin up & keeping the chin up is what I am going to do. 

Yours faithfully,

The Half Moon Serenade.

Letters 415: Until Our Next Hello

Mother Teresa once said: 

"It's not how much we give but how much love we put into giving."

To you whom I haven't met yet,

        Another week & another writing for you. Anyway, will you believe me if I said that when you love someone, you know in your heart that your love never died? You feel their presence in your heart, even if they are out of your life?

       Sometimes, we may not always get what we “want” in life. However, we will always get what we need in order to grow. We may not consciously ask for certain situations, but on a soul level, we brought them into our lives in order to heal, grow & learn what pure love is truly all about.

       Dear you, once a man has won a woman's love, the love is his forever.  He can only lose the woman if one day she decided the love in her is not for him anymore.

       I hope one day, when I finally found you, you can be the other half of my sky. Anyone can catch my eyes out there, but it will takes someone special to catch my heart & I hope that someone is you.

       Until then, take care wherever you are & put in your heart the fact that I had fallen in love with you way before we knew each other. 415 letters in 7 years, perhaps time is the only answer for my waiting.

Until our next hello,

The Half Moon Serenade.

Letters 414: Of Birthday Cards & Unknown Flowers

Coco Chanel once said:

"Don't spend time beating on the wall, hoping to transform it into a door."

To you whom I haven't met yet,

           It seems funny that whenever I have a rather busy time & very little to spare, tonnes of work always arrives. Since I finished the 413th letter to you, most of my spare time has gone on making birthday cards for the little ones at orphanage on weekend. You see, proper cards for kids are rather hard to get in this part of Penang so I thought it would be a good idea to try & 'manufacture' a few.

            What I have done is to get hold of old cards from any fellow volunteer who had them & copy the desigs or part of them on to my paper. I have some coloured pencils so altogether I have managed rather well. I am making four birthday cards & it takes me at least a day to make one. I have drawn plenty of flowers but for goodness sake my dear, don't ask me in future what kind of flowers that I drawn as I don't have any idea (hahaha). 

           I just think a bit of purple would be nice in there & perhaps maybe some red too. Still I've done my best & I certainly hope the kids at orphanage gonna like it. 

           Here's another thing my hummingbird. This letters for you marked the 414th since the past 7 years. Some of my female friends told me that love letters from their boyfriend is now very scarce & seems to have extinct like the dodo bird. Well, just to let you know, I am still the same wanderers saerching for my other half of sky (which is you). 

           This maybe a bit lame to you, but put it down to my sense of humour. 414 letters still can't describe how much I wish you can be here with me, living the life to the fullest. But until then, whenever you read all my notes in future, put in your heart the fact that I had fallen in love with you way before we knew each other as lover. 

Yours always,

The Half Moon Serenades.

Letters 413: The Flower Perishes (And the Seed Remains)

Maya Angelou once said:

"Try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud."

To you whom I haven't met yet,

        One day, some fools out there might tells you that this beautiful life perishes like the body & which never returns when it dies. But tell them, the flower perishes but the seed remains & lies before us as the beauty of life is everlasting. 

         It was but yesterday I thought myself a fragment quivering without rhythm in this sphere of life. But after one moment of silence, I learned that I'm the sphere & all life rhythmic fragments moves within me. Somewhere along the line, there was a time when I thought my life is nothing but just a fast pursuit of monetary living instead of happiness. But in the end, I decided to live my life to the fullest & to make each day counts.

         Dear you, some people struggles to find life outside himself, unaware that the life he is seeking is within them. But I wish that for whatever you did in your life, never lose faith in God. For me, why on earth can we lose faith when the dreams of those who sleep upon feathers are not more beautiful that the dreams of those who sleep upon the earth?

        I believed that faith is the strength that carried me to write all my 413 letters in 7 years for you. After all, love is forever. Hopefully you will stumble upon all this letters, one day, someday. And when the day finally arrived my hummingbird, live in my heart as a rainbow & pay no rent forever.

You're my Inspiration,

The Half Moon Serenades.
