Waiting for something to happen

There are things I’ve done and places I’ve been
Where I may have hurt you and I don’t know
Err I’m sure I have done but haven’t seen
Bear with me and take this night as I owe
So take this night to let me be
Grow with me and please forgive me
Show me you care with your smile
Snow or rain I come with a plea
Midnight comes and what’s to happen
Waiting for something to happen
We thought this was our haven
Waiting for something to happen
Promises not being delivered
Still waiting for something to happen

Flowers from you

receiving flowers when we moved
lovely coming from you my dear
when you’re not here they brought me cheer
with boxes the place has improved

we may not be together
but that’s fine
I can deal with that
perhaps it’s for the best
we’ve tried other means
might work this time

when we were together you just disappear
the blue-grey stone are clad in grooved
for the best when we’re both removed
alone and think of yesteryear

time has come
when we need to part
for both of us to grow
and appreciate what we had
starting new
new house, new friends

hindi kita malilimutan
kahit ano pa man*

  • I’ll never forget you
    whatever happens

Our Austrian Trip

Hello everyone! Just got back from our Austrian holiday and we had a smashing time. We drove to Mittersill, which is around 3 hours away from Munich, passing by St. Johann, Kitzbuhel and other lovely towns and villages.


We reached the castle where we stayed for 4 nights. Here’s the view from our balcony.


Here’s my back while I enjoyed the view. What a life!


Some of the food we’ve had. Delicious!


We walked during the day. On the first day we walked to Mittersill town.


“These boots were made for walking.”


On the second day, we drove to Salzburger Land and walked up the mountains. That was hard work! But worth it!


The horses were so cute!


We reached Hinter See and stayed there to have our picnic.


“The hills are alive with the sound of music!”


So, what made you smile this week?
