If Tomorrow Never Comes…

2 05 2007

I thought I would share my favorite song over here. I have loads of such songs, and this one steals the show for today!

This lyrics fascinate me as I sing them aloud in my heart.. They make me reflect on my priorities in life.. Though Ronan Keating refers to his sweetheart in this song, I would would say my love encompasses all those cherished people in life. Love forms the basis for all the relationships and I would count my blessings if those most precious people in my life accept me for what I am and know that I care for them.

Makes me wonder if I have been transparent in my feelings towards my loved ones, the most treasured people in my life : one who taught me that I could love someone so much: my sweet little Sister, my tower of strength: Mom, an eternal idealist: Dad, A life lived in values: my grand parents, and friends. Really, if tomorrow never comes, will they understand how much I loved or cared for them? Will they ever know how much of my life revolved around them, for their acceptance, love, care, concern and affection?

People ask me what’s important for me? Is it being a top notch, high flying executive someday or being there for my loved ones always? Throughout my life I am trying my best to strike that balance. Career is part of my life, my identity and my independence where as love is the basis on which my life runs. Guess the pride that my little sister has when she boasts that my sister will always pick my call no matter where she is, is of tantamount importance for me than some crucial corporate meeting any day. Coz, I believe in my capabilities of hunting a good job, but I am equally confident that I can never in my life time find a sweet, loving person like my sister. After all, family is family. Sounds like a cliche, yet I swear by it. The bond that ties us is not one of blood, but of respect and love. I respect, love, care, adore, dote them, and if God permits, I would love them more after my death as well!

I know this post has rather became a bit heavy.. Yet, I know that we hurt those whom we love most. In those moments of frustration and anger (which might have been caused by some dumb bloke in office who doesn’t matter in our life any way) we use them as our sounding boards, or misuse them to vent out our feelings. Next time, before you do such thing, pause, reflect and the judge the impact of your action. Tall Order, right? I know. I am still trying..

Thanks for being with me till now.. Enjoy the lyrics!

Lyrics of “If Tomorrow Never Comes” By Ronan Keating

Sometimes late at night
I lie awake and watch her sleeping
She’s lost in peaceful dreams
So I turn out the lights and lay there in the dark
And the thought crosses my mind
If I never wake up in the morning
Would she ever doubt the way I feel
About her in my heart

If tomorrow never comes
Will she know how much I loved her
Did I try in every way to show her every day
That she’s my only one
And if my time on earth were through
And she must face the world without me
Is the love I gave her in the past
Gonna be enough to last
If tomorrow never comes

‘Cause I’ve lost loved ones in my life
Who never knew how much I loved them
Now I live with the regret
That my true feelings for them never were revealed
So I made a promise to myself
To say each day how much she means to me
And avoid that circumstance
Where there’s no second chance to tell her how I feel

If tomorrow never comes
Will she know how much I loved her
Did I try in every way to show her every day
That she’s my only one
And if my time on earth were through
And she must face the world without me
Is the love I gave her in the past
Gonna be enough to last
If tomorrow never comes

So tell that someone that you love
Just what you’re thinking of
If tomorrow never comes

hello friend, the need to strike the balance between the two priorities of ur life. thatsw hat life is all about. i am quoting u my dear. remember, we had a nice chat abt sashi deshapndes novels?how would u like to be remembered if ur tomorrow never comesand when ur yeasterdays are all that is left of ur for others? tha choice rests with u. and perhaps the right choice can make all the difference.u can be the hot shot in a big company, who flies to various corners og the globe. but if u dont have time for ur family, ur currency notes do not have the value of even torn note book pages. you may not have a high paying job. but if u r with ur family when ur family needs u, u r the richest man on earth. being with others is more important than bringing them occasional gifts and then saying good bye. how often do we do this? i know that because, ll of us are busy in our house except my grandmother. still everyday, after college i spend sometime with her. i go to her room and sit by her side, tell her abt my day, and i have given the greatest gift to her.sometimes we dont even speak something. we just lie down next to each other, still connecting to one another. she is happy and i know it.u know one interesting incident comes to my mind. my brother is a software profesional and once he was so busy that i ddnt see him for three days altogether. the next day when i was back from college, he was there at home, apparently busy with his work. he was too busy to talk to me. but i waited patiently, though i was ina hurry to do my job. next time he turned to face me, he saw me, waiting to get a glimpse of his face and i gave him and i smiled at him nad waved at him. that precise moment, he stopped talking over the phone, looked back at me and gave me that rare smile of his when he is steeped in work. beleive me, both of us felt happy that moment. my brother may not remember it now. but i cherish it coz i remember that tears had welled up in my eyes after that moment. and we will be known not by what we have acheived but by what we have given others. some simple acts of love and kindness may make our yeaterdays worth remembering if we dont have a tomorrow
