[THOUGHTS] Always with me

Somewhere, a voice calls, in the depths of my heart.
May I always be dreaming, the dreams that move my heart.
So many tears, of sadness, uncountable through and through,
I know on the other side of them, I’ll find you.   
Everytime we fall down to the ground, we look up the blue sky above.
We wake to its blueness, as for the first time.
Though the road is long and lonely and the end far away, out of sight,
I can with these two arms, embrace the light.
As I bid farewell, my heart stops, in tenderness I feel,
My silent empty body begins to listen to what is real.
The wonder of living, the wonder of dying.
The wind, town and flowers, we all dance one unity.


Somewhere, a voice calls, in the depths of my heart.
Keep dreaming your dreams, don’t ever let them part.
Why speak of all your sadness or of life’s painful woes?
Instead let the same lips sing a gentle song for you.
The whispering voice, we never want to forget, in each passing memory.
Always there to guide you.
When a mirror has been broken, shattered pieces scattered on the ground.
Glimpses of new life, reflected all around.
Window of beginning, stillness, new light of the dawn.
Let my silent empty body be filled and reborn.
No need to search outside, nor sail across the sea.
Cause here shining inside me, it’s right here inside me.

I’ve found a brightness, it’s always with me.


These are not my words. But, they are the most beautiful I’ve seen. I couldn’t stop myself from sharing it with the world. After all, If we can’t be the candle, we can still be a mirror to reflect it.

This comes from a english-dubbed version of great japanese animated movie, Spirited Away. You’ll like it, if you get to spare some time for it. 🙂

Here’s the song. I know, it’s in japanese, but then, something melodious always sounds good. Or, maybe, something good, always sounds melodious.
