Things that have happened...

I love you...
The couple met each other at the entrance of the building. He was going out, she was going in. She said "you are late" as he rushed past her. He did not stop, he just kept walking fast, but he laughed. She entered the building, the door closed heavily behind her. Then as if on second thought, she opened the heavy door again and called out to him "I love you!". We both turned to look at her. Her lover, and me, the passing neighbour.

Hitting Rock bottom...
I hadn't see her for a while. I was not sure if she had been avoiding me or if she had really been busy. Now we meet at the bus stop. She had many excuses, her usual. I was calm. I had ceased to stop caring about such issues. It was up to her if she wanted to get in touch. Such things are not in my power. She said she wanted to move...again. I said quietly that shouldnt she be focusing on her various health issues instead of causing more stress for herself? She recoiled from me. What did she expect me to say? I was worried for her, yet at the back of my mind, I knew, that she was one of those women whose rock bottom is deeper than mine. In my mind, her state was rock bottom. For her, she had not even began the steep descend. I shrugged and got on my bus.

Note on bus stop
"Found bag". We would like to get in contact with you, who found our daughter's bag on bus 700! We got your number on a piece of paper from the police, but the paper has disappeared. We would be very grateful if you contact us on this number, xxxxxxxxx, or send us an sms and we will gladly call you back!
I saw this note on every single bus stop on that bus route. Amazing, what parents do for their children!

Goodbye!

"Good bye!" he said. I could not see him, but I shouted from the other wing, "goodbye"! I walked to the door, he was about to shut it behind him, I gave a small wave, "bye". He opened the door wider, and then gave me a hug. That made me smile.

This is soooo weird...I heard this song on my drive home from work today and for some reason I thought of you. Never seen you before and you don't even know me but the lyrics made me think of you, like it is the kind of thing you'd say, weird right? Here are the lyrics:

Give me one reason to stay here - and I'll turn right back around
Give me one reason to stay here - and I'll turn right back around
Said I don't want leave you lonely
You got to make me change my mind

Baby I got your number and I know that you got mine
But you know that I called you, I called too many times
You can call me baby, you can call me anytime
But you got to call me

Give me one reason to stay here - and I'll turn right back around
Give me one reason to stay here - and I'll turn right back around
Said I don't want leave you lonely
You got to make me change my mind

I don't want no one to squeeze me - they might take away my life
I don't want no one to squeeze me - they might take away my life
I just want someone to hold me and rock me through the night

This youthful heart can love you yes and give you what you need
I said this youthful heart can love you and give you what you need
But I'm too old to go chasing you around
Wasting my precious energy

Give me one reason to stay here - and I'll turn right back around
Give me one reason to stay here - and I'll turn right back around
Said, I don't want leave you lonely
You got to make me change my mind

Baby just give me one reason - Give me just one reason why
Baby just give me one reason - Give me just one reason why I should stay
Said I told you that I loved you
And there ain't no more to say

@ Jaycee: Oh my...I love Paulo but it will only be freaky if I start writing like him...hehehehehe...

@Myne Whitman: I am happy to make you smile, you have a lovely smile.

@BBB: The notes are still up. I am gonna give it one more week, then I am gonna take at least one, for my scrap book.

@F: Yeah, its so sweet...

@Anonymous: How kind you are to think of me and then to take the time to write down the lyrics! They are great lyrics and indeed the kind that I would have written down as well!

I am truly grateful. I almost cried cos this is all very "human", you listening to a song, and then thinking of somebody you don't even know...

Thank you, very much.
