Someone Like You.

I LOST COUNT HOW LONG IT HAS BEEN I waited for someone like you to come along and now that someone like you suddenly appear in real life, smiling and talking with the voice oh sweet and gentle, I find myself lost and alone somewhere between Nibong Tebal and Simpang Ampat.

Here I am in Sungai Bakap walking about in your hometown; hoping for the time to freeze this moment so I can be here a little longer, to imagine for a few minutes more that you're watching me getting used to the idea of having to spend the rest of my life with you, in this here town where I won't get to see the beach because this here town is pretty far inland, and all I can see is miles and miles of Chinese cemetery filling up the entire landscape on the East side.

Someone like you only appear in my wildest of dream but how could I have known that someone like you is up and about in a town like this looking pretty as you. What am I to do when someone like you suddenly appear in real life? Should I whisper her sweet nothings that I've waited for someone like her all my life and now that I've found her I really have no idea what to do because life seems almost complete now that someone like her is as real as the wind in my ears. Life isn't supposed to be complete as this. Life is supposed to be about me dreaming of all the things I can't have that I gotta keep working hard to own the things I can never have. I'm supposed to be searching and looking for someone like her in my wildest dream. Someone like her isn't supposed to appear at the door smiling and talking with a voice oh sweet. Someone like her is supposed to come around in my dream, smiling and talking with a voice oh so sweet, leaving me feeling oh so alone because someone like you have taken away all the love in me that I can't love another and all I can do is to keep on dreaming and hoping to love someone like you all over again.

Somewhere between Butterworth and Georgetown, I take the ferry to Penang Island feeling completely at sea now that I've found someone like you but for the life of me, I don't really know whether to close my eyes and fall in love, or to keep on dreaming until it's time for me go.

Dear Encik Bergen, when she comes along - in real life - even buying her a bottle of drinking water is such a romantic gesture..BTW, The Pearl of the Orient is the perfect love for romance and falling in love over and over again..Do visit Spice Garden at Teluk Bahang and sit on the giant swing overlooking the sea with her ok? and stay at lone pine hotel ok?

“… to close my eyes and fall in love, or to keep on dreaming until it's time for me to go …”
At a crossroad, don’t know what to do?
I am there and a friend told me the other day, “If you were my sister, I would have smacked you.” I want to say the same to you too. "If you were my brother, I would have smacked you." Hehehehehe!!!

Zabs: LOL, susah nak cakap.

Anonymous 7.08am: It'll come knocking soon enough for you.

Fi-Sha: You've got it all figured out, haven't you? LOL

Kama At-Tarawis: I'll cook you nasi lamb mendy with bamia, hormuz and salad with Moroccon dressing. Nasi minyak saya dok pandai buat. he he

Fauziah Ismail: If you were my sister, I would glad let you smack me. he he

Dee3: Let's see which way this is gonna go.

Elviza: Maybe it is that to some people, ma'am. Oh yes, I'm wide awake and I for one will never consider it that way no matter how bad it may turn out because I believe things happen for a reason. You do sound angry, ma'am. I hope you are all right.

Your post here reminds me of one of my favourite Rod Stewart's songs, Reason to Believe.

Here's part of the lyrics that came to mind:
"Someone like you makes it hard to live without
Somebody else
Someone like you makes it easy to give
Never think about myself"

The time will come when you are ready. But then again, if we never make the plunge, how would we know we are ready?

Have a good day, Sir Bergen.

Good Luck, dear sir.
Somehow you gave me hope that love is for real, not just an imagination.

Please know my prayers are with you. Always.

Close your eyes, Mr.B.

Like this Australian bungee jumper once said, "why live on the edge when you can actually jump off?"

Close your eyes and take the plunge.

No, I am not angry sweetie; I just think that love is overrated.

I am sure, dearest, you will be just fine.

Goodnight
