My 50th Post!

Hello, my friends! Yes, I’m on my 50th post now. And thanks to all of you (100 followers now), I enjoyed my first two months of stay here at WordPress. What a beautiful community! You inspire me so much!

For my 50th post, I’m going to share to you another wedding song I’ve composed for my best-friend. This friend of mine is a bit interesting because she is not your lady-like type of a bride. If I was to compare her to a Disney character, I would liken her to Mulan. She has a mind of her own, very independent, a woman of few words, and has the tendency to be dominant in a relationship. When I interviewed her for this song, she showed me a little bit of that other side of Mulan — that soft side of her. She told me about how happy she was that finally someone has taken the courage to ask her hand for marriage. “It hasn’t been easy,” she said “as I needed someone who can over power me and make me feel like a woman.” She told me about how she has had enough of being the strong one, the bread winner, the one who plans and tries to solve every problem — “This time, I want to be taken care of.”

Well, my friends, my best-friend is now happily married to a soldier. It’s unfortunate that I could not attend her wedding, but I made sure that I was there in spirit. So I wrote a song which she could sing during the exchange of vows. I had to sing it in her key in this rough recording. Ooppss, I forgot to tell you that I could sing like a woman. It’s a gift that God has given to me according to my mom, so I nurtured it and kept it intact. My choral conductors before always assign me to sing with the altos especially when they needed lighter altos to glide with the sopranos. They would call me “counter tenor” — a male singer that sings alto. Well, hope you enjoy the song. It’s a short one, but sweet. Here’s the lyrics:

As Long As You’re There

I believe in you and me
I believe in what we can ever be
I have my fears, my doubts, and my imperfections
But I’ll be alright
I can face our tomorrow
As long as you’re there

I can see a life together with you
‘cause when you’re around,
I feel safe and secured
You give me light
You give me hope
You make me see things clearly
I am myself when I’m with you

‘Cause you are everything to me
You’re my sun, and I’m your moon
So today, I give you my sweetest “I do”
I love you
Yes, I do

I believe in you and me
I believe in what we can ever be
I have my fears, my doubts, and my imperfections
But I’ll be alright
I can face our tomorrow
As long as you’re there

    Just tell your friend some guy on your blog wishes them a happy marriage. LOL! Good Chirp! I have been blessed with a high voice as well, and that’s why I command absolutely no respect… However, it comes in handy when you’re in a band. We still can’t find a name. How does The Used-ta-wasers sound? I’m going on…

    Thank-you for you’re understanding Mockingbird! Hope you don’t mind if I mention your kindness in my next post? :O)

      LOL. Will do. She’s the assistant principal now of the school where I used to teach. Thanks.

      Used-ta-wasers — sounds cool! Whatever makes you wear a smile is a great band name! 🙂

    My new blogging friend, you are more talented than I had initially thought, which is saying a lot I promise.

    I grew up around music, my dad was the lead guitar and vocalist in a band. Music was always there for me, and still is today. I can no longer make music, but I’m thankful I can still listen to it…

    I can feel your passion in the way you describe your own music and of course in your actual work.

    It is a pleasure and honor to be a part of your blogging journey. You’ve touched my heart and my mind… please keep nurturing these talents of yours. You are destined for something greater than you could ever imagine!

    Hugs, Kat =^..^=

      Oh my! Kat, these are really high praises. Thank you so much! It’s humbling to know that I have been able to reach out to you somehow.

      I was worried about you, my friend. I wanted so much to write on your comment boxes but I wasn’t sure how you would take things. Sometimes words mislead us, and that’s why it’s better to say nothing. I so wanted to embrace you, if hugging was the only way to make you understand that it’s alright, things will get better. But we can only do as much, right?

      So I thought MUSIC could help you as it helps me everyday. I’m glad it’s helping you, my friend. I’m honored to be called your friend — thank you.

    50, eh? Great job! I think that puts you ahead of 90% of the people who try blogging. Keep it up … if you want to and it brings you as much, or more, than you give.

      Thanks, David! You’re the generous blogger, I remember you. Yup, I tried to beat time by yielding 50 — a not so bad attempt. The last time I visited your blog, you were busy writing for the novel writing challenge. Hope you’re doing great there.

        50 is great! I think that’s the point where I stopped thinking, “I’m blogging” and started just letting go and writing.

        The crappy novel? Day 1 went well! It’s harder than expected, but then everything new is.
