“Ting”.. the messenger new message tone woke me up from my random thoughts.

A link to a youtube video. Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” song.

“Its really good”, A song from my little one, with the comment.

I don’t know how she figures out that I am in need for a good song to calm my mind. She does it all the time. Good music soothes me down.. Calms my mind. But the beauty is in getting to hear them when you need them the most and for me, my girl seems to know from far far away, whenever mom is in need of a good song. My blessings!

So, there I am listening to Ed’s “Perfect”. Yup a great song on love. As usual, I go on to click the links to the other new songs and  I come across “Supermarket Flowers”.

A lovely song, that got me to tears as I looked thru the old album pictures of a vacation spent with mom and dad and my family…

The silence is deafing these days. Mind is unsettled. These are the times, that I would have picked up a phone and called mom…. and dad… They would have listened to my unnecessary worries and would have calmed me down. Oh how, I miss hearing their words!

Dad always told me don’t you cry when you’re down
But mum there’s a tear every time that I blink
Oh I’m in pieces it’s tearing me up but I know 
A heart that’s broke is a heart that’s been loved”……

Ed sings it so beautifully… and my tears just flows….

I hope that I see the world as you did cause I know
A life with love is a life that’s been lived
So I’ll sing Hallelujah, you were an angel in the shape of my mum
When I fell down you’d be there holding me up …..

How I wish I could have my angels by side, holding me up everytime I fall……..
