Nobody Loves Me Like You Do

When I heard the news yesterday, I didn't know how I felt. Hence, I didn't tweet any single well wishes or write anything at all about her passing.

This morning though, as I sent my eldest to school, Flyfm played the song, I Will Always Love You on the radio and I suddenly felt moved... I became so sad and got a little engulfed in the touchy lyrics. I suddenly felt as if she was talking to me and telling me that when she's gone, she hopes that life will treat me kind and that she hopes I will have all that I dream of... and she wishes me joy and happiness, but above all these, she wishes me love....

I guess I had always loved her... I loved her back then until she got married and destroyed her life. I thought, I didn't like her at all to be all that pathetic and making excuses instead of controlling her own life and destiny. Now she's gone, I still am not sure how I feel about it because I haven't missed her all these while and I may not miss her, to be brutally honest. But I guess I have to admit that she did have the most powerful vocals and she did inspire some of the best singers there are now. In fact, it was that song that I sang in a small competition in my teens, and I won. So, today, I feel so sad. I feel sad that she is gone but most of all, as a mom, I feel extremely sad for her daughter. I am hoping that her daughter will be strong and remain strong.

And today, I feel like sharing this one song that I have always loved. It is from her first album - a duet she did with Jermaine Jackson. I couldn't find the actual video clip on youtube so this is probably the best version I could find. A song apt to be shared on the eve of Valentine's...





Like a candle burning bright
Love is glowing in your eyes
A flame to light our way
That burns brighter everyday
But now I have you
Nobody loves me like you do

Like a leaf upon the wind
I could find no place to land
I dreamed the hours away
And wondered everyday
Do dreams come true
And nobody loves me like you do

What if I'd never met you
Where would I be right now
Funny how life just falls in place somehow
You've touched my heart in places
That I never even knew
'Cause nobody loves me like you do

I was words without a tune
I was a song still unsung
A poem with no rhyme
A dancer out of time
But now there's you
Baby, nobody loves me like you do

What if I'd never met you
Where would I be right now
Funny how life just falls in place somehow
You've touched my heart in places
That I never even knew
Nobody loves me, nobody loves me
Nobody loves me like you do
Nobody loves me like you do

- Were you shocked by the news?

Babe, your writings present my feelings. I could not write any better than you, thus I did not write about my feelings at all. You are right, it was only yesterday that the feelings really hit me too.
