Tears in Heaven and perhaps Laughters

picture source: photobucket

Exactly nine days from now will be the 1st death anniversary of my dear brother. His untimely demise taught me basically a lot of things. I came to realize that time is indeed so fleeting and that we are just transients in this world. That is why we should always find time to spend quality moments with people close to our hearts for we just don't know how long this privilege will last.

I am sharing with you lyrics of my brother's favorite song. A song by Eric Clapton and it was sung by my brother's best friend before we laid him to his final rest. For several months, listening to this song would always mean tears streaming down my eyes as well but thanks God when I heard it this morning - the feeling of emptiness is no longer there.

I take it is a sign for us to move on and continue dwelling on the thought that my brother is already resting peacefully and now sharing laughters with our dear parents up, up there!

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would you feel the same
If I saw you in heaven?
I must be strong and carry on
'Cause I know I don't belong here in heaven

Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in heaven?
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in heaven?
I'll find my way through night and day
'Cause I know I just can't stay here in heaven

Time can bring you down, time can bend your knees
Time can break your heart, have you begging please, begging please

Beyond the door there's peace I'm sure
And I know there'll be no more tears in heaven

Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would you feel the same
If I saw you in heaven?
I must be strong and carry on
Cause I know I don't belong here in heaven

Goodbye, dear bro! Missing you a lot . . . .
