Some good things never (really) last...Part I
Who doesn't know Barbara Streisand and Barry Manilow? Nobody if you are in your 50's like me and who loves their kind of music.
I love their songs. I am a great fan of both artists especially Barbara Streisand who's one of the world's great singers. They popularized the song "Some good things never last" which happened to be the title of this blog. They were two of my favorite singers.
We both love music and we love to sing. He’s a rocker while I am more of a sentimental singer. He plays guitar too. This is I guess one of those things we have in common that make us click.
I have 3 sisters and 2 brothers and we can all sing, runs in the family so they say. If my memory serves me right, it was when I was in high school that I noticed I can sing. I remembered one of the songs that I always sing was Inseparable by R&B singer Natalie Cole. I love that song.
Although I wasn’t very successful professionally in this category, during those years that I was singing, I knew I made an impact in the hearts of the people who in one way or another have heard me singing my heart out.
Anyway…if I continue telling the stories related to this hobby of mine, this blog should have been titled – My love of Singing or Singing my heart out. :)
I can’t help but remember my mother. She’s one of the best things that ever happened to me, in our family’s life and she died untimely.
Is there such a thing as “forever” ? I still believe it still exist...but to be honest, saying that has a hint of doubt in it.
He asked her name, he was very handsome she told me, in fact a lot of girls were after him and she was very proud saying this whenever we hang out “ Sorry girls,(with matching chinned up and posing with both hands in her waist) he chose me with a laugh” but I can tell she was just very happy.
When they met, right then and there she knew immediately deep inside her heart that they will be together “for the rest of their lives”.
That was really a heartbreaking situation. She told me there was even an instance when he thought of committing suicide. She witnessed how he was so badly affected by what happened.
He was so devastated but was very thankful too that he met my beautiful friend at the time when he was so vulnerable and needed someone to somehow ease the pain and loneliness he was experiencing.
They compliment each other. They did lots of good things together, had great memories captured which were reminders of a once beautiful love story.
She never doubted and I had no doubt too based on what I saw and what my friend was telling me that their relationship for sure will stand the test of time. But it wasn’t the case…..
