The One That Got Away

Tinitignan ko inbox ko tapos nakita ko itong e-mail. At karamihan sa mga blog na nababasa ko ngayon eh about sa kanilang mga past love life. I guess makakarelate din kayo dito. God Bless!!!

The One That Got Away
Source: The Manila Times
By: Mark J. Macapagal

In your life, you'll make note of a lot of people. Ones with whom you shared something special, ones who will always mean something. There's the one you first kissed, the one you first loved, the one you lost your virginity to, the one you put on a pedestal, the one you're with ...and the one that got away.

Who is the one that got away? I guess it's that person with who everything was great, everything was perfect, but the timing was just wrong. There was no fault in the person, there was no flaw in the chemistry, but the cards just didn't fall the right way, I suppose.

I believe in the fact th! at ending up with someone, finding a longtime partner that is, does not lie merely in the other person. I can actually argue that an equal part, or maybe even the greater part, has to do with the matter of timing. It has to do with you being ready to settle down and commit to someone in a way that goes beyond the little niceties of giddy romance.

How often have you gone through it without even realizing it? When you're not ready to commit in that mature manner, it doesn't matter who you're with, it just doesn't work. Small problems become big; inconsequentials become dealbreakers simply because you're not ready and it shows. It's not that you and the person you're with are no good; it's just that it's not yet right, and little things become the flashpoint of that fact.

Then one day you're ready. You really are. And when this happens you'll be ready to settle down with someone. He or she may not be the most perfect, they might no! t be the brightest star of romance to ever have burned in your life, but it'll work because you're ready. It'll work because it's the right time and you'll make it work. And it'll make sense, it really will.

So that day comes when you're finally making sense of things, and you find yourself to be a different person. Things are different, your approach is different, you finally understand who you are and what you want, and you've become ready because the time has truly arrived. And mind you, there's no telling when this day will come. Hopefully you're single but you could be in a long-term relationship, you could be married with three kids, it doesn't matter. All you know is that you've changed, and for some reason, the one that got away, is the first person you think about.

You'll think about them because you'll wonder, "What if they were here today?" You'll wonder, "What if we were together now, with me as I am and not as I was?"! That's what the one that got away is. The biggest "What if?" you'll have in your life.

If you're married, you'll just have to accept the fact that the one that got away, got away. Believe me, no matter how fairy tale you think your marriage is, this can happen to the best of us. But hopefully you're mature enough to realize that you're already with the one you're with and this is just another test of your commitment, one which will just strengthen your marriage when you get past it. Sure, you'll think about him/her every so often, but it's alright. It's never nice to live with a "might have been," but it happens.

Maybe the one that got away is the one who's already married. In which case it's the same thing. You just have to accept and know that your memories of that person will probably bring a nice little smile to your lips in the future when you're old and gray and reminiscing.

But if neither of that is the case, then it's different. What do you do if it's not yet too late? Simple...find him, find her. Because the very existence of a "one that got away" means that you'll always wonder, what if you got that one?

Ask him out to coffee, ask her out to a movie, it doesn't matter if you've dropped in from out of nowhere. You'd be surprised, you just might be "the one that got away" as well for the person who is your "the one that got away."

You might drop in from out of nowhere and it won't make a difference. If the timing is finally right, it'll all just fall into place somehow and you know, I'm thinking, it would be a great feeling, in the end, to be able to say to someone, "Hey you, you're the one that almost got away."

Spend My Life With You
~ U Turn
oh oh oh oh oh, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
I never knew such a day could come,
and I never knew such a love could be inside one.
And I never knew what my life was for,
now that you're here I know for sure.
I never knew till I looked in your eyes,
I wasn't complete till the day you walked into my life,
and I never knew that my heart could feel so,
precious and pure one love so real
Can I just see you every morning when I open my eyes.
Can I just feel your heart beating beside me every night
Could we just feel this way together till the end of all time.
Can I just spend my life with you.
Now baby the days and the weeks and the years roll by,
but nothing will change the love inside you and I.
And baby I'll never find any words that could explain,
just how much my heart my life my soul you've changed.
you can run to these open arms when no one else understands
(When no one else else understands)
can we tell God and the whole world i'm your woman and your my man
(Can we tell God, that your my man)
can you just feel how much i love you with one touch of my hand
(How much I love you)
(Oh baby baby)
can i just spend my life with you
No touch has ever felt so wonderful
(you are incredible oh oh oh oh oh)
And no deeper love I've never known
(i'll never let you go oh oh oh oh oh oh)
I swear this love is true
(NOw and forever for you)
Only for you, to you
oh oh oh
Can I just see you every morning when I open my eyes. ooh ooh ooh oh oh oh
Can I just feel your heart beating beside me every night
Could we just feel this way together till the end of all time.
Can I just spend my life with you.
you can run to these open arms when no one else understands
(When no one else else understands)
can we tell God and the whole world i'm your woman and your my man
(Can we tell God, that your my man)
can you just feel how much i love you with one touch of my hand
Can i just spend my life with you...
Can i just see you every morning when i open my eyes (oooh...)
