Heard this song in a beautiful concert a couple of weeks ago and I don’t know why is it stuck on me these days. I suddenly felt how great the lyrics were. Maybe because I always listened to it and just felt it’s an old song that I used to hear on the radio all the time. But when I listened to it in the concert I really felt stupid how I never noticed how great the lyrics is. So here they are:

قالولي هان الود عليه ونسيك وفات قلبك وحداني
رديت وقلت يشمتوا ليه هو افتكرني عشان ينساني
انا بحبه وراعي وده ان كان في قربه والا في بعده
وافضل امني الروح برضاه ألقاه جفاني وزاد حرماني
هو اللي حالي كده وياه كان افتكرني عشان ينساني
ليه يلوموني وياه في حبي ولايلوموني على صبر قلبي
هو الللي شفت بحبه الويل ولارحمني يوم ورعاني
وفضلت وحدي انام الليل كان افتكرني عشان ينساني
خلوني احبوا على هوايا واشوف بحبه سعدي وشقايا
ده مهما طال شوقي اليه ومهما زاد هجره وبكاني بكره
بكره يعز الود عليه ويفتكرني عشان ينساني

NB: The words are by Ahmed Ramy and it’s originally sung by the famous Abd El Wahab.
The concert was for Belal El Sheikh and he’s really great. He’s even better live than any of the recordings or the youtube videos. I really do recommend him

I really miss sitting early in the morning in a shady place that can see the sun and a good hot drink while reading a good book.

On a small note: I’ve been missing out on a lot of things lately even writing let alone writing here. I’ve been really busy and I’m not even doing things that lead me anywhere near any goals I’ve set. I’m trying to do some things I like but I seem to be failing horribly. Today I had the chance to sit in a good cafe have a cool drink – since it was a very sunny day and I walked at 3 pm for about an hour- Wasn’t really reading a fav book but it was interesting. So I’ll take this as a good beginning -not sure of what exactly but I’ll take it as a good sign since it was overall a good day unlike what I expected.

He thought how can life be so cruel. How can she move on when he finally was about to take his first step. She thought how naive of her to think that he loved her once, when it took him that long just to make a simple move.

Birthday

She finally realized what’s been troubling her for the past month.
She realized that although it was her happiest day it was her saddest day as well.
She realized how simple and small the solution is, yet almost impossible to be achieved.
She realized that all she ever wanted was to be able to give him a birthday gift and a warm smile, and tell him how much she appreciates this day. The day the world gave her the best gift, even if she never had the chance to have it, and never will.

He finally decided to leave. After years, it’s his last day in his beloved country. The country he almost only loved because she loved it so much. It was his saddest day because it’s the day he’s gonna lose the only person he ever loved. It was her saddest day because she was gonna lose her best friend.
