Heard this song ("Terima Kasih Teman" by Zawazi) over the radio recently, not sure if its new or not (and whether this artist has been in the industry long..hehe)
The song reminded me of some friends who had passed through my life fleetingly over the years and yet had left few marks.
Anyway, I thought that it was such a nice song and had a soothing melody that I searched for it thru the net :-)..
the lyrics were loosely translated into English (I don't have the flair like my "editor" friend down under..hehe)
I may be sad sometimes over the lost of friendship due to distances, commitments and others, but Alhamdulillah for the chance meetings, I know they have made me happy during those precious moments.
(Excerpt from poem Reason, Season, or Lifetime)
People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.
When someone is in your life for a REASON,
it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.
They have come to assist you through a difficulty;
to provide you with guidance and support;
to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually.
Some people come into your life for a SEASON,
because your turn has come to share, grow or learn.
They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.
They may teach you something you have never done.
They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.
Believe it. It is real. But only for a season.
LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons;
things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation.
It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.

Thank you for being a part of my life,
whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime.
