‡ Letting Go ‡

There was once a lonely girl who longed desperately for love.

One day while she was walking in the woods she found two starving song birds.
She took them home and put them in a small glided cage.
She nurtured them with love and the birds grew strong.

Every morning they greeted her with a marvelous song.
The girl felt great love for the birds.
She wanted their singing to last forever.

One day the girl left the door to the cage open.
The larger and stronger of the two birds flew from the cage.
The girl watched anxiously as he circled high above her.
She was so frightened that he would fly away and she would never see him again that as he flew close, she grasped at him wildly.
She caught him in her fist.
She clutched him tightly within her hand.
Her heart gladdened at her success in capturing him.

Suddenly she felt the bird go limp.
She opened her hand stared in horror at the dead bird.
Her desperate clutching love had killed him.

She noticed the other bird teetering on the edge of the cage.
She could feel his great need for freedom.
His need to soar into the clear, blue sky.

She lifted him from the cage and tossed him softly into the air.
The bird circled once, twice, three times.

The girl watched delighted at the bird's enjoyment.
Her heart was no longer concerned with her loss.
She wanted the bird to be happy.

Suddenly the bird flew closer and landed softly on her shoulder.
It sang the sweetest melody, she had ever heard.

The fastest way to lose love is to hold on too tight.
The best way to keep love is to give it -- WINGS!


Dikutip dari Afterhours Inspirational Stories,
sudah lama sejak terakhir gw ngasih bacaan ya, hehe.

Tema hari ini masih tentang cinta;
iya, tema dari kemarin masih tetap nempel di otak.
Gw ga lagi jatuh cinta, itu yang pasti.
Cuman jiwa melankolis gw memang lagi keluar ajah sekarang ini, haha.

Inti ceritanya sih simple;
terkadang saat kita mencintai seseorang, ada pikiran untuk terus menjaganya agar tidak hilang,
melindunginya agar tidak terluka.
Cinta bukanlah sesuatu yang bisa disebut hak kepemilikannya;
cinta itu bebas.

Saat mencintai seseorang, berikan dia kebebasan untuk dirinya.
Menyayangi dan melindungi cinta dengan cara kita sendiri demi kebahagiaannya.

Gw pernah ngobrol dengan beberapa temen gw;
saat kita punya pasangan dan dia ga setuju dengan ini itu dari kita,
mau kita mengikuti keinginannya,
itu berarti yang dirasakan mungkin bukan cinta sejati.

Gw ga tau makna cinta sejati;
gw juga belum merasakan apa itu cinta sejati.
Tapi gw tau cinta itu tidak mengikat.

Cinta juga tidak sempurna;
tugas kita lah menjaga cinta itu sebaik mungkin. :)

"If you love something, set it free;
if it comes backs it's yours.
If it doesn't, it never was."
(Richard Bach)

+Lyrics of the day+
Let the love go on, on and on
It's so cold on there
Take my hand
And you'll be strong, on and on
With our love we can lay down the world
Let's lay down the world
(Let The Love Go On by Me & My)
