Voices of love

I heard love today. And the feeling is very amazing, especially since it come from my parents.

My parents were lazing around in their bedroom and were discussing how they should spend their Sunday. Somehow, mum said something funny and caused dad to break out in laughter. Mum also joined in of course. In the end, both of them were rolling in their bed, in stiches.

I was in my room, playing with my iBook and heard their laughters. I can't help but break out in smiles when I hear them. I felt very comforted that my parents are alive and healthy, jumping around in bed, sharing jokes and laughters. In fact, I felt very fortunate that I am able to enjoy that. I should really count my blessings everyday and pray that I will be able to hear their laughters more often.

Its not hard to see that my parents are so much in love. They go everywhere together, in fact they even work together. I hardly see my dad or my mum alone without each other. Its such an amazing feeling to see one's parents so much in love after so many years of marriage. They really give meaning to the phrase growing old together.

I envy them.

Somehow, this song come into my mind when I was reading ur posting.

Adam Sandler - Grow old with you

I wanna make you smile whenever you're sad
Carry you around when your arthritis is bad
All I wanna do is grow old with you

I'll get your medicine when your tummy aches
Build you a fire if the furnace breaks
Oh it could be so nice, growing old with you

I'll miss you
Kiss you
Give you my coat when you are cold

Need you
Feed you
Even let ya hold the remote control

So let me do the dishes in our kitchen sink
Put you to bed if you've had too much to drink
I could be the man who grows old with you
I wanna grow old with you

I had that song in mind when I was listening to my parents laughing together in each other's arms.
