A Reason, A Season or A Lifetime...

Thanks so much Ma!]

People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime
When you figure out which one it is,
You will know what to do for each person.

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 and spiritually.
They may seem like a godsend, and they are!
They are there for the REASON you need them to be.

Then, without any wrong doing on your part, 
or at an inconvenient time,
This person will say or do something to bring
the relationship to an end.
Sometimes they die.
Sometimes they walk away.
Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand.
What we must realise is that our need has been met,
Our desire fulfilled, their work is done.
The prayer you sent up has been answered.
And now it is time to move on.

When people come into your life for a SEASON...
Because your turn has come to share, grow and 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.
Your job is to accept the lesson.
Love the person
And put what you have learned to use in all
other relationships and areas of your life.
It is said, that love is blind
But friendship is clairvoyant.

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

i hope my presence will be for a lifetime. eh! cam stalker pulak .. hehehhe..

Lili said...


I hope, er...I also hope I'm in your life for ever! But life needs seasoning just like my cooking, no? Otherwise, it'll be bland and boring.

I said it before and I'm saying it again - oh, you are one clever cat, you do know what I'm getting at! Poof and pop, my dream bubbles just burst! ;) Okay, I'm back on earth..

Lili said...

Ayoh Wang,

psst...but he did not give us the big picture, kan? Hehe! ;)

Lili said...


But of course, your presence is cherished for lifetime!

p/s when I saw the pic Puteri put up in fb, I immediately pm her. She's delighted when I told her I'm going to use this one pic for my blog.

The skies and sea feel so melancholic to me. :)

I nak jadi kawan yang ada 'telinga besar', 'bahu lebar' dan 'mulut seumpama tissue paper'.
Psst.. konon ahli pujangga nih guna bahasa kiasan, heheh.

Lili said...


Oh I'm so honoured...and in that case, that song, 'Sempurna' is dedicated to you and people like you! ;)

psst...Musykil gak, macam mane mulut boleh seumpama tissue paper? ekekeke))

somuffins said...

Sempurna tu lagu Yuna ke? Wpun I banyak kekurangan, dah you kata gitu, I tewima dgn hati bermunger2, mekasih.

Mulut seumpama tissue paper maknanya nasihat atau cadangan yg mungkin I beri, haruslah berbunyi lembut lagi menyejukkan hati..dan kata2 lembut tu seakan2 menyapu airmata yg mungkin mengalir..

P/S: ...kekdahnya....

Lili said...


Yuna who? hehe...I'm no fan of hers. Lagu Sempurna lagu Andra & backbone, but this one sung by Gita Gutawa. Syahdu jer dengar gadis manis ni nyanyi. Banyak makna...hehe ;)

Oh like that one arr...really, your nasihat to me very the sejuk hati one. Thank you thank you!
