My bag of cards

Going through some of my stuff, I saw my bag of cards again. Going through them one after the other, I couldn't help but smile at those beautiful cards with some as old as 12 years. Looking at some of the cards I've received over the years (Birthday, Valentine, Christmas cards), like I do once in a while, I see how the smallest things can mean a lot. I also realised the number of cards declined as the years went by.
 The value of cards have no doubt declined drastically, though many people never cherished them from the start as they feel it's intangible compared to gifts. All the same, cards are lovely pieces that stand the test of time. Yeah, I have collections of gifts (though many have been used and disposed) and there's also the huge collections of good deeds, pictures and memories that are forever in my heart. But somehow, my bag of cards have managed to go everywhere with me.
 Here are some cards in my greeting cards collection😁

Above all, remember anything given or done out of love, whether gifts, someone's presence, time or just a hug, should be appreciated. It shouldn't always be about the price tags.

So here is a big thank you to you all for 2015 and even the previous years. You mean so much to me 😁

The Lonely Road

As I sat down
With tears flowing freely down my cheeks

Memories come flashing back
Like a rushing wind

Thoughts cloud my mind
Thoughts of what was
What could have been
The good, the bad and the ugly

I’ve been through this road before
Yet, history repeats itself

Where my heart used to be

Where are those days?
The happy days where there was so much to look forward to
Where are those moments?
The amazing moments that took my breath away
Where are those actions?
The cute actions that blew my mind
Where are those words?
The sweet words that made my heart melt
Where are those times?
The times you were there when you should be
Where are those promises?
The reassuring promises that kept the spark alive
Where are those hugs?
The warm hugs that made me feel at home

Where are those ears?
The ears that listened to me
Where are those eyes?
The lovely eyes that made my eyes light up
Where is that heart?
The beautiful heart so good and true
Where is that future?
The bright future we were building
Where is that time?
The undivided time you had for me

Were they all lies?
Please tell me they were not

My eyes can see
But they don’t see you anymore
My ears hear clearly
But your words have gone faint
My heart still feels strong things
But it’s back to default
Where you met it
Where it’s used to
Where it loves to be
It's back to  me
I’ve crawled back to my shell
