"Only know you love her when you let her go...."

"Well you only need the light when it's burning low

Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go"

You know how people always say that "you never appreciate the one you love, until they are gone"? I guess it's just in our humble human form that God created, that we only appreciate people once they're gone. Best examples?


Before succumbed to a heart attack which actually lead to his death, Tan Sri P.Ramlee was vilified, and humiliated. People kept saying that his artwork is no longer relevant. And look at our film industry today. I can say, and I believe others too will agree with me, that nobody can produce a film half as good as
P.Ramlee did.


She had been battling with alcohol and substance abuse for quite some time. Even made a song about refusing to go to rehab because she thought she was fine. Ironically, that was how she died, at a very young age of 27. Only then, people kept saying how we need more talented people like her.


Need I say more about him? With the many controversies surrounding him before his death, with people kept misjudge him for many reasons, suddenly, on June 25th 2009, when he passed away, everyone is claiming that they are his fans. I know my twelve-year-old cousin admitted to this (she was only eight at the time). If you are his true fan, where were you when he was misjudged? Where were you when people said so many bad things about him?

Those people I've chosen are only just a few people that are only appreciated when they are gone. We don't have to look far though. How about our love ones? Our mother, father, grandparents, siblings. Spouses, boyfriends/girlfriends even. Did you take them for granted, or do you only appreciate them only when they are gone? Listen to the song above, understand the meaning. 

And once you do, tell your love ones how much you appreciate them,
in any ways you can. 
Even a small gesture will mean so much to them.
Don't wait till they are gone then you say that you
appreciate them.
Don't be like this dude in this song.
