Every step I take
Every move I make
Every single day
Every time I pray
I'll be missing you

The first time I heard this song, I was maybe 12. I was struck at how upbeat its lyrics was. In an age when my love was books, hearing this song from my teenage sister's radio made me appreciate music like never before.
I don't have a voice. This truth is something I always have frustrations about. And so I relish just listening to songs. Few songs (or rather, artists as songs can't sing) can make me sing along with them but I'll Be Missing You is and will always be one of those few songs.
If at first it is the melody that struck me, years after, after I have googled this song's lyrics, I came to appreciate it more for it is a poignant song, a fitting tribute to a friend who has passed away.
I heard this song from my Ipod today. And in a day when it's too cold, hearing this is like having a warm blanket to soothe my frayed nerves.
Now I feel better.
