Always You Only



I always believe that two people who belong together will always be together eventually. No matter how long they’ve been separated by the time, no matter how far the distance has taken them apart, they will always be together in the end. No matter how many other people come and go in their life, they will always be together after all. I always believe that in the end, we are at the place where we belong to be; home. And at some point in life, a home-like person once came into our life and never leaves. No matter how the course of destiny has led our life, there is nothing that could ever replace that home-like person. No matter how many times we stumble and get lost along our way, we can always find our way back to that particular home-like person. No matter how other love has tempted us, we can always get back to our conscience for that particular home-like person. For I believe that everything is predestined. Hence every of our choices always leads us to that particular home-like person, whether we realize it or not.

“My days are getting weary from waiting. I’m getting used to the sighs at the end of my longing. As if it’s a lie, as if I’ve been dreaming, only you can heal me.” –Hyorin, Always

At some point in life, a home-like person once came into our life and never leaves. In front of that particular home-like person, our heart is pounding for they are the sole reason why our heart is beating. In front of that particular home-like person, our whole body is trembling for they are the main reason of our very existence in this universe. In the eyes of that particular home-like person, we feel alive. In the touch from that particular home-like person, we feel loved. “As if you can almost hear it, my heart is pounding. As if you can almost see it, I can’t hide this trembling. Just by looking at your eyes, just by the touch of our fingertips, I can feel you.” And whenever we are apart from that particular home-like person, our soul is waiting until the time when we are with them again. And though it’s hard and exhausting, we got used to wait. Though it’s tiresome, we keep waiting. “My days are getting weary from waiting. I’m getting used to the sighs at the end of my longing. As if it’s a lie, as if I’ve been dreaming, only you can heal me.”
We keep waiting. We choose to hang on no matter how hard it is, for we know that the particular home-like person is the only one who could heal our heart that is weary from waiting. We choose to hold on no matter how tiresome it is, for we know that the particular home-like person is the only one who could wash away the pain and exhaustion. “Always, I am you, even if time separates us. Always, I’m always the same, even if my heart aches, you’re the reason I breathe.” For we know, no matter how far apart we are separated from them, that particular home-like person is the only one we are longing for. For we know, no matter how painful the waiting is, that the particular home-like person in the only one we are breathing for. And we consciously choose to do that. even if we try to stop, we cannot help but keep doing it. Our heart unconsciously keeps doing it. for we know, that the particular home-like person is the only one we love. “Without even knowing, my heart chose to do this. Now I can’t stop; I live because I love you.”
For our heart knows that the particular home-like person is always the only one it wants. For our mind knows that the particular home-like person is always the only one it needs. For our soul knows that the particular home-like person is always the only one it loves. For we know that we belong to that particular home-like person. “Always, it’s only you among the countless twists and turns. I will always, please remember, even if my tears flow, our promise can’t be erased. Always, even if my time is up, this love can’t be stopped.” Among the twisted courses of this universe, we know that the particular home-like person is always the only one. Among the intersections in this chaotic life, we know that the particular home-like person is always the only one. Even when we shed tears from pain and devastation, even when it hurts, we know that there is this one promise that will never be broken, always. Even when the world comes to an end, even up until the day when we are gone, we know that this feeling cannot be stopped, always.

In this life, some people promise themselves for a person only; a particular home-like person. No matter how many acquaintances they have met before, no matter how beautiful the memories they shared together with other people who come and go in their life, no matter how meaningful the moments they had built together with other people who once gave them thrill and euphoria, there is only one person they make a promise for. And in order to fulfill that promise, they would give endless efforts. In order to keep that promise, they would give anything up. In order to earn that particular home-like person, they would be willing to fight for it. For they know that though they may be able to survive without the presence of other people in their life, they just can’t do it without this one particular home-like person. For they know that though they may be able to move on without being together with other people in their life, they just won’t do it without this one particular home-like person. For they know that they will always love that person. For they know that when it comes to that person, “always” is not an impossible, absurd concept. For they know, when it comes to that person, “always” is real and true.

“Always, it’s only you among the countless twists and turns. I will always, please remember, even if my tears flow, our promise can’t be erased. Always, even if my time is up, this love can’t be stopped.” –Hyorin, Always
