Make you feel my love

I fell in love with this song... When I heard it for the first time, I actually teared. The original singer is Adele but I felt Kris Allen brought a soft touch to it and maybe it felt even more when its a male singer.


When the rain is blowing in your face,
and the whole world is on your case,
I could offer you a warm embrace
to make you feel my love.

When the evening shadows and the stars appear,
and there is no one there to dry your tears,
I could hold you for a million years
to make you feel my love.

I know you haven't made your mind up yet,
but I would never do you wrong.
I've known it from the moment that we met,
no doubt in my mind where you belong.

I'd go hungry; I'd go black and blue,
I'd go crawling down the avenue.
No, there's nothing that I wouldn't do
to make you feel my love.

The storms are raging on the rolling sea
and on the highway of regret.
Though winds of change are throwing wild and free,
you ain't seen nothing like me yet.

I could make you happy, make your dreams come true.
Nothing that I wouldn't do.
Go to the ends of the Earth for you,
to make you feel my love

Adele's version is beautiful as well, a different feel to it. I love both version.

This song reminds me of a story I once read online posted by someone who have read this story from an email that was circulated on the web.  Regardless of the truth of the story, it hold a very meaningful message for all.

The girl in the picture is Katie Kirkpatrick, she is 21.  Next to her, her fianc√©, Nick, 23. The picture was taken shortly before their wedding ceremony, held on January 11, 2005 in the US.
Katie has terminal cancer and spends hours a day receiving medication. In the picture, Nick is waiting for her on one of the many sessions of chemo to end.
Happy Marriage?
In spite of all the pain, organ failures, and morphine shots, Katie is going along with her wedding and took care of every detail. The dress had to be adjusted a few times due to her constant weight loss.
Finally Together
An unusual accessory at the party was the oxygen tube that Katie used throughout the ceremony and reception as well. The other couple in the picture are Nick’s parents. Excited to see her son marrying his high school sweetheart.
Katie, in her wheelchair with the oxygen tube ,  listening to a song from her husband and friends.
Trying to go on...
At the reception, Katie had to take a few rests. The pain restricts her to stand up for long periods.
Katie died five days after her wedding day. Watching a woman so ill and weak getting married and with a smile on her face makes us think…..
Happiness is reachable, no matter how long it lasts. We should stop making our lives complicated.
A little love for thought…
Life is short
Break the rules
Forgive quickly
Kiss passionately, Love truly
Laugh constantly
And never stop smiling
No matter how strange life is
Life is not always the party we expected to be
But as long as we are here, we should smile and be grateful.
