Truly Madly Deeply

This has got to be one of the most romantic songs of all times. It is so melodious and heart warming that it will never get obsolete. This song was my favourite song many years ago. It was released in 1997 and I sang it everywhere, every time. You know, back in the 90’s, if a boy really liked you, he’d make you a mixtape of all his favourite love songs. This song made it to all of my mixtapes. And later when CDs were in vogue, well this song featured on them too. You cannot have a romantic album without including this song… unless you never lived through the 90s. This takes me back to high school years …sweet, innocent, glory days with boys writing love letters in blood, carefree youth, very good grades and endless possibilities at my side. I think my mid teens up until my early twenties were the most memorable years of my entire life. I had this antique-looking cassette player in my room – one of my most prized possessions near my dresser that I was obsessed with. Getting a signal was quite challenging, constantly adjusting the antenna when I switched to radio. Oh, those were fun days. I really want to go back in time.

If you’d rather have me recite this poem, here is a YouTube video of me doing exactly that.

Truly, Madly Deeply – Ruelha

I'll be everything that you need.
If you take my hand and proceed.
All of your teenage dreams,
that melted like ice-cream.
And all of your wishes.
That sank with those fishes.
And those far-fetched fantasies,
begotten in the bloom of innocent's nascency.

I'll be everything that you need.
If you take my hand and proceed.
I'll be that ray of hope.
When you're hanging on a flimsy rope.
I'll be that true love.
Sent like showers from above.
I'll be that true love.
That fits you like a glove.

I'll be everything that you need.
If you take my hand and proceed.
I'll always love you truly.
It will be forever you only.
I'll love you madly.
Like a lunatic, I'll do this gladly.
I'll love you deeply.
Like the depths of a never-ending valley.

I'll be your pillar of strength.
And will always be there to defend.
I'll be to you so faithful.
You'll never have to go through emotions that are painful.
Can't you see it baby?
It's in my eyes already.
I'll be everything that you need.
If you take my hand and proceed.

There are so many things I want to do with you.
Beginning with making your dreams come true.
Atop the mountains and in the seas.
To my heart and soul, only you'll have those keys.
I want to lay beside you forever.
Dusk to dawn, to hold you tight like treasure.
Until the sky falls down.
Upon my breathing sounds.

I'll be everything that you need.
If you take my hand and proceed.
We have the comfort and protection.
of divine favour approving our union.
There'll be no more tears.
Cause I'll make them disappear.
There are so many things I want to do with you.
Beginning with making your dreams come true.

I'm counting on a new beginning.
A reason for living; I'll be your everything.
An emotion so motivating.
True love, a deeper meaning.
I'll be everything that you need.
If you take my hand and proceed.
Your dream, your wish, your fantasy.
I'll be your hope, your love, your ecstasy.

Please read it with an open mind and out of respect for the written word. To me, writing is my life. There is nothing I love more. I have a very creative imagination. I have always written from my heart …about topics that I am passionate about – Christianity, makeup, melancholic poetry, food, romance, women’s issues, soulful music, narratives etc. Given the circumstances, my gender, situation, geography etc., I feel the need to put up a disclaimer every time I write a romantic/melancholic piece.

Lyrics – Truly Madly Deeply

I'll be your dream, I'll be your wish, I'll be your fantasy
I'll be your hope, I'll be your love, be everything that you need
I'll love you more with every breath, truly, madly, deeply do
I will be strong, I will be faithful 'cause I'm counting on

A new beginning
A reason for living
A deeper meaning, yeah

Well, I wanna stand with you on a mountain
I wanna bathe with you in the sea
I wanna lay like this forever
Until the sky falls down on me

And when the stars are shining brightly in the velvet sky
I'll make a wish, send it to heaven, then make you want to cry
The tears of joy for all the pleasure and the certainty
That we're surrounded by the comfort and protection of


The highest powers
In lonely hours
The tears devour you


Well, I wanna stand with you on a mountain
I wanna bathe with you in the sea
I wanna lay like this forever
Until the sky falls down on me

Oh, can you see it, baby?
You don't have to close your eyes
'Cause it's standing right before you
All that you need will surely come
Ooh-ooh, yeah-yeah

I'll be your dream, I'll be your wish, I'll be your fantasy
I'll be your hope, I'll be your love, be everything that you need
I'll love you more with every breath, truly, madly, deeply do
Mmm-mmm

I wanna stand with you on a mountain
I wanna bathe with you in the sea
I wanna lay like this forever
Until the sky falls down on me

Well, I wanna stand with you on a mountain
I wanna bathe with you in the sea
Well, I want to live like this forever
Until the sky falls down on me

Ooh-ooh
Ooh, yeah-yeah
Oh, oh
La-la-la-la-do-yeah-oh-yeah
La-la-la-la-do-yeah-do-yeah

  1. Ah The Innocent School Days of the Past
    Do They Even Exist Anymore i Don’t
    See How Not ‘Over Here’ Anyway

    Maybe In India

    Perhaps Where

    Divorce Rates are

    Still 1 to 4 Percent

    i surely had my Innocent Days
    too Rue So Full of Emotions And Yes
    Love Yet Only Above The Shoulders
    AS Such Seeing Deeper Than Skin Deep

    For Sure my Kinda Girl Was More Nerdy

    Than Bombshell For Sure Needed That

    Extra Stimulation So Scholastically Evolved

    That Way Hehe Yet What i Didn’t Have And

    Wouldn’t Have Until Age 53 is Comfortable in

    my Own SKin Like Mind Separated From Body No Wonder

    Agape Love Only For me Even Then Hehe.. Yet Yes So True
    Oh the Limitations of Not Being connected to one’s Body Does
    Bring And Yes This Is A Major Functional Disability of Being
    on the Higher Functioning Part of the Autism Spectrum Just

    So Awkward Just A Dizzy Fly Everywhere You Go Not Seeming

    To Understand How To Even Get Out of A Paper Bag If you could

    Even Figure Out How to Get In… It was almost Like i didn’t Even Grow
    up to Mature as A Human Being this way Until 53 And After So While Yes

    All the Innocent Emotions So Deep And Colorful Then Are Yes Still Nice Now

    And Better than ever before as for me at least it’s all about the Colors of Life
    The Dance And Song Now Perspective of Heaven and Hell i would rather be

    Nowhere

    Yet now

    as i am

    Still RiSinG
    Evolving As Soul
    And Before was only
    Kindergarten and Less

    And this is still No More Than
    Grade School Without Grades Now

    For THere Is This Place of Dance And Song
    So Far Beyond Form Yet Mind And Body Soul Essence
    In Balancing So HeART SPiRiT SoUL Dance And Song Full…

    True Maybe i’m the Only One Who Will be 61 on 6.6.21 Who
    Doesn’t Wanna Go Anywhere Yet Now Even More Yet True

    Rue i’m Not Afraid of Dying Already Been The Living Dead This
    Gratitude For Breath Now Never Ends Guess It’s All About Perspective mY FRiEnD..

    True i Am Deeply And Absolutely Madly In Love With Every Breath of Life For That

    Is What It Is Like For One Who Struggles To Get to the Ocean to Drown Just

    to Be Part of the Ocean Of Life Whole At All Suffocating That Way For 66

    Months Empty And Now Living Every Moment Eternally Now Without

    Fear ‘Dancing With the Devil (me) In Pale Moon Light’ Job Already Done

    to Earn Where i am Now Simply Complete Enough With Always Enough to

    Give Even More..Hehe Other Than That Just Another View Your Poem

    So Very Sweet..:)

    Anyway considering i Had Problems Presenting myself Then in Both Writing
    And Oral Presentations All the way through my 40’s In More than a Laundry
    List of Technical Facts And Reciting Common Pleasantries Like ‘How Ya
    Doing’ And That’s About It Along With Being A Dizzy Fly Who Would

    Wanna Go Back

    One Thing i Am Pretty sure of i haven’t Met Any Indian Woman
    Who Is Not An

    Innocent

    ‘Goddess’

    For

    Real as
    Far As
    Myths And Truth in LiGHT Grow

    It Was Worth ‘All The Trouble’ Just to Visit India

    And Worth Surviving in Hell Still To Be Living With my Wife Now…

    Why Will Anyone Living In Heaven Be Afraid of Dying Now They Aren’t…

    That’s

    A

    Litmus Test…

    So Many Fail… ‘to get in’…
