This song is the baap of classics! Originally sung and released by Elvis Presley in 1961, there have been so many renditions to this song. I have always loved this song since my childhood days. The depth of emotion required to sing this song is immense. Every time I hear this song, I begin to wail in inconclusive pensiveness. I appreciate this song so much that tears just begin to flow out of respect for the melody and simplicity. Usually, I prefer the original song; but in this case I’d choose this version any day, every single time. I highly recommend the version I have embedded below. It’s a beautiful young couple. They seem giddy headed and can’t stop blushing, constantly stealing glances while they’re performing. You can tell they’re actually singing this song for each other because there’s so much visible chemistry between the two. Who wouldn’t want a boy who looks at you the way this guy has been gazing at her all along? She’s the center of his universe and she definitely adores him too. It’s requited love which is so rare. That’s why it’s just so fulfilling to watch them sing and transform that charismatic warmth into something so beautiful. Young, innocent love!
Falling In Love – poem by Ruelha
Wise men tell me. To speed up and flee. But, I can't help... falling in love with you. Even from a distance, I have no resistance. Should I stay? Let it be this way? Would it be a sin? There's really no win. How you manage to do! Because, I can't help... falling in love with you. Just take one step. And I'll take two. You tipped my sanity askew. This would happen, I always knew. Because, I can't help... falling in love with you. Take my hand. I don't know where I stand. Take my whole life too. Although I can see right through, my heart is behaving like glue. And I can't help... falling in love with you. Some things are meant to be. Even with all the uncertainty. Love is such a thing. Sometimes, nobody wins. Day by day the insanity only grew. And I just can't help... falling in love with you. Like a river flows to the sea. You'll always be a part of me. Some things are just like this. You throw away all your logic. You'll never guess what you put me through. Yet, why can't I help... falling in love with you? Like a teenager I behave. Implored to be your slave. Surely, I'm not wise. You can see weak love in my eyes. Oh, why can't I help... falling in love with you? A river flows to the sea. That is where it will eventually be. I can't control or even hit pause. I cry all night of this because. For I can't help... falling in love with you. Only fools rush in. But you're all under my skin. And still, yet again. Through all the pain. I can't help... falling in love with you. Oh, I can't help falling in love with you! Why can't I help falling in love with you?

Lyrics of ‘Falling in love with you’
Wise men say Only fools rush in But I can't help Fallin' in love with you Oh, shall I stay? Would it be a sin? Oh, if I can't help Fallin' in love with you Like a river flows Surely to the sea Darling so it goes Some things Are meant to be Take my hand Take my whole life too Oh, for I can't help Fallin' in love with you Oh, like a river flows Surely to the sea Darling so it goes Some things are meant to be Oh, take my hand Take my whole life too For I can't help Fallin' in love with you Oh, oh, for I, I can't help Fallin' in love with you

To me, writing is my life. There is nothing I love more. I have a very creative imagination. Most of my poems do not hint at my life/situation. Kindly refrain from drawing such parallels. Much of what I write is purely fictional. 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/intense piece. Everyone is entitled to an opinion. But, please don’t interpret this poem in a way it was not intended. That is just my humble request.
