RIP Whitney Houston

I don’t know why the loss of Whitney Houston hit me so hard. Don’t get me wrong, it is always sad when someone dies young. But the news of her passing somehow hit me like a ton of bricks. I still remember, like it was yesterday, my grandmother taking me to the movie theater  to see The Bodyguard. I was 10 years old, and was lucky that day because my grandmother could not find a babysitter so I got to go see my first Rated R movie. In that dark room, for the very first time, a song, a beautiful voice gave me goose bumps.

I went home and borrowed the cassette tapes from all of my friends (who probably stole them from their parents) and I listened to Whitney Houston songs over and over again. I sang out loud tell my belly ached. Rarely are there people who can touch your life yet never meet you in person. Whitney Houston was one of those people for me.

Momma Whitney, you will be missed.

I Believe In You and Me 

I believe in you and me
I believe that we will be
In love eternally
Well as far as I can see
You will always be the one…
For me
Oh yes you will

And I believe in dreams again
I believe that love will never end
And like the river finds the sea
I Was lost, now I’m free
Cuz I believe in you and me

I will never leave your side
I will never hurt your pride
When all the chips are down Baby
Said I will always be around
Just to be right where you are
My love
You know I love you, boy

I will never leave you out
I will always let you in boy
To places no one’s ever been
Deep inside, can’t you see
That I believe in you and me

Maybe I’m a fool
To feel the way I do
But I will play the fool forever
Just to be with you forever

I believe in miracles
And Our love’s a miracle
And yes, baby you’re my dream come true
I was lost, now I’m free (oOh Baby)
Cuz I believe
I believe in you and me
See I was lost, now I’m free
I believe in you and me
