Love is You

Doing things I can’t do
Doing things I don’t want to do
Overcoming my fear
Just to do things with you

Going the miles extending patience
Face people overcoming shyness
Dancing the steps and other odd things
I never did in my existence

Waiting no matter how long
Loving no matter how hard
I will do anything for you
I will do anything because love is you.

By The Wndow

The passengers all look so grand
They all look good this I have found
All different shapes in different colors
All smart-looking from different shores

Then come the ladies all poised and pretty
all smiles, accommodating oh all so friendly
They don’t seem to know I am terrified
My fear of heights I try to hide

There by the window I found my seat
The clouds the sky oh what a treat
I forgot my fear oh how I love
The beauty I see here up above

The plane is stable the people are sweet
The voices are reassuring and so complete
Before I knew it the countdown’s done
The handsome captain announced touchdown

The Land Is The Mother We Need

I have always thought of nature as a mother
A mother who loves like no other
Someone who caresses when her child is weak
and plants a kiss in every cheek

The flora and fauna will always be
our “go to” friend who willingly
extends a hand when we are hurt
or hungry, weak and full of dirt

The land knows every beat of the heart
Will comfort will feed won’t let us apart
Won’t let her children go hungry,
make them happy and worry-free

Like a mother the land knows it all
We won’t say a thing won’t let a tear fall
Even without saying she knows when we’re sad
She will fight all demons will make us feel glad.


“Hey beauties” this I always shout
Every morning when the sun comes out
I lift each leaf to check some worms
might hinder every budding bud that forms

Just this morning a tiny shoot
Few days more delicious fruit
Beside the window birds cheerfully
sing in a perfect harmony

One can’t explain the joy I feel
Because of plants my worries heal
Silently healing subtly comforting
Like a friend so reassuring

Oh gardening you are a friend
A therapy until the end
You heal each wound you mend a broken
Hardest of hearts you always soften

ERASED The Little Prince (excerpt) by Antoine de Saint-Exupery

It was then that the king appeared
“Good morning”, said the king
“Good morning”, said the maid
Though she saw no one
“I am right here “,the king said “under the bridge”
And the king grabbed her hand
To the palace they will find
The old priest who will be
The one to wed them gladly.

Dear Old Self

You should have said no when they asked you to lie
Or screamed to their faces it’s their fault, don’t be shy

You should have bought your father slippers on the time it’s needed
Maybe he’d be happier would have bragged and smiled

Remember when the old man expected you to give
You overlooked what he needed you were so insensitive

Should have been more careful when you were pregnant with your child
Maybe she would have been here the family isn’t sad

You should have been this and you should have been that
More regrets coming in hurting pain makes you flat

Dear old self may you learn from all those “have beens”
And this time, oh this time make sure your life wins.

For You Aria

“Hush Hush, keep quiet you two, you will wake her up”
That should have been my line while you’re having a nap
Might scold your father and brother when making noise
For sure they’ll insist on bringing you toys

I could sip my coffee while you sleep and I’ll watch
I might be crocheting while you rest in my touch
That should have been what I’d do my child just for you
But you left us so soon and we’re longing it’s true

I could tell you stories from the books on the shelf
So that when you’re grown you’ll do it yourself
Papa and Kuya can watch alternately
You see they won’t stop until they see you cheerfully

You are our joy our cutie moonbeam
We have waited for you, you are our dream
But then now you’re gone what else can we do
But to weep and to mourn ’cause we’re longing for you

Aria, Aria dear, life is cold like the fog
Your absence in our lives is a real heavy log
Our dear child, dear Aria, our little girl so sweet
We will wait for the day when we’ll finally meet.

Angels and Demons

YES, it is true I am a combination
Like you I am an angel and a demon
A yin and a yang a black and a white
A mixture of a wrong and a right

Some days I’m easy at times I’m complicated
I won’t deny sometimes I’m doubted
Because I change my mind so quick
My moods depend on every flick

‘Cause I’m a woman who thinks a lot
Who won’t give up without a fight
I would debate before giving in
But I’ll accept mistakes within

I give respect to one who’s due
Earn it well if it’s for you
A high regard from me you’ll get
As long as you are doing great

Because we are all combinations
Of everything in moderations
And just like you yes I am one
Sometimes an angel sometimes a demon

A Good Choice-Me

He prefers three things strictly:
A good wife, a poet and a cup of coffee
With these he can converse with anyone happily

Disregards loud mouth and curses
Curses that hurt and provide pains
Hating unwise decisions and mess

He chose me among the rest.


We might die and leave the earth
But memories will stay with worth
We might die and leave them here
But our good deeds won’t disaappear

Like good old phoenix we will come back
When time is right we will fly back
For sure its us who else will be
But the phoenix of our family

For families value every thought
They care they love the ones they got
So we might die and leave the Earth
But memories will stay with worth.
