Feeling the grip…

“As I opened my eyes this morning, I saw the first ray of sunshine pushing its way through the thin curtain of my room’s window. It was immaculately solemn as I felt the first wave of warmness when I turned off the electric fan as I stood up from my bed.

The merry Christmas climate is making a headway through, however, it’s not as very “christmasy” as we still have to fight the greatest battle we’re facing, the pandemic. Two months to go before the nativity, the Yuletide season is moving closer in a turtle’s pace. We are dragging a heavy weight pulling ourselves away from this struggle. A lot of people are feeling the grip of the virus. It’s like our feet are being tied in a corner and let other people feed us to survive.

I just hope that the first ray of sunshine that made a dramatic rush into my room will be a sign of hope for a lot of people around the world to survive and pass this pandemic wall with optimism and confidence to rise again and begin on mounting other episodes of the remaining chapters of our lives. “

I Love You More…

I tread the byways with cold sweat
On a lonely foggy Monday night
To the place where my heart leads
To the tide where love never recedes

Thoughts of your smiles abound with sweets
Dreamy nights afloat even on dusty streets
You have more than a Mona Lisa can possess
More mysterious than her smile, no less

Lovely roses, pink and white
Fresh as the morning drops of dew
In my hand I held them tight
The scent leads me to your daring light

Your troubled nights can’t be dark again
In my arms you lay your worries to drain
Twilight will retreat with sudden burning pain
‘Cause I’ll bring the sunrise cheerfully to fame

As I promised you, I will comply
To deliver my words to your door
This heart will warm the cold ocean floor
You said you love me but, I love you more
