Could you be my Valentine?

as i sit alone on my bed
thinking about the days that passed
it’s been three days after we’ve met
felt like three years have already gone past

since the day i asked for your name
your smile was just unforgettable
Angel as you are called by friends
the feeling was just unexplainable

our parting words then, “see you in a week”
but i had hoped it could be sooner and quick
feeling a bit romantic here on my bed
i kissed your number in my CP where i kept

tomorrow is the day for us to meet
ready to go with some cash saved in my pocket
i practiced the lines the way i will greet
should i embrace, shake hands, or offer you a seat

i’ve marked the calendar, Sunday the fourteenth
i’m twenty-one and you’re young at nineteen
can you be my date, please don’t decline
it’s the Day of Hearts, “Could you be my Valentine?”

please look at me one more time

before you say goodbye

leave a kiss on my lips

before my eyes start to cry

bring my heart as you go

and remember the things that we do

’cause the feeling still will show

beneath the smile that you throw

my nights will be colder now

as you walk away from me

my thoughts of you will remain

in my heart, I love you just the same…

it’s hard to find
what i’m searching from the abyss
of my thoughts

i had painted
a searching glance
a searching mind

i had breathed
a searching wind
a searching break

the you passed by
a single look
then remembered

it’s was you i searched
in my mind and in my heart
in you i found LOVE…

I offered my tears…

it was heavy

the burden,

the load i carried



my knees were shaking

as if to break

into pieces



and i felt her from the sun

and touched her final warmth

embracing her all over



sadness wasn’t overran

after i shed some precious tears

it happened as i feared my own fears



i heard my cries and sobs

as i ran my hands over my eyes

she bade her last goodbye of goodbyes



“I offered my tears to You

I collected them with my palms

I beg You to bring back my wife’s life…”

in Your direction…

I kept it to myself
I was bruised and crushed to the ground
I was bleeding inside

Someone
scarred my heart
but it will mend

Someone
battered my state of mind
but my judgment will still be morally right

Though the pain has remained unseen
I still have an open vein
writhing in perennial pain

Other people speak ill of me
Releasing dirty names on me
I turned my back pretending no one was there

I looked up to the sky
And held my head in Your direction
saying, “Forgive them for they don’t know what they’re doing.”

Dusts of Rain…

dusts so fine settled in my mind

floating as light as my soul

by the wind’s painful cry, it was blown



of little worth as they seem to be

burial ground of decayed bodies of creation

ashes to ashes, to dusts you will return



the medley of sad and happy dusts

like the clouds
from anywhere
they came

adrift in the sky, dark and heavy, to fall as rain




if i was the cause of the pains in your heart

sobbing eyes that shed a million tears

time has given the chances to heal

the rains have fallen, the skies are cleared

Two of us…

i let go with your own mistakes

a grinning smile is all that it takes

your being mad always pass me by

there’s no use to fight not even a try

you’ve thrown me plates and you’ve missed

but I’ve thrown you back a flying kiss

don’t know why i can’t do a revenge

hugging you is all that i can avenge

hurting me seems to be forever

but it makes my love grow stronger

why this feeling doesn’t get furious

to be mad at you the reasons are obvious

i can’t have anybody and set you free

the two of us anytime will be three…

My gift is a song for you…

I’ll gather all the melodies to hum

From the other places of the world

With tunes so hard to bring into mind

And harmony so tough to build and find


Tiring thoughts have me catch some forty winks

Dream of cherubs and seraphs with heavenly links

They would assist and guide my feeble hands

To write the words and buzz without the bands



This is all I can offer to please you

To dedicate a song meant to caress you

Once this lovely piece is over and done

My heart will sing for you and to everyone



Gather all the kings and queens young and old

Bringing with them some gifts of glaring gold

From palaces and kingdoms in glittering grandeur

Mine is a song with love in splendored millionfold …
