Eyes…

look into my eyes
are they full of heartaches
or overflowing with love

do you see the tears in hiding
between my mind
and this caressing heart

look into my being
i have a soul to care
fastened to my prayers

lead my sight into
does it see only the near

or farther and beyond

how you rely upon me
taking all of these at face value
pushing aside trust as an issue

you know what all of these mean
the echoes you have in mind
are what my eyes clearly define…

Fibers

fibers of your present life
intertwine each passing day,
a new design leads to another
different patterns to display

each walk of life that we step on
is an account of greatness we carry on
the summation of its intact finality
is a measure of how we finished with dignity

which path you’ll have to tread
isn’t easy as what it was said
life’s hues may sometimes vary
God’s intended plan you can’t choose any

designs of life reveal its forms
luck is headed to some promised open doors
it’s upon you if you’ll brave the raging storms
or let destiny run its destined usual course…

Coffee cup…

This coffee is for me
I made it…

Like my life now
I live it

Others may say
Destiny have fixed it…


I’ve known you
sweet as honey
bees have dropped by
feasted the pollen grains

bees have departed
you endured the hurt
and time was wasted
in cleaning the dirt

gone like summer rains
that never fell
like waters in the river
that has bid farewell

but now, you have reasons to smile
as I am the bee who will reconcile
and I’m here not ready to give up
I feel your lips on the lid

of my coffee cup…

when i forget the time
i think no more of the past
i live in the current life
doing the things that i must
my future waits somehow
the fruition of good seeds and deeds
what i have planted today
are my pillars of tomorrow
that will secure my being

a picture of yesterday…

Tellers…

deposited a bundle of truth
fifty thousand when counted
in a bank where tellers
look like a bunch of demons
next day i returned
deposited a thousand lies
tellers have changed looks
to olden angels without skies
three days after
i brought ten piggy banks
ten thousand honest coins
infant tellers have joined the ranks

Come with me and let’s fly
let’s circle the world with our wings
Take me in your dreams
i’ll make you my queen
Together we’ll live in a castle
and i’ll be your king

Tonight let’s make it happen
to be the man and woman
A family for us to raise
with God for us to praise
Let’s build a kingdom of our own
no one should ever replace you on your throne

Together as the night is still awake
let our kingdom come
Together let us soar to the sky
and reach the summit of eternity
Let’s dream the dream
and make this a reality…

If you won’t come…

Tonight, as I close my eyes
i’ll forget about my fears
i’ll send them to the clouds
and let the rains fall as tears

And when the morning comes
i’ll let the flowers bloom
to its brightest colors
and drive away my gloom

I’ve been missing you
for sometime my love
I will be at the entrance door
to give my heartfelt welcome kiss

But if you won’t come
to be back in my embrace
i’ll give you back the flowers
and a cup of my tears…

Grieve in private or….we could die in numbers

_____________________________



virtual goodbyes from faces
whose tears are flowing from afar
unembraced goodbyes separated by ropes
distanced from miles away by car


a selected few of chosen attendees
made a traffic of flying hugs and kisses
in the skyway of imagining traffic lights
gestures were done our virtual first and last goodbyes

we were born only to die

dying is our final place to hide
but it is so painful to be lost today
to be grabbed by the virus and taken away

bye-bye to our loved ones, adios
wherever you might be, in heaven or hell

catch our sweet kisses in the sky
God knows we’ve said our last goodbyes…

____________________
the meaning of being lost
in a world of fantasy
it’s not a secret anymore
’cause there’s love between you and me

i did it all before
to be in a place so heavenly
i hide it all alone
in illusions and imaginations

now i know that there’s love
in a pretending lonely heart
now i know that your heart beats mine
not in fantasy anymore

days are brighter now than ever
the light has shone on a stormy weather
now i couldn’t build the castles in the air
your love has been and always be fair …

I Believe

my mind is singing some songs
i know not which to finish
there are songs of love
and great admiration
songs of hate and separation

unfinished tunes in my mind
i know not which to sing again
right in the middle of every chant
i know not which to say the lines
happy or sad goodbye defines

to end some songs i choose
some scenes i need to see
which among those apply to me
those quotes where i’ve been through
life’s worldliness i believe is true…
