My Angel

Angel

You gave me hope

when everything

has been lost,

my heart was stone

my soul was dark

you were the light

your love was my beacon

 

You gave my direction

when everything was everywhere

I was lost

I was confused

you were the compass

your patience was my star

 

Your time

revived me

refreshed me like no other

helped me find my way

to the arms of love

 

You saved me

a world of turmoil

was all I knew

you brought order to chaos

and

the end of the tunnel I saw

like the missing piece of a puzzle

you completed me,

made me whole.

Faith of the Heart

Mountains, hills,

streams, and banks

they all block the way

but

keep going

keep moving,

you’ll be

pushing mountains

before you know it.

 

Never give up,

rest if you must;

every journey counts

every trek is worthwhile

keep the fire burning

keep the waves alive

you’ll be finished soon enough,

success will be yours

if you keep at it.

 

Live, love, laugh

rejoice, cry, jump

all these you will feel

all these you will know

as long as you go on

as long as you walk on

then great things will come

believe and it will be.

 

Trust yourself,

trust your dream

it is hard

it is painful

life always is;

don’t let it keep you down

fight with everything you’ve got

then you’ll reach your goals

then you’ll reach your star.

A Coward’s Foray

You

who made me

believe

in love again

cured

my wounded heart

showed me

the path

to ever after

once more,

you

who made me

laugh and love

with my

whole heart again

you

who made me

the way

I was once more –

you

broke my heart

shattered

it to pieces

I

have never

felt

lonelier than now

as I feel

love slowly

fade away,

to be

the person

I was

when we met.

Why

was I

foolish

to think,

to hope?

Love

is nothing

but a game,

a gamble,

a risk

and

I am

but a

coward,

fleeing

at the

challenge.

A Love Story

Take my hand
take my soul
conquer me, my love
I submit to your heart;
mesmerize me under the stars
awaken my deepest desires,
know my passions
unleash my dreams
let us be united
let us be bound
for I am yours
and you are mine.

Remembering
our romantic walks,
late night talks
some of love’s recipes
we enjoyed;
our picnics by the lake
cuddles by a tree’s shade
picture perfect memories
captured under the sun’s soft rays;
that day
you gave me your hand
you gave me your soul
I conquered you honey,
you submitted to my heart
I knew then it has began
forever, you and I
for you are now mine
and I will be irrevocably yours.

Never Alone

It was all so sudden. Aileen still feels like she is in a nightmare.

“May God welcome him into his kingdom…” Fr. Valdez looked sober enough while saying those words but was all those true?

Memories of the past flooded her mind. They were coming home from the grad ball. The sky was sparkling with stars; the wind was warm enough to excite the senses but had a bit of a chill for some cuddling with that special person. It was one of those nights that people read in books and watched in movies.

Next week was the graduation but it was not the only reason why her spirits were up. That night, under the diamonds of the sky, Jeff proposed and she accepted.

She wanted to decline at first but looking in his eyes she saw her future and all else faded. This is her destiny. Then, in a horrid twist of fate, she was robbed.

“Why did he have to arrive at the exact moment we made a turn?” Aileen wondered aloud. Her voice was full of hatred and tears welled in her eyes.

“It was that damned drivers fault. Him and his damn truck and damn alcohol.” Aileen said as she absent-mindedly beat the gravestone with the flowers she brought. Hopelessly, she lay next to it and tenderly traced Jeff’s name.

Tonight was the same night as last year but now, she’s alone. All alone with no one to comfort her. Weeping silently, she gazed at the stars twinkling brightly at her. She hated those stars; their seeming cheerfulness feels like they’re mocking her.

Suddenly at the corner of her eyes she saw something different. It glowed brighter than the rest but something in it seemed to comfort her. It felt like it was watching over her as if it were her very own star.

“The north star,” a voice behind her said.

Aileen carefully stood up and smiled at Mang Pedro, the cemetery caretaker.

“The north star is the brightest of all the stars,” he continued. “It doesn’t sparkle that much but it offers comfort to those in grief.”

Aileen stared at it, feeling hope surge through her for the first time since the tragedy. “Could it be my star?” she shyly asked. “My guiding light?”

Mang Pedro smiled sympathetically and lightly touched Jeff’s gravestone. “It can be anything you want.” Winking, he turned around and headed towards his cottage.

Aileen sighed and looked back at the once nameless star. She still feels empty inside but the star was starting to warm her heart. She knew now – she will never be alone again.
