My Loves

heart

Whenever you smile

whenever you laugh

my life is worthwhile

my life becomes complete

 

My two greatest blessings

my two greatest loves,

you fill my heart with joy

my world is full

 

Together you are perfect,

together I overflow

I pray to God

this never shatters,

my wonderful world filled with

toddler shrieks

and daddy talks.

A Mother’s Heart

mother-daughter-love-sunset-51953.jpeg

Before I had my son, I didn’t know I could love as much as I do now. Friends kept asking me, “What changed?” and during my son’s early months, I couldn’t answer them. I think the change came gradually. Before I knew it, everything that I did was because of my son and for my son. My thoughts and life purpose is consumed by him.

I never knew love as pure and as overwhelming as I look upon my son. He has become not only my world but my life. Sometimes when I hold him, hug and kiss him, I feel as if my heart is going to burst from so much love for him. I think all mothers would agree with me when I say that our heart has grown exponentially just to accommodate this humongous love we have and feel for our child/children. I look at my son and I could see all of my hopes and dreams in this little guy. He has become the personification of all my hopes and dreams. It’s like falling in love for the very first time. The kind of love that you discover the first time, without any pain and heartbreak.

Like all mothers, I know I will never get tired of my child. He, along with his father, is the love of my life and my world. I know nothing is perfect but my life now with my son is close to it. It doesn’t, and will never, get any better than this.

If Only

I close my eyes

rainbows and

fairies I see

imagine what

the world will be

if

hate and prejudice would cease

if everyone

will

make-up and kiss

and

understanding will flow,

tolerance will be everywhere.

I close my eyes

flowers and

meadows I see

imagine what

the world will be

if

racism and pride doesn’t exist

if everyone

will

hug and hold hands

and love will flow,

hope will abound.

All About Love

Hi everyone! I think every writer has a million and one ideas floating around their heads. Yes, even as they are already writing their short story, novel, or poems. I’m not any different. As I was finishing my first poetry novel, UNMASKED, a not so original idea popped into my head – why not make my second poetry novel about love? Yup, I wasn’t even sure if my first poetry novel would sell and I was already thinking about my next book. One with a not so new story idea to boot! Haha!

Anyway, I did give it some thought and as I was browsing through other poetry novels, I grew more and more reflective on the topic of love. I didn’t want my second book to be just another compilation on romantic love. As the weeks wore on, I finally came to the idea that I would indeed write about love but not just the romantic kind. I want to write about all kinds of love.

Yup, kind of ambitious isn’t it? Well, as they say, always reach for the moon, even if you miss you’ll be among the stars 😉 In a nutshell, my second poetry book will be about love in all its forms – unrequited, romantic, enduring, family love, the love we give ourselves, and the love for nature and humanity – and the feelings it evokes.

Hopefully, I will be up to the challenge. As with all my writing projects, I am very excited with this one and I hope you will continue to be with me in this new journey. ^_^

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.

Little Angels

I just learned that a dear friend lost her baby and it is by far the saddest news I have received these past months. I cannot begin to comprehend the amount of pain my friend felt upon hearing the news and I have no words that are good enough to comfort her. This poem is wholeheartedly dedicated to her and to all the moms (and dads) who lost a child. No one should ever go through that kind of experience but these people do and I hope they know that they are not alone. We may never know how painful this experience is for them but we will always be here to listen, hug, and to simply be there for them.

How do you
comfort
a mother
who isn’t?
There will never
be the right words,
right affection,
right hug
when a life
has been torn,
when no explanation
has been said.
A love in
its purest,
ethereal,
transcendent;
a love
beyond
time
deep
raw,
true;
a bond
that will never break,
a bond
even death
cannot severe.
When her pain
runs deep,
when her womb
refuses to forget
how can you comfort
a mother who isn’t?
How can you comfort
the strongest person
she will become?
She is all beauty
grace,
and splendour now
as what was lost
will forever
watch over her.
