What a Day Brings

photo: ME

Days teach me
To always dream
Though it may never come true
But that's the best way
To live life through

Days teach me
To dream so high
There's no harm in trying one
Never give up and always try
Never let go or say goodbye

Days teach me
That when there is darkness
For sure, dawn is the next
And when everything is so tiring
Definitely, there would be time to rest

Days teach me
To always care for a friend
Always be true and never pretend
Always love with no end
And the broken hearts try to mend

Days teach me
Never to feel the hate
Always be confident and never hesitate
Always believe in fate
Holding on to my faith

Days teach me
That lovers meet and stay together
And others are apart
So if you are one who have been left behind
Don't cry and suffer... just search for a new start

Days teach me
The past I must forget
And nothing needs my regret
To open my heart and forgive
Cause that will help me to survive and live

Days teach me
To always offer my helping hand
Always be a Good Samaritan
And never doubt in people when there is no proof
And always try to understand

Days teach me
Not to be shy
If I have done something wrong
But to admit it and be proud that I have learned
A lesson that will help me to be strong

Para sa Aking Ina

A simple yet a very heartfelt Mother's Day poetry piece

photo: Jazy

Ngayon nakatayo ako sa harapan mo Ma
Lubos na nagpapasalamat sa iyong mga nagawa
Tanging ngiti mo lamang ang aking nakikita
Alam kung nahihirapan ka na,
Ngunit mas pinili mong mag patuloy pa
Kaya hinahangaan kita, Mama.

Ikaw ang nagsisilbing ilaw sa aming buhay
Mga ngiti mong parang bituin
Mga tawa mong nagpapangiti sa amin
Salamat, salamat dahil binigay ka sa akin
Alam ko na Alam mo na minsan gusto mo nang sumuko
Pero di mo matiis kasi gusto mo matupad ang mga pangarap ko.

Di mo ba alam ma na nangangarap din ako
Nangangarap na sana hanggang huli kasama kita at yakap ko
Na sana makita mo kong masayang tumanda ng dahil sa iyo.

I LOVE YOU SO MUCH MOMMY

Na kahit tumanda ka na
Aalalayan ka pa rin
Kahit umiiyak ka na
Pupunasan ko pa rin mga kuha mo
Kahit lisanin mo man ang mundo?
Nandito ka pa rin
Sa puso ko na
Walang sawang
Nagbibigay ng lakas at tibay sa akin.

A Poor Man's Lighthouse

A simple definition of how to love your neighbor.



I'm a man who rather live alone
Simply content with life but not a recluse
But there are those who find refuge
In a stranger's nest and build a new home.

There are courageous men who love adventures
With bold decisions, they earn some fortunes
But let me dwell near a slum environment
And be a brother to the disheartened

Let me dwell in a house near a slum environment
Where I could mingle with their daily movements
To foster fellowship among the good and the bad
A similar identity once I had.

I would not stay in a haven and complain
But be with the miserable and give encouragement
Let me dwell in a house near a slum environment
And be a brother to the disheartened.

My abode is a lighthouse to the outcast
It gives radiance to their highway of life
The man with dreams to escape the past
But are now struggling with today's strife.

I wonder where they get those smiles of enchantment
Perhaps it's their way of thanking the Lord's blessings
Let me dwell in a house near a slum environment
And be a brother to the disheartened.

Therefore, I would not build a dividing wall
So I can see and run towards them if they fall
Let me dwell in a house near a slum environment
And be a brother to the disheartened.

Three Precious Things

A simple Valentine note for my lovely wife.

photo: Beauty and the Beast

My love...

I have no money
not even a bed of honey
I own no stars
Its just asking too far
I can't give you the sun
That would only make me a clown
I can't give you the air that we breath
Possessing it, only God knows the secret

Apple of my eye... just three precious things that I can give you

I may not be rich to give you things so nice
But i give my heart without thinking twice
I may not own the stars
But my love is more precious than diamond jars
I may not give you air to breath
But you can take mine away if it means my death

Sweetheart.. just three treasured things you can have

My pure heart
My genuine love
And the right to take away my breath

Start Over

A man must trust God to start a new beginning.

photo by: Ting Sarmiento

When you've trusted God and
walked His way
When you've felt His hand lead you
day by day
But your steps now take you
another way ...
Start over.

When you've made your plans and
they've gone awry
When you've tried your best and
there's no more try
When you've failed yourself and
you don't know why ...
Start over.

When you've told your friends
what you plan to do
When you've trusted them and they didn't
come through
And you're all alone and its up to you ...
start over.

Aking Ligaya

photo: Joy

Habang nakahiga sa malamig kong higaan
Sa isip ko'y sumasagi... ating masayang nakaraan
Lalo na ng una kang masilayan
Nangungusap mong mga mata'y hindi ko maiwasan titigan.

Sarili ko'y nababalot sa kalungkutan... noong araw na yaon
Mundo ko'y gumuho... buhay ko'y nagugunaw
Ngunit ang iyong mga ngiti... nagdulot ng wagas na kasiyahan
Mga luha'y pinawi... ligaya'y aking nasumpungan.

Hindi maipintang saya'y aking naramdaman
Sa unang pagkakataon... ako'y iyong sulyapan
Kay sarap alalahanin ng bawat nakaraan
Ngunit kay lungkot isiping ito’y pawang mga alaala na lamang

Magbabalik pa kaya ang dati nating paglalambingan?
Pag ibig na tapat minsa'y nasumpungan
Magbabalik pa kaya ang bawat minsan?
At ika’y mananatili na sa aking mundo at hindi na lilisan.

Ikaw?!

Naranasan mo na bang mag mahal ng mali?
Nagmahal ka na ba ng may kahati?
Nang-angkin ka na ba ng pag aari ng iba?
Nagbigay ka na ba ng walang hinihinging kapalit?

photo: Joy

Bakit nga ba minsan may mga bagay na nagagawa tayo na hindi natin inaasahan magagawa pala natin?
Sino nga ba ang may gusto magmahal ng may kahati?
Sino nga ba ang may gustong maging pangalawa lang?
At sino nga ba gustong magmahal ng mali?

Bakit nga ba hindi mo maiwasan mahalin ang pag-aari ng iba?
Na kahit anong iwas mo hindi mo mapigilan?
Pikit mata mo na lang tinatanggap ang katotohanan
Makasama mo lang sya kahit sa konting sandali?

May pag-ibig na dumarating sa maling panahon at maling pagkakataon
Gustuhin mo man makasama sya hindi naman pwede
Minsan iniisip mo na sana sya ang kasama mo
Kasama mong bumuo ng mga pangarap at kasama mo hanggang sa pagtanda.

Sabi nga nila hindi lahat ng mga nagsasama ay nagmamahalan
At hindi lahat ng nagmamahalan ay magkasama
Mapaglaro ang tadhana... minsan akala mo nakita mo na ang taong gusto mong makasama sa habang buhay
Pero sa isang iglap may isang taong gugulo ng mundo mo na magpapabago ng pananaw mo.

Ano nga ba ang dapat at hindi? Ano nga ba ang tama at mali?
Kahit gaano ka katalino sa paraan at buhay, pagdating sa larangan ng pag-ibig mabobo at mabobo ka din
Dahil sa pag-ibig hindi naman utak ang ginagamit kundi PUSO
Kaya hindi mo mapipigilan o mapipili kung kanino ka magmamahal.

Mahirap itama ang mga pagkakamali lalo na kapag nagdudulot ito ng ligaya sa iyo
Subalit kung iisipin mo nga mas masarap tahakin ang tamang landas
Yung bang wala kang nasasaktan na iba
At wala kang nasisirang buhay.

Walang sinuman ang maaari mang husga sa taong nagmahal ng mali
Dahil lahat tayo ay may pagkakamaling nagawa
Ang mahalaga alam mo kung paano ka babangon
At itatama ang pagkakamaling iyong nagawa.

Minsan kailangan gawin ang tama kahit labag sya sa iyong kalooban
Ang pag-ibig naman kasi hindi yan makasarili
Hindi lang kaligayahan mo ang dapat mo sundin
Dapat isipin mo ang taong nasa paligid mo at ang tama.

Baka kailangan maging tapat ka lang sa iyong saloobin
Baka kailangan mo lang tanggapin sa sarili mo na...
"You have a right love at the wrong time"
Lahat naman pwede pero hindi lahat DAPAT.
