Away From You

It feels weird that you’re not here beside
I’m adapting but I miss you terribly
I miss your warmth, hugging me tenderly
Being away from you is killing me

As time goes by it will be easier
But I’m afraid you would not remember
The past year that we spent together
Just you and me creating forever

Please be safe and happy, that’s what I pray
Then I’ll be fine, I’ll make it through the day
If there’s a miracle to find the way
I still wish to be with you or make you stay

This Moment

This is the moment I dreaded
This is the hardest thing ever
And I ask where are we headed
Despite knowing it’s for the better

I want this day to never end
Freeze time when I’m holding you tight
Have an eternity to spend
But we must say goodbye tonight

I know we both need this to grow
If only I could stay, be with you
But it’s now time to let you go
Yet I’m just here, still loving you

A Year Ago

A year ago, 8 pounds of delight arrived
Wrapped with innocence, she made us feel alive
Bundled with pure smile, she marked a beginning
Of new inspiration, purpose and meaning

A year ago, a present came from above
A 20 inch gift swaddled with joy and love
A blessing that will forever be treasured
A real happiness that cannot be measured

A year ago, Alisha Nini was born
My life’s been better, it will never be scorned
Our baby, you always make things beautiful
And to God, I’ll be eternally grateful

I Am Here

Why are you scared, my dear?
It’s a new world, I know
I’m beside you, I’m here
I won’t leave, I won’t go
And I promise you…

Chorus 1:
I will never leave you
I am just here
I’ll forever hold you
Locked in my embrace

Or you can take my hand
I’ll wipe away your tears
Then together we’ll stand
Let’s drive away your fears
And I promise you…

Chorus 2:
I will never leave you
I am just here
You are always safe here
Here in my arms

You are always safe here
Here in my arms…

One With The Flowers

A smile with her dimple
Can wash away my trouble
Like poppies that are blooming
A hope that’s everlasting

Her contagious happiness
Reminds me that I am blessed
Like tulips in spring time
A beauty that is sublime

Her pure, genuine laughter
Soothes me, it makes me better
Like the scent of roses
A fragrance of calmness

Her ever glowing light
Changes all wrong to right
A source of life and power
She is one with the flowers

My Second Chance

Writer’s Note: I wrote this when my baby fell from the bed. Our floor is not carpeted but I put comforter and pillows on it. Thank God she was fine.

It was not real
As I cried and cried
I knew I could never go back
I could never turn back the time
To save you
To protect you

I just let it happened
You fell and I wasn’t there
You were scared
I abandoned you
I betrayed your trust
I failed you

I thank God, Jesus and your angel
For looking after you
For giving us a second chance
I promise to make amends
I promise I’ll be better
I love you so much

Can your forgive me?
Can you take my hand again?
I will do my best to keep you safe
I won’t ever leave
My life, I will offer to you
If only to not lose you

Letter To The Extension Of My Soul

Since you’ve come, my world has found a different meaning
A beautiful, amazing new life is unfolding
It’s divine! The epitome of inspiration
This is for the love that defies all my confusion

Every time you smile or laugh, you melt my heart and all
Then the time I heard you cry, my tears can’t stop to fall
So I promise to take care of you ’til you say never
This is for the love I vow to be with forever

So thank you, baby, you are a gift, a rare blessing
You are the only one who fills my every longing
I am now complete. With you, I am finally whole
This is for the love that’s an extension of my soul
