Letter To A Love That Got Away

I wake up each day thinking about the what ifs
Regrets are piling up, I wish to turn back the days
But decision was made, sadly I’m now adrift
This is for the love I now badly want to stay

With you I was free yet it seemed it was a crime
With you I thought I had finally found the one
If only we’d met in a different lifetime…
This is for the love I wish I’d fought for then won

So I’m sorry, love, it was brief but not a mistake
I had to accept it was meant to go astray
Yet here I am, still living with could haves and aches
This is for my true love that had gotten away

Let’s dance underneath the moonlight
Let’s enjoy playing with our shadows while they last
Let’s be fascinated with the disappearing glow
Then hold my hand and together let’s go
Let us go into the darkness
Where we cannot see anything
But the illumination of our spirits
Let our senses be awakened
Let our souls be ignited
Let our hearts be united
Just hold me close and let us stay still
Then let’s surrender everything…
Everything to the darkness
And soon we’ll know what it means…

Come, hurry, let’s enjoy
Let’s dance in this shadowless night
Let’s listen to the music from our hearts
Then embrace me and let’s become one
Becoming one with the darkness…

And then soon we shall find light

Why Do You Write / Bakit Ka Nagsusulat?

IMG00351-20130102-1811

Why do you write?
Is it for the likes
To earn money
Is it just a hobby
Or just because

What if the end is near?
Ideas are running out
There are no more words
The fire is dying down
What’s left is only residue

Can you still write?
Even without an audience
Are you changing your ways to conform
Or would you just let it go
Then accept the faded dream

So why am I still writing?
Because this is why I’m breathing
Until the last drop of my ink
Even if there’s no one who reads
Because writing is my happiness

Bakit ka nagsusulat?
Para ba sa likes
Para ba kumita
Libangan kaya
O dahil wala lang

Eh paano kung hanggang dun na lang?
Naubos na ang mga ideya
Wala ng mga salita
Upos na ang kandila
Latak na lang ang asa utak

Kakayanin mo pa bang magsulat?
Kahit wala namang nagbabasa
Babaguhin mo ba ang likha para sa iba
O hahayaan na lang maiga
At tanggapin ang paglaho ng pangarap

Eh bakit pa rin ako nagsusulat?
Dahil dito ako humihinga
Pipigain hanggang sa huling tinta
Kahit pa walang mambabasa
Dahil pagsusulat ng aking ligaya

My fate, my destiny, it’s now clearer
My life long search is finally over
No more worries, my fears are now conquered
This is for a love that I’ve discovered

I was lost once then you showed me the way
You are the sun that brightens up my day
No more darkness; light will forever stay
This is for the true love that’s now at play

So thank you, dear, for this amazing blast
You’re the one – my soulmate that I have asked
To infinity and beyond, we will last
This is for the love that I’ve found at last

Letter To A Lost Love

You stole my time by thinking of you
I was a mess, didn’t know what to do
You followed me, haunted me like a ghost
This is for the love that I had once lost

Then with all the tears I became stronger
You made me realize I have such power
You showed me the rainbow after the rain
This is for the lost love that gave me pain

So thank you, love, for all the heart ache
It was worth it, it was all for my sake
You set me free; myself, I’ve come to know
This is for the love that I’m now letting go

What If

sleeping baby

What if you were just a pigment of my dream?
What if the life I’ve known with you was unreal?
Slowly, my world, my life will start to dim
My heart will be broken, it will never heal

For now I’ve learned to enjoy this life with you
I have a new purpose and that’s to see you grow
So what if I was just imagining you?
Then please hold me close and don’t ever let go

Or take me back to my dream where you were there
Then I will hug you, lock you in my embrace
Then don’t wake me up, I’ll stay until forever
So I can be with you in this happy place

I Love…

I love smelling your hair, it smells like baby powder
I love kissing your forehead, pinching your nose
I love wiping your tears whenever you cry
I love seeing your toothless grin, your cute little smile
It always melts my heart, I forget that I’m tired

I love holding your hands, rubbing your belly
Whenever you push and try to do number two
It seems that I’m helping you but it’s all on you
I love changing your diapers, wiping your butt
I even made a song, please remeber that

I love writing you poems and songs to sing for you
I love teaching you 123s and ABCs
I love playing with you, reading you books
I love the way you listen to all stories I tell
You seem to understand all things that I say

I love the way you sneeze, you cough, and you yawn
And how you fart like you are a big human being
I love tickling you and massaging your legs
I love your scared look whenever we bathe you
Then how happy you are whenever we dress you

I love how you hate burping when you’re still hungry
I love how drunk you are after each feeding
I love how you can sleep soundly on my chest
I love watching you sleep and dream at night
And when you have nightmares, I love soothing your cries

I love how you stretch your short little arms
Then you make these grunts like you have a hard life
I even love your tantrums like you’ve been neglected
Then how you talk to us as if you know all the words
And how you tell your dadsi about your day

I love seeing you grow, becoming a lady
I love waiting for the day you’ll take your first step
I love that God gave you to us and touch our lives
I love you, I love everything about you
But if there’s one thing I don’t love…
It’s I don’t love missing you
