Two hands and
Fingers rubbing against each other
Seemingly in a hurry
On form-fitted shapes
Is where he runs
Nowhere to go
And will arrive at nothing
The lighted fire
The golden light
A light in every step
Looking down at a flight of stairs
Holding on to the rails
Destitute, so he can't boast.
Reaching the top, it will be measured
What he learned from life
Under the shade of the sun.
Tonight, as I sleep
My mind wanders
You reached out your hand to mine as a gift,
Comforting and compassionate.
For your presence and for keeping me
In my sleep, let it become my blanket
Your love and care.
At the ridge, it did
what transpired through the night.
at the lake
was made to skip,
Fate and love has many faces. We see these in life.
AS I WAIT
For your return
My dear, I'm longing
To feel your warm kiss
Even in my waiting
Dear, don't be lonely
My heart is yours only
I'm giving you my time
I give every moment
Every deed and action and
Every thought and consciousness
Thank you for coming to my life
My wish was granted
To again experience
my heart being reared
At the front of your house
I passed by
My foolish and humble thoughts are
about wanting to see you
Through the glass window
I am hoping
An image of a goddess
Longing to hear your voice
That will soar through the wind
A voice that is sweet
These are what I long for
A HEART'S LEAP
A smile welcomed a man
That peeped behind the veil
His heart skipped and leaped knowing
That he should not let this pass
Now it's proven true
Love at first sight
Two lovers vowed
To nurture their love
In the promise of every morning
They will live peacefully and fluorish
Their love to each other
Until evening comes
We revolve around God's grace and love. Be blessed.
BOUND BY FAITH
"We'll go up to the mountains but we shall return soon",
This is what you told your helper
We will go to where we were told
Your heart is at peace and is still
I carried the wood and went our way,
“Father, I have a question in mind”.
You replied, “He has provided for us a sacrifice,
Let’s have faith together”.
As I lay down the altar
You securely tied my hands
My heart was clenched when the fire was lit
Your love for Him was earnest
A voice soared from the heavens,
Don’t lift a hand on me neither hurt me
I understood your fear to God who gave you
A son you can willingly sacrifice
My life is a blessing by your love
Saved from a definite tragedy
My seeds were blessed among the nations
Because together, we had faith.
ON TOP OF THE WATER
Sliced by the blade, penetrated the crevice
Light exploded, the meadow shone
In the hearts of all, a smile sprung
In the hopes of realizing one's desire
A hope for something he can't see
He believed first before he saw
Indeed, a higher form of believing
He had faith and walked on top of the water
He looked back to the past, studied every step
Even if he failed, missed and was flawed
He focused his eyes to the hands reaching for him
From the raging waters, he was lifted up
Days are elusive, it slips by so fast
A note that consciousness, easily deflates
Making us remember to give our life
To the One who walked on water and reached out His hand for us.
FIVE LOAVES OF BREAD, TWO FISH
Parting the dust by his small feet
Every step with innocence, so he can go near
A mind that is simple, with one motive
To share his self to others who believe
He gazed through the eyes that were looking
To that of which he was carrying
It may be just enough for his tiny stomach
Five loaves of bread and some fish
Like a droplet of water in a pail
If you will compare it to the size of the crowd
For it to be distributed and shared
To the mind of the child, it is not foolishness
A little child with big faith
Jutted through those who were shortsighted
Not fully understanding if what he has is enough
To be given to everyone
Tiny, innocent, of no consequence, useless
Are what the others see without caution
But his obedience was rewarded
With humility and satisfaction
On the road he is taking,
His heart rumbled.
On the vastness of thought,
A preview of a tempest.
He gathered his strength
Before he released
the feelings being hold
In his thoughts
The humble life of a man
reserved for himself.
Then a fire was lit
To serve others.
Designed to be of service
What his hands created
to the commands of the Creator
The passionate waves racing against each other
Convergent with my mind at peace
The gentle drops of the rain
Are excited to touch the face of the island
At the deepest night are skipping
Stars countless in the sky
Moving together with the world spinning
Your great creations cannot be exchanged for anything
The light sprung, morning has broken
The golden sun rested on the clouds
New hope is delivered as I awake
Your love is always there for me
You are great, God, who creates!
So great are your creations!
Praise you, our God! our God!
Praise you our great God!
