I Love Dearly as a Rose

I bring joy, love and compassion and no amount of hurt or disappointment will change that

 I am a lovely

luminous rose

just thinking

about you

spreading happiness

wherever one finds it

though fragile and delicate

I manage to find

a precious place in my heart

for you with my gentle

pervading

sweet perfume 

 

This old world that we’re livin’ in
Is might hard to beat.
You get a thorn with every Rose
But – ain’t the roses sweet?”
-Frank Stanton

 

Every rose has indeed its thorn. And as painful as it is when we are accidentally pricked by its thorn, we get closer to it and smell its sweet delicate scent and the pain would somehow go away. As we face covid 19; no matter how difficult the situation is and no matter how heartbreaking it seems, let us not forget that this too will go away. This too  will end. Remember every beautiful rose has its thorn. We will all heal together as one. Stronger, better, more resilient and lovely as a rose.

As we adore photos of beautiful flowers and flower gardens;  we also love to read poetry and prose about flowers and even nature. In just a few powerful words, our mind creates its own image and invigorates our senses, whisking us away to that endless flower field or basking in the sun with our hands in the garden.

There’s just something so intimate about letting our imaginations run freely.

So, as we are all locked  down in our homes let our imaginations run freely. You will never realize how good it will make you feel unless you try.

Sending more love and prayers to our frontliners💖💖💖🙏🙏
And flowers too to make them feel better

As Long As

IMG-5084c69a9ddec36ff9bb611e7d452425-V

I am a ray of sunlight slowly drifting away without you

As long as I have my dreams
as long as I have my thoughts
as long as I remember
I will love you

As long as my eyes can see
and  my ears can hear
and my lips can speak
I will love you

As long as my  heart feels
my soul stirs within me
my imagination will hold you
I will love you

As long as  time exist
as long as love is true
as long as there is you
as long as I breath
of love and affection
I will love you
because
you love me too

 

No man is an island – Thomas Merton

Our mental health, emotional health as well as our personal well being are tied up in the quality of our personal relationships. The more closely we are connected to the people we love and adore the happier we feel and the more personal satisfaction and contentmenr we have in our lives. Most people say that the connection and shared enjoyment with their loved ones are their most important life experiences.

It is from the web of our relationships and connections with other people that we draw our strength. Such communities can lift us when we are down and give us the capacity to deal with whatever challenges come our way.

Sadly, with the current health crisis we are facing, these special and important relationships we have are being put at test. The situation has separated us from our love one and even our friends. And whether we like it or not the simple handshake and a kiss on the cheeks will no longer be observed for as long as we dont know yet.

This is our new normal now. Away from home; separated from our love ones; no gestures of love and no endearing moments.

I Miss You

IMG-20190818-WA0001

I am an empty chair amidst a lovely veiw without you

 

its most painful that i miss you
a silent ache cries out my heart
unbearable, thoughts of you
makes it harder to breath

 

the saddest part is i know
you are out there somewhere
but i cannot look into your eyes
and say how badly i want you
at this point

 

missing you is the sweetest
yet most heart breaking pain
i taste my own tears
even when i smile

 

and my life  appears
worse than anything
I miss you and
its absolute pain

 

P.S.

Sending more love and prayer to all our frontliners and to all those who are away from home and from their love ones 💗💗💗

 

Heartbeat

My heartfelt prayers to all our frontliners and to all whose fighting to survive covid 19

We will all be home soon…❤❤❤

Come Rain and Sunshine

20200308_071802

(I am a dark sky without you)

 

hear me as i cry for your sweet agonizing ray
i beg the sun to shine
as you stay by in thine.
oh, rain came weeping down
as blood oozes
through my vein
yearning
for your
sweet embrace
no, not this time
never my love,
for no one is bound to know
how prepared i can be
when you go
forever will i be doomed

please, don’t
never go
stay
just for a moment

come rain and sunshine
in darkness and in light
all through my life
i will love thee
eternally forever
yours
Now i beg, rain please don’t go!

 

 

P.S.

We rememeber and pray for all those mourning the demise of a love one because of Covid 19. We also remember and pray for all those who can’t be with their love ones in this moment of darkness.

To be alone is sad; to be sick and alone is even devastating

More love on your way guys as we face the current health scare💓💓💓

Stay at home. Stay healthy. And remember in time, we will all be fine again.
 
Be safe☺

Longing for You

’twas like nightmares
trying to scream
and nothing comes out
no matter how hard
you try

’twas like drowning
trying
to breath
underwater
and you can’t
simply can’t

’twas like missing a step
your foot is suspended
in air, you know
it should felt
solid ground

but you
have no idea
what’s happening
if you ever feel solid ground again
or you’ll just fall forever
longing just to be near you feels like that

This week’s World of Words prompt, “kahidlaw”, a Bisaya word which means “deep longing”.
Every week, Rosemarie (of A Reading Writer), Maria (of Doodle Scribbles), and Jade will post a word from a different country. world.https://jademwong.wordpress.com/2020/03/23/poetry-reunion/
The current virus scare has left most of us locked down at home. But sadly, it has also left some families apart too.

Most of us if not all miss home; but most of those at home miss the world outside.

Sending more love guys 💗💗💗

The One That Got Away

she went away
unnoticed
unannounced
unceremoniously

you were left
bleeding
longing
asking

you never told her
that she was the tomorrow
you always
wished for;
the what if and
could’ve been you have
lived with
every day

you never told her
that for a moment,
she was
the flicker of sunlight
against your
indigo sky;
that for a time,
it felt as if
you have held stars
on the palm of
her hand
perhaps she was
the bullet you dodged,
but she’ll always be
the one that got away

until then
