I Love You

This is not the season of love …but I just don’t know why…for some weird inexplicable reasons I am being compelled to write about …..well…LOVE…

It suddenly made me remember the day I realized I too, was in love…the first time I saw him…the first time we spoke…everything seems just like yesterday because I keep such precious memories constantly alive in my mind…

 

a strange thing inside;

creeping through outside.

inexplicably bizarre;

truly peculiar.

a yearning to cry;

wanting to try.

humbly keeping;

patiently crawling.

a sentiment so pure;

believing so sure.

beautifully affectionate;

tenderly passionate.

a moment so phenomenal;

amazing and sensational.

wonderfully screaming;

perfectly loving.

P.s.

Love is as beautiful as a peacock when it opens up its tail…..(technically, only males are peacocks, females are peahens and together they are called  peafowl…in case you’re not aware..)

Wedding Vow

One of my college students whom I have never seen for quite a while invited me to be a part of her entourage for her wedding day…

I’ve always been fascinated by weddings and the joy that it brings to two people in love who wanted to spend the rest of their lives together…

It is also a manifestation that we are still leaving in a world where true love reigns…

I do…

I could sing you a song,

I could stay with you for a long…

The melody may not be strong,

But I could be with you in my song.

I could write you a poem so dear,

I could hold you in my arms so near…

The words may not be like that of Shakespeare’s,

But it is what my heart yells so much oh, so dear.

I could create your image so gay,

I could kiss you so long and make your stay…

The picture may not be perfect they will say,

But I know it will make you so happy today.

I could stop the clock for a while,

I could make you hold me with a smile.

The thought may be actually whimsical,

But I know love is all that is magical.

 

Just the thought that you’ve finally found the one you wish to spend the rest of your life with is something that is so exciting and wonderful. Everything felt so natural.  You might even say that you don’t know what it is about that person that drives you closer to each other- it might be the combination of a great sense of humor, charming personality, good looks…whatever it is, you can sense its presence. I could call it chemistry or better yet the possibility that you are on the same wavelength…who knows…Image

Well, whatever it is really…here’s wishing you all that one day soon you’ll find your one true love. And when you found it never let it go….

We may fall in love many times in our lifetime but we would only have one greatest love…

Keep the love alive!!!!

I Miss You

IMG_2721

many years had passed

yet thoughts of you linger

your memories, so clear

I can hold you clear.

I miss you, I know for sure!

many years had passed…

the scent of you lingers,

running through the air,

I can kiss you near.

I miss you, I know for sure!

many years had passed…

your soft cuddly touch embraces,

creeping through my being,

I can get closer even a thing.

I miss you, I know for sure!

many years had passed…

hearing your sweet voice,

sincerely saying, “I love you, baby”,

I can say ” I love you too, just stay”.

I miss you, I know for sure!

Three years had passed

leaving me by surprise,

I was hurt, I was broken,

I can cry, I can scorn.

I miss you, I know for sure!

many years had passed…

on this day in a mass,

I spoke to say goodbye,

a daughter’s eulogy, and lullaby.

I miss you DAD, I know for sure!!

 

 

P.S.

It’s been three years dad, and I am still missing you. I hope you’re happy up there…Oh by the way.Happy Birthday too!!

Thank You

You give me sight when I can’t see,

You grant me sound when I can’t hear,

You offer me warmth when I can’t feel,

You present me flavor when I can’t savor,

You bestow my fragrance when I can’t perceive…

Cheers to you…

You endow me wisdom when I don’t understand,

You offer me direction when I don’t stride,

You furnish me details when I don’t comprehend,

You supply me energy when I don’t pursuit…

Thanks to you…

You support me even if I don’t ask,

You indulge me with love even if I don’t love you back,

You equip me with kindness even if I am ungrateful,

You accommodate me all the time even if I always run away…

Thumbs up for you…

I don’t know what I have done to deserve you,

I don’t know what to do to repay you,

I don’t know what to say to express my gratitude…

All I know is you are always there for me no matter what and regardless of…

I LOVE YOU MOM!!!!

P.S

Happy mothers day to my mom and to all the mothers out there. We should remember too that mother’s day is not only for the biological mothers (all sorts of mothers with child) but it is also for those women who wonderfully gave themselves in the service of caring and nurturing the young. They too have done an awesome job. And because they are awesome let us also greet them a HAPPY MOTHER’S Day – in celebration of their AWESOMENESS…

By the way, these women I am referring to are those in the religious service. I have known wonderful Sisters and I tell you its really difficult to nurture and take care of a child you barely even know but they did great… So HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY SISTERS…you deserve it.

Alone

Alone

It’s cold… so cold..and I’m all
by myself here in this large
yet empty room…it’s
spacious..yes..and beautifully
decorated..but that’s all there is to it…
just an expensive
and ridiculous replacement
for a family….

-says a child longing for his parents’ love and attention-

ikan goreng

Prepared to Delight

If i change my ways,
will you appreciate me?
will i be good enough?
will you finally set me free?
from this cage so dark and muddy?
tied down by guilt, I’m trapped.

If i promise i’ll improve,
will you tell me something shrewd?
will you lie to me and say,
that one day i’ll have my way?
will you free me from this bondage?
or will you just increase the pain?

If i do my best and learn,
how the world can live alone,
will you show me the reality,
that is lived out by humanity?
will you finally agree,
that i’m capable of being me,
without the need of your entity?

– says the fish about to be served over a sumptuous meal-

Ikan goreng is an Indonesian version of fried fish. Its delicious and crispy. For those who are not fond of fish, this one is s must try- you’ll forget it’s actually a fish. I guarantee you..
.my daughter and husband who both are not a fish lover,…. when they first tried this one…..they have forgotten thier not so good relationship with fish.

Me, on the other hand was able to see through beyond this deliciously fried fish. …
