Magic

(There is magic everywhere, all the time)

 

Magic

In a world full of sorrows
let me be your source of joy
and your reason to smile with gratitude
let me be the one to say
you don’t need to be wise to understand that simple things in life are extraordinary

I’ll be the magic you’ve always longed.

In a world where reality bites
I’ll usher you to a place
of never-ending excitement 
and eagerness
I’ll usher you to do foolish things
with enthusiasm and ardor

I’ll be the magic you’ve always needed.

In a world of darkness
I will be your little ray of light
I’ll bring a speck of fervent hope
and aspiration
I will be the flame
I’ll burn with great passion
and a sense of conviction

I’ll be the magic you’ve always missed.

In a world where dreams are impossible
I will be your wishing star
and will make your dreams a reality
I will cheer you up like a unicorn
’till you find your happily ever after

I will be the magic you’ve always desired.

I will be your dreams do come true
and your happy ending
I will be your golden pot at the end
of a rainbow and your silver lining
I will be your sweetest refrain in
a lonely lullaby

I will be the magic and will never let you down.

 

P.S.

Inspired by my conversation with Gina of https://alifelesslivedblog.wordpress.com/2020/02/14/the-magic-of-two-valentines/

From her recent post “The Magic of Two Valentines”
Magic happens when we believe. And when we believe, we learn to trust confidently, love with compassion and kindness, dream bigger than we used to, understand without a doubt, and live life with so much gratitude in our hearts.

When we believe we will be able to see the good in even the worst situation or the best in a seemingly evil being. We will be happier, we will be more at peace and the world will be a better place to live.

This is just me, wishing and cheering you all a magical day wherever you are and whatever you do.

This is for kate too https://aroused.blog/  for saying “cheer us all up”

Lily, Aphrodite

Kate of Calmkate is up with a new and fun challenge:

think of three swirdle words and put them into a poem

Here are my three words:

Chillax (chill/relax)
Cosplay (costume/play)
Shopaholic (shop/alcoholic)

Drum roll, please………

 

Here’s my fun poem/verse using these words…

 

 

Lily, the shopaholic
feeling sad and melancholic
gone out and chillax, to say
so on with her lovely cosplay
went along the sidewalks and stroll
into the giant and massive mall
head, beaming with pride
walk fiercely and stride
as the brave and mighty
beautiful, Aphrodite.

( Lily, could be out there somewhere…)

Join in the fun at https://aroused.blog/2019/09/09/swirdle-prompt/

 

I intend to make this a fun post as my way of saying Life is hard, but there are moments, sometimes hours – and, if you’re really lucky, full days – where everything feels just right. .and today could be just right.

We can be anything we wanted to be, like Lily cosplaying as Aphrodite, an ancient Greek goddess associated with love, beauty, pleasure, passion, and procreation.

Stuck (Etheree)

Stuck
In the
Middle of
Life’s crossroad paths
What we missed; must go
Least we live in the past
And can’t let go; the present
Is a must to live and enjoy
For nobody gets closer, as future
Remains a vision, when we are just stuck.

Thanks to my daughter Pat for this beautiful photo~~~

~My dearest~

I am but a shadow in the dark

Slowly coming out

Gently whispering

Unto your tormented soul…

“Its gonna be alright”

Life (Inverted etheree)

IMG-0c3998587f121f1c3fdaa050ad455b48-V

When life hits you the hardest, just be brave
When all else seemed to fail, just rise up
For every teardrop, there is hope
For every pain, there lies the joy
As long as people care
As long as love lives
We will be fine
We endure
Live, love,
Care.

 

A Great Tragedy (Dectina Refrain)

 

A Great Tragedy

My
soul died
My tears dried
words unspoken
Of yet one great love
My heart cries my soul bleeds
Of yet another true love
Never really was meant to be
A great tragedy, of greatest love
My soul died, my tears dried, words unspoken.

P.S.

This one goes out to the lovely couple seated next to me on a plane. I wrote this with the hope that the universe will come together and give them peace of heart and mind as they embark on their lives separately.

P.S.S

In response to 10-line Poem Challenge #19: Dectina Refrain.

Dectina Refrain

The Dectina Refrain looks exactly like an Etheree, but with one distinguishing characteristic, as we shall see. This form was created by Marion Friedenthal and named by Luke Prater.

Like the Etheree, it is a decastitch (10-line stanza) with an emphasis on the syllabic count of each line. Also, like the Etheree, the syllabic count ascends: 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10Like the Etheree, it is unrhymed. Line 10 is the distinguishing feature between the Etheree and the Dectina Refrain. In the latter form, line 10 is comprised of lines 1-4 altogether and sometimes enclosed in quotation marks. Hence, the refrain.

Choices

Some things in life are worth holding on,
and some need letting go
one is faced with so many options
but there are times that not even one
is worth the choice
you simply must give it up or die holding on and lose it all…
or live hating for wanting more…

 

Faithfully (Etheree)

It’s
Over
Yet I feel
Deep in my heart
I long and I cry
By my side, you will be
Friends, let’s not be! Oh hear me
Listen to what I say, dear, please
My soul wants you, my heart desires you
Forever this will be, yours faithfully.

Over a Cup of Coffee

20170820_164902

I wonder many times
how you have become so much
part of me I can’t let go.

A trip to the cafe would
simply make it go, all my doubts
my worries fade away.

It might be the coffee with
its soothing aroma that calms
down my wary heart.

Or it could the romantic
vibe in the cafe that makes
me fall in love again.

I guess it would always be
like this, you and me
over a cup of coffee.

I love you, once more and always.

 

P.S.
If you have been following me for a while now, I guess you would know that this is again a poetic product of me eavesdropping for the nth times lol.

It just feels so good seeing people happy and in love.
