Para sa gusto nang mag-move on
Sa mga ayaw nang mag-hold on
Sa mga pagod nang masaktan
At takot nang maiwan.
Sa mga pusong sawi
Luhaa at duguan
Sa mga matang pagod nang umiyak
At mga kamay’ng wala nang kahawak.
Wag kang mawalan ng pag-asa
Puso mo may nagdurusa
Pasasaan ba’t ikaw din ay liligaya
Matatagpuan mo rin siya
Ang taong sayo’y magpapasaya
Hindi na kailanman mag-iisa
Dahil sa bawat paglubog ng araw
May kamay na hahawak sayo
At sa bawat bukang-liwayway
May mga bisig na yayakap sayo.
Kapit lang,
Darating ang araw
Ngiti sa iyong mga labi
Ay muling matatanaw.

With Your Hand

The future seems so uncertain
And yesterday is full of pain,
Tomorrow has a promise
But the past you’ll surely miss.

They say life should be lived
According not on what lies ahead,
Nor what sprawls behind shadows
Lurking in the river of sorrows.

But my dear, the past maybe painful
But at least you’re no longer there,
The future maybe hopeful
Yet for sure it’s nowhere near.

So embrace today’s challenges
And savor life’s privileges,
You don’t need to hurry
Take your time and always pray.

Your past may be full of failures
Your future quite unsure,
But God’s hands will guide you
And He will never let you go.

 

“I am continually with You; You have taken hold of my right hand. With Your counsel You will guide me, And afterward receive me to glory.” (Psalm 73:23)

Where Does Love Go When It Dies

True-Love-Never-Dies-Pictures-Photos

If the heart is the place where love comes,
Then where does it go when it dies?
Back to the heart where it comes from?
Or turn into tears in the eyes?

But even if one knew the answer
What would one possibly gain
Would the knowledge of where love has gone through
Ease the heartaches, the pain and the sorrow.

Why is it one cannot quite realize
What a blessing this true love can be
Must one love to know it it priceless?
Must one be blinded before one can see?

Ah! Where does love go when it leaves us?
This question will always remain
For we will know the answer
Until we love again.

AUTHOR’S NOTE:

I happened to have found this composition somewhere in my old files. I cannot recall writing it so I cannot really take credit to it. This is written in a grungy bond paper through a typewriter. I can’t imagine how old this may have been composed given the manner of how this was written. But nonetheless, this is such a beautiful poem that I can’t resist not to publish. It has made me asked myself too. Where does love go when it dies? Where does it go when it leave us? Or does love really leave and die?

I think love never leave one’s heart nor it dies. It remains (1 Cor 13:13b) forever. However, the pain, the heartache, the sorrow – they usually overpower love.And when they rule our hearts, we tend to believe that our love dies. They say there is a thin line between love and hate and one cannot exist without the other. Therefore, hate cannot exists without love and so is the latter without the previous. Bottomline: LOVE REMAINS FOREVER.

Stay in love. Stay in God’s love.

Empty by Amber Hunter

I’m tempted to believe I could satisfy your soul, but I can’t.
I could never. Don’t you know?
I’m tempted to believe you could fill up all my holes, but you can’t.
You could never make me whole.

We’re both made out of dust and it’s just a little crush,
and what’s so wrong with letting our hearts run free tonight?
Oh but can’t you see, in the morning we will be empty, empty, even more empty when I leave

Don’t you know that I can’t stay, cause I’m heading out the other way,
we can’t give back the things we take and I don’t want your heart to break.
I’m so joyful, you’re drawn to me, when you lively heart is lonely
You’re magnetic and I’m longing for a pair of arms to hold me
Why so many strikes against us.. insurmountable are these walls
Why don’t these things ever line up when I let me heart fall?

Let’s not be too careless with our hearts,
let’s be sure the marks we leave aren’t scars

Wish I Could

Wish you could hear my sigh
Wish you could see me cry
Wish you could feel the painl
But I know, I’ll never see you again

Wish I could erase my mem’ries with you
Wish I could choose never to know you
Wish I could start all over again
Wish I could let go of the pain

Wish I could have met somebody else
Wish I could never feel your embrace
Wish I could forget and move on
But baby, the pain still lingers on.

Going in Circles

It’s quite a long journey

And I never knew when this would end

This really is a long journey 

And there’s a lot of curves and bend

At times I feel like I’m going in circles 

God, I badly need a few drops of miracles 

This endless hours of sleeplessness 

Causing momentary strikes of unhappiness 

Dreams of him are quite different now

Questions of feelings for him somehow

Trying to creep up to the depths of my heart

Convincing this heart he’s not worth much 

Of the trouble of the past

I think I’m still moving

Constantly going in circles 

And around the corner of my wounded heart

I will soon find a way to start

Vanishing the ghost and shadows

Of those dreams where both our ways

Seem to never part

God, I need a few rays of light

A beacon ahead, a glimmer

A shove, a push, a knock on my head

To wake me up when I’m not sure how 

I’m suppose to live.
