I Love My Babies



To My Children

Loving you
With all my heart
Right from the
Very start...

You mean
The World
To me
More than
Anything you see...

Always here for you
If your scared
I'll hold you tight
All through the night...

When you are sad
I'll make you glad
That Daddy is near
We will laugh and play
All through the day...

I will do my best
To fix your toys
Teach you many things
Give good advice
And mend
Your hurts and pains...

I will take you
On walks in the park
Trips to the mall
Visit the zoo
Maybe even ride
A train or two...

When you are tired
I'll lay you down
Tuck you in
And even find your
Favorite sleeping toy
Or baby doll...

I'll read you a story
To help you fall a sleep
Close your eyes
And rest your head
Sweet dreams
My little ones...

If you should wake
In the night
Have a bad dream
Hear a scary noise
Or need a drink
Daddy will be there...

I will stay
Until all is better
Even fall a sleep
Next to you...

To Fight A Foe - To Find The Flow

You got to get fit to fit to fight a foe
You got to be fit to fit to find the flow...

Sure you want to go on with your bad self
Cuz you're about to get down with my bad self
I'll show you something you don't know...

Kick that so let's go
Blow for blow bang for bang
Dang you nothing but a shame...

I feel bad for putting you down
But you the one stepping to me
with all your foolishness...

Get up get up you want some more...

You got to get fit to fit to fight a foe
You got to be fit to fit to find the flow...

If you don't know this
You go to end up pissing yourself
All over the floor...

I don't mess around
I go pound for pound
I am going to take you down
Knock you round...

Get up get up you want some more
Let's go let's go I got plenty...

You think you something special
Talking all big
Now you just squeal'n
Like dirty a pig
You dig...

Why don't you take a moment
Gather yourself...

You just might realize
There's no way
You going to win...

Just apologize
Reorganize your stupidity
Right out the door
Don't even thinking
To come back
Unless you just want more...

You got to get fit to fit to fight a foe
You got to be fit to fit to find the flow

You got to know
I am not some Joe off the street
I got the heat
To beat to beat you
Up and down
Leave you
Laying all over the ground...

Sure you want to go on with your bad self
Cuz you're about to get down with my bad self
I'll show you something you don't know...

Take... Take... That...

-----------------------------------------------------

Sometime in life our "foe" can be much more than another person... it could be yourself or even just and issue you have to deal with...

A Survivor: Learning to be a Lover

I am no victim
I am a survivor

I am no victim
I am a survivor

I was born a fighter
Now I am learning
To be a lover

Born under the gun
I have always been
On the run

Fighting to survive
Struggling
Every step of the way

Just praying
For the day
I'll be free
To be
Who I was meant
To be

All I want to do
Is fulfill
My destiny

I am no victim
I am a survivor

I am no victim
I am a survivor

I was born a fighter
Now I am learning
To be a lover

A lover like no other
Taken it
Higher and higher

Seeking to keep
It on fire
Achieving all your
Desire

I know I have made
A lot of mistakes
Along the way

Now I am working
To make them
All right

Correcting my ways
And taking responsibility
Seeking civility

I am no victim
I am a survivor

I am no victim
I am a survivor

I was born a fighter
Now I am learning
To be a lover

Please excuse
The hardness in me
I am still learning
How to
Live appropriately

Striking a balance
Between myself
And the world
Achieving harmony

I will never be
perfect
But I am willing
And able
To strive
For what is right
And do what it takes

I have
Heart and soul
A strong spirituality
Deep desire
And conviction

There is nothing
That will stand
In my way
Of victory

I am no victim
I am a survivor

I am no victim
I am a survivor

I was born a fighter
Now I am learning
To be a lover

I was born a fighter
Now I am learning
To be a lover

My Love is True

My love is true
All I need is you...

When you are near
My heart feels so dear...

What will I do
If your love never comes true...

I am sorry for all the pain
I never meant to make you cry...

I know I broke your heart
So let me know
Just what I can do
To heal you...

All I want to do
Is fix what went wrong
And get back to loving you...

Showing you I can be strong
Standing by your side
Making your world
Beautiful again ...

I know it will take time
Just give me this moment
To do right by you...

If I can't mend your broken heart
Let me know
Then I will let you go...

You can find another
to be you lover
But I will never stop loving you...

You mean the world to me
can't you see
I am crying here...

Trying to find a way
To bring your love
Back to me...

I hope you understand
I never meant to hurt you
All I ever wanted
Is for you to be happy...

If you must move on
I'll do my best
To be there for you
My heart will never
Stop loving you...

You Were the Center of My Everything

There was a time I loved you so much that you were the center of my everything...

Your gravity drew me in so close nothing else mattered...

When I slept I thought of you
When I worked I thought of you
No matter what I did all I could do was think of you...

Every day when I woke up and saw you next to me
I felt like the luckiest man in the world...

You completed every aspect of who I was and what I had always dreamed of...

I felt content to live that moment forever...

Then one day our gravity broke and we started to drift apart. I tried so hard to do everything I could to get back into your center but nothing I did worked...

We continued to drift further and further apart...

The part of me that you needed most was so lost and depleted
I couldn't even call for help...

I did not know where to turn
So I fell deep inside myself...

So far at times that I could barley even see
My world began to go dark without your light...

The pain became so unbearable that all I could do was hide...

I never meant to leave you alone but soon I was so lost in a place so dark
I could no longer even find myself...

The further we drifted apart the darker it became...

When all your light was gone I gave up hope and began to die...

All my shame became a great big lie...

Some how some way if I believed we were ok
Then things would work out maybe some day
Your light would come back to me...

Then I would again see how your gravity meant so much to me...

I would be drawn near and held closely
Back to that place where nothing else mattered...

Just you just me and the love we had together...

Unfortunately when the light in my world began to shin again and I could see a path for me to be free of the darkness you were nowhere to be found...

I looked and looked as my world became brighter and brighter
But still I could not see you...

I did not know what to do and still felt so lost without you...

Eventually my world was as bright as could be but still no gravity...

I found my self to be lost in a world of light because my purpose was gone...

Now it is just me learning to move on...

Magandang Umaga Blazing Araw

Just past 8:00 AM
The sun is blazing down on me...

Sweltering rays
Sweat rolls down the back of my neck

My lucky sombrero shading my eyes
The twinkle of glass and metallic surfaces
Gleam back with pure intensity.

Pasyal forward I will
Drinking water
Cool from within.

Dark ragged skin of those passing by
Have no choice but to live under the sun...
Already aged twice their years...

Dry so dry...
Hardly any sign of sweat.
A rag protrudes from that back
Of their thin tattered shirt.

Pasyal forward I go
With purpose closely observing
Buildings and Vendors
Still closed or just getting set up.

It may still be early for general business
Life is always moving
As if it never stopped from the day before...

Askal wondering from basura to basura
finding early morning treats

Panyo passing slowly across my forehead
I watch my step as I go...
Don't want to trip
On uneven ground
Step in the puddle left
Last night by heavy rains.

Local tricycle barkada
Gathering in uniform lines
Waiting for their next bayad.

The Smell of fresh pandesal
Met in the air by the call of taho
Time to bumalik sa bahay
For miryenda

My Ability To See

My Ability To See

Don't deny me
Don't deny me
Don't deny my ability to see
What I see you know me

Don't deny me
By saying that I don't understand
When you know I am hurting Just like you...

I know this pain insides is deep
I was there when our hearts were in That love affair...

I understand that feeling of despair
I know how it feels when you look over and the one you want is not there...

Don't deny me
Don't deny me
Don't deny my ability to see
What I see you know me

Don't deny me
I see that things with you and me did not always blend
But I did not think that this would come to a sudden end...

Our hearts are no different they both will take time to heal
Let's not prolong the pain by making it worse right now...

Give it time and let it settle....

In the end you will see I was never fighting you...
Only trying to help you see the way to be free...
