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...

No Substitute

No Substitute

Sometimes there is no substitute for doing it the right way or having the right tool.

Don't reach for a wrench when you need a hammer...
Don't call an electrician when you need a plumber...

Don't skip steps to save time...
Don't stitch once when you know you need nine...

Always measure twice before you cut...
Always make a plan before you begin...

Never put things off that can be done...
Never waste that which you know you need to conserve...

Remember the best time to fix that which is broken is when it breaks...
The best time to replace that which is used up is when you finish it...

It is always easier to do ten things one at a time then ten things all at one time.

You make goals so you know when something has been achieved...
Achievements are made when you set goals...

Sometimes there is no substitute for doing it the right way or having the right tool the first time...
