EMOTIONAL FREEDOM 2: Poetry In Motion

AN ANGEL, SHE IS

We see her everyday, surrounded by her kids,
She carries books and note pads, and wears high heels.
Her caring hands and soothing voice,
In rough times, when little children’s fear conquered.
Warriors carry a sword and a shield to protect,
The only weapon she has is her very self,
If she acts by instinct, her strong will dictates,
Taking on the bullets until her last breath,
So that her little children may live.
That’s how Angels are…to love and protect.
Now we know, she’s an Angel on earth.

*Vicki Sotto, a Sandy Brook Elementary School teacher who died sheilding her students from the bullets of a gunman*

ILAW AT GABAY

Habang papalapit ako sa Kanya
Madilim kong mundo, nababanaag ang pag-asa.
Ilaw at gabay sa daan ng buhay,
Siya ang kasama ko at kaagapay.
May dahilan kung bakit tayo dumadaan,
Mga pagsubok sa buhay kung minsan ‘di makayanan.
Isang libo’t isang karanasan gawing panuntunan,
Ipabahala sa Kanya, ‘di tayo pababayaan.
Itaas ang kamay, ang Puso ay buksan,
Huwag matakot at mag-alinlangan.
Siya ang nag-iisa at tunay na kaibigan,
Kumapit lang sa Kanya,
Pighati’t problema, maiibsan.

A KISS…

I feel it.
Did you feel it too?
Sparks and tingles, from
My head down to my toes.
A kiss-
Spontaneous as it is, yet seems forever,
From that moment on I will remember!
No words uttered, only our eyes declare,
Spoken from the heart, it is all that matters.
Breaking away from your embrace,
Seems hard to bear,
Hearing your heartbeat, music to my ear, that
I can go into a peaceful slumber.
I was so afraid to open my heart
And let love walk in, but
You made me believe in myself
That I can love again.
The void inside me now filled with bliss,
Where everything started
From a mutual, spontaneous kiss.

WHEN THE HEART MENDS

Who can say –
That I will find you, or
You will find me?
What is it called…fate? destiny?
Across oceans and continents
We travelled in opposing directions.
Navigating through rough roads,
Adrift and wary,
Seeking for answers, or just running away.
Unbeknownst, our path soon to meet,
As chance and fate collide,
Here we are face to face.
When you smile at me,
I could not fathom what I felt,
I smiled back, a smile that brought a tear.
When you offered me your hand,
Our fingers entwined,
I could not discern which one was yours,
Which one was mine.
I knew then, oh yes, you were the one.
On the day we were born,
So as our destiny began.
Your heart seeks,
Where it leads you to find mine,
Both healed,
Two hearts are ready to become one.

YOU CAN’T, BUT I CAN…

You told me:
You are like a magnet,
I can’t tear myself away from you.
You are like a flu,
I can’t get you out of my system.
You make my temperature rise,
And you make me shiver.
You are like a compass, for without you,
I can’t find my way…I am lost.
You occupy my thoughts,
I can’t get you out of my mind.

I say:
If you can’t, I can…
Be with you, walk beside you
Wherever destiny leads us.
When things go wrong,
I can be with you to make it right.
When you feel down and low,
I can be your strength and uplift you.
When you want to talk, I can listen.
When you seem lost,
I can be your guide, to
Find your way back home.
When you offered me your love,
I promised my heart to you,
Myself, my all.
I am here with you, and for you.
For always…
