I am so glad that I met someone like you,
Someone who doesn’t leave me when I am in my low;
In a short span of time we became a sweet friend so,
I fall for you without even any clue.
My world totally changed when you came into my life,
You serve as my inspiration, to aim high and achieve the right,
In my downs, you are always there as my light
Encouraging me to struggle, stand up and fight.
But suddenly you became different
That causes my heart to tremble a little bit
Have I done something wrong?
That made you mad and just left me alone.
My whole world was terribly ruined, by just a glimpse of an eye,
So hurt that can’t do anything but to cry;
Feeling so weak, seems every minute is my last breath,
Even every single day to me, became a big threat.
Now that your gone, don’t know how and where to start
O’ sweet God, please heal this broken heart
Co’z I don’t really want that we’ll be apart,
I know it’s too late, but I miss my dear sweetheart.
I can’t help myself but to give up
Oh dear, still hoping but I know I need to stop
Moving on is so hard for me to start
But I know I can do this co’z I have this-BRAVEHEART.
If I really wanted to be happy, I would……
Trust in the goodness of others.
-From the book ‘If I really wanted to be happy, I would…’ published by Lighthouse Books in 2002-
“Trust men and they will be true to you; treat them greatly and they will show themselves great.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson—
Wag Mo Sana Akong Bitawan
Ni Cheryn Mariz Natividad
Isip ko’y lumilipad sa himpapawid
Na tila ba napakalalim ng nais mabatid
Di ko alam kung bakit
Basta’t ang nais ko’y matulala sa gilid.
Ikaw! Ikaw nga ang nasa isip
Di rin mawari kung ano ang nais alamin
Tumingin sa langit at humiling sa Poong Maykapal
Na sana’y hipuin ang aking puso’t isipan ng sa gayo’y ma-tumbok ang kasagutan.
Nais kong tumakbo ng tumakbo sa kawalan
Upang nadarama’y mawaglit saglit sa isipan
Nais kong humalakhak at ngumiti sa sambayanan
Upang pagkalungkot ng mga mata ko’y matakpan kahit san-dali man.
Hilingin ko man na ako’y iyong iwan
Wag mo sana akong bitawan
Pagkat ang isip ko’y gulong-gulo lang
Alam ko sa puso ko tanging ikaw lang ang nanaising maka-sama magpakailan pa man.
