God Blessed the Broken Road

Dreams do come true and Love really find its way to each others hearts.

When I first heard this song Bless the Broken Road by the Rascal Flatts, my initial reaction was “Ahh just another gospel song”, because of its melody and rhythm. But after I read the lyrics and played it again, I was moved by its meaning. Then I relalized why Kuya Alan picked this song as one of his favorites.

Last Monday I had the chance to attend the “wedding of the year” (hehehe) of Kuya Alan and Ate Glenda at Hotel Ponte Fino in Batangas City. It was such a nice event I would regret if I didn’t come. We saw how they love each other so much and it’s really an inspiring moment seeing couple being united as  one in marriage.

But before they came to that moment, they first went to a very special love story. Who would have expected that 2 person both from Batangas City will meet and fall in-love in a foreign land. Kuya Alan is working in Korea while Ate Glenda is in Japan. But still the universe conspired for them to meet in Japan and know each other. What’s more touching about their story is they both came from a long hiatus of non-relationship, that’s why they are each others firsts. Like the lyrics from the song, “Every long lost dream led me to where you are, Others who broke my heart they were like Northern stars, Pointing me on my way into your loving arms, This much I know is true, That God blessed the broken road, That led me straight to you”. God really blessed their roads and led straight to each others hearts. What a nice love story indeed and being a friend of Kuya Alan and witnessing their union is for me a wonderful experience.

It made me realized that true love really exist not only in fairy tales but in real life. That every unsuccessful attempt to find love will eventually fall into its right time no matter how long it takes. That every disappointment is a blessing in disguise to lead you to a greater and more precious gift of love. That dreams really do come true to those who believe and work for it’s attainment. I am lucky to have known Kuya Alan and now Ate Glenda. They are now one of my idols and inspiration when it comes to love and relationship. They have proved that God will really lead you to that person in the right time at the right place no matter how unconventional it is.

Prayer Really Works

It was a busy Wednesday in office doing my monthly reports when a chat window popped out. Nung una kala ko kung sino kasi di ko pa nakikita yung name, when I looked at it si Kuya Aries pala. I initially thought mangungulit lang, cause that’s his usual thing when he’s bored in their office at walang magawa. But to my surprise may good news pala sya. He annouced that he’s gonna be a father soon and he’s informing me na magiging ninong na ko. That thing is what we’ve waiting for a long time (yup pati ako nakikihintay. hehehe). He always shared with me his love life and love problems and he always wanted this. After series of false alarms, now her girlfriend’s pregnancy test indicated positive result. I can feel how happy he is that he is now an expectant father. They say the gift of life is the most rewarding thing a person could receive, more fulfilling than any other achievements. But before coming to the current situation it cost him also many disappointments and low points.  He even got separated from her girlfriend and it has tolled him so much. But prayers has always been present. I always encouraged him to be optimistic and positive that in time everything will work out right. That in perfect time he will resurrect from the low points that he had laid on before. That he will overcome all the obstacles that he hurdled. And true enough prayers had bear fruit for them, they got back in each others arms and now are expectant parents.

Oh how happy to see situations likes this. Couples who have gone through testing stage and still come out victorious because of their LOVE for each other and FAITH through prayers. It really boils down to LOVE and PRAYERS, that in every relationship it is really important to have FAITH that LOVE will make you through in spite and despite of any circumstances that faces you.

Prayers really work and it will always work, so keep on praying.

Salamangkera

Sa’king tahimik na mundo
Nasanay mabuhay nang mag-isa
Bawat araw kinakaya nang walang inaasahang kasama
Sa iyong pagdating mundo ko’y nagising
Nagkaroon ng ingay at nagliwanag ang kulay
Ngayong natagpuan ka ligaya’y umaapaw
Tibok nang puso’y laging mabilis
Ngiti sa labi hindi maalis
Dahil ikaw ang kape ko
Na sa’kiy nagpapainit
Salamangkerang bumihag sa puso kong nananahimik.

———————————————————————-
Magkapiling Pa Rin

Nangagarap na muling makapiling ka
Nananabik na muling mayakap ka
Umaasang muling magkikita, at muling mahagkan ka
Ngunit ano mang mangyari
Di man tayo magkatabi
Sa’king puso ikaw mananatili
Laging tandaan ako’y nandito lamang
Sa puso ko lagi kang iingatan.

———————————————————————-
Adhika

Sa bawat araw na dumadaan
Pangarap ko’y ikaw
Marinig lamang ang boses mo
Oh anong ligaya ko
Ngiti sa labi ang iyong hatid
Nagpapatibok ng pusong umiibig
Di man tayo nagkikita lagi kang inaalala
Pinapangarap na muling ikaw ay makasama
Muling pagsasaluhan masayang tawanan
Magdadamayan kung may iyakan
Mahal kita at mahal mo ako
Sabayan natin ang ikot ng mundo

———————————————————————-
Malungkot na Puso

Tinamaan na naman ng biglang kalungkutan
Animo’y dinudurog ang pusong luhaan
Di maipaliwanag itong nararamdaman
Siguro’y nananabik lamang na ikay masilayan
Ngunit handang magtiis at handang maghintay
Lahat ay kakayanin pagkat ikay mahal
Hanggat sinisigaw ng puso koy ikaw
Patuloy na mamahalin kung iyong nanaisin
Kung dumating ang araw na hindi mo na kaya
At pagmamahal sa’kiy naglaho na
Iiyak na lang at tahimik na magluluksa
Tatanggapin ng maluwag nitong damdaming nagdurusa
Pagkat mahal kita, kaligayahan mo ang nais
Babaunin ko na lamang mga halik na kay tamis
Mga yakap na kay higpit at ngiting walang kaparis
Na minsang pinagsaluhan bunga ng ating pag-ibig

———————————————————————-
Tinig

Kalungkuta’y nanumbalik sa pusong nananabik
Nangangamba’t di mawari ang puso’y humihikbi
May luha nang pananabik at pangungulila
Nananalanging sana’y muli kang makita
Sanay mapawi itong kalungkutan
Sa mga tinig na malambing na nais mapakinggan
Animoy musika sa puso, nagbibigay kasiyahan
Tinig na aking mahal at patuloy na minamahal

Hinagpis

Gusto kong umiyak
Ngunit wala nang luha
Pusong nasasaktan manhid na
At walang pakiramdam
Bakit ba ako nahulog
Sa matamis mong mga ngiti
Kung sakit nang damdamin lang nman ang sukli

—————————————————————–

Im With You

Hear me through my music
Feel me through the wind
When the sun is shining
That’s the time I’m smiling
When the day is raining
That’s the time I’m crying
I’m with every weather of the day
I’m with you everyday

—————————————————————–
Liwanag

Gabing puno ng usok
Nag-iisa sa sulok
Naglalakbay ang diwa habang tumatangis
Mga talang nakasilip sa bintana
Tila nag-aanyayang
Ngumiti ka naman at pahirin ang luha
Di natatapos ang mga bagay sa isang paalam
Buhay ay punong-puno ng pag-asa
Manalig ka lamang

—————————————————————–
You

Fiery angel who came without notice
The fruit that snow white ate
You are to my eye
Star that glitters
Lighting my every nights
A sweetest cake in my every dreams
A dagger in my heart
You made me bleeding

Fruits of Sentiments (Poem Collection Vol.1)

I recently visited my profile in Friendster, then realized I have my Blog Page there. Below are one of my Poem collections migrated from the FS Blog page.

Lord I’m Grateful

A grateful heart is all I have
For all the blessing that I have got
Your saving grace and merciful heart
Has given me a whole new life
Lord I’ll shout and praise your name
I’ll tell the world the works you’ve made
All the miracles that you have done
Clearly shown you’re mighty one
You are truly my God who lives
You’re my counsel in every feat
You are my beacon that shines so bright
Lord my bestfriend, savior of our lives
With every beat on my heart I will rejoice
I will sing praises with all my voice
Everyday I will thank you Lord
And forever you will be my joy
Lord I’m grateful
Lord I’m grateful
And forever I will love you Lord

Bago ka Lumisan

Sa iyong pag-alis
May nadaramang sakit
Pusong minsan nagliwanag
Nagayon nababalot na ng ulap
Nakakalungkot na ako’y iiwan na
Di mapigilan pagpatak ng luha
Damdaming sumisigaw ba’t di pagbigyan
Isang halik man lang bago ka lumisan
Bakit ba kailangan pang lumisan
Di ba maaring manatili na lamang
Sa’king tabi ika’y iingatan
Pag-ibig na alay ating pagsaluhan
Ngayong nag-iisa kasama ay gitara
Sa kwartong tahimik pinangarap kang makasama
Kung pinagbigyan lang sana
Abot langit ang ligaya

——————————————————————–
Bakit Ba

Nang una kang makita di ko inakala
Na ika’y lilisan at ako’y iiwan
Mga araw na pinagsamahan puno ng kasiyahan
Sana’y maulit kahit minsan man lang
Wala nang saysay ang buhay
Kung di ka kapiling
Walang humpay ang pagdurusa
Ngayong puso’y nag-iisa
Bakit ba kaylangan pang lumayo
Bakit ba kailangan pang iwanan
Bakit pa tayo pinagtagpo
Kung magkakalayo rin naman
Ngayong nag-iisa ay alaala ka
Masayang tawanan sa tuwing uwian
Sa jeep na sinasakyan di ko maiwasan
Na pangaraping katabi pari’y ikaw lamang

——————————————————————–
The Beat

Going to sleep with smile on my lips
Mirrored by the smile earlier seen
Sparkling eyes so enticing
Nice aura that is radiating
The earth is shaking and vibrating
Moment when one can say
“Im ready to get hurt again”
Why is this feeling always roam
Trying to test our heart and soul
It really feels good to know your inlove
But it also tends to get you hurt
