Only You

Behind all those smiles
Only you can see the sadness
With all the never-ending trials
You alone can give me the boldness

The things of this world are all temporary
They can give you happiness but not real joy
The source of true love was found in Calvary
Freely given to us and no one can ever destroy

You’ve given me blessings I do not deserve
Forgiving me for sins I keep on repeating
Though many times it’s the world that I serve
Still, your mercies were never fleeting

I’m not worthy of any good things in this earth
Too many times, I’m stubborn and a failure
Yet you always remind me of the reason of your birth
To save a sinner like me and be my Lord and Savior

I’ve been wounded countless times
But your hands always heal me
Your whisper of love is like the sound of chimes
You never fail to remind that you love me dearly

In moments when it’s so hard and I look down on myself
You’re there to pick me up and continue my fight
Whenever I’m afraid and try to hide in my shelf
You conquered the darkness and bring me to light

Because of your love my heart keeps on beating
With courage, I can now face even the worse that’s coming
Not on my own but with your grace that’s never ending
Only because of You that this life has more meaning.

 

Everlasting Love

When I was born I know you’re looking at me
There’s a big smile on your face, and the angels can see
Your eyes keep watching me from morning ‘til night
Just to make sure that I’m always alright

As a child, I’ve learned to know you more
My Lord and Savior, my Wonderful Creator
You’ve shown to me which path to take
Guiding me in every move I make

But as I grew up, questions have come into my mind
If really my life has a purpose behind
I was blinded with things I thought will give me happiness
But then I realize that my life has turned into mess

I felt I was trapped in a very dark tunnel
Like a car that had run out of fuel
My heart was broken and full of despair
There’s no one I could turn to, no one would care

Then you came and saw me crying in one corner
You wiped my tears and carried me to make me feel better
In You, I’ve seen the true meaning of living
Thank You Father for Your love everlasting

Only a Friend

A friend is what I see in you
Having a heart that is one of a kind and true
Always giving a smile on my face
Which nobody can ever erase

We have climbed many mountains together
And we’ve reached the top with God as our guide and helper
Indeed, you are a great friend of mine
I know we’ll keep each other until the end of time

But now, I have this crazy feeling inside of me
I asked myself when and how can this be?
Is this really love? Oh Lord, I pray
Tell me please why am I feeling this way?

Putting a space between us now is what I am doing
To hide this strong and endless feeling
But as I do this, my heart is breaking into two
For it beats for no other person but you

My wish is to be with you every moment of the day
To show how I really feel for you, in my own simple way
But whenever I see you I always pretend
Afraid to hear you say, “I love you, but only as a friend.”

***Only a Friend***

 

For Someone I call my Sister

momentcam_20160622_092759-11A wife of noble character
An awesome mother
A loving daughter
And to God, a faithful follower

That’s how I describe you
You speak words that touch one’s heart
Even your eyes tell a lot of things you’ve been through
It has been an inspiration in a world that is breaking apart

I can see that God really loves surprises
He gives blessings even though we don’t request
And knowing that you’re one of those, my heart rejoices
And once again life became an exciting quest

Along with others, a friendship was born since then
We share our life stories along with its laughters and tears
We doubled the joy and divided the burden
Continue growing in Him who made us strong enough to face our fears

It’s been a great blessing having you around
From you, I’ve learned so much in life
Your faith has moved me and I was astound
I see joy behind your tears, and victory amidst your strife

Our friendship may just be starting
But our bond felt like a hundred years old already
You’re a gift from God, an added blessing
Happy to have someone who calls me sister and loves me sincerely

Thank you for treating me like a real sister
Though I couldn’t be the best ever
Whenever you feel that life is like a twister
Rest assured I’ll be there to somehow make you feel better

And though someday, life will lead us in different roads
Our faces will soon have wrinkles, and children will call us ‘olds’
In my mind, I will never forget that I have someone I call my sister
And our bond I will hold it close forever.

In my prayers, you’ll always be a part
And our memories will stay in my heart
To Him, I’m forever thankful for having you
To my dearest sister, always remember that I love you.

***For Someone I call my Sister***

 

Ang Prinsipe at Ang Prinsesa

index

Isang napakagandang prinsesa

Sa isang palasyo nakatira

Ngunit kanyang pagkatao

Nais niyang maging ordinaryo

Palasyo man ay malaki

Ngunit sa lawak nito ay hindi mahanap ang sarili

Lahat ng galaw niya ay limitado

Laging sumusunod kahit nahihirapan na ang puso

Parang ibon na nakakulong sa hawla

Hindi makahinga at nais makawala

Gustong makita ang lawak ng mundo

Sa ibang tao ay nais makihalubilo

Tulad ng iba puso’y gustong magmahal

Pag-ibig na totoo at hiningi sa Maykapal

Harapin ang bukas na nasa Itaas may pananalig

Magdilim man ang paligid, pagmamahal sa isa’t-isa ang   siyang mananaig

Nang masilayan ang kalayaang hinahangad

Isang pangarap ang siyang natupad

Hindi man sakay ng isang karwahe

Sa katapangan at kabutihang puso, siya’y maituturing na prinsipe

Pagkakaibigan ang siyang unang nabuo

Hanggang sa unti-unti ay naging isa ang tibok ng kanilang puso

Isang pag-iibigan ang siyang namulaklak

Halaga nito ay higit pa sa ginto at pilak

Ngunit tamis nito’y pilit na hinahadlangan

Utos sa prinsesa, prinsipe ay layuan

Pagiging ordinaryo ng prinsipe ang siyang dahilan

Tibay ng pag-iibigan ngayo’y masusubukan

Minsan kahit gaano man ipaglaban

Pag-ibig ay kailangan bitawan

Hindi dahil pagmamahal ay sinusuko

Kundi piniling protektahan ang minamahal mundo man ay gumuho

Labis ang sakit ng pamamaalam

Sa iyong mahal na pinakaaasam

Ngunit minsan pinipiling masaktan

Upang minamahal ay maiwas sa kapahamakan

Lumipas ang panahon, puso ng taong minamahal ay naging bato

‘Di malaman kung ang prinsesa pa rin ang nilalaman ng kanyang puso

Katayuan ay nagkapalit, prinsesa’y naging ordinaryo

Ang hamak na ordinaryo naging prinsipe ng malaking palasyo

Prinsesa’y ‘di malaman ang gagawin

Upang kapatawaran ng prinsipe ay maangkin

Mga magandang alaala tila ba’y kinalimutan

Wala na bang pangalawang pagkakaton ang kanilang pagmamahalan?

Ngunit pag-ibig ilibing man sa ikailaliman

Sa sobrang lakas ay ‘di pa rin mapigilan

Pilit man itanggi ng prinsipe sa sarili

Pagmamahal sa prinsesa kailanma’y hindi napawi

Piliin ang pagmamahal, pangako ng prinsesa

Hindi titigil at patuloy na umaasa

Na sa puso ng prinsipe siya pa rin ang mahal

‘Yan ang tangi niyang dasal sa Maykapal

Sa tulong ng mga taong nagmamahal sa kanila

Sila’y unti-unting tinutulak sa isa’t-isa

May umaaligid mang iba na nais sungkitin ang mga puso nila

Tila ba ang mga ito’y nakasara at may kandado pa

Unti-unting lumalambot ang puso ng prinsipe

Dating tinataboy, ngayon hinahanap ‘pag wala sa tabi

Naibigay na ang hiniling na kapatawaran

Magandang pagsasama muling binalikan

Lahat ng sugat humihilom na

Muling binuksan ang puso para mahalin ang prinsesa

Sa mga mata nila’y tunay na makikita

Pagmamahal sa isa’t-isa ‘di man sila magsalita

Ano mang hadlang ngayon sila ay handa

Hindi papipigil sa ano mang sakuna

Takot sa puso hindi man mapigilan

Pangako ng prinsipe, prinsesa’y ‘di bibitawan

Mga taong nais silang saktan

Kasamaan nila ngayo’y natuldukan

Sa lahat ng pasakit at kasamaan

Laging mananaig ang kabutihan

Ngayon, luha sa mga mata ‘di na dulot ng kalungkutan

Ito’y dahil sa umaapaw nilang kaligayahan

Marami mang pagsubok sa kanila’y dumaan

Sila’y nanaig dahil sa pagmamahalan

Bagong yugto ang kanilang haharapin

Sa harap ng Maykapal ang dalawa ay pag-iisahin

Lakad patungong altar, prinsesa’y walang mapaglagyan ng kaligayahan

Ngayon bawat gising niya’y mukha ng minamahal ang masisilayan

Luha sa mga mata ng prinsipe ay makikita

Sobrang kasiyahan di mailarawan sa salita

Habang ang prinsesa ay papalapit sa kanya

Ngayon bawat bukas ay puno ng pag-asa

Pag-ibig nila ay tulad ng isang alitaptap

Madilim man ang paligid ay nananatiling kumikislap

Isinulat ng Maykapal ng napakaganda

Ito ang kwento ni Prinsipe Tenten at Prinsesa Serena.
