Nakatagong Pag Ibig

Minulat ko aking mga mata

Ikaw unang nakita

Sinalubong ng iyong matamis na ngiti

Aking katawa’y biglang hndi mapakali

Presensya mo ay parang alon na dumadampis sa aking mga paa

Paru paro ay ngliliparan sa aking sikmura

Kilig at kiliti ay sumanib sa katawan.

Dama ay pangamba at lungkot na ito ay hindi masuklian.

Damdaming namumuo ay pinilit iwasan

Sapagkat ako ay takot na masaktan

Love hungry

Tuesday words from Morrie

“We’ve got a sort of brainwashing going on in our country, Morrie sighed. Do you know how they brainwash people? They repeat something over and over. And that’s what we do in this country. Owning things is good. More money is good. More property is good. More commercialism is good. More is good. More is good. We repeat it–and have it repeated to us–over and over until nobody bothers to even think otherwise. The average person is so fogged up by all of this, he has no perspective on what’s really important anymore.

Wherever I went in my life, I met people wanting to gobble up something new. Gobble up a new car. Gobble up a new piece of property. Gobble up the latest toy. And then they wanted to tell you about it. ‘Guess what I got? Guess what I got?’

You know how I interpreted that? These were people so hungry for love that they were accepting substitutes. They were embracing material things and expecting a sort of hug back. But it never works. You can’t substitute material things for love or for gentleness or for tenderness or for a sense of comradeship.

Money is not a substitute for tenderness, and power is not a substitute for tenderness. I can tell you, as I’m sitting here dying, when you most need it, neither money nor power will give you the feeling you’re looking for, no matter how much of them you have.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Open heart

Tuesday words from Morrie.

“If you’re trying to show off for people at the top, forget it. They will look down on you anyhow. And if you’re trying to show off for people at the bottom, forget it. They will only envy you. Status will get you nowhere. Only an open heart will allow you to float equally between everyone.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Wrong Way

Tuesday words from Morrie.

“So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they’re busy doing things they think are important. This is because they’re chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.”
Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

I never had that feeling that I had to carry the weight of somebody’s ignorance around with me. And that was true for racists who wanted to use the ‘n’ word when talking about me or about my people, or the stupidity of people who really wanted to belittle other folks because they weren’t pretty or they weren’t rich or they weren’t clever. Maya Angelou

Forever is not Enough

 GAs the sun goes down, my heart starts to fall apart

Tears are flowing and my heart is bleeding

How I wish I could turn back time…

So you could be completely mine.

Thought that if you’re happy together

You will live forever

Thought that if you loved each other

You have forever…

Jenny G.

“Don’t cry when the sun is gone, because the tears won’t let you see the stars”. – Violeta Para

Why Can’t it be? 

You came along, unexpectedly

I was doing fine in my little world

Baby please don’t get me wrong

‘Cause I’m not complaining

But you see, you got my mind spinning
Why can’t it be

Why can’t it be the two of us

Why can’t we be lovers

Only friends

You came along

At the wrong place, at the wrong time

Or was it me


Baby I dream of you every minute

You’re in my dreams

You’re always in it

That’s the only place I know

Where you could be mine

And I’m yours (Baby I’m yours)

Only till I wake up

🎶Why can’t it be🎶- Nina

Warmth has never come

Weather is changing

It is going to start getting warm again

Cold days coming to an end

Yet you’re still the same.

They said, “Love makes us warm inside”

Yet it feels chilly on my inner side

How I wish weather stays warm forever

So at least I can feel the warmth that I long for

Which you can’t give me anymore

If Only

5225928218_378d5ded03

If only I could stop my heart from loving someone who is not the one

If only I could choose someone that will love me

In the right place and in the right time

If only…

If only…

If only is possible then everything is permissible

Jenny G.
