I go…

Why these words
Why these thoughts
Why such revelations
This mind has to hold
Why stir this heart
Why chosen apart
Why such emotions
Where do I start

What step to take
How far to go
Where forth I don’t know
This road I follow
Swayed by the wind
Lost in the spin
I falter and fall
Yet you gave it your all

Lean on the Wood
Rest on the Rock
Lay on Your feet
Saved by Your blood

None

Because He lives;
Because He forgives;
Because He is God;
Because He is Almighty;
Because He saves;
Because He loves me.
What reasons do I have
Not to believe, not to trust?
None.
Because there’s none like Jesus,
None like God,
Who will take all of me –
Even the broken, sinful part of me –
To embrace them all and love me.

Only God

Only You can see my tears and know exactly what they mean;

And only You can wipe these tears and fill this empty space within;

Because only You know what’s in my heart and give exactly what it needs;

Only You can steady this heart and bring back the peace within.

Easter

Winter is over, spring has come
The flowers bloom
There’s an empty tomb
Crossing over death, He’s done
From cross to grave
He defeated death
Lent is over, Easter has come
Alleluia, He’s risen
Christ is truly risen!

He

He who loves me,
He who cares for me,
He who holds me in His hands,
He who never lets me go.

He who calls me,
He who chooses me,
He who keeps me under His wings,
He who steadies my heart.

He who disciplines me,
He who forgives me,
He whose mercy never fails,
He who never lets me fall.

He who strengthens me,
He who sustains me,
He who gives me His life,
He who is forever faithful.

He is my Dad,
He is my King,
He is my God,
To Him my heart sings.

This Love

You
Can be my redemption
or my destruction.
And I
Might be your salvation
or a wrong inclination.
We
Can be an institution
or a twisted illusion.

Grab my hand
and we will try to see
where this road leads.
Don’t let go
even when it seems
the end is near.

You
Will be my affirmation
of this affection.
And I
Will be your declaration
of this devotion.
We
Will swim in our emotions
and drown in our passion.

Grab my hand
and we will try to see
where this road leads.
Don’t let go
even when it seems
the end is near.

This love
A revolution
They view
With aversion

I See

In praising I see
Beauty beyond compare
In thanking I see
Joy enough to share
In praying I see
Calm so resolute
In loving I see
Power that’s absolute

Storm

In the silence of the morning
Staring out my window
Sun shining down the pavement
Too calm for my own enjoyment

A knock shook me out of my daze
Walking to the front door
Something inside me twist in pain
Why did it feel it’s gonna rain

I run against the wind
Rain against my face
Reaching out to you
Calling out your name

Inside folded primly like a napkin
Words staring back at me
The sun turned black I couldn’t see
How can you leave, how can this be

Pushed against the wall in my bedroom
I gasped for air to breathe
Just last night you said we’ll be forever
What changed your mind to up and leave

I run against the wind
Rain against my face
Reaching out to you
Calling out your name

This whirlwind romance I do not understand
I fell too quickly now I’m dropped like a bomb
​You with your perfect smile left like a perfect storm
Now I’m drenched and clueless, where did I go wrong

I run against the wind
Rain against my face
Reaching out to you
Calling out your name

On Print

unnamed

Light flashed
The shutter sound
A moment captured
Frozen on print

Smiles plastered
Colors may fade
Just once gotten
Never the same

To hold in hand
To pass around
Once it’s given
May never be found

Thus is the story
Of a photo on print
Pressed the instax
Captured the scene

Second-Guessing

I notice that look
I disregard it
I shake off the feeling
Of enjoying it

I heard what she said
About you and me
Laugh off the thought
The meaning behind it

And we go round and round in circles
Second-guessing ourselves
Thinking might be, hoping may be
Not truly wanting to dissuade ourselves

Sometimes I feel like
You’re running away
Or maybe I’m haunted
By imaginary days

Is this avoidance
The fear of dismay
To fight off feelings
For prudence’s sake

And we go round and round in circles
Second-guessing ourselves
Thinking might be, hoping may be
Not truly wanting to dissuade ourselves

Maybe it’s time to simply let it go
Enjoy what comes and cry for moments gone
Been reading minds and stares and smiles
I’ve failed too many times don’t want to fail this time

And we go round and round in circles
Second-guessing ourselves
Thinking might be, hoping may be
Not truly wanting to dissuade ourselves

A Cup of Tea

Remember October
When the leaves start to change their colors
A book in one hand, a cup of tea in the other
By the lake I stare out to wonder

Remember November
By the leaves, the path is covered
A book is one hand, a cup of tea in the other
By the park I sit wrapped in my sweater

Remember December
The cool wind blows the start of winter
A book in one hand, a cup of tea in the other
Cold and alone, I wait for Spring and wonder

Thirteen
Falling on a Friday
Black Cat
And walking under triangles
Seems I have a thing
For what they deem unlucky

Thirteen
It doesn’t matter
I wear it proud.
It’s my lucky number.
Like eight and nine
Or seven even for some.

Thirteen
Why did I choose you
Or was it
You have drawn me
In to your magical charm
A spell, we’re bounded

Thirteen
I’m sticking by you
Superstitions,
Never believing them
Choices I make,
And I am choosing you

I heard it’s National Poetry Day on WordPress, so posting an entry for it. 😉

My Heart Sings

Perfeclty Flawed © 08.10.13

There’s a song that my heart is singing
A song that gives my life meaning
Shouts of joy so overwhelming
Praises I raise to the Almighty Being

Once in darkness I was wandering
Lost, confused, kept on stumbling
Caught on dead ends and cliff-hangings
Uncertain future that keeps evaporating

A voice so still, I heard it calling
Red droplets from above keep falling
A light from faint to bright keeps glowing
My feet, towards it, start moving

Sunshine never felt so inviting
Flowers never smelled as pleasing
Hope never been solid and enduring
‘Til that fateful day my Saviour caught me

So my heart will keep rejoicing
Until the day of my Saviour’s coming
I will bask in the light of His mercy
And of His passion, of His love for me.

What Your Silence Mean

Silence means yes.
Silence means no.
Which statement holds true?
How will you know?

I sent you a message
I see that you’ve ‘seen’ it
The night passed, the sun came
Did you accidentally delete it?

I asked you a question
For old time’s sake’s chit chats
Maybe you’re doing the laundry
Or trying to bathe your cat.

If only I can read minds
Or see through the screen
Then maybe I’ll understand
What your silence mean.

Your Grace

In this moment
As I sit in silence
I feel the vast emptiness
The void I cannot fill

And at this moment
I search for answers
I try to come to terms
With reasons I feel

My tears, they fall
I’m ready to drown
Yet my tears aren’t enough
Even when a river I’ve cried
For Your mercy
Is the ocean they flow to
And Your love
Is the limitless horizon in view

It’s in this moment
That I’m caught in Your grace
Your love fills the emptiness
Your resurrection, my seal

The Little Things That Are Mine…

Flashback Friday, perhaps? (:  I continue to surprise myself.

©djklmnopi ©debi620 please / pakiusap / por favor / ください, do not reproduce without permission. (:  For your eyes only. 😉

—–

After my last post in my old wordpress blog, I switched to Tumblr.  Back reading and scanning through my archives, I’m amazed at how I used to be (all the rants, raves and babaw moments; the angst I used to have, hobbies, and the humor, goodness the words I use!).  Honestly, my past self makes me smile. (:  I will give my self a pat on the back cos I turned out well. ((:  I will one day sit down and go through each year of my blog just to appreciate what God has walked me through.

If I Can … Maybe I Will

If I can make you smile
I’d like to say it’ll make my day
But your smile only lend my tears delay

If I can make you laugh
I’d like to say they’re music to my ears
But your laughter won’t stop my tears

If I can make this world any better
If I can make people peaceful to each other
If only I can make you see better
If only I can, maybe I can, maybe I will

How Can You?

How can you un-want a desire you have that’s second to living
When you feel that it will give your life its meaning?

How can you block a light that is brightly shining
When in the shadows you are spent, hiding?

How can you walk away from your heart’s beating
When it’s the only thing that keeps you breathing?

Feelings

A stare that launches butterflies in my stomach
A smile that sends me up to cloud nine
A touch that sends tingles to my spine
A voice so familiar yet catches me off-guard
A feeling making me giggly and weak in the knees
A glance that envelops like warm embrace
A hug that surely makes my day
A love, a feeling, here to stay.

It

When you find it
You hold on to it
Like you would of your most-prized possession.

Cleaving on to it
Savouring every inch of it
Like you do to your own dear life.

It may pass
It may never last
But right now,
It’s yours at last.

Though it may leave
And as it does you weep
But etched in your heart
A mark permanent and sweet.

And you know,
Once in your life you had it.
And you hope,
Once again you will find it.
