Later … waiting for you


How long must I wait before you appear?

Must I wait forever before you come to my rescue?

Are you my knight in shining armor as I envisaged?

Do you enjoy making promises and yet always fail?


I’ve been sitting by the window pane waiting for your arrival,

You got me busy doing the silliest thing … counting the raindrops.

Yes, I’ve been counting the eavesdrop from the rooftop to the ground,

Who would have thought I would be in this position waiting for you again?

Here I am all dressed up, panning my eyes up and down, left and right, waiting for you.


I angrily stare down at every innocent soul who walks up the street,

I can’t help but analyze every human frame and shadow that passes by.

Believe me, when I say this, they are nothing like you in any shape or form.


Oh, my dear! There goes the terrible thunder striking heavily on my roof again,

I see the flashes of lightning in the sky as people walk quickly in the streets,

I see a display of umbrellas in rainbow colors and there is a rainbow in the sky now,

As stated by someone very wise whom I met, every cloud has a silver lining.

I guess all these means something magical will emerge from this treacherous wait.


Later. Sadly, you arrived later than expected, and as you can see, the party is over now!







Heal … Blessed Hands

via Daily Prompt: Heal


Heal me, O Lord from all my pain and sufferings,

Heal me in places known and unknown to me,

Cast me not away from your holy presence,

Take away all my fear, anguish, distress and sorrow,

Touch me like never before and make me whole again.


Paint my life in all the beautiful colors mankind has ever seen,

I want to sing again a sonorous hymn in your honor,

I want to run and not be weary or walk and not faint

I want to dance again like a gazelle in the higher mountains,

I want to move my body and jump around like a little child with no worries.


Heal my body, mind, spirit and soul in totality,

Yes, you absolutely can heal me without missing a beat.

Only you can divinely heal me and make me whole again,

I want to live my life again to the fullest without any fear of pain,

I look forward to the day I won’t have to complain about pain anymore.


Please, bless me so my life can be a testimony of your goodness and mercy,

Make me soar like a mighty eagle because you Oh Lord are my strength,

Surely, I can have the blessings of good health here in the land of the living.

I want the whole world to see and know of your healing power and kindness,

Healing is in the blessed hands of the Holy One who made Heaven and Earth!

Prudent – My love for you is not …

via Daily Prompt: Prudent


I am prudent

…….in running the tap water and avoiding sweet things,

…… in keeping tabs of all our expenses and savings,

…… in turning the lights off when I leave the room,

…… in expressing myself to everyone and no one,

…… in appreciating the little and big things of life.


However, Prudence leaves the door ajar at the mere thought of you,

It leaves me terribly speechless, eyes wide-open and awe-struck.

Its fragrance evaporates from the universe at the mention of your name.

It makes my emotions run wild, hopeless and helpless pleading for your mercy.

It leaves me begging for more of your affection, presence, honor and integrity.

It leaves me yearning for more of your smile, time, charm, wisdom and kindness.


One thing is for sure, I am so glad amid all these chaos and drama,

I am not prudent in laughing with you and expressing how much I truly care about you.

I am not prudent in the time spent with you lying down in the fields counting the stars!
