Here’s something to touch our hearts…

19 02 2007

Sa aking pagtanda, unawain mo sana ako at pagpasensyahan. Kapag dala ng kalabuan ng mata ay nakabasag ako ng pinggan o nakatapon ng sabaw sa hapag kainan, huwag mo sana akong kagagalitan. Maramdamin ang isang matanda. Nagse-self-pity ako a tuwing sisigawan mo ako.

Kapag mahina na ang tenga ko at hindi ko maintindihan ang sinasabi mo, huwag mo naman sana akong sabihan ng “binge!” paki-ulit nalang ang sinabi mo o pakisulat nalang. Pasensya ka na, anak. Matanda na talaga ako.

Kapag mahina na tuhod ko, pagtiyagaan mo sana akong tulungang tumayo, katulad ng pag-aalalay ko sa iyo noong nag-aaral ka pa lamang lumakad.

Pagpasensyahan mo sana ako kung ako man ay nagiging makulit at paulit ulit na parang sirang plaka. Basta pakinggan mo nalang ako. Huwag mo sana akong pagtatawanan o pagsasawaang pakinggan. Natatandaan mo anak noong bata ka pa? kapag gusto mo ng lobo,paulit-ulit mo ‘yong sasabihin, maghapon kang mangungulit hangga’t hindi mo nakukuha ang gusto mo. Pinagtyagaan ko ang kakulitan mo.

Pagpasensyahan mo na rin sana ang aking amoy. Amoy matanda, amoy lupa. Huwag mo sana akong piliting maligo. Mahina na ang katawan ko. Madaling magkasakit kapag nalamigan, huwag mo sana akong pandirihan. Natatandaan mo noong bata ka pa? Pinatyagaan kitang habulin sa ilalim ng kama kapag ayaw mong maligo.

Pagpasensyahan mo sana kung madalas, ako’y masungit, dala na marahil ito ng katandaan. Pagtanda mo, maiintindihan mo rin.

Kapag may konti kang panahon, magkwentohan naman tayo, kahit sandali lang. inip na ako sa bahay, maghapong nag-iisa. Walang kausap. Alam kong busy ka sa trabaho, subalit nais kong malaman mo na sabik na sabik na akong makakwentohan ka, kahit alam kong hindi ka interesado sa mga kwento ko. Natatandaan mo anak, noong bata ka pa? Pinagtyagaan kong pakinggan at intindihin ang pautal-utal mong kwento tungkol sa iyong teddy bear.

At kapag dumating ang sandali na ako’y magkakasakit at maratay sa banig ng karamdaman, huwga mo sana akong pagsawaan alagaan. Pagpasensyahan mo na sana kung ako man ay maihi o madumi sa higaan, pagtyagaan mo sana akong alagaan sa mga huling sandali ng aking buhay. Tutal hindi na naman ako magtatagal.

Kapag dumating ang sandali ng aking pagpanaw, hawakan mo sana ang aking kamay at bigyan mo ako ng lakas ng loob na harapin ang kamatayan.

At huwag kang mag-alala, kapag kaharap ko na ang Diyos na lumikha, ibubulong ko sa kanya na pagapalain ka sana … dahil naging mapagmahal ka sa iyong ama’t ina…

Eternal Embrace

Eternal Embrace

This really strucked me, It must have been true that Eternal Love Exists…

From Yahoo News :





Lovin` you each day of my life…

How wonderful to have you in my life!
All my feelings whirl about my heart!
Perhaps I can’t contain that I’m your life;
Perhaps I don’t know how or where to start.
You have me always, no matter what you do:

A gift I give my gift, joyously.
Nothing means as much to me as you;
Nothing else so fully makes me, me.
If I had everything that God could grant,
Very little there would bring me peace.
Enwrapped in you is everything I want:
Rapture, warmth, affection, sweet release.
So strong my love! So happy, sure, and strong!
A thousand thousand years would not seem long!
Reason tells me everything must end,
Yet you will always be my lover-friend.





All about Cards and Poems

8 09 2005

Image231_1Been cleaning my room one day and i found a familiar box… the box i used to open every night and secretly kept underneath my bed … the box that used to make me feel loved and special…the box that made me a dreamer…. now it’s
there accumulating dust iside the unused
shelf of my cabinet…

I opened it, memories flowed unto me
like a rushing river…

Image233.jpgInside are cards from two different people, cards that’s both full of endearing words and sweet promises… cards that made me smile… cards that made me cry… been wondering why we get to forget our promises? forget the things that once made us happy…?

and worst! dedicate the same poem we made for one person to another …

“greatest gift I received from a princess that once lived,lived only in my dreams… dreams so deep…dreams so dim…dim it was till the dream came true…true as the true love i found in you”….

well it’s not that i’m angry nor jealous but i’m just wondering, bakit hindi ka na lang ulit gumawa ng ibang tula para sa kanya? or maybe you also didn’t made that poem for me? well….





Great Teachings…

Image001TRUST is a very important
factor for all relationships. When trust is
 broken, it is the end of the
relationship. Lack of trust leads to
 suspicion, suspicion
generates anger, anger causes enmity and en
 may result in
separation.

Image002NO
POINTING FINGERS

We all look forward to being loved and respected. Many people are afraid of
losing face. Generally, when a person makes a mistake, he would look around to
find a scapegoat to point the finger at. This is the start of a war. We should
always remember that when we point one finger at a person, the other four
fingers are pointing at ourselves.
If we
forgive the others, others will ignore our mistake too

Image003CREATING
PERFECT RELATIONSHIPS?

There is a saying that a perfect match can only be found between a blind wife
and a deaf husband ,because the blind wife cannot see the faults of the husband
and the deaf husband cannot hear the nagging of the wife. Many couples are blind
and deaf at the courting stage and dream of perpetual perfect relationship.
Unfortunately, when the excitement of love wears off, they wake up and discover
that marriage is not a bed of roses. The nightmare begins.

Image004NO
OVERPOWERING

Many relationships
fail because one party tries to overpower another,or demands too much. People in
love tend to think that love will conquer all and their spouses will change the
bad habits after marriage. Actually, this is not the case. There is a Chinese
saying which carries the meaning that "It is easier to reshape a mountain or a
river than a person’s character."

It is
not easy to change. Thus, having high expectation on changing the spouse
character will cause disappointment and unpleasantness.

It would be less
painful to change ourselves and lower our expectations..

Image005RIGHT
SPEECH

There is a Chinese saying which carries the meaning that "A speech will either
prosper or ruin a nation." Many relationships break off because of wrong speech.
When a couple is too close with each other,we always forget mutual respect and
courtesy. We may say anything without considering if it would hurt the other
party.

Frequently exchanging these remarks plants the seed for a bad relationship. It’s
like a broken egg – cannot be reversed.

Image006PERSONAL
PERCEPTION

Different people
have different perception. One man’s meat could be another man’s poison.

Thus, do not be too bothered by others words if our conscience is
clear..

Image007BE
PATIENT
Too often we fail to recognize the difference between the person and the
performance. We forget that forgiveness is greater than revenge.

People make
mistakes. We are allowed to make mistakes. But the actions we take while in a
rage will haunt us forever.





Let Go

16 07 2005

This story is about you and that boy. The boy with
the dreamy brown eyes who looked at you with so much melancholy on
those lazy afternoons you shared back in the past. He made you laugh, made you feel
poetic. He lived in a romantic world, and he took you with him. You
just forgot to bring the ticket so you were dropped off from the bus
and was made to walk back home alone.

He used to worship the ground you walked on. He used to pluck
flowers for you in the sidewalk. Played basketball with you under the
rain, and made you sleep on his bed.  He was perfect.
He was beautiful, and mysterious, and so sad at times that you wanted
to protect him from the bad memories, which haunt him on his sleep. You
used to want to kiss his lips when he made an effort to laugh at your
jokes. You wanted to hold him longer than the hugs you occasionally
shared, but you never had a chance to. You chickened out too easily,
and you always cared about what other people will say.

You will never be over him. It’s been years and you’re
still smitten. Pathetic. It was your fault you two never had the chance
to be together. It wasn’t his fault that you chose the boy who was
stable, bright, and… ordinary. You thought that’s what you
needed. You were so ready to throw everything you two shared then. You
just wanted to be friends, that kind of bull. And he bought it. He
nursed his heart back into health and pursued a life that has nothing
to do with you. And it used to be alright. Yes, you look at him from
time to time, feel a certain regret at the deepest corner of your
heart, but you manage to ignore it. You believed you two were never
meant to be.

It’s been  years since the last time you saw adoration in
his eyes when he looked at you. Years since the last time you
shared the afternoon
sun, played with the strands of his hair. Years since you said you
two will never be anything else but friends. Years since you walked
away from his life.

You need to let go. You need to forget. You have to stop fooling yourself that the
universe will conspire to get you two together again. The universe
doesn’t even think you deserve a second chance.

This story somehow reminds me of someone in my past and that someone kept on loving and caring. I admit,  I might have been blind when i was younger, for not being able to see the wonders of his love and to let go of somethng that might have been good… 
sigh…. Its so sad to be loved and cared for by someone you can’t love back anymore.

Trying to forget someone you love is like trying to remember someone you never met
