love doesn’t knows no time

*

 

 

just like an old song

spinning inside heads

wondering if love may grow

and took over the hostility like an ocean wave

washed away the anger with the drifting tide

 

*

like the dawn breaking the night

leave the wound of the past

assuring that we will be able to face tomorrow

to see the rising sun with smile

lighting up the day for everyone

 

*

though so much pain we’ve perceived

there is also so much hope lies in the future

cannot be predicted but will be faced

and the time will lead us

*

though it’s going to be a long journey

we’ve should begin now

do not ask when will we stop

because love doesn’t knows no time

I WISH YOU ENOUGH.

Recently, I overheard a mother and daughter in their last moments together at the airport
as the daughter’s departure had been announced. Standing near the security gate, they hugged
and the mother said: “I love you and I wish you enough.”

The daughter replied, “Mom, our life together has been more than enough.
Your love is all I ever needed. I wish you enough, too, Mom.”
They kissed and the daughter left.

The mother walked over to the window where I sat.
Standing there, I could see she wanted and needed to cry.

I tried not to intrude on her privacy but she welcomed me in by asking,
“Did you ever say good-bye to someone knowing it would be forever?”
“Yes, I have,” I replied. “Forgive me for asking but why is this a forever good-bye?”

“I am old and she lives so far away. I have challenges ahead and the reality is the next trip
back will be for my funeral,” she said.

When you were saying good-bye, I heard you say, “I wish you enough.
” May I ask what that means?”

She began to smile. “That’s a wish that has been handed down from other generations.
My parents used to say it to everyone.”
She paused a moment and looked up as if trying to remember it in
detail and she smiled even more.

“When we said ‘I wish you enough’ we were wanting the other person to have
a life filled with just enough good things to sustain them”.
Then turning toward me, she shared the following, reciting it from memory,

“I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.

I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.

I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.

I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.

I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.

I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.

I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.”

She then began to cry and walked away.

***

They say…., it takes
a minute to find a special person.
an hour to appreciate them.

a day to love them.
and an entire life to forget them.

dry in the hugs

when the sun began to set, the red of twilight dims
she staring far to the sky edges
with flowers in her grips

the white doves marching home, take along the hopes and dreams
flying among the dark gray clouds
avoid the promise to be fulfilled

the moon reluctant to smile, the stars twinkling lazy
the song of night start singing
penetrating deep into soul

the song of night sounded away, fading along with hopes
let the flowers dry in her hugs
carve the sorrow of waiting

for a better tomorrow

when the sun rises
the flowers and leaves humming
butterflies smiling
crochet the spirit of today
 
if the sun is sad
the sky became overcast
creating restless and agitated
seizing the spirit of today
 
if the sun cry
the water falling on the earth’s lap
moistens the day’s hope
postpone the trip of today
 
now the sun sets
releasing today’s fatigue
the haze started spread among of night
carves a dream for a better tomorrow

trip to a dream

 

don’t let the moon dims

since it light can bright my way me in the dark

don’t let the stars cry

since it’s tears could fade my passion

don’t let the sun smile

since it’s light could scorch my hope

but let the wind blow

then it could fly me to my dreams
