Rain

The sky is crying
Washing away all your tears
For another day

A New Found Love

A new found love came
One beautiful afternoon
With so much promise

On My Own

When I first walked this long road,
It seemed to me it had no meaning.
As if I’m walking forever,
Very lonely and weary.

But on the way I found you,
Taking this long road too.
Then I felt quite happy,
Now that I found a company.

You took care of me,
Helped me stood up,
Wiped my every tear,
And hold me close when I’m cold.

You showed me me glimpse
Of what the world is too me.
You taught me well of what is proper and not.
And you taught me how to love.

By the time I understand
What you have been teaching me,
I just found you
Leaving me behind.

After all those times you’ve spent in me,
You just left me with the knowledge to go on.
But how can I? When you, who taught me,
Left without me knowing the reason why.

Now I realize,
You want me to learn it on my own.
All I can do now is to thank you
For all those things you’ve done for me.


I wrote this back in high school, when we were graduating. I wrote it for my best friend, Lanie. Eventually, we edited a whole part of it and only the first 6 lines were added into a song we made that we entered into a graduation song writing competition traditionally being held in our school. The finalized song was titled Last Memories.

Unfinished Song

Somebody told me,
You’re in love with someone else.
Somebody told me,
To forget you and everything.
I guess I should
‘Cause things are really that way.

Sometimes I ask myself,
“Do I really love you that much?”
And I always answered,
“I guess, I really do.”
And in these times I think
That love is really unfair.

Why do I love you?
I can’t explain.
I know you need her
‘Cause you love her that much
But where do I really belong?
Only as an acquaintance,
Not even a friend.


This poem was a part of my old compilation of poems I wrote back in second year high school. My friend Carol and I made it into a song, yes, complete with melody and all. We wanted to form some sort of a band back then so we tried writing love songs. But in the end, we weren’t able to finish it.

Always

Every day I see you smile,
But once in a while, I see you cry.
Whenever you smile at me,
Through your eyes I can clearly see
The sadness deep down your heart
Though you hide it from me.

I know it hurts,
But that’s a part of life.
You’ll only realize
How much you love someone
The day you were hurt,
The day you shed tears,
The day your heart bleeds.

But though you love another
As my eyes can clearly see
It would be okay for me
Knowing when you need a shoulder,
Where you can cry on,
And seeking comfort and love,
Somehow you remember me
And I will always be by your side.


Back when I was really young, I keep a poetry journal. I used to compile them all neatly in clear books. Many years had passed, we moved around a lot after we lost our original house. I thought then that I had lost this compilation. But surprisingly, today, as I was cleaning up my stuff, I found this poem compiled neatly with the other old poems. I thought I would post them here, too. I don’t remember the exact day I wrote them anymore (except this poem, where I dated when I wrote it).  I just know that I wrote them all back in high school.
