Traveling through space
Delving into the cosmos
Searching for your secret
As I venture the mystery behind the heavenly gates
I see wonders
Right before my eyes
I see beauty
Far beyond imagination
Something beyond comparison
If only I could grasp your entirety
Not leaving a part – a fraction of your totality
As I embrace your sublime perfection
You became the words
Floating in my thoughts
You became the portrait
Painted in my heart
If only I could fathom your power
How truly enormous you shine in the darkest of the night
You are the lyrics
In every song angels sing
You are the definition of joy
When spirits rejoice
Every time I praise your supremacy
I can feel your presence
How you speak to me
In every wish I make
I can feel your light
Giving me some sense of direction
That I may not go astray and living in irony
Cause you are the truth
That mends every parody
You are the celestial wisdom
Embedded in twilight
I am eternally grateful for this conspiracy
A spark that lights intimacy
And passion draws serenity
Right here this very moment
Twinkle, twinkle, little star
Diamonds planted in the night sky
How I wonder what you are

~Cher Dieu~ (Prayer for Paris)

Dear God
Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer
In the midst of darkness and despair
Lift the hearts in pain
Hear ye people lamenting in vain
Comfort the weary
Save the dreary
I beseech thee, Oh God
Let thy servant walk beside thee
That they may see the light amid disquiet
Let thy servant feel the touch of your hand
That those who draw upon your love
Will rise again and cling to You
When all else has fallen
When evil reign in sadistic souls
Let thy servant know
The strength from their own
That they may not forget to call upon Your most Holy Name
Through Your mercies
Let thy servant rest in Your cares
Placing their lives in Your gracious keeping
Let good triumph over evil
Let there be healing and love
Et ceci est ma prière
Pour Paris

(And this is my prayer for Paris)

(Let us pray the Lord’s Prayer)

“Notre Père, qui es aux cieux,
Que ton nom soit sanctifié,
Que ton règne vienne,
Que ta volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel.

Donne-nous aujourd’hui notre pain de ce jour.
Pardonne-nous nos offences
Comme nous pardonnons aussi à ceux qui nous ont offensés.
Et ne nous soumets pas à la tentation,
mais délivre-nous du mal,
car c’est à toi qu’appartiennent le règne,
la puissance et la gloire, aux siècles des siècles.”

(The Lord’s Prayer)



We live in a not so perfect world

This isn’t a perfect life

Change is something constant

People change

People come and go

They came to touch you

They came to teach you

And they left leaving you memories

I look back to see the footsteps printed in the sand

I paused for awhile

Embracing moments of solitude

When someone dear

Makes your eyes tear

When someone close

Have gone ahead

To venture into another place

When thoughts scattered in space

Though good bye is the saddest word

I will wish you peace

In the world where you are right now


~The Ugly Truth~


So I’ve been told

A lie that will set me free

A truth that will break your bones

Your tongue has no limits

No bounds when it speaks

Your mouth spits venom

A weapon that keeps me alive

Your pitiful stories

Within the four walls of my ears

Slandering your soul into shame

A secret laid open

A tale that destroys your being

And that’s the ugly truth

Of your ruthless sophistry


~If I Could, I Would~

If I could, I would
Touch your innermost space
And make love to you with grace


If I could, I would
Gather all the stars in the sky
And make a wish till it hurts no more to try

If I could, I would
Turn every tear to dust
Make every cheer last

If I could, I would
Be your hero for a day
Save you from pain and take it away
If I could, I would


~November Fifth~

Remembering the battle I fought so hard… it was a different kind of battle… it was a battle between life and death, faith and doubt, hope and despair, love and resentment. It was far from the battle of many ordinary people. It was a fight for freedom… to liberate myself from darkness that almost killed the cells in my body… It was a fight for love… to pierce my heart that was shrouded in fear, it was a fight for hope… to uncover every doubt playing in my thoughts…it was a fight for life… to reveal the secrets of death. Remembering the days when breathing was not free for me, when every air I breathe costs more than my salary. Remembering the days when smile is akin to cure. Every cheer is equivalent to a vial injected to my veins. Remembering the days when love and comfort from my family, relatives, and friends are worth more than any precious gems or jewels in the universe. Remembering the days when I was in the hands of the angels in scrubs/white uniform with stethoscope hanging around their neck. Their words of inspiration are like food for the soul. Remembering the people behind me… my family, friends, relatives, doctors and nurses… Remembering the people who were there for me and who are still with me today. All of you have a special place in my heart and may the good Lord bless you with a beautiful and blissful life.

Thank you Lord for giving me another life!!

November 5, 2012 a day worth remembering!!
