Catching a breath


Everything is happening too fast...

Time was utterly swift
It was unnoticeable
The winds came
it carried our memories
as it passes
You're all grown up now

You've moved on
Yet here I remain
Sitting under the stars
couldn't resist
the temptation
of the past
sitting here...
Trying to taste the good times
Trying to feel how it was like

I've been vain and bitter
my mouth became an open grave
it wanted to devour you

to ruin you
to make you miserable
to make you experience
the crucible I endured
the loneliness I overcame
the sorrowful cries in my soul

my heart turned into stone
afraid to trust
afraid to love

Now, God has healed me
God has mended my wounded heart
Now, there are people waiting for me
people spending time listening to my stories
people sparing attention sharing my burdens
people who remind me that life after all is beautiful

Still I wonder where you are
are there people caring for you
are they listening to you

are they being true to you
even when I am unkind
behind this mask
lies a heart longing for you
New friends you now have
New faces, new character
I too have come far
New companions I also have
But I swear I think of you
and how I wish you knew
That amidst the hundreds of stars in my life
your star remains bright.

ang tunay na pagmamahal ay mananatili sa ating puso at magpapatuloy kahit na ito ay isang pangarap na lamang. :)

being here in you're site always gives me that familiar feeling-- i'm not sure what, but reading your words here induces some weird emotions... hehehe!

PinkNote said...

Guess you're writing from the depths of your journey... memories finding its own way to be told, to leave a mark, to devour the pain and forget the feeling.
Tama si Lucas, its an old familiar feeling which I confess I also felt years ago.

naks kaw ang halimaw tsong when it comes to writing

i just read this one and i was like so touched. astig.

do we really have to say goodbye i mean do people have to part ways khit at one point in time naging pareho silang naging part ng buhay ng isa't isa?

pero dba nga nobody can blame somebody if that was fate allows them to pass through.

masarap kase magsulat pag inLOVe

ang cool ng banner---like it so much....

lucas said...

not weird in negative way but otherwise :)

---
at least naexperience mo at a very young age. Not everyone is lucky enough. Hehe! Thanks. And I’m still not used to the “Master” thing. Hehe!

lucas said...

[our sufferings are nothing compared to the glory that will be revealed to us in the end.]

nakakaexcite noh? God really works in the most mysterious ways, sometimes so subtle we barely feel it because we are too preoccupied with other things.

lucas said...

naalala ko tuloy yung kantang 'Big Enough' Alam mo ba yun?

it goes:

God if you;re there
i wish you'd show me
and God if you care
then I need you to know me
I hope you don't mind me asking the question
But I figured you're big enough
I figured you're big enough.
