After the rain, a rainbow appears
That mystifies the nature of different hues
At the end of its point is a pot of gold
It creates a mystery that has long been told.

The scent of a perfume that rouse constantly
So magical and remains a mystery
Creating a potion that is irresistibly
That captures the senses of everybody

Songs that creates joy and pleasure
It brings contentment to our inner soul
A wonderful emotion, full of composure
So difficult to describe, thus unexplainable

The sun that kisses to the coldness of the sea
The waves dancing to the flow of glee
It amazes the stillness and tranquility
In the vast ocean of serenity

The mountains, the spring, and the valley
Is a sight to behold on its lush greenery
So marvelous that anyone can see
The creation of divinity will forever a mystery

Shadow of My Soul

As I walk through the shadows of time
I never thought this life of mine
Complicated, full of struggles and sorrow
I had realized that I need a life of joy to borrow

The loneliness that I feel
In the darkness of my solitude
Nobody knows the pain that I bear
In my world that is so hard to explain

Wounds in my heart that needs to be heal
So deep, so hurtful, and so real
That cuts in the threshold of my flesh
And invades to my soul of sadness

The searching continues to hound
As the shadows of my soul abound
To the chamber of misery and despair
That grips to the inner self of solitaire

I don't consider myself to be "somebody" but I'm trying to be humane in the sense that I want to share what my thoughts and aspirations in life are. To others I may be boring, but to my friends, I may be worthy of a human being. Please consider me your friend as I'm longing to be one.

Time for Rest

If our body, soul, and spirit
Are to function at their best,
Time is needed for renewal -
Time for leisure, time for rest - D. De Haan

When I See You Smile

My heart beats faster
Whenever I see you smile
It makes my world bigger
And getting much better.

Your smile is an attraction
That nobody can’t resist
The joy it brings is very contagious
So endearing and so precious.

A smile that makes me happy
On a day that seems to be gloomy
An inspiration, sacred revelation
So addictive, full of affection.
