i love…

i see only you

i see only you

I love the sparkle in your eyes every time you look at me. I love the feeling of your hands against mine as we walk alongside each other. I love the way you smile at me and i love the sound of your easy laughter. I love the way we make fun of random things and laugh our hearts out without caring what other people might think. I love our movie marathon moments while you hold me in your arms as if you never want to let me go. I love the way you whisper ‘I love you’.

I love Wednesdays and I love those days in between because I know we’ll be seeing each other again soon. I love thinking about you on my way to our favorite spot and I love that tingling sensation I feel every time I see you standing there, waiting for me. I love walking next to you, I love looking at you when you talk. I love listening to your stories and I love laughing at your ‘sale’ moments. I simply love laughing with you.

I love your surprises. I love the flowers, chocolates, Gabriel, the blue teddy and even those simple and unexpected endearing things you say and do. I love your sweet text messages and our daily conversations. I love our talks about places we want to see together, about the plans we have in the future. I love thinking about those crazy things we aim to do someday. I love the ‘things’ that make our relationship more special. I love the feeling you evoke in me. I love our connection, everybody around us must be aware of the magic between us, which is undeniable.

I love your wisdom and your imagination. I love your sweetness, your sincerity, your passion. I simply love everything about you. And I love the fact that you love me.


Nais Ko’y Ikaw


 Nais kong magisnan ang bukang-liwayway
Na ikaw ang kasama
Madama ang simoy ng hangin
At lamig ng umaga

Nais kong hawakan ang iyong mga kamay
Sa tuwing titingin sa langit
Sabay nating bibilangin ang mga tala
Hanggang sa sila ay mawala

Nais kong masaksihan ang paglubog ng araw
Na ikaw ang kapiling
Ibubulong ko sa iyo ang nadarama
Kasabay ng paglamon ng dilim

Nais kong maramdaman ang ulan
Ang pagpatak nito sa pisngi’t katawan
At ang pagdampi ng iyong halik
Na sa aking puso’y di mawawaglit

How do you make things easier

The moment we said it was over

How do you face the morning sun

When you know that our love is gone


How could you go on and continue living

While I’m here on my own, hurting

I can’t help but wonder

How could your love make my heart suffer


How could you be so damn caring

Doing little things that make my heart spinning

How do you make each day so sweet

How do you fill the emptiness and make me complete


How do you begin a day without me

How do you set your heart free

How do you make the nights worthwhile

With tears in my eyes and a fake smile


How could you leave without saying goodbye

Now that you’re gone how could I not cry

How could you love me so damn much

When you know that you and I can never last


O, how will I ever convince myself

That our love is now an old book in a shelf

Tell me how to pretend to be fine

When I know in my heart you can never be mine

Life Without You


What is life without you

This I would never know

You are the air that I breathe

My every reason to believe


The rain won’t stop falling

Forever are the stormy seas

The birds will stop singing

With my heart slowly dying


There are no more moonlit walks

The sweet nights are over

No more goodnight kisses

Like a wish on a four-leaf clover


It will never be the same

Now that you’re gone

Hear me call out your name

Here is my heart to blame

When I Think of Love, I Think of You

Love is like a wildflower

And like the cold nights of the summer

It is like the morning dew

That freshens the day with the thoughts of you


Love is like the falling leaves

Everytime they fall, it makes us believe

That the memories of you will always stay

And somehow tomorrow is yet another day


Love is like a deep blue ocean

A wonderful sight that can never be forgotten

The wind and the leaves call out your name

And it truly sets my heart on a flame


Love is like the clouds in the sky

It is as free as solitary birds that fly

The love I feel continues to grow

Like the stream of water that will forever flow


Love is as perfect as a tear

Doesn’t really matter if you’re far or near

It is like a child’s laughter

The music it brings will stay forever


Love is like the stars at night

Make my darkest moments seem so bright

It is like the moon that shines

It would never fail even at sad times


Love is like a work of art

It’s the memory of the time when we fell apart

It isn’t important what they mean

What matters is how they make me feel


Love is like watching the sunset

It will always bring a feeling of content

As the sun eventually reaches the horizon

Like love itself leads us to confusion


Love is like a melody

It evokes so much memory

It is like the Christmas Eve

It is sad, it is lonely, it makes me grieve


Love is like the mountain

When you’re on top, it feels like heaven

But we all know whatever you do

You must go back down and be the old you


Love is like the vast open field

Everything just goes with the wind

The space gives us no boundaries

It gives you freedom to give into your worries


Love is like a scenery outside the car window

It passes by your eyes and you would never know

It’s like traveling through a bullet train

Seeing places that in our hearts will remain


Love is like poetry

It lets you dream and lets you see

Like poetry, has its own justification

No doubts, no fears, no questions


Love is like the sunshine

The hope it brings that everything’s fine

The loneliness of the night fades away

As the sun promises the beauty of the next day


I could never say what love really is

All I know is the feeling when it hits

For me, only one thing is ever true

When I think of love, I think of you.
