Some couples dream of being together,
Distance might have been a trigger.
Miles apart—love finds a way
To give the heart hope each day.
We weren’t one of those—some couples
But trigger still is the distance
Too close my face towards yours
Too tight my hand grasps yours
Too many spoken words
Space was non-existent
And breathing was heavy
I could just find us—lost and unsteady.
Hoping for a better day.
The former “us” is what I wished—
but reality strikes and tells me otherwise.
No chasing this time
No falling teardrops
Just a faint hint of “I hope this would STILL work”
But a new beginning
Wish I could wake up and be okay one day
My mind just tells me—
Honey, it don’t work that way.
If things will be better,
Work is required.
If things will be normal,
Effort is needed.
Two things you can’t give
Two things I can’t achieve—alone.
So there I still go wandering in my thoughts
Separating myself just only in my mind
Until the day comes—
When my shadow you can no longer find.
Maybe by then, we’ll be—
I passed out at 12AM, faintly waking up after 3 hours or so.
His face was beside me. His breathing, stabilized. In this state I felt he was the angel I’ve always waited to come. My hands stretch slowly to hold his face.
It was real. What WE have is real.
It felt perfect, all the stillness— slowly melting away all the doubts and fears. I wish everything was always like this, in pure blissful symphony of silence.
But I knew when morning comes, at the back of my mind, war will continue, the thoughts will flow. And I am left to ask, “is this worth fighting for?”. If I were to answer at this very moment..
a “Yes” will suffice.
- Bestie: How are you?
- Me: Surviving on coffee and shallow words of assurance.
So blessed to have my parents.♡
You know me. You know my ways. You know my thoughts.
I’ve been so far away from You, lately. I rarely.. rarely talk to you. And if I do, it’s but a faint cry of the battles I’ve had for the day, usually, it involves me asking for rest.
But today, after all that neglect from my part, You decided to unveil Your majesty by answering one of my prayers.
I got in a project that I had hoped to ba a part of in our company. For months I’ve been thinking of leaving this firm but now, I know, somehow, why You made me stay despite all the things that I’m stressed about.
Lord, Your live never fails. And it just.. leaves me awestruck. I can’t begin to imagine what You have in store for me. I know this is just the beginning, Lord, and I believe this happened because You want me back.. and I so— want to be back in Your arms, Father. This is more than a wake up call.
All of whatever what I do, whether be at work or at home, I want to dedicate it all to You and for Your name to be uplifted. Thank You, Lord!
I claim SUCCESS in this project.
I receive the protection You will pour upon us all.
Thank You Lord, so much!
