"Beauty"

Wonder beyond the senses
Awe without understanding
Goodness the heart could see
Beauty beyond the physical

Feeling the meaning of virtue
Experiencing the depth of life
Discovering the power of the soul
Unearthing the strength of the heart

An unseen love now visible to all
Through acts of genuine caring
Beautiful are the nurturers of life
Wonderful are all who are alive

*poetry by Nimia Gamo (purple lines) and Jobert Abiva (blue lines)

"Heaven"

A place called God’s home
A place I wish I can call my own
Where love abounds for all
Where peace is everywhere

But through family love in Humanity
Through genuine care for others
God’s Love becomes heartfelt
We all feel safe and warm

God found in everyone’s love
The same God in my heart
Heaven as loving families
Heaven as caring people

*poetry by Nimia Gamo (purple lines) and Jobert Abiva (blue lines)

“To Mother Mary”

We are but children of God
We have a Mother who loves us so
She guides with kindness
She cares with tenderness

Then our love for Baby Jesus
Binds us as one holy family
Motherly affection that we received
We share with all other people

Heaven belongs to our family love
We are grateful for having a sweet Mother
Care for Baby Jesus we give
We are all united by love for eternity

*poetry by Nimia Gamo (purple lines) and Jobert Abiva (blue lines)

“Loved”

In our search for happiness
In our need to belong
Yearning for care
We long to be loved

Wherever we may go
Where we may find ourselves
How countless people there are
Waiting to be loved

Then the answer to our quest
Lay within ourselves
Love shared with one another
Selfless giving leads to happiness

*poetry by Nimia Gamo (purple lines) and Jobert Abiva (blue lines)

"Grandma"

How nice to see you
I love to touch your hand
It’s great to hear your voice
Your smile makes me happy

I love to hear your words of wisdom
You make me laugh with your humor
Happiness belongs to all ages
Like we all belong to God

There is much to learn from you
I take delight in your encouragement
You are full of wonder Grandma
You are forever young

You appreciate the kindness we give
Like music and melody
You accept me for who I am
Listening to stories we enjoy

I admire you very much
I look highly up to you
Your joy I will always remember
Thank you so much for everything

“Poem in My Heart”

As I look upon the sky and sunshine touches my eyes
As I gaze upon the beauty that the heavens has lain before me
The splendour of God’s greatness found in joy and happiness
Oh I am filled with awe and wonder at all of nature’s grandeur

Because God’s glory that brings awe is beyond what we saw
It is an expression of the deep love of our Father above
The blessing of families when God’s Love sets us free
The blessing of living that He granted every human being

In gratefulness we believe for the care we receive
We ought to share to all people everywhere
Countless good deeds abound where Heaven is found
And there is so much joy and cheer when genuine love is near

*poetry written by Nimia Gamo (purple lines) and Jobert Abiva (blue lines)

"Everlasting"

like a child nourished by mother's love
lovingly nurtured to grow healthily
care that comes from above
through affection that we're free

like birds flying without any worry
abundance of love brings no hurry
vast oceans as far as the eyes can see
peaceful people we could ever be

like flowers in the field so carefree
Heaven-sent peace for all Humanity
as babies sleep so soundly
being cared for brings serenity

like animals that roam the forest
and the fish that swim in the sea
there is a time for all to rest
depending on God's Love is the best

like butterflies that go from flower to flower
caring for all creation we must consider
all of nature is ours to love and nurture
for the sake of Earth and Humanity's future

*poetry written by Nimia Gamo (purple lines) and Jobert Abiva (blue lines)

"You"

Where do I see your heart?
How do I know for whom it beats?
I yearn to understand the person you are
I long to know you more

Beyond smiles and laughter I feel
More than gentle touches I sense
A child in you that yearns for care
A child that the mother in me loves

Different people we may be
We can be one in our need for affection
The care you need is a joy I give
You are one reason I live

*poetry written by Nimia Gamo (purple lines) and Jobert Abiva (blue lines)

“Someday”

Someday the birds will sing
They will sing for you and me
Someday the flowers will bloom
Just as our love will blossom

As long as the sun rises at daytime
And the moon shines at night
Stars will always twinkle for us
Our friendship will forever grow

Because what is truly important
Are hearts beating for God
Gratefulness for one another
Someday is here to stay

*poetry written by Nimia Gamo (purple lines) and Jobert Abiva (blue lines)

“The Child in Me”

Yearning for your embrace
Longing to see your face
The gentleness of your touch
Your sweet caress I love so much

A tender kiss and holding hands
You watch over me as I play in the sand
Together by the beach facing the sea
We enjoy the sunset, just you and me

Joyfully running, laughing and swimming
Just being with you makes my heart sing
Day and night our companionship grows
Mother dearest, I love you so!

*poetry written by Nimia Gamo (purple lines) and Jobert Abiva (blue lines)

“The Joy of Living”

Every heartbeat and every breath I make
Every move and step I take
Your happiness is in my thoughts
Your welfare is always what I have sought

From morning until evening I care for you
Loving you is something I was meant to do
From every minute and every hour
Moments are sweet when they are ours

Everything in life becomes meaningful
All things have become beautiful
Because of a love between you and me
It is such a joy to live, our love sets us free

*poetry written by Nimia Gamo (purple lines) and Jobert Abiva (blue lines)

"Song in My Heart"

A melody of love I could hear in my heart
A love so beautiful from the very start
The harmony of affection that we share
The symphony between us showing that we care

Notes that sing loving tunes of high and low
With lyrics that express deep feelings that we know
Sweet melodic sounds of kindness pleasing to the soul
Words of gentleness soothing to us all

For love is a chorus that praises all that is good
Love is a constant refrain regardless of mood
Stanzas that blend the poetry of an artist’s love
This never-ending song could come only from above

“An Afternoon of Art”

Where shall i see beauty?
Where blooming flowers blow
Within and beyond I could see
To the world of art I go

Life on Earth my inspiration
Also like paintings on the wall
Forming clay is my soul’s most intimate expression
It is seeing beauty in all

Sharing the love in my heart
Knowing the Lord we will never part
Above and beyond He understands me
Forever His child, I will always be

All day, Your kindness is in my thoughts
The rainbow in the sky is beauty
The soil I stand on, the air I breathe, thank You Daddy
You, O Lord, are so very loving

Beyond the creations of Our Creator
The moon, the stars, clean rivers
Touch, see, smell and taste, and be a conqueror
And be a true artist forever

"AWED"

the sun glows in the sky
its beauty makes me sigh
a flock of birds flying freely
giving a sense of serenity

God's glory beyond the senses
breath-taking to behold
of what we thought could bring us awe
could draw us closer to the Lord

the story of peace, joy and love
the same story to be retold
kindness we learned from above
we share to other people we know

for what is truly beautiful
is also very meaningful
beyond the eyes can see
is what the heart can feel

everything becomes a blessing
the stars in the sky and the fishes in the sea
the flowers in the fields and fruits in the trees
most of all, the entire Humanity

*poetry written by Nimia Gamo (purple lines) and Jobert Abiva (blue lines)

"Love Eternal"

Where would my heart go?
To the Lord does my heart flow
How do I live?
In God’s Love that I believe

With God nothing is impossible
I am His beloved child
With kindness that everyone is able
The Love of God so gentle and mild

With what do I compare the love of the Lord?
But countless families nourished with kindness
In Jesus’ love I am always ready to confess
For He is ever willing to welcome in forgiveness

In generations to come that God’s Love is forever
His love I am forever grateful
For He sees the beauty in me
Blessing us with wisdom to be free

Thank You for all Your blessings
Praise You Lord, for Your Providence
Eternally shall our heart sing
I will worship You with all my being

"the star"

"Beautiful"


Clean skies and blooming flowers

All ready for the Golden Summer

The songs of birds bring warmth to my heart

The beauty of nature is a work of art


The creatures that roam the planet

Big and small I’m so fascinated

All running, skipping, and jumping under one sun

Witnessing the glory and vibrancy of all life


I look within myself, and I pleasantly discover

The flowers that bloom within

That love is everlasting

And that my passion for nature is never ending


Appreciating the wonders of Earth truly comes from the heart

Because they reflect how awesome our Creator is

He is a rose that never withers

He is my Lord who embraces me


I am but a dew drop in a pool

I am but a beam of light from the sunshine of Heaven

I am but one in the ocean of Humanity

Yet, I shall never lose my purity


*poetry written by Nimia Gamo (purple lines), Jobert Abiva (blue lines), Lovely Abiva (pink lines), Julio Singson (green lines) and Noe Carillo (brown lines); they took turns in writing line by line

"Inspired"

Music that my heart can hear

Paintings so lovely to behold

Fire that does not burn but warms

Art that comes from the soul

Friendship that last forever

Passion that mark special moments

Painting on the wall that reminds me of you

Relatives who bring fond memories

Love that is sincere and true

Peace that reigns within

Food that nourishes us each day

Unity that binds us all

Child you are forever

Sight is a gift from God

Jesus is the Master of all

"Wonderful"

“Wonderful” (by Nimia, Jobert, Lovely & Julio; November 25, 2009 Wednesday; Greenbelt5, Makati City)

The first taste of sunlight to my eyes

How beautiful God’s creations might be

The great beauty of the world

The glory of nature brings so much delight to me


In the vastness of the universe with all the stars, planets and galaxies

I will never be lost without You

There is too much to discover

There is a lot to see – up in the sky, down to the sea


Because amidst all the creations there is – I have found you

Thank you for loving me as I am

You are truly the air I breathe

You give meaning to my life


A love that is like sunshine, enlightening my heart and mind

A love that is full of happiness and joy

A love that opens up my heart

A love that is all encompassing


May happiness be always with you, wherever you may be

May Our Lord Jesus Christ be with us all

I have learned so much from you

I am a better person because of you

“Happy Thoughts” (by Nimia, Jobert & Lovely of “Living Poets Society”)


The sunrise in the horizon

The sun about to set down from the sky

Beauty is so much revealed

Am awed with wonder that makes me sigh


Lovely roses, happy sunflowers

Dreaming of peace and happiness

The birds, the trees, the scent of fresh air

Bring so much joy deep within


Thank You Lord for giving us eyes to see

For beautiful Earth, for loving families, and a caring Humanity

For these and more, no words of gratitude suffice

We are nothing without You Lord


Creations so many that all of us must be thankful for

Fellow creatures so great and wonderful

Many things so small and big

How life has become so exciting!


As far as the eyes can see, there is splendour around me

Life is full of challenges as it seems

But surprises await those who see with the heart

And serenity to those who dwell on happy thoughts

---------------


“My Way to Heaven” (by Nimia, Jobert & Lovely of “Living Poets Society”)


What is Heaven? But found in the heart

Deeds of love, words of comfort

Thanksgiving we must also share

We must all do our part


I seek my Lord and I see Him in my fellowman

As I follow Your commandments

Uplifting the life of all becomes our cause for living

Reaching out to each and everyone


I am not afraid Lord, You are near

Because I already see You in all our acts of charity

Having faith in You makes me strong

With You I don’t have any fear


The hope You gave, is the hope we give

Your kindness we are bound to spread

With Mama Mary also we are at peace

Because in You Lord Jesus we believe


So, where is the way to Heaven? The answer is many

How can we ever thank You Lord?

For countless people to love, until future generations to come

With Your heart we cannot but love all Humanity





"two friends"

in my search for friendship
in my need for a friend who is true
amidst all the people in the world
i found someone like you

joy i would like to give
laughter i would like to share
in our friendship that i believe
we will become a happy pair

our life becomes a special moment
our days are like strings of pearl
smiles more precious than diamonds
bring my mind to a whirl

wishing you happiness in life
hoping you stay ever in the light
two friends who care for one another
two souls so pure and bright

your kindness has touched my heart
your love has endeared you to me
may blessings abound for us both
may we be friends for eternity
