"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

“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

"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

“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)
