A Special Day

Once every year, comes a special day
Thanking God for all the days that passed
For all the blessings, what can I say?
I’m grateful for the times with my family and friends

This day has been like no other
With a lot of happy saying from my mother
In joyful gladness as a family
My heart is full of glee

I saw a museum full of lovely paintings
I hear an orchestra, wow wow wee!
Filled with colors and music that makes me sing
And in my head an opus saw its birth

To cap the evening, I ate my favorite food
I’m having a joyous day!
The meaning of life I understood
Steadfast and glad shall I be come what may

Today, I grow older and wiser
Thankful to God my Maker!
This joy in my heart is Heaven
To Thee I offer my life now and forever, amen.

“I Wish”

Everywhere I have searched
For a friend like you
Amongst many places and many people
It was you I found to be true

Amidst all the sadness and fears
You were there to comfort me
Happiness I have gladly found
With you, I am truly free

I am sorry if at times I wasn’t there
But you understood why
You accepted me and helped me grow
And that is how I get by

I feel happier when I’m with you
In my heart there is so much peace
From loneliness to a companionship we need
From worries, a welcome release

I wish you all the happiness this life could give
May you find fulfilment and success
Hoping that my loving prayers be answered
So here’s wishing you the very best

New Love

You came into my life when I was still hurting
Searching and believing that true love is out there
I am eager to discover if you are really the one
Opening my soul for the heart that could share

You and I, we have much in common
The joy that is the sunshine of our day
The laughter we share brings happy moments
Our beautiful love has so many things to say

I treasure each second that I am with you
A loving comfort that brings much affection to me
When we are apart, I feel an emptiness inside
But when we are together, then I feel so free

I am a better person because of you
You have encouraged me to be the best of who I can be
With you in my life, I am glad to be me
For you have taught me how to be true

I wonder, will this new love of ours last?
Because I pray that we shall always be together
I feel so blessed to have found you
A new love that has begun hoping this will last forever

“Thinking of You”

When I think of you, I have only tender words to say
An image in my heart that bewilders my beloved soul
You are a friend I shall always cherish
Like the sun that shines its beautiful rays

Thank you for the many times you made me laugh
And helping me to open up my life’s concerns
Where would I be now without you, my friend?
Moments of happiness would never be enough

How I miss the moments we shared together
Hands that touch make life so timeless
Just remembering you brings warmth to my heart
The oneness of friendship that lasts forever

I feel so blessed to have met someone like you
True to the heart bringing awe to us both
You will always be in my thoughts wherever I may be
Seeing you again brings a rebirth to a life anew

You are God’s special gift to me
Heaven’s blessing that conveys the meaning of love
May the Lord grant you peace and happiness
A life of gladness that makes you feel free

“Lovely Days with You”

Every day we see each other
Hoping this moment lasts forever
We enjoy each other’s company
Expressing happy feelings so freely

Walking along the beach, you hold my hand
Enjoying the cool breeze and the soft sand
We laugh and play like children
A happiness that’s heaven-sent

We never seem to run out of things to say
When cheerfulness will always find a way
I always thank God for you
For a life that may be lived anew

"God's Love"

Lord, Your love is beyond measure
A love that is beautiful and pure
We all feel so blessed to have a Father like You
Accepting Your children to be loving and true

You care for all creatures, big and small
Earth we must protect as our heavenly call
Your love for us is brighter than any star
You yearn for us to be the best of who we are

We are touched by Your tenderness
Your concern is our happiness
O Lord, how can we thank You enough?
You were there for us even life was rough

You are the source of our joys
Your wisdom speaks through our inner voice
You are the light in every darkness
The love that shines in our gladness

We can never fully fathom the depth of Your love
But You guide us so we could be with You in Heaven above
We thank You Lord for Your love so deep
Your holy presence in our heart for our soul to keep

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

"Pure Thoughts"

Thinking of you brings a smile to my face
The light in my mind for happier days
I recall the joys you’ve brought to me
The sunshine in my life my heart could see

Your words of wisdom I could still hear
Living the advice you gave makes me feel you’re near
Your tender touch I could still feel
A love that brightens my soul makes it real

Though you’re so far I hear your voice so clear
When you’re on my side there is nothing to fear
Just remembering you and my spirit soars high
Memories we’ve shared brings me a happy sigh

We have gone through many times together
I hope that our friendship would last forever
You are God’s special gift to me
And in gratefulness I shall always be

As I prepare to return home soon
Our cheerful laughter shall be our musical tune
And our love for each other will ever grow
Then gladness in our life we shall always sow

"Virtues"

Kindness to those who needs it
Where Heaven and Earth would meet
Patience during trying times
When human and divine rhymes

Generosity to those who have less
In sharing and giving we are blessed
Fortitude during times of adversity
In unity as family that we’re free

Honesty in both word and deed
Loving gestures our heart could read
Indeed of all virtues, love is the greatest
When we appreciate to serve all the rest

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

"Nature's Beauty"

Thank You Lord for all the flowers and trees
The flora and fauna found throughout the Earth
Thank You Lord for all the mountains and hills
Thank You Lord for my eyes that sees all these

The colors of all creation express Your divine creativity
The beauty of all nature is evidence of Your abundance
I feel loved by all Your creations
A oneness of life as the spirit of Our Creator

The magnificence of the sunset reflects Your beauty
Each sunrise gives me new hope
Day and night we always think of You Lord
Every rainbow is a reminder of Your love

I am not afraid to feel Your creative love
Countless creations that speak that You are the Lord of Life
I am but a product of Your divine wisdom
You’re my genuine happiness

The life You gave is the life that we share
The love You shower upon us is the love we give to others
Selfishness is not Your language
But ensuring that everyone’s life is lived with generosity

I am so happy to have met you
A friendship that’s so new

“Sunny”

During times when I feel blue
Especially when I miss you
I simply remember our times together
Memories I will cherish forever

As I recall your beautiful smile

Always making my days brighter

So please come back soon as you can
Cummon lets fulfill our plan
You are God’s gift to me
Let us live together joyfully

"Joy"

A certain feeling in my heart
That we’ll never be apart
You are so much a part of me
Together we shall always be

What did I do to deserve you?
A heaven-sent love so true
I thank God for giving you to me
Because your love has helped me see

My life is filled with happiness
And your happiness is my gladness
Loving you has taught me so much
That care begins with a gentle touch

All the hurts in my past are gone
Because you taught me to look beyond
My future looks bright
When love is in our sight

Troubles no longer plague me
For an encouraging heart has set me free
I am truly blessed for having you
Because with you my life started anew

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

"Kapayapaan"

Sa himig ng mga ibon
Sa ihip ng hangin
Ang tinig ng katahimikan
Dinig ko sa aking puso

Damdamin ko’y maligaya
Pagka’t lahat ay mapayapa
Pag-ibig ay ating dalangin
Pagmamahalan ay adhikain

Subalit saan ko matatagpo
Ang tunay na sinusuyo
Sa kagandahan ng buhay
Ikaw ang siyang tunay

Ang hanap ng ating kaluluwa
Ay kung bakit nilikha
Ang kasiyahan ng pagkaka-isa
Makakamtan ng lahat

Nagsisimula sa pamilya
Hanggang sa buong mundo
Nguni’t ang sanhi ng kapayapaan
Ay pusong marunong magmahal

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

"Christmas"

The news from an angel
Announced to a virgin
A child to be born
So that all will be saved

A mother bearing an infant
Out of supreme love
Cared by a humble father
With such tenderness

A family in unity
To serve as model
Bringing all an awareness
That love conquers all

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