The burden
that’s upon me
is too heavy- to bear.
I know
that You are with me,
You love me
and You care.
I know
You always there,
there to lift
my heavy load
and give me
joy to spare.

Is is any wonder
that I love You so?
I know
that You are with me
no matter where I go…

Master’s Touch

21 06 2017

Who is the artist that walks the land
with a pallete and a paintbrush in His hand?

Softly He came on starry night,
tireless working ’till morning light.

Woodlands and fields, meadows green,
transformed by His hand to an autum scene.

He highlights His works with the sun’s mellow rays,
gently dissolving the early morning haze.

Above it He stretches and endless blue sky,
capturing migrating birds flying by.

A perfect picture of peace over the land
created with love by the Master’s own hand.

We Sing and Celebrate, Sakada [English Version]

21 06 2017

You made history, Sakada, to what you have done
Myself, my family, the Filipino community as one
From Oahu, Big Island, Mau’i and Kaua’i
Even in Lana’i and also in Moloka’i

You left your family but didn’t abandon them
Even thousand miles away from them
Your hardworks in the pineapple and sugarcane field
To give them a brighter future that no one can imagine

You’re always there to lend a helping hand
You’re the inspiration that everybody want
Because of love, caring and sharing to everyone
Filipino’s take pride for being number one

After 100 years , we sing and celebrate
Your sacrifices for us we will never forget
After 100 years, we sing and celebrate
Your dreams come true by giving us the best

We build memory for you
A FilCom Center building in Oahu
Another is the Binhi at Ani
Located in the island of Maui

Achievements of your hardships and sacrifices
We reached the glory as we offer You assurances
With other races in the world we can compete
Living in Hawai’i, we’re proud to be part of it

Present generation remember what you have done
Yesterday, today, in the future and beyond
Future generations will continue you have started
So that in every work and word, Filipinos always remembered!

You Alone

20 06 2017

When I whispered…

I love you
and promise not,
to love but you.

You vowed to me
and then I knew
your love for me
is really true.

For you alone
can keep my heart,
and you alone
can break it up.

Be carefull…

For it’s my heart
not a book
you can tear apart.

The joyous days
could pass me through
and you alone
that I can’t die

For someday
you may realize
you’ve got alone
a golden prize…

Easter Means Eternal Life

27 03 2015

-from a Christian Easter PoemFeatured imageA perfect God demands a perfect justice;
He cannot let us get away with sin.
We used God’s gift of our free will to trespass,
So heaven’s gates were closed; we couldn’t get in.Our sin required our blood, a sacrifice,
To atone for all the wrongs that we had done.
“But I love them!” cried our Father, filled with sorrow;
“I’ll send my only Son to be the one.”Good Friday marks the slaying of our Jesus,
The unblemished lamb, the perfect sacrifice.
He took our guilt and blame upon Himself,
So we could be with Him in paradise.On Easter morning, he came back from death;
He vanished from the tomb, the empty grave.
His resurrection means eternal life
For us, the ones he came to earth to save.This summarizes all the Easter story
And because of it, we’ll be with Him in glory.
