Shall Our Memories Live?

Poem By Rey Sanidad

Shall our memories live, when the rain drops above us
And marks our last home with the rushing of mud water?
Shall the voices of those who profess that they love us
Ever mention our names, as we dreamlessly sleep?

Will their eyes ever dim at some fond recollection,
Or their hands ever plant a small flower over the breast,
Or will they gaze with a sad circumspection
At the stone tablets, which tell of our last solemn rest?

Ah! soon shall the hearts which our memories cherish
Forget, as they strive with the love of their own;
And even the last dim remembrance shall perish
As we peacefully slumber, unwept and unknown.

But if our lives, though travelling endlessly,
Are filled with some work in humanity's name,
Some uplifting effort, or self sacrifice, or self denial
Our memories shall still live in the temples of Fame.

A Friend Whose Name Is G.R.

Oh, the poets may sing of their Lady Loves,
And may rave in their rhymes about wonderful women,
But I throw my poetical wings to the breeze,
And soar in a song to my own lady friend.

Bring In The Light To A Friend...

As I sit by my window the whole night long,
I heard well up from the high balcony
A diva's passionate song.
I thought of myself so sad and lonely,

A Beautiful Woman In My Mind....

She is like a book that I read
Turning the pages carefully caressing
Its essence the words, letters, appreciating
Never wanting to dropp it until the end.

A Dream Of Hope....

When nobler lips than mine shall sing
of faith and holy love...
And angels around you closely cast
their glory from above...

I Loved You, Once...

Did you think my heart
Could keep its love unchanging,
Fresh as the flower buds that start
In spring, how strange?

My Friend G.R. Is Away...

My friend is away for sometime now
I feel as I did before,
In my lonely days, when far away
I yearned for her more than gold.
