On Valentine's Day

Days of the great sunrise
On the beach you and I
Wild flowers on the hills
Hand in hand we used to stroll

Rain pouring on our heads
Run under the trees’ shed
The adventures we had
By a kiss were culminated

That was then, happy days
Now everything’s just a haze
That was then, memories
Moments that have come to pass

At the rooftop, contemplates
Above me, smog hovers
At hand, a pack of cigarettes
Watching over the sunset

Where are you my beloved?
Perhaps, somebody else's bed
Do you think of me and regret?
Or am I that easy to forget?

How I wish I could go back
Turn the hand of the clock
When our lips were still locked
Where the birds used to flock

If I could have said I’m sorry
Maybe I am not in solitary
But my pride was my enemy
Admission was never easy

Today is Valentine’s Day
I will prepare the fireplace
On the table I will light candles
Pray you’ll remember our days

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
