Over a Cup of Tea (Quatern)


Lonely lad, what is troubling you?
Your face is so blunt, without hue
Come now; let’s have a cup of tea
Table for two, under the tree

Tell me or give me, even a clue
Lonely lad, what is troubling you?
I hate to see you sad like this
Talk to me, not a word I’ll miss

When the burden is so heavy
Do not ever soak and feel sorry
Lonely lad, what is troubling you?
Let go, be free, enjoy your youth

Life’s a journey, it’s a long way
Yours has just began, let it sway
Come to me, if you cannot chew
Lonely lad, what is troubling you?

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.
