R.S. Mallari

You Are and More


Your love hovers upon me
Like the clouds above
Your care and patience
Can calm my restlessness
Like the riverbanks contain
The ripples of the water
Keeping it on hold and be still

Your forbearance rivals
The abundant dense forest
When on my darkest times
You shower me with light
Like the sunshine’s caress
Over the green thick grass
You are and more than that
Thank you for nursing my heart

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.

Beautiful poem, full of love and gratitude. I especially love "thank you for nursing my heart". Very tender. The photograph above is stunning and so goes with the "sun's caress of the thick green grass". Lovely.

Thanks Sherry, you are bad, I just have read your piece "Obelisk Moon" and it made me cry remembering my late mother who is also the subject of my verses above.

Eileen you're so gracious in sharing to me your precious pictures and I am glad I'm close to giving justice to your visual poetry.

Psalmist and Eileen, I must confess I am a "feminist" and it took over me to have used this template.

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