You Made Me Live (A Love that Inspires-Poem)

Couple 01

Life was just a thing to pass
Like hour and day that shall end
Existing alone, yes I was
That was before you came

Like wind from the south
You have touched my heart
Then the stars have shone
Gone are the nights of gloom

In my world that I have made
Where I used to cry and hide
Suddenly a breath of fresh air
Aroma of dead stone vanished

World that I so despise
Finally, light upon my sight
Beings that I so detest
Someone different I have met

You, who is so selfless,
Showed me another world
A world of hope and aspirations
A place I never knew existed

You seem so tired yourself
Battles of life you have fought
Yet you find it in your heart
to care and showed my worth

I have never live though I existed
I used to believe that there is none
Beyond the walls I have made
But you’ve open my eyes, held my hand

All my life, only way I have known
Is that everything and everyone
shall go into the gate of oblivion
You showed me other doors to open

I was astray, always been alone
Then we’ve met, you took me home
In your fragile heart, gave me a room
Then I began to live, born again

You taught me how to fly
Conquered all the fears inside
You taught me how to climb
Even the highest of mountains

I am on my way to greatness
So be there, be my witness
Because if you let go and leave
I shall fall, so don’t let me bereave

You are a part of all my dreams
The reason I decided to go on
Be gone and I shall be undone
So promise, you’ll forever hold my hand

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.

This poem will be perfect for my husband. :D Especially the very last stanza, that suits him well. :)


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