The Gift

Crystal heart pendant


Used to be as cold as ice
life is just but a blur
nothing to live for
colors unseen by eyes

an empty world I’ve known
been an isolated rock
time just pass by like wind
and I, in a cave trapped

then a shimmering light
reflection of a million hue
so beautiful, new to my sight
then, there was you

shadows that used to be
finally faded and vanished
now only light I see
with you beside me

a fragile crystal, your heart
you offered and gave to me
I will cherish and hold on to it
a gift that I shall forever keep

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.
