YOU are the Reason

The time we spent together
are the times I have valued my life

you are the river that runs
through me whenever I feel the void

you are the air that inflates me
whenever I feel like I’m giving up

you are the melody that plays
which accompanies me through the journey

I was once alone in the dark
you took my hand and showed me the world

made yourself as the beacon
so I could go on and sail again

I would have drowned
but you have revived my esteem

now that you are with me
I know there’s no battle I couldn’t win

time I have wasted alone
with you time of contentment I have found

so be beside me on this quest
for this is not mine alone to travel

let us reach for the heavens
hand in hand, we’ll realize our dreams

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.

Nicely done! Well crafted…


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