R.S. Mallari

Not the Perfect One but the Right one



What I have is all yours
My heart is in your hand
The only treasure I have
I don’t have a pot of gold
Nor a chest of jewelries

I won’t buy an island
As I don’t have the means
But I can take you to paradise
I’ll make it for you instead
Here with me, in my arms

Bigger men are all around
Vying for you like a trophy
With their big bank accounts
Fancy cars and promises
All I did was to love you

You chose the one with the heart
And not one of those rich kings
You held my hand, walked with me
A commoner, not an aristocrat
You ignored the nobles

You see me as a knight
And wipe away all my doubts
Helped me to catch a horse
The horse now we share
The witness of our undying love

I guess there can never be
Anyone that deserves your beauty
And I will never claim to be
I won’t even try to become the perfect one
Instead, for you I’ll try to be the right one

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.
