Keen to details ‘til all systems in place;

people around you have to cope with your pace!

Your works are exemplary and worthy of praise;

You are a role model, a woman of grace!

 

A mentor, a mother, a leader, a friend,

a pastor with a love that sticks to the end.

Your hands, though full, you are willing to lend

to guide us to the One on whom we must depend.

 

Your loads are heavy we know it’s true,

For you carry us in prayers ‘til you see us through.

Yet this time allow us to bless you in a way you’ll construe –

Receive our deepest appreciation, Pastora K – we love you!

Summit

Nandun ka nga ba sa itaas at aakayin ako sa pag-akyat?

SummitSa pagtahak paakyat sa tuktok ng bundok,

Ininda ang lahat ng mahihirap na pagsubok.

Tangan ang bigat ng mga damdaming naimpok

Umaasang sa itaas masasaid na ang pagkalugmok.

 

Ang mga hakbang ay tila pabigat na ng pabigat

At ang sikat ng araw ay bumabakas na sa aking balat.

Habang papalapit sa dulo, ako’y lalong naaatat –

Nandun ka nga ba sa itaas at aakayin ako sa pag-akyat?

 

Nakarating ako sa itaas – ngunit walang “ikaw” na nadatnan;

Tinapik na lang ang sarili, sinabing “okay lang yan”.

Mabuti na lang ang paligid ay kay inam pagmasdan

Ngunit kailangang tanggapin na ako’y babalik pa rin sa pinagmulan.

 

Ilang bundok pa ba ang aking aakyatin?

Ilang trail, ilang summit, ilang traverse ang tatahakin?

Ilang mountaineers pa ang aking sasalubungin?

Dahil ako’y umaasang ikaw na ang susunod kong babatiin.

ABC’s of Love

With all these letters, still words cannot express.

ABC's of LoveAlluring beauty is what you’ve got

Blissful feeling, hope will end not.

Crazy about you, eyes, lips, everything about you,

Delighted to take part in everything you do.

Enchanted like caught in the heat of May,

Falling for your antics day after day.

Good times and bad times may come between us

Holding hands, together, anything we’ll both outlast.

I love you, I mean it and it sums it all,

Joy, peace and everything in between already took its toll.

Kindred spirits, that best describes when in love we both fell,

Laughter, food, pictures and prayer as well.

Mesmerizing looks, oh I can never resist,

Never ending love to you I’ll always insist.

Other half, that’s what you are to me,

Passionately I’ll prove that and your eyes will see.

Quickly beating heart, pounding and shouts your fame,

Resonating with emotions, it won’t stop until you affix my name.

Special attention to you I will never hold back,

Through thick and thin, until the last tick of the clock.

Unconditional love is what I desire to give you,

Vibrant affection, and concern that is true.

With all these letters, still words cannot express –

XOXO. Allow me to end with hugs and kisses.

You complete me. I can imagine my life without you, –

Zip, zero.

Heaven’s Chorus

Ti’s the night we’re called for a celebration!

Heaven's Chorus

This is a night of commemoration

When creation stood in adoration

And joined the heavenly delegation

To worship the One and only reason

He came not with a sound of trumpets

Welcomed not by people, almost unnoticed

No room to spare for the born Redeemer

Silently He was laid down on a manger

He was esteemed not by people He chose to die for

Yet willingly He offered His life for us all

This Christmas, let Him take the center place in your heart

Don’t leave Him in the sidelines, give Him the best part!

Ti’s the night we’re called for a celebration

Make room for Him in your joyous season

Let’s altogether join the whole creation

In welcoming the Savior’s birth – Jesus

The hope and reason for the season

Para sa mga SMP

Sama ng loob idadaan na lang sa pagkain
Umaasang sa paglipas ng Pasko, ang heartache lilipas din.

Para sa mga SMPNgayon, habang ang mundo’y nagsasaya,

Sa sulok, ika’y nag-iisa –

Nagmumuni ng bawat kahapon

Na sana’y naging masaya.

 

Sa bawat luhang pumapatak

Kasama’y pangarap na nasadlak.

Pag-asang sa Christmas makapiling

Malinaw na hindi na darating.

 

Automatic tuloy, kasama ka na sa listahan,

Di mo man ginusto, ika’y agad naispatan.

Samahan ng Malalamig ang Pasko ika’y ibinilang

Sa Noche Buena ng iba ang mahal mo’y makikipisan.

 

Ngayon tuloy no choice ka

Bitterness mo sa pamilya na lang ipapasa.

Sama ng loob idadaan na lang sa pagkain

Umaasang sa paglipas ng Pasko, ang heartache lilipas din.

 

Buti at ang Pasko’y isang araw lang

Sa kinabukasa’y sa SMP di ka na kabilang.

Ngunit sa darating na New Year ika’y makikipagsapalaran

Aagawin ang mahal mo bago dumating ang Valentines.

 

Merry Christmas everyone!

Now that we’ve Met Again

Heaven rejoiced when I came to see your face.

Now that we've met againIt’s been a long while since we last saw each other

Many things have changed between the two of us –

You had your own way, I had mine

But I wonder what’s on God’s mind why He brought us together.

Called from both sides of the world

Who would think we’d finally meet?

All along I’m wondering where have you been.

‘Til the opportunity came without me seeking it.

Heaven rejoiced when I came to see your face

It’s much like I won in a very prestigious race

And the much awaited prize I’m yearning to have

Is the fact that I came to see you now.

Everyone will envy me for again I finally meet

The person who has led me where everything began

And I will always treasure this moment with the one

The very person whom has taught me what is love.

On the Other Side

“Come here, my Son, and receive your blessings.”

On the Other SideOn the other side of the fence

There you’ll see —

Life in its complete beauty:

A view of peaceful simplicity.

On the other side of the fence

There you’ll find —

Lasting peace you’re searching

You can’t have while waiting.

Look beyond the usual things you look at:

Broaden your horizon, stretch out your perspective.

Take courage and face the risk

And see what kind life He wants you to live.

Only on the other side of the fence

Will your blessings flow freely.

It is prepared to those who longs to follow

No matter how hard it is and costly.

On the other side of the fence

God is patiently waiting.

His arms wide open while gently saying,

“Come here, my Son, and receive your blessings.”
