    I know he loved me,
    But I love him more
    ����


    Sorry for any typos. Couldn't proofread.

    28th March I lost my friend

    Tomorrow too will be gone too soon
    The joy we postpone, dates we refuse to take
    They'll all be gone and we'll have empty hands
    Even times that seem stagnant
    Races just the same

    Soon a moment becomes a memory
    Like every love song soon plays a sad tone
    Because the meaning is lost with them
    The moment we let them slip out of our hands

    Once or twice we see them there
    We call and they immediately pick
    We think they'll always be there
    That's something we could take for granted,
    Ain't it?

    We forget to number the tick
    Of the hands of the clock
    Though they never stop.
    Know, the more they tick and move past
    The less time remains
    That we can spend with them

    Foolish me. See just yesterday he was here
    Wanting me to look at him
    Wanting me to roll my hands through his fur
    He looked at me with so much longing

    He was different then
    But to me he looked just the same
    The same mischievous and troublesome kind
    The same who would come crying on my door
    When he wanted my attention and affection
    Or when he just wanted to give me a headache

    Time to time, he'd be stubborn
    But never for once less jumpy and cheerful
    Or refuse to answer when I'd call
    I took it for granted,
    Shushed him away couple of times

    Yesterday he was different
    Because he obeyed my every command
    But when I'd call, he'd reluctantly limp my way
    He wasn't okay. He needed me to be there
    At least for all times he's been there for me

    He needed me to be there
    Not just as his friend but his caretaker
    He was crying out to me. I did notice
    But soon thought he was just being him
    So I shushed him away and locked the door
    He roamed around the house from the outside
    Crying. Calling. Roaring goodbyes.
    With each round his voice got weaker and lower

    I was awake, and heard it all
    And when he went quiet, in my heard I was like
    "oh. Finally he's shut up"
    Not knowing he'd taken his last breath
    And that's the last I'd hear from my friend

    This time he didn't just give me a headache
    Instead he broke my heart too.

    It's okay to walk away too.

    If you feel your heart is tired,
    Know you've now truly loved.
    Love them. Love them hard.

    If you feel your mouth is tired,
    Know you've spoken all there's to know.
    They will not hear anything after that.
    Pause, take a break for a little while,

    But when your eyes are tired,
    And however you try tears fail to come,
    Know you've cried enough for them,
    It's time to stop now. Time to let go.
    Time to turn around and walk away.

    A very beautiful song by Jimmy Swaggart. It reminded me of a lot of things. My heart's been once battered, cut right through, and it bled. My hopes too have once been torn apart. I was lost, I couldn't see a way out. I've once starved, fought through illnesses and condemnation. Just a while ago I was battling with anxiety and stress. But I'm better now. In each of my trials, something stronger kept me alive. I've seen miracles, and blessings I cannot explain. You know why? Someone stronger fought by me. These sure are trying times, and many may be facing double storms, some droughts, others battling poverty alongside the pandemic. But remember, earth has survived worse storms. It sure can fight this one. Pray, be hopeful, mother nature is working on a remedy. To those who are religious, remember the Lord is an anchor that will never fail.

    Honestly, everything I am today is simply a miracle. Though I've generalized the narration, everything I've said is true.

    The anchor holds

    I have journeyed through the long dark night
    Out on the open sea, by faith alone
    Sight unknown; and yet his eyes were watching me

    The anchor holds
    Though the ship is battered
    The anchor holds
    Though the sails are torn
    I have fallen over my knees as I face the raging seas
    The anchor holds in spite of the storm

    I've had visions, I've had dreams
    I've even held them in my hand
    But I never knew they would slip right through
    Like they were only grains of sand

    The anchor holds
    Though the ship is battered
    The anchor holds
    Though the sails are torn
    I have fallen over my knees as I face the raging seas
    The anchor holds in spite of the storm

    "Now that I've removed the speck of dust
    That was causing you tears,
    And the skies are clear of all clouds"
    Mother said, "look again child
    If you don't see the sun,
    If you don't see a ray of hope
    Then you can be sure; mankind's end is here,
    But as long as I am here still
    And for all I am capable of,
    You can be sure
    That the end is not yet near."

    Always check on your loved ones,
    Keep them safe.

    Let your heart hold still
    Despite this storm
    Plant your feet upon a rock
    So you are not easily shaken
    Don't let hope be washed along
    Yes, it's a trying time
    But a swift and fleeting one too
    For when you'd blink your eyes open
    It'd all have passed
    And we'd remain standing still
    Earth will clean it all
    There'd be no trace left of it
    Just triumphic memories of having once
    Pulled through such a nightmare

    There are stories that ain't true,
    Yet, spread like wild fire to burn souls.
    I will not be a victim to that.
    If I've not lived with much, I'd not leave much either,
    And I wouldn't want you to tell it any other way.

    If I were to die in this moment
    Tell my family I loved them too much.
    Mention no other thing
    That's not between I and them
    Or any that may not define who I am.
    Mention not words I hoped to say
    Nor things I planned to do for them.
    Do not make them sad or cry,
    But do not sugarcoat my obituary
    And make them believe what I wasn't either.
    Tell them plainly that I loved them so.
    That's all that's true, and that's all you should tell.
    If any might ask of truths only I know,
    Tell them so;
    With all my good intentions
    And with all my loving heart,
    With all my strength and persistent acts,
    And my endless struggles to do and live right,
    I too was doomed to run out of time.
    So for anything I never did, words I never said,
    Maybe it was destined that I'd die having not have.

    For the time being, my heart belongs to me.
    If you want it, you'd have to surrender yours too.

    Now I look in the mirror and cry.
    There's no reason to speak, no reason to sing.
    Since you've been gone
    My heart, mind and body are failing to sync.
    I've lost you, I've lost me too.
    Simply, I've lost it all.

    Maybe loneliness and being alone
    Is all there's to me;
    Even my poetries; my sweet sweet melodies,
    Have turned silent too.
    I write and they fall in places no one sees,
    I sing and there are no ears around to hear,
    And these walls echo back a sorrowful tone.
    I have forgotten how to get in touch with you.
    Forgetting and being forgotten
    Seems to be the only thing for me.
    Oh, how did I let things get this far,
    To let isolation slip into my place of solace?
    It used to be - even when my heart was in pieces,
    My mind cluttered and my face in tears,
    There was always someone to hear me sing.
    Did I change, did I forget the notes?
    How do I sing so you can hear me again,
    What can I write so you'd want to read?
    I've lost all, I don't want to lose you too.
    I can feel you're there, so for now it's alright.
    And it's just a matter of time
    Before you'd want to hear from me again.
    I'll find my voice, I'll find the words
    To sing, and look in the mirror and smile.
    I know you're there, it's just a matter of time
    Till you find me.

    I love too early,
    I let go too late - if I ever do,

    Each one I meet takes a part
    And never gives it back,

    However I try
    My heart can never be whole

    Because I love too early
    And I let go too late,

    And whomever I meet
    Lives but short
    Then packs all of theirs and leave,

    And they take a part of me
    They refuse to give back.
    Oh! It always hurts.

    I wanted to grow -
    Hoping I can be stronger and wiser,
    Not knowing my problems would grow along,
    And my ability to solve them all would blur.

    I will love you
    Until you can love yourself,
    Maybe you will hate me,

    But if you won't,
    I will love even more,
    Till you can love me too.

    Maybe you will hurt me,
    Or maybe you won't,
    Oh! But who knows what can happen
    When one loves, and another is loved?
