"Unrequited Love"

Unrequited Love by Simplymarrimye

There are people who are lonely
living in an oblivious world
where reality is distant and life is obscure

They choose to wear a smile
but sadness reign inside
begging for something that is never mutual.

Loving a person with nothing in return
is an obvious act of despair
but for them... it's every breath they take.

Starting Over Again

Starting Over Again by Simplymarrimye

When we fall, we feel pain.
When we fail, we feel hopeless
Love may end in many reasons...
and starting over may take a while.

If we tried hard but still we lose
If we cried out all but still we suffer
Love may deserve a second chance 
if fate allows, it will happen.

Forget the past that causes pain
Savor the present that makes memories
Look beyond tomorrow...
Old love may never rekindle but a new one may begin to flame.

Love in Action

Simplymarrimye - Love in action

It's not enough to say you love a person
Words will not prove it until actions are done.

It's not enough to thank a person
Gratitude comes from an unpretentious soul.

It's not enough to give praises
Doing right is different from doing good.

It's not enough to have pure love
without a pair of hearts that beat as one.

Anger and Kindness

Simplymarrimye - Anger and Kindness

All of us get offended, annoyed and dismayed
We cannot avoid being resentful
but we can do something to feel otherwise.

Life may take us to a place
where righteousness becomes unfitting
and goodness becomes insignificant.

Let kindness prevail in our hearts
because tomorrow may bring us either sorrow
or joy beyond compare.

Love and Pride

When it comes to LOVE, 
we are victims of our own judgments and decisions. 
We only hear our own sentiments 
and never listen to what other's may say. 
Listening to understand 
is different from listening to respond. 

If only we have the heart 
to let pain be the strength to accept 
and let love weaken our pride... 
no wall can ever go between two people 
who desire to live life together... forever.

Equality of Differences

What if you are poor
and you don't have the wealth to brag about
but you have a big heart to offer love unconditionally...

What if you are rich
and you don't have the power to stop getting old
and buy your immortal life...

What if you are a man
and you don't have the ability to bear a child
but you have the valor to protect and provide...

What if you are a woman
and you can never be a king
but a reigning queen behind a man's success...

What if you are still young
and you cannot be wise enough
but can be an aggressive learner and creative juvenile...

What if you are old
and your mind deteriorates as you reach the end of the road
but your existence may leave an immeasurable impact to humanity.

We differ in some aspects
but equal in certain respects
to make this world keep going and life worth living..

My Journey Begins

My Daddy Dan and Mommy Abby
My Daddy Dan and Mommy Abby

who was then 17 and
Abby, who was a year older
met for the first time
during a town fiesta on August of 1967.

They became lovers
September of the same year
but because of
a simple kiss on the cheek
that caught the eye of a malicious onlooker,
they were forced to elope a month later
and soon got married.

After nine months ...
came their firstborn child named,


29th of June, 1968...
the beginning of a journey
worth traveling.

Yours truly, at one year old

Kiko and Papa Ariel

Iba't-ibang klase ang ama sa mundo...

Merong tahimik, walang imik
subalit kapag nagbitiw na ng salita
tumatagos sa puso, 
tumatanim sa isip, ramdam ang bawat titik.

"Hubad na Katotohanan"

Hubad na katotohanan

Sa paghilig ng ulo sa unan,
Isa-isang nagsilaglagan ang mga alaala.
Tila mga barahang binabalasa.
Mabilis ang pagpapalit, patuloy ang pagpapakita.
Ang nakaraan ibinulsa sa isang bahagi ng isipan.
Isinilid din sa hiwa ng pusong nasugatan.


Alon, buhangin at mga bato
Mga punong nagsasayaw sa pag-ihip ng hangin
lagaslas ng tubig na yumayapos sa pampang
iba't-ibang mga tao... may sari-saring kwento.

"In any relationship, when pride steps in, 
don't close the door of your heart 
to let understanding overpower the ego."

"Commitment is a lifelong gift of a loving heart."

"If you think you've already given your all ... think again.
The relationship won't work if you have nothing
left for yourself."

"Mga Eksena ng Pag-ibig"

Marami na akong nasaksihang
mga eksena  ng pagmamahalan
May ubod nang lagkit sa sobrang "sweet"
konting kibot lang, nakahawak at nakadikit.

 Meron din iba dyan, parang yelo sa lamig
di man lang umaakbay, lambing nya'y nananamlay
Ngunit, subalit, datapwat, ganun lang pala siya
kailangan ng "privacy" para maging "showy".

We are but Human

We are but
and reality speaks out either truth or lie
We are bound
to blemish our life with flaws
deliberately or unintentionally

We are but
Acceptance is the only way to lighten up our heart
People may misjudge us.
The dirt in their face looks
invisible with their own eyes.
