My Greatest Gratitude for Love

hen I was just a little boy, I always yearned to have a very happy life. Well, who doesn’t? But for me, it is an extremely diverse obsession. I wished to have more gadgets, more toys, everything that a little boy could always ask to have. However, the more wish I’ve made, the fewer I’ve gotten. Yes, it’s true. That is because we didn’t have that so-called “a decent life” in this world. I just have a very simple family and I am not ashamed to say that we just used to settle for less.

I could still remember the day when I asked my mother to buy me a radio cassette and she simply elucidated  that her money was just enough to buy foods for the whole family. I also once asked my father to buy me a toy car remote control and just bought me a single hot wheels toy car instead.  I just whimpered at that moment provided the reason I didn’t know exactly how expensive they were at that time and I had nothing else to do but to accept what is being given.

Nevertheless, as I grew older and became mature, I grasped a thought that nothing in this world is more significant than being a very happy person with those people you love and love you back unconditionally. I have a few friends who really care; I have my family who’s been very supportive of me after 23 years; I have my baby who truly loves me; and I have God up above Who cares, supports and loves me completely. Nowadays, if my heart desires for something, I’ll simply write it in a piece of paper, will work hard for it as much as possible and will purely pray until I have it. I understand that I’ll never get everything I need in this world, not unless I work hard for it and I’m proud to say that I do, I have everything I had ever needed.

Last night, as I welcome the month of September (month of my birthday), I sat down on my bed, grabbed my diary and engraved this little poem for those important personalities of my life. From the very base of my heart, I offer my gratitude to my family and my baby, to my friends and readers for their unconditional love they have been bestowed after all these time, and especially to my Father in heaven Who have given me this precious life and loving family. This poem is for all you and I’m hoping you’ll like it as much as I do.

My Greatest Gratitude For Love

~

Living my life is always my weakness

But your presence will forever be my strength

Your love is as precious and brighter as the sun

Which I can’t see the way without your light

 ~

Yes, you couldn’t give all the things I want

But you always have everything I need

For being you and being with you would be enough

For me to give you my everything

 ~

I can always perceive myself trailing

I even once attempted to stop and refused to go on

But you seize my hands, you believe in me

And you love me for ‘being me’

 ~

Troubles are my best friends

Tears are my companions

But you lift me up with your strong arms

You’ll never let them pull me down

~

You’re my savior, my shelter

My shield that’s ready to protect me

Destiny could keep us away from each other

But we’ll never ever let that happen

 ~

I’m not afraid of facing this world

But I’m afraid of being not inside your world

The wind is the witness of our love

Through it, we feel our hearts, beating as one

 ~

You give me your loving hands to wipe my tears

You give me your side to back me up

We shared a lot of happy and sad moments together

Now I swore to myself that I’ll be yours forever

    1. I’m glad that I have been a good example. Giving a very special time to thank those people who love and support you is a very easy task. If it really comes from your heart, writing such poems like this one are magical. I am so humbled and appreciated, Amy. Thank you!
