A Paradise in my Heart

by Marc Ortiz   May 27, 2007

I'm sitting here in a tranquil park
A clear blue sky with white puffy clouds
And there's the sun smiling down at me
The warm breeze whispers harmonic songs.

The trees are joyfully dancing in this sunny day
Leaves like a treasure that falls to the soft sands
I can smell nature's blessing from the distance
It's like a perfect melody playing in my mind.

I want to reside forever in this heavenly place
Nothing can stop me to live here for eternity..
Suddenly a frosty wind passes through me
I realized it was just a blissful dream..

I was just here all the time on this arctic place
Darkness has overwhelmed this forsaken land
I cannot see the daystar above the misty sky
The rain is like a bomb that falls from the overcast

Now I know there's no peaceful place in my frigid life
Only pain and sorrow exists in my time
No one was there to keep me warm from my cold life..
And now I stand alone on this bleak dead land.

That dream.. Is just another paradise in my heart

*This poem is about my homeland.. and where I live now.*

    Do you miss the Philippines, kababayan? :-) A beautiful, heart-gripping poem! Why, I for one would like to go the UK. I love England. I guess, you know, it's more fun here in RP.
