Why Do I Love You?

Why do I love you?
When I’m here and you’re away?
For our love fears no boundaries
Every single day.

Why anticipation?
When you’re just some feet away?
For seeing you is magical
I lose my words to say.

Why this painful heartache
When petty quarrels rise?
For when you’re sad, you sweep away
The sparkling in my eyes.

But, why do I still love you?
Why, what’s the question for?!
For when you came into my life
It’s never much like before.

The Guy of Sixteen

Its been three years since I wrote this poem. Actually, I decided to post it here in my WordPress site, because I started compiling my old poems from my Multiply Site, which I plan to deactivate next year.

Here goes:

I learned a lot, from the guy of sixteen
from the moment he entered my life’s silverscreen
His stories, nice, both from here and afar
While mine were daydreams and wishing upon a star

He taught me to calm, this playful heart of mine
With his corny jokes ev’rything turned out fine
Whenever I’m down, he would share his smile
And i find my afternoons seemingly worthwhile

But then there were times, I felt he was ‘cold’
Simply telling me– emotions must not hold
Because he’s not mine, yes, not mine alone
And I say this, my friends, in a contented tone.

Time would come, that he must too, go away
Like the summer sun, it must shine another day
I do not know when, I do not know how
But i am very sure to say
That this guy of sixteen became a close one to me.. today.
