Sweet Petals of Life

By: Ernesto Pangilinan Santiago

Sweet Petals of Life

There are times---
I fall, unwittingly
and 'cos of this, I want you to be near

...for when my body trembles, give me the courage
...for when my mind is confused, enlighten me
...for when my memory is lost, remind me of me

If ever I fall---
deeper into the abyss of darkness
lift me, with laughter's of the day

And, if ever I weep again---
wash my sorrow, with hues of morn flowers
and dry my tears, with its sweet petals

Yes, I don't want to live alone---
so this to you I ask, stay beside me
that I may not fall into the pangs of solitude
