If Never does not exist

It might be now.

It might Never be.

But Never is just a word.

It may not be real.

Never is for the human view.

Never may actually be untrue.

If Never does not exist

Would I then be closer to you?

A letter to my child

2013-09-16_07_32_46
Liriko, our precious little man.

We know that in life the roads aren’t made of gold,
That people cry and people die, and memories grow old.
If in a mess you get caught up and feel you’re in a trance,
Stop and pray then read this letter once you get the chance:

My dearest child, remember that you are loved
By your parents on earth and your Father above
Your life is precious, your roots are divine.
When tested, be patient, perfection takes time.

Sometimes the world would mock what’s right
And one must choose between fight or flight.
In such a time child, firmly hold your ground.
Fear will wither where faith abounds.

Sometimes your plate might seem awfully full
And you’ll even wonder why you have to go to school.
In such a time child, think of what really matters
A few things are treasures in the grandest ever after.

Sometimes the righteous, they suffer even more
And you’ll see good people dragged further to the floor.
When it seems like for evil the stars are all aligned
Remember that for this, justice He designed.

Sometimes you’ll get hurt and sorrow you’ll find.
You might even lose hope and faith in mankind.
But think of how once He atoned for your sins,
And learn what great joy forgiveness can bring.

Sometimes in love, you think He’s unfair
That He answers others yet ignores your prayers.
When in waiting it seems your life’s mostly spent
Just think that it would all make sense in the end.

My dearest child, remember that you are loved
By your parents on earth and your Father above
Your life is precious, your roots are divine.
When tested, be patient, perfection takes time.

So this is how it is…

So this is how it is

To love and and be loved ten times more in return
To never go to bed mad simply because you can’t
To wake up smiling and feeling protected and safe
To always have someone to cry on and laugh with
To hug and be hugged whether you need or not
To be yourself and not be judged but be accepted
To listen to one’s heart and equally to be heard
To not be afraid of the dark, nor of the storm
To be afraid of losing, much more of hurting
To feel happy because of someone else’s joy
To not care about swallowing useless pride
To hope for better things not just for yourself
To be grateful for your parents even more
To strive to prepare to be a good parent now
To reminisce and be amazed at how it all worked out
To actually see the fruits of faith and good works
To understand the word “family” in greater depth
To learn the true meaning of forgiveness
To eat or not eat anything and be contented
To finish each other’s sentences
To think each other’s thoughts
To see life the way it should be seen
To be reminded of things that matter most
To look forward to eternal life and eternal family

To desire for others to know the same kind of love
that I have
that you give
that we share

So this is how it is.
