Communion

Him:
It’s time for rest my love
lay down your head on my chest
you are safe under my watch
My presence is a hiding place

Her:
You are the shield of my heart
evil lurks to put me in darkness
when I am with you there’s light
In your presence I’m protected

Him:
Hush, evil will die by my hand
for my love for you knows no end
I see troubles bringing you down
My presence is love come inside

Her:
In to you I see nothing but love
Here I am in your presence
I believe I finally understand
you have called me your beloved

Him:
Come closer and hold my hand
Here we are in the garden
In this communion, you are mine
I have called you my beloved

Little Gestures of Love

I was always afraid to hear the end times
I am not proud of what I have carried out
but knowing i have salvation from Christ
I am going to be alright because He’s love

The good news is He is patient and kind
a knock of comfort in my heart arrived
comfort said “love, you still have a chance”
I am going to be alright because He’s love

I have given a friend a hug right now
I called my mom to hear my voice say “hi”
I gave someone food without being asked
I visited prisoners to preach Christ

I packed extra food to share with someone
I hugged her instead of waving goodbye
I secretly prayed strength for his trials
I gave water to a weary homeless man

At the end of the day it will all clump up
Time is wealth but there’s no need to rush
realise now gestures don’t have to be grand
Little gestures of love is always significant

Seeking Heart

Her heart asks, she asks questions that seem silly to us
Who is us? us are the wise, the smart, the chosen ones.
I was told to not hinder the Children to Him and His heart
So here I am, being asked of who was, is, and is to come

Continue to seek Him my child, continue your way to the light
Who is the light? the light is seen through Heaven’s eyes
Do not run, do not hide, for unconditional is His love
So here I am, as her heart asks who was, is, and is to come

Her heart do not understand, but she continue to ask
Who is the word? The Word is life and of eternal one
Do not lose heart, for His burden is light, ask and find
So here I am, listens to asking of who was, is, and is to come

Her heart finally understands, she gain insight and life
What is life? Life is not of this world but of glorious one
When the day comes, everything you see will be of renewal
So here I am, patiently, we wait of who was, is, and is to come

~ M. Salonga

In the throne room with him

In wonder, for what do I have in me
what are the promises I treasure and keep
In wonder, how do one receive salvation?
what do I have to deserve the throne?

The promises i received i kept it within
embedded in my heart forever i will sing
I was lured to deception and temptation
but I have built my foundation from stone

When storms come, I stood still
When the consuming fire burns, Im in peace
When the enemies attack, I have salvation
Behold, know the word that I praise, I only rejoice

I am just a mere flesh with a willing spirit
my only desire is to be forever with Him
I think of His steadfast love with adoration
I think of the day He comes with a sword

It might seem dim but He’s renewing everything
Finally, I’ll be in the throne room with him
I’ll keep singing beautiful songs
Forever, I’ll lean on Him all day long

The promises i received i kept it within
embedded in my heart forever i will sing
I think of His steadfast love with adoration
I think of the day He comes with a sword

It might seem dim but He’s renewing everything
Finally, I’ll be in the throne room with him
I’ll keep singing beautiful songs
Forever, I’ll lean on Him all day long

I Am Going To Be Okay

I am going to be okay I say

My heart will beat over again

I can keep it together with all my best

Even when I think of running away

I’ve made mistakes like push people away and going my own way

But I know some still loves me anyway

Like my Father who is in heaven

Like my mother and my true friends

Although I am far away from them

I do cry at night to myself

I can’t help but think of an embrace

An embrace that can express

Expressions of gentleness, kindness

concern, and indulgence

It is not easy to be myself to fight myself

should I still keep my interests existent?

or should I terminate my own existence?

they say it’s a blessing to have a brain

but being a thinker? it just drains me to death

Oh my dearest self, I tell myself

You’re going to be okay

Your heart will beat all over again

because you are a fighter

there’s still a lot to learn and face

a lot to experience, a lot to expect

a lot to appreciate and acknowledge

Just always remember to refresh

Continue to participate and be aware

and discover that kismet can also be kept

as long as love still remains

Delete and Reset

I love looking at old photos, I love the memories of it all

It makes me remember the fun, It makes me remember the life

Here I am deleting some of it, I don’t want to dwell in it

I commanded my mind to reset, and to embrace change

It is letting go of the bad and keeping the best

Reseting gives me freedom and I hope it makes sense

Deleting and reseting isn’t a waste, its just a time to reflect

Time to leave it all, Live it on, and believe in more

I love looking at old photos, I love the memories of it all

It makes me remember the fun, It makes me remember the life

Here I am deleting some of it, I don’t want to dwell in it.
