Lilibeth Sacmar Apat

(Oct.2 / Tondo, Manila, Philippines)

Rain


In my heart echoes the pain,
Hurt never heals in the rain,
Rain never quenches thirst, soul,
No balm for my numbed senses.

LIfe has a lot to offer,
Like the rain that pours wonders,
Life, like rain, fascinates me,
The downpour I have waited.

But rain is not enough now,
To wash the tears that flowed down,
Pain so deep that brought my tears,
Need peace I have not in sleep.

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
