Ruby Tonacao Campos Poems
Life is a gift, It's not mine to waste. Life is precious, it's not mine to abuse.
Life's Journey Life's journey isn't easy or funny, Rather, it's long and really dreary,
You Are My Treasure
You are my guiding star that lights my way in a dark night. You are my perfect rudder when my hopes seem out of sight.
A Teacher's Desire
Master Teacher, Source and Giver of wisdom, You have called me to a work so special, A stint that others often label as celestial, With some calling it one "noble and superior".
She stands a moment Merely gazing at a blank wall With grave contempt He stares Not minding her presence
Dark paths have been brightened Rough times they never stop me Boredom, Oh it cheers me up Weary days are a welcome to me
They give me space, Clear my troubled mind, Heal my soul, Touch my heart,
Beauty lures, beauty pulls. Beauty attracts, beauty distracts.
Beauty Is in the Beholder's Eye
"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" they say, and I agree. Anyone can make anything beautiful or ugly by his seeing, He can turn a red rose into green, or a yellow daffodil into brown, A small hill, into a steep mountain or a huge stunt into a trail.
Love's Many Faces
Love is like a red red rose, it catches your attention. Love is like a strong wind, it blows your mind away.
A hope of a new day, A promise for a new beginning, A fresh look at life, A reward for the weary,
Slowly, silently, carefully, she crawls beneath, She reaches out her trembling right hand, Tightly, her left hand held to her belly, Then she inches forward for the only crumb,
Oh moon what a delight to see, You drive away my madness with your stunning beauty. You soothe one's tired spirit

Life is a gift,
It's not mine to waste.
Life is precious,
it's not mine to abuse.
Life is short,
It's not mine to squander.
Life is relationship,
It's not for me to hate,
rather, share, give and love.
