Biography of Elmer Romulo Valdez
To see the dawn is the start of another new day...
the blossoming of a new life... the birth of another poem.
A poem that serves as the outlet of man's affections

translating my thoughts and flashes into words, then
weaving these words into lyrics of an emerging poem.
Truly, man's feelings are not that elusive, after all,
as they can be captured in a poem! Embraced
passionately in between the lines, a poem enriches
and ennobles the soul and let it be filled with
peace and joy!
Elmer Romulo Valdez Poems
A Time For Love
A time for love, A moment of truth, Between you and me.
Love At First Sight
My Lady when I first saw you, I was enchanted by your glow, Thoughts slipped away from me, As you charmed me along the way.
Surely thre's sunrise always, To lift the mask of the night, To open the secrets of the day, And to rouse the sleepy soul.
Eyes Of The Sand
Tread softly on the sand, As it guards the land, It has a million eye, Peering at the azure sky.
Darkness suddenly came, Without any warning; Like the fleeting wind, To disturb the calmness.
Memories Are Forever
Memories never die, They just flirt around, And peep behind curtains.
Your fate is in your hands, And that of our young love. Let not your attempts
In The Winds Of Adversity
Winds of adversity blow savagely, As injustice, death, and sickness, Come galloping in full swiftness, Into my life of trouble and agony.
Is there something left for me, To set my goal and aspire for? When fond hopes in my heart, Start to dry out and wither?
An Eternal Love
Open your bright eyes, Flower of my dreams! The solitary marble bench,
Burning sands, roaring winds on fire, Bearded masks, moving masses in white; Alien taps and nods, strange sounds, All unfamiliar, these unknown stares.
There's weariness, that clings tightly, There's a sadness, for having existed,
A trust in a strange heart, An affection within a wall; Thorns shield the innocence, To inspire a struggling mind.
The purity in your eyes, Sweetness in your smiles, Warmth in your whisper, Fill my dreams with hope.
Vividly, I see you beyond me,
Face burnt by sun and wind;
Offering a reluctant smile,
And jagged, reddened teeth.
You'll never grasp the reasons:
Why men of influence and power,
Smother your fundamental rights,
And rewrite your own history.
