VIRGINIA PECHO GELY
Biography of VIRGINIA PECHO GELY
I was born in a small village in the city of Lucena, Philippines. I started to write poems when I was 13. In those days ideas and inspirations were nearer. I wrote about 20 poems before my 19th birthday. Unhappily, my book of compilation of poems was destroyed during one of our heavy typhoons in 1980. I was able to save 'in my memory' only the short poems. The beginning of my early teens were saved by composing and writing poems. Poetry has always been my loyal companionship till now.
VIRGINIA PECHO GELY Poems
Life is full of mystery of unexpected encounter meeting faces and unforgettable places, We just couldn't understand.
Goodbye cold WINTER... Nortured by my waiting...forsaken but not forgotten, Covered-up the withered dried leaves of AUTUMN, Renounced the prevailing changes of seasons...without reasons.
The curtains are now down. This human show must go on… Life must be played till the last breath No matter how complicated or difficult the comedy…
I’ve learned a lot by knowing you And knowing you better leads me to realize That I must live my life all over again…
I dedicate a hymn of gratitude to your courage... For although weak and banded; ...wounded and baffled for years... ...Your soul stayed unbeatable.
Forgive me for not counting the fleeting moments When I am near you. Time seems considerately blameful to each glances I take… From soul to soul…as face to face.
Life is a mystery… In each crossroads, I’ve met people, forgotten who and how they were to me. Most often, I don’t even remember how I was with them. And I didn’t mind.
Of Poetry And Prose
Love and passion… …identified feelings, …mixed emotions of rhyming words worthy written… …in gleaming lines…
Constantly In Thoughts
Wherever I gaze, I can see your countenance almost real to me. When I close my eyes, the more vivid your face becomes in my imagination. I always want to close my eyes when you are not with me, Beloved.
In everything you say and do… Makes my heart to want you, Like my wanting of summer to be mine,
My Delights In Loving You
I met you unexpectedly without anticipation. Suddenly after, I realized that life is worth living again, That despair and heartaches and those long troubled years can be changed to joy and laughter
You were my blissful ecstasy, Your presence decomposed strange madness… …However divinely subtle. My miserable me subsisted in this conjured nostalgia.
Softly and silently waves cover the signs of time… I linger again and again, from moment to moment; I remember our first sight…
Goodbye cold WINTER...
Nortured by my waiting...forsaken but not forgotten,
Covered-up the withered dried leaves of AUTUMN,
Renounced the prevailing changes of seasons...without reasons.
Watch your steps leaving traces...
Silently escaping my ambivalence,
Looking behind what life has been?
Or just reminiscing regrets of my untold dreams?
