#WQWWC #25: Healing

Some rocks unfolding in the mist
Sending wisdom and hope
Foremothers and fathers are missed
Seeing lines in the slope
Some lessons learned along the coast
Seeing spirits or perhaps ghost
Some lessons learned
Some lessons learned
As we commune with nature host

Some rocks unfolding in the mist
Strange rock formations
Reminds me of being first kissed
You gave me carnation
Roots of trust and healing unfold
Strings of realm to behold
Roots of trust
Roots of trust
Adorned with virtues manifold

Some rocks unfolding in the mist
Green horizon of trees
So peaceful glad they all exist
Leaves swaying in the breeze
Birds and bees fly from tree to tree
Full of glee as they are all free
Birds and bees fly
Birds and bees fly
Count our blessing we all agree*

The Trijan Refrain

in a land of sadness, broken dreams are made
pressure is mounting and tempers getting frayed
can’t go on, of empty sheets and promises
when everything is aimless and such bleakness
confusion and betrayal make me lonely
trust was broken and I was hurt so deeply
when I’ve given all I’ve got, my heart and soul
in return, you have my happiness stole
the scars were there and the stench of betrayal
couldn’t think of reason why you embezzle
in a land of sadness, broken dreams are made
pressure is mounting and tempers getting frayed

can’t go on, of empty sheets and promises
when everything is aimless and such bleakness
those were some vapid and empty sentiments
my scarlet heart bleeds, we used to be us once
now your name no longer part of my speech
with suckers at both ends, you are such a leech
was a nightmare, what you did was such a gyp
I wish the pain goes in just one fingertip
time is my closest friend, it helps in healing
for now, let me mourn and everything aching
in a land of sadness, broken dreams are made
pressure is mounting and tempers getting frayed

confusion and betrayal make me lonely
trust was broken and I was hurt so deeply
I make the whirling world stand still for now
when I’m ready, I have to get up somehow
acceptance could be beseeched and I move on
learn the lesson, be happy that you are gone
I play the game of life and have fun again
we’re not meant to be, to God I say amen
the sky is blue, I know there is always hope
and I will be given enough strength to cope
in a land of sadness, broken dreams are made
pressure is mounting and tempers getting frayed**

** The Licentia Rhyme Form

I wish I could escape from this
That I cannot get you out of my mind
If only the circumstances are different
Heard this song, you I know I miss

Miss your sound, I wish to push out
Out of my mind, out of my being, too
Thank you for the memories, I know you exist
We’re not meant to be, that’s about

About the party we have been
I was thirsty and you gave me a drink
We drove to places where voted some of the best
Not late, parallel lives begin

Begin the healing, forgiving
When trust was broken, that was about it
Forgiven but not forgotten
Cannot get it out, the sting

Sting in the tail, so goodbye
Learn the lesson and time to move on, too
No regrets, we always say, best to part our ways
We’re not meant to be, you and I***

*** RemyLa Rhyme Form

Shake the ache I feel
Lengthen the strength of my soul
Pain still stains spirit
Not fault to put salt on wound
Not too much to touch your heart

Now I have my strength
Things are springing brightly
Not blame anyone
Things happened for a reason
Acceptance is a great balm

fallin’
now I am free
free from you and your lies
free from your promises that broke
free from the pain and disappointment, too
it was heaven when we started
things have changed for the worse
now I am free
fallin’

Time is wonderful. It helps us ease our pain, some bad memories and our heartache. They are still there, but as the days pass by, the sensation dulls. It’s nature’s way of dealing with them and let us continue with our day to day activities, without mourning. When my father passed away, it was like the world has ended. It made me feel vulnerable and has come face to face with my own mortality. That we all go in the end, no matter what age, how healthy or active we are, whatever our lifestyle. It also made me change my attitude, my belief, my priorities and my way of life. I live each day like it’s the last day on earth. I love with passion, give generously to people who needs them, as well as my time to people that matters, sort my priorities and enjoy life and what it offers.

Life carries on
Live each day like a last day
Love with passion

I have known shadowy delight
A crystal sea, tranquillity
The moon orbits around with glee

A place for all of us to share
Seven continents make it up
Oceans and seas are the line-up

With peaceful healing it’s my home
And the rest of men and beasts, too
Amazing world and the sky’s blue

Its forests, deserts and mountains
Savannah, tundra, swamps and hills
Marsh and others all parts of frills

And so to honour this great earth
We have to treat it kindly so
Respect it so we can all grow

(c) ladyleemanila

Happiness is being with Him
Him Indoors for better or forget it
Through thick and thin with all the challenges we get
And we love going for a swim

Swim whatever the weather is
In the summer we love cycling to parks
Walking up a hill or through the forest that’s us
Happy in our home oh such bliss

Bliss is with the son and his wife
Skyping us on Sundays with their tales
Going to the Philippines to visit my Mum
Dancing with friends and our nightlife

Nightlife as well as having fun
Having a holiday every year
This year is Japan, UK and Turkey
Coming back home once all is done

Done with hate and atrociousness
Do my share in spreading love and hope
Glad when I can make at least one person smile
It’s great to share such happiness****

  1. Wow, you did an enormous amount of work on this post, Lady Lee. I don’t even know where to start. Maybe start at the end with the song. I’ve never heard Arlissa before, but what a voice her song speaks to the topic so appropriately. “I thought I wanted… But I needed healing.” My favorite poem was your RemyLa Rhyme Form, “Healing Doesn’t Mean the Damage Never Existed…” That one spoke to my romantic heart. I think most people have been there. It takes so much time to push “Him” out of your mind, but the other half doesn’t want to push “Him” out because the memories were so pleasant.
    “Miss your sound, I wish to push out
    Out of my mind, out of my being, too
    Thank you for the memories, I know you exist
    We’re not meant to be, that’s about.”

    Lovely works on healing. Thanks for joining in #WQWWC Lady Lee. It’s always fun to see what you’ve come up with.
