Golden Jubilee
By: Noel N. Villarosa
August 26, 2015

Did I go far at 50?
Time flies, now my golden age
So much to ponder on life’s stage
In surging events, I need to stay nifty

Still I cry and laugh
It’s normal for a man’s fight
Heaven still guards my flight
Not rich but blessing pours enough

Younger years just past to ripe
Serious composure enlivened by jolly snatch
Which my deep thought would only catch
Light-hearted moments, I will tribe

Proudly turning half a century
Denials would still reveal at wisdom
A drift to the generational gap with younger ones
I am thankful for every wisp of glory

Though I have a limited time to reach my goals
Looking forward to the second half century
I wonder of owning certain age as sweet reverie
Birthday is not a thing to argue, it is inevitable

Today I give myself the gift of time
A chance to thank also dear people
Who make me happy and gleeful
Should the test of time ever climb

God Wrote a Poem
By: Noel N. Villarosa

Events that took part in our life
We don’t think we know it all
God wrote a poem for our insights
Immersed in experience, to swim the crawl

God wrote a poem for me and you
Look around, it’s written on His bounty
In flower’s scent, we are raised to view
Sceneries that inspire, humbly grow to infinity

Like I do, to read what it means
My eyes understand, the love to repair
His message sent into my dreams
Poetic dialogue to open up despair

Born to the rhythm of two hearts
One from your mother and yours
Reaching your way into light’s art
That first cry resounds that endures

It’s the first poem ever written
God’s grace to loving parents
Cries of a baby as mother cries in response
Sounds convey feelings into words to understand

God wrote a poem through sights and sounds
Unknown, until we succumbed to silence and darkness
Realizing message it tells and clear shapes that astound
We are His written poem out of nothingness

Find the Eyes
By: Noel N. Villarosa
August 6, 2015

Winning games, such a fun
Lingering doubts like a taste in the mouth
Tucked in a blanket, fears still run
A strong dreamer sent to scout

Sit quietly and listen, watch to know
Mornings are pleasant, evenings for a call
Face disturbed for bogeyman to show
Pranks they thought, off to bed and fall

Wink and smile to trick all of those times
She’ll be right beside and kissed goodnight
Gathered some courage to hold a new frame
In a child’s eyes, it’s a secret to hold on tight

Running hours like imaginations ran wild
Slip back to time where castles are made
Out of sheet draped across two chairs and tied
This brief moment draws a smile which never fades

In loneliness when you are past your prime
Take some time and absorb the pleasures
A time out and break into childhood time
Try to find the eyes back to your youthful leisure
