When You Came

Perhaps you found me
at a time when I was lost
and just beginning to understand
myself again

Perhaps you were
the first light
that I have seen
after being in the dark
for so long

Perhaps you were
just a stranger
with the enough amount of kindness
and a little bit of charm

Regardless of how I have foreseen
you leaving
and how I have long reminded myself
not to fall again
You had me at an impact
and broke my heart
just the same.

And now I’m back to how I was before you came. // hrh

Just Your “Sometimes,” Never Your “Always”

Sometimes you’d surprise me out of nowhere,
ready to spend the day with me
Sometimes your smiles would be meant for me,
and you’d look at me like I was your world
Sometimes, you’d call in the middle of the night
to tell me you miss me
Sometimes you’d look into my eyes
and tell me you love me

While I always wait for you to come,
and you’re the only one my eyes see,
How I always miss you when you’re not with me
and how I always say I love you daily

Because that’s the thing-
I am just your “Sometimes”, never your “Always,”

and I love you too much to be contented with pieces of you
while I give all of me.

– But just this once, I don’t need a “Someday,” I need a “Today.” // hrh
