Whisper of Life

written by Cesar Gealogo


with 26 comments

Every time I walk

In this camp of deafening silence

I always feel the very emptiness

Of my wounded heart


I want to embrace and kiss with my beloved

I want to sing and dance with my beloved

I want to play and laugh with my beloved

But I can’t for I am far from my beloved


She is in the city

I am in the hinterland

She is in the city of temptation

I am in the hinterland of belonging


I can’t endure this life of mine

I can’t resist the belonging of my heart

I can’t afford not to feel her love

For I love her deeply

Note: This poem was written way back in the year 2000 in the camp of 141st Company of Regional Mobile Group located at Taganito, Claver, Surigao del Norte.
