Spare The Smile

(Imagine if God tells this to you)

When beauty was yet kept from the eyes of any man
And the masterpiece was yet a Breath of Life away,
You were here in My heart when summertime first began
After the spring gave its first bloom in the light of day.

For you I gave a lasting warmth in a world of ice
Where winter threatened throughout eternity to yield.
I was the One who made it clear for your blinded eyes
To see that I prepared for My love the flow’ry field.

So would you please spare the smile and reserve it for me?
The dawn breaks as light springs forth to appear before love,
But if without your heart it seems things are vanity,
For in my heart, you’re the bride I will bring up above.

Spare the smile and the heart; let them be completely Mine.
I will make you own the start you dreamed of possessing.
Everything shall bow after our pledges combine
For the dominion is ours for our own cherishing.

Share with Me your tears and gladness as you spare the smile.
Drink with Me the wine, which forever shall not taste vile.
Obed dela Cruz



Still We Shall Stand

Towers and mega-structures may instantly fall
And priced commercial lands be left barren and dull.
But by having faith in God and a moving hand
We’ll rise and rebuild our world and still we shall stand.

Sacks of gold may be stolen from our trusted banks
And the earth’s most expensive diamonds become junks,
But still we shall enrich ourselves of the true riches.
Still we shall stand and have peace even in crisis.

Though we may stand in front a poisonous snake
And in great fear of what shall happen next we shake,
O with our strength let us do everything to live!
Still we shall stand and God’s protection we’ll receive.

No matter what we have today and tomorrow
Still we shall stand and into what’s good we shall go.

Learning what life is shall never end
And what’s learning shall I comprehend.
I’m a student who loves to study.
In hearing correction, I’m ready.

My ears are open to wise instruction.
My path is open to good direction.
My heart must be bound to the guiding truth.
My manners must be like that Great King.

Take Them Not Against Me, For I Was A Child

Take them not against me, for I was a child;
Those wrongs I made when I started to explore
A dark, gloomy world that had my heart beguiled
When I touched the knob of a forbidden door.

For I was enticed by the moving shadow
Of the beast who I assumed to be my friend.
And every night I struggled for tomorrow,
Thinking it was necessary for my end.

I wore a covering on my face to hide
The creature whose eyes wished to rid of its soul.
For the devil's greed birthed by deceptive pride
Was the fraud behind my spirit's empty hole.

But I am not one of the devil's children.
My soul, my youth are not among his victims.
And my name would not belong with the fallen
If I choose not to give in my foolish whims.

Therefore, I unmask my face to show the truth
And let my eyes, the soul's mirror, confirm this
That I have already grown, though still a youth
I can weigh reason and know what to dismiss.

So may all hell now fear this revelation
That it cannot anymore profit from me.
For the child who they thought had their devotion
Already repented, now their enemy!
Obed dela Cruz
