There is a risk involved in everything
Everytime you share a smile
Everytime you shed your tear
You are opening yourself up to hurt you
Some people trend slowly through life,

Avoiding the closeness risk brings,
Sidestepping the things they cannot understand
Turning away from those who care too much
Those who care stay too long, those who hold to tightly
There is never an easy way to love

You cannot approach it cautiously
It will not wait for you to arm yourself
It does not care if you turn away
It is everywhere, it is everything
Love is the greatest of all risk

Even in the best of times, love hurts
It hurts to need, it hurts to belong
It hurts to be the other part of someone else,
Without either of your consent
But, from the moment it overtakes you

It hurts worse to be all alone
The risk of love never depletes
It grows stronger and more dangerous with time
But, it is in the total surrender of all defenses
That’s we, no matter weak or strong

No matter willing or captive
No matter what, we truly experience love
Despite the many things love is not,
Outweighing it all are the things that love is,
Love is surrender without a loss

It is a gift without a cost
It consumes your every thoughts and desires
Every breath you take
It is the fire that fuels you
To do more than pass through life

It urges you, to live
No matter the outcome, having felt love
You will never be the same
It scar your heart and soul
And leave you only memories forever

Or, it may cause every day of your life
To feel like there is no need for tomorrow
But, love is worth it, it is worth the risk...
For all of life, truly the only risk worth taking.

I'm grateful for the many days when clarity is strong
As well as those it seems that life has somehow led me wrong
For it's those times that awaken me & nudge me towards light
Till once again my hopes and dreams are clearly held in sight
I'm grateful for the love within the circles that I dwell

My family, friends and even those who've made my life seem like hell
For each of those have taught me more regarding how to love
Provide me feelings to express these things that I have
I am grateful for the right to dream, to hope, to wish
And to know that all my thoughts are merely seeds which based on love must grow

That if I’ll think them consciously and nurture them with care
These vision held, my heart desires, will soon be waiting there
I'm grateful for the fact I’ve learned that we consciously create
That they to mold and shape a life desired I must keep thinking straight
That when the fear that shows it's head which is based on false belief

I have free will to change the thoughts to those that brings relief
I'm grateful too for false belief which led me on my quest
For mentors met along the way, I truly feel blessed who clearly
Showed me of the need to understand my worth and higher truth
Which promises a life divine on earth?

I'm grateful for the fear I feel sometimes
Because I know that when its felt purging power exists
To help me grow the awareness of its presence shows there's something
More to learn that’s my focus must stay fixed on love to attract those things yearn
I'm grateful for the joy I feel, I’m grateful for the fear

Of understanding what is it that draws me near to the life
I know is waiting on the other side
And when it comes I must hold fast and use it as a guide
My gratitude goes deeper still, for breath, for sight

For the life for teachers who have shown me that my thoughts create my strife
I'm grateful for the plan which says whatever you receive
Is drawn to you through feelings felt created by belief
I'm grateful for all nature, the birds, the grass, and the trees
The lakes which hold abundant life, a summer evening breeze

The clouds above the ground below, the moon, the stars
The sun the days and nights which represent that another day is done
I'm grateful for the time to spend too deeply, go within
To top into the source of truth that’s sure to help me win
For it is there that truth comes known regardless what is taught

In manmade circles of world that form restrictive thought
I'm grateful for all my friends who are reading this today
For the bonds that we have formed since your path have crossed my way
And for the future and all it brings for all we have share
The giving of ourselves to show the world how much we care

I've learned to stay in gratitude no matter how things seem
That perceptions held as negatives will only slow your dream
So even though my path will lead through troubled spots
I know, I must keep on, keep focus fixed, on life's abundant flow
There's so much that I’m grateful for, though sometimes

I'll forget, belief rekindled from the past that perceive as threat
But it's these times I must remind myself of what I know
That when they show their presence, that they're here to help me grow
One final thought I’ll share today before I say I’m through
I'm so grateful for this word to give today to all of you
It is my wish that they will help you keep the attitude
Which leads you desire, and comes through gratitude

Sometimes we see things that aren't meant to be seen
Sometimes things aren't always as they seem
Sometimes we need someone to call our own
Especially when we're alone

Sometimes people just can't understand
Why things get out of hand
Sometimes life just isn't fair
Especially when people just don't care

And sometimes it's hard to say
Why things have to be this way
Sometimes it's all you can do to get by
Especially when dream continue to die

Sometimes it's nice to sit in the rain
Even to just relieve the pain
And when we've had a really bad day
Sometimes we just need to go away

We never know what's wrong without pain
Sometimes the hardest thing and the right are the same
And sometimes when people get hurt
Even the strongest ones may need comfort

Difference and Extraordernary

"If you are in a one side you feel the difference, but you are in both sides you are extraordinary."

True Love

"To give Love is to attract opposite sex, but true love is Unexplainable innermost feeling."

Love Story

Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings and emotions lived. Happiness, sadness, knowledge and all the others include love. However one day, it was announced to the couples that the island would sink. So all are prepared their
Boats and left. Love was the only one who stayed. Love wanted to stay until it started sinking; he decided to ask for help. Richness was passing by love in a beautiful boat.Love said, richness, can you take me with you?
Richness answered, no, I can't..... There is a lot of gold and silver in my boat, there is no place for you. Love decided to ask vanity who was passing by, vanity, please help me! I can't help you love.

You are all wet and can probably damage my boat, vanity answered.
Sadness was close by so love asked for help, sadness, let me go with you. Oh...... love, I am so sad that I want to go alone.
Happiness pass by love, but she was too happy that she did not listen when love called her. Suddenly, there was a voice, come love, I will take you. It was an elder

Love becomes so happy that he even forgot to ask the name of the elder. When they
Arrived at the other side, love asked knowledge, who was the elder who helped me?
Knowledge replied it was time. Time said love.
But why did time help me? Knowledge answered: because only time is capable of understanding how great love is”

True chistmas

Once in your life you have been someone
That's live your life that's nobody can
Your truly love i know it is pure
But they  leaves you as uncure

They wasn't know that you are true
Even tough they praises you
They doubted that they believe in you
Because thier dream was not come true

The true love you had share apart
To someone that needed much
Will bring life and that's lighten up
To no one who nevers give up

The one who bless that trully cares
That really know he is there
To anyone who really accept christ
Can experience truely christmas in thier heart

Compose by: Erikho Obido


Sometimes just wondering why?
I can't understand the feelings I felt deep inside
Inspite of all the love that I receive
My heart feels emptiness with in itself

I wish I could express how i felt today
Longing for your tender cares
And sweet voice likes melody to my ears
Dreaming to be with you and forever we will stay

Take my hand and don't let it go
Hold it tight and lead it to your heart
Wrap me up with your loving care
And let me feel that you are there

The hardest part of any friendship
Is when it is time to say goodbye
And even though I wished I could stay
I know I got to go and spread my wings and fly

For life is a journey that needs to be travelled
And I am certain you'd make it through
I just want you to know and never forget
That I will surely miss you

So follow your heart and never give up
As dreams and wishes do come true
For I know that someday we'll meet again
So never forget I will be praying for you

Being away is not an easy thing to do
Leaving each friend behind made my heart sick and felt so blue
Tears keep falling as I remember you
All I wanted is........... To see you
Days had pass, so lonely
Only reminizing the time with my lovely
Feeling so guilty as I turn away
Completely lost, in this struggles of ours
My life has not been easy
Hard times I’ve seen my share
Through trials and tribulation
I face it all alone
At time when I was torn and weak
And could not bear the stress
I remember you all who care and love me
Feeling so empty and weary
While this dramatic side is showing through
With my ability to question and reason
I think I may have found
Something in me that I long to be be with my friends once again
Who are patiently waiting for me?
I hope that i am right of what I am expecting to be
My friends are still here willing to be with me
I'm back..... My friends, ready to share again
Each moment of happiness as well as despair
As long as we are together once again
I will have my courage and strength

Ikaduhang Pamilya

Tugbang ning akong kapait
Nag-antos sa tumang kainit
Sa banyagang nasod kamingaw akong giipit
Kay sa pamilya halos ako munsinggit
Sa kamingaw akong gi-isip panahon sa kangit-ngit

Sa mapalad nakong asawa sya akong gihuna-huna
Kada bulan ako magpadala kay pang-gasto sa among pamilya
Kay siya man ang gaatiman sa pinalangga ko erikha
Nagpa-isug sa pagbugno ning kapalaran
Inspirasyon nga akong gihalaran sa adlaw nga tanan.

Bisan sa kapait ning nagbug-os kong dughan
Ang tanang bisyo akong gibiyaan
Kay pamilya ang akong unang gitagan-an
Pagkapait ning akong pag-antos aron lang mapuslan
Gasang gikan sa ni lord akong gi-ampingan

Mahapsay lang ang kabuntagon ug sweldo na ang pagadawaton
Apan sa kalit lang mahanaw kay pamilya man ang unahon
Walay bali ang kahago kay kalipay man ang mutagbo
Sa bisan sa paghandom ila kining gitago
Sa dihang ako nipaili igo nalang ako sa pagbakhu

Mahal nako nga asawa nagbuhat ug ikaduhang pamilya
Ang bata metagbo wala gani maka-ila
Apan sa kalit nitulo akong luha
Pagsampit niya nako ug papa
Ang mahal nakong anak nga si erikha

by: Erikho Obido


Bisan nahilayo sa panid ning utlanan
Ikaw lang gihapon ang gihanyo sa kapalaran
Nga gustong makauban sa adlaw nga tanan
Kay ikaw man ang nagpahupay sa nagpin-ot kung dughan

Nia man ako sa halayong dapit
Kay gustong kab-oton ang langit
Bisan sa kapit-os ug walay masangpit
Tungod nimu akong antuson ang kapait

Kay ikaw man akong nakaplagan
Sa gugma kung walay utlanan
Bisan ako usa ka kabus lamang
Apan ikaw akong gi ampingan

Bisan ako gikuso-kuso sa pagsulay sa kapalaran
Andam lang gihapon sa pagsapupo sa tanan
Kay ikaw man ang naghari ning akong dughan
Susama sa tin-aw nga tubig akong pagatumsan

Dako nakong kalipay madungog imong talidhay
Sa balod nga walay pagmahay
Kay ikaw man ang akong kalipay
Bisan nahilayo sa imong pagpangindahay

Magkahiusang bukton atong padayunon
Magkahiusang pangandoy atong kab-uton
Bisan nahilayo gugma tiunay atong punto
Kay ikaw kanunay ania sa akung damgo

by: erikho Obido

Ikaw sa Kanunay

Sa adlaw nga tanan kamu akong gibuligan
Kay sa kanunay akung gihangyu sa labing gamhanan
Nga sa kanunay siya nagabantayan
Kay kamu ang hinungdan nga naa ko aning kalibutan

Bisan sa tuman unos 
Iya japon kong gitabangan
Nga mahimong malig-on ang balatian
Kay kamu man ang insperasyon sa adlaw nga tanan

Ang gugmang tiunay maoy nakahatag ug kalipay
Kay ang damgo mao man ang dayag nga ambisyon
Kab-utonon sa umaabot nga dili sayon
Kay sa kanunay ikaw man ang gipangandoy

Bisan sa naghigwaus nga pagsulay
Imo gihapon kong gisapnay
Sa tumang kalipay migawas akong talidhay
Kay ania ka kanunay sa kasakit ug kalipay
By: erikho obido 

Gugmang walay makapukan

Oh gugma, pagka-anindot mong pagasud-ungon
Susama ka sa bulak nga matahum
sa Tunga-tunga ning tanaman ikaw mi-usbong
Ug sa buyog ikaw pagahandumon
Tungod sa imong kaanyag ug katahum.

sa mga kalanggaman ikaw ang insperasyon
kay nakita nila ang imong reputsayon
ug sa tanang butang ikaw adunay sulosyon
ug sila dinha nimu nagsud-ong
kay kanila maantigo ka mupatigayon.

sa bisan sa damgo lamang ikaw akong makit-an
nga ikaw ania-a sa akung tupad ug kiliran
sa akung gugma kanimu walay makapukan
ug higugmaon ko ikaw hangtod sa kahangturan

Adlawng natawhan

image: shutterstock

hilabihan gayud nako nga kalipay
nga nahimugso ko aning kalibutan
kay nabati nako nga pinangga ko sa akong ginikanan
kay ila gayud kong gi-ampingan 
bisan anaa pako sa sabakan sa akong inahan

kaning pagpuyo nako aning kalibutan
gasa kini sa Dios nga labing gamhanan
nga kanunay iya akong gitabangan
ug wala ko niya gipasagdan
kanunay iya akong gi-atiman

dili gayud nako mahikalimtan
ang akong mga kaigsuonan
nga kanunay ani-a sa akong kiliran
panahon sa akong problemang gisagubang
sila akong kasaligan

niining akong adlawng natawhan
kamu ang unang gasa kanako sa Dios Amahan
sa akong kalipay nga walay kahimutanagan
kay kamu man ang nagpahimuot sa akong dughan
ug ang kalipay usab inyung makaplagan

niining bug-os kong dughan
kalipay walay mahimutangan
bisan sa sayon nga paagi
inyu akong gihalaran
sa pagbati ug maayong adlawng natawhan
