Hiwaga Ng Buhay/Life’s Mysteries
Life goes on
It does not stop.
Like the river, its flowing before we came
And will endure long after we are gone.
It moves forth
But retains the echoes of our presence
The sole testimony that once,
We shared the course of life.
The infinite pebbles that cover
The canal floors and its reefs
Are the multitude of life
That are nourished by its springs
And shaped by its currents.
We come to leave and return
To the banks of the river.
We drink from its fountains
Bathe in the streams.
By its mystical beauty.
I often watch and wonder where the river came and where life goes. For now, I can only look as far as my eyes can see and my mind can imagine. ~ Jeques
