My life without you in it, lonely and sad.
My future will come, I’ll give myself grace and space for my heart to heal.
Your smell will be washed from my clothes, my hair, my mind.
Your touch, a memory.
Your kiss, forgotten.
I’ll grow stronger knowing I don’t need you to carry on.
When you come back ’round, looking for me, I’ll be gone.
My heart will have already moved on to happier days in the sun.
Without you in my life, I’ll be happy once again.
Of course, this song makes me think of *the blues*, but a quite literal song is “Blue” – Enjoy!
In response to Word-High July: 30 Beautiful Filipino Words
“Much like the colors of the skies, every language is beautiful in its own way—the way they sound and how each word fits perfectly in a poem, a story, or a musical piece. And sometimes we find ourselves wishing how delightful it would be if we could learn those languages by heart and use them in our craft.
That is why Maria of Doodles and Scribbles and Rosema of A Reading Writer have invited you to join their July blog event, Word-High July. They have teamed up to give you a whole month worth of prompts and since we are both #ProudlyPinay, these 30 beautiful Filipino words below will serve as the prompt for each day of the month.

…and the rules…
“Here are the five easy steps to join Word-High July:
- Write or create a post inspired or about the Filipino word prompts.
- A post can be anything. A poem, a fiction, a six-word tale, or even a photo. It’s all up to you.
- Linkback/create a pingback to this post. Here is a quick tutorial on how to do it.
- Tag your post with WordHighJuly, so your co-bloggers will be able to read/see your take on the prompt. Here’s how you create tags.
- Most important of all, read and comment to your blogger friends (old and new found, we’ll never know).
Come join Maria and Rosema in appreciating the beauty of the Filipino language.
Let the #WordHighJuly commence! “
