To see the dawn is the start of another new day...
the blossoming of a new life... the birth of another poem.
A poem that serves as the outlet of man's affections
and outbursts - it is everlasting, ever-flowing, and
touching the deepest embers of the heart.
There is magic everytime I touch a pen and start
translating my thoughts and flashes into words, then
weaving these words into lyrics of an emerging poem.
Truly, man's feelings are not that elusive, after all,
as they can be captured in a poem! Embraced
passionately in between the lines, a poem enriches
and ennobles the soul and let it be filled with
peace ... more »

Elmer Romulo Valdez Poems
A Time for Love
A time for love, A moment of truth, Between you and me.
Love at First Sight
My Lady when I first saw you, I was enchanted by your glow, Thoughts slipped away from me, As you charmed me along the way.
Surely thre's sunrise always, To lift the mask of the night, To open the secrets of the day, And to rouse the sleepy soul.
Eyes of the Sand
Tread softly on the sand, As it guards the land, It has a million eye, Peering at the azure sky.
Darkness suddenly came, Without any warning; Like the fleeting wind, To disturb the calmness.
Memories are Forever
Memories never die, They just flirt around, And peep behind curtains.
A Sojourner's Prayer
Almighty Father in Heaven: My journey into this world is arduous, I've already walked thousands of miles,
Shoulders in a Sling
How did it come to happen, I don't see the reason why, There are cold shoulders, Furtive glances and eyes
Is there something left for me, To set my goal and aspire for? When fond hopes in my heart, Start to dry out and wither?
Your fate is in your hands, And that of our young love. Let not your attempts
An Eternal Love
Open your bright eyes, Flower of my dreams! The solitary marble bench,
Burning sands, roaring winds on fire, Bearded masks, moving masses in white; Alien taps and nods, strange sounds, All unfamiliar, these unknown stares.
There's weariness, that clings tightly, There's a sadness, for having existed,
A trust in a strange heart, An affection within a wall; Thorns shield the innocence, To inspire a struggling mind.

A Time for Love
A time for love,
A moment of truth,
Between you and me.
Two youthful hearts,
Throbbing within frail,
Every minute melting,
Into hours and days,
Deepens the affection.
Thick fogs at twilight,
Under the pine tree.
The flash of a smile,
And the dropp of tears,
Tighten love's bond.
The chain of devotion,
Strengthened by passion,
Would last for all times.
Every obsession and
Every hope I weave,
Just for you alone.
My muse, my dearest love,
