Perpekto
Elmo Cross Jul 10
Oo aaminin ko,
di ako perpekto
Oo alam na alam ko,
sa sarili ko di ako kuntento

Marami akong pagkukulang,
marami akong kamalian
Ngunit hindi kailanman
Na ako'y nagsisi na pinili ka

Maaaring hindi nga ako talaga magiging perpekto
Pero ito ay ayos lang
Basta kasama ka
Ang nilalang na nagpalimot ng aking pagkukulang

Bakit ba sadyang kay Ganda ng mundong ito
Kung tutuusin ay wala naman perpekto dito
Siguro ako'y masyado **** nabighani
Siguro ay ikaw na ang aking mundo

Oo aaminin ko, hindi ako perpekto
At kailanman ay hindi magiging perpekto
Pero ito ay ayos lamang
Dahil ikaw naman ang bubuo sa aking pagkukulang
Binababa ko na lahat ng yabang ko at inaamin na hindi ako magiging perpekto kailanman. Ako ay isang mortal at makasalanan na iniligtas lang ng Diyos. Pero sana ako pa rin ay tanggapin mo kahit na ganito ako, aking iniirog.
Elmo Cross Jun 7
Kung ako ba ay aamin
Ikaw ba ay mapapasaakin?
Kung ako ba ay magbubukas ng aking loob
Ako ba ay iyong tatanggapin

O aking mahal ako ay natatakot
Na baka kapag ako ay umamin
Ay baka iyong malimot
Ang pagiging magkaibigan natin

Sa totoo lang ay ayokong iyong malaman
Na mahal na mahal kita
Dahil ayokong masira ang ating pagkakaibigan
Dumistansya ka ay ayokong makita

Mabuti pa na maging magkaibigan na lang muna
Hanggang sa kung kailan gusto ng Diyos
Na may umamin ng una
At maglahad ng ating nararamdaman

Sana dumating ang panahon na iyon
Kung saan ako ay pwede na umamin at ikaw ay pwede pa
Dahil hanggang sa oras na iyon pakatatandaan mo
Na ikaw lang ang aking minahal at wala ng iba
Minsan takot tayo umamin kasi ayaw natin may magbago sa ating dalawa. Kung kaya't mas pinabuti na lang na magkaibigan na lang muna tayo.

I can't wait!
Elmo Cross Jan 31
To be honest, I can't wait
I mean who can wait to see your smile everyday
To wake up telling you how I love you
And to pray and start the day with you

I can't wait to hold your hands
To feel the warmth of my lover's hand
I can't wait to show the world how special you are
And how lucky and blessed I am

I can't wait to share our problems with each other
And to fix it one after another
I can't wait to lie in bed and do nothing
For as long as you are there, I have everything

I can't wait to have some bedtime stories
Of course not for me, but for our kiddies
I can't wait to tell them how we met
And how I waited for you, they'll laugh I bet

All these things will soon come to past
And I hope that my waiting will be fulfilled at last
Surely, God has a perfect time for everything
So even if I can't really wait, I'll do my best to wait for my darling
I'm so excited about the future. I can't wait to be with you. I hope you feel the same way too.

Tell Her
Elmo Cross Dec 2018
If only I could say I love you
I would shout it out everyday
If only I could say I need you
With you by my side, I will forever stay

If only I could hug you
I will never release my hold on you
And If only I could always be with you
I would always sing and play for you

What is the value of these lines?
When you cannot ever hear them
If God is not yet giving me signs
Should I rush them?

I know someday you will see
All the poems and words I made
For no words are left unseen
And I promise you that these promises will never fade

Will all my heart I promise
that these words will never be kept unsaid
And with my life I promise
That my love for you will never end


I love you.
I have so much to say about you G. I can't wait for that final moment. ❤️

Tanong
Elmo Cross Dec 2018
Maraming tao ang nagtatanong
Bakit hindi ako nagsasawa sa kanya
Andaming taong nagtatanong
Ano bang meron at gustong gusto ko siya

Simula nung una ko siyang makita
Naramdaman ko na siya na
Siya na ang bubuo sa mundong kulang
Kulang ng kanyang ganda at kabaitan

Ganda niya ay bukod tangi
Tingin niya ay nakasasabik
Wala akong ibang gustong makita
Kundi ang kanyang matamis na mga mata

Hindi ko rin talaga alam
Kung bakit gustong gusto ko siya
Kung sa tutuusin
Ay marami naman ang mas maganda sa kanya

Siguro ito na nga ang pag-ibig
Hindi nakatingin sa panlabas na anyo
Ngunit tapat at desidido
Sa taong gustong **** maging kalaguyo
Minsan ako ay nagugulat sa aking pagiging tapat sa kanya. Kung tutuusin ay matagal na dapat akong nagkaroon ng ibang gusto dito sa unibersidad pero hinde. Mahal ko siya at patuloy akong iibig sa kanya hanggat sa mawalan na talaga ako ng pag-asa.

Kailan Kaya?
Elmo Cross Nov 2018
Darating kaya ang araw
Na ika'y mahahagkan
Darating kaya ang araw
Na ang puso mo'y aking makakamtan

Mababasa mo kaya
Ang mga tulang isinulat
Masasabi ko kaya
Ang mga salitang matagal nang sinabi dapat

Ang mga papel at tintang ginamit
Masasayang na lang ba
Ang mga kantang inawit
Hanggang sa hangin na lang ba

Hindi ko alam kung kailan ba
Umagang hinihintay darating ba
Dapat bang umasa pa
Sulit pa ba maghintay pa

Kailan kaya tayo pagtatagpuin
Ng mga makukulit na bituin
Sana ito'y dumating
Kailan kaya darating
Kailan ko kaya malalapitan ang iyong puso o giliw.

With a Smile
Elmo Cross Nov 2018
I will not deny
That your smile makes me sigh
I will not deny
That your smile makes me stare for a while

For when I see you coming
I feel my blood rushing
And when you start talking
I cannot reply without stuttering

With a smile
You charmed my heart
And with your smile
I've fallen into your heart

How amazing life could be
That with a smile you can fall forever be
If this what love feels like
Oh how amazing our God is like

I wrote this poem
Because of your lovely and graceful smile
And I hope that someday you will come home
Still with that beautiful Smile
Ahhhh my heart!!! I can't contain my feelings  when she smiled to me last Saturday. How I wish I could bottle up that moment.

Binibini
Elmo Cross Sep 2018
Ako'y hindi makapaniwala
Sa mga iginuhit ng mga tala
Dahil sinong mag-aakala
Na ikaw ay aking makikilala

Ikaw ang babaeng nagpatibok
Sa aking pusong patay
Sa ngalan ng pag-ibig ako'y lumahok
Ang kalaban na si tadhana ang naghihintay

Bagamat ako'y isang normal na tao lamang
Umiibig sa isang diyosang kay ganda
Ano ba ang aking kailangan
Upang ika'y aking makuha

Maaaring ito'y pagibig na walang patutunguhan
O di kaya ay pag-ibig na may katuturan
Ano man ang aking maging tadhana
Ang ibigin ka ay aking ikararangal

Kaya Binibini, ikaw ang aking minimithi
Kamay mo ang aking nais
At kung ako man ay magwagi
Pangakong ikaw lang ang magiging irog hanggang sa huli
Para kang diyosa sa ganda. Kahit kailan ay hindi ako nagsawa sayo binibini. Hi G!

Chained Heart
Elmo Cross Sep 2018
You benevolent woman
You prisoned my heart
For the eyes that are desired by every man
Are the eyes that also captured my heart

Why do you have to do this?
Why do I have to bear
The curse of falling into your Kiss
The curse brought by your stare

Now I'm chained to you love
A love that is all I ever want
That no other woman can have
And this only you can grant

So please unchain me from this curse
Let your love be fully mine
Let me be the first
To be unlocked and to say you are mine

Oh Benevolent woman
Your love is the only key
For this locked heart of  man
A man whose heart was locked by thee
Oh girl, you just locked my heart and now I can't love no one but you. Whatttt have you doooneee?

One of a kind
Elmo Cross Aug 2018
Let me tell you about a girl I met
She was like an angel that the heaven sent
I was so amazed in what I felt
Oh how lovely is this girl I met

She was so dazzling and beautiful
Her eyes were twinkling so wonderful
Her smile oh how capturing is thee
My heart was enticed in this wonderful 'she'

When she talks, she speaks with wisdom
And when she walks, she moves in freedom
A girl in which her soul is as beautiful as her eyes
A girl which in heaven lies

Shunt the light and I'll still see
For she is my light and my everlasting glee
No depth nor heights will break my love
For she is the girl I want to have

Oh let me tell you about a Girl I met
She Is not a girl that anyone can get
That is why I must also never forget
That I must also be the man that she will want to get
It's more than a year since I first saw you and I still can't believe that a woman like you really exist! Hallooo G!

Ikaw pa rin
Elmo Cross Aug 2018
Pumasok man sa bagong paaralan
At may mga bago nang silid-aralan
Magkaroon man ng mga bagong kasama
Ikaw pa rin ang gusto kong makasama

Dumami man ang mga magagandang binibini
At magdagsaan man ang mga babaeng nakangiti
Ikaw lang ang gusto ko
Wala nang iba o mahal ko

Lumayo man ikaw sa aking piling
At magiba man ang iyong 'feelings'
Ikaw lang ang aking mithiin
Magpakailanman, aking hihintayin

Pero kung sakali man ito'y mangyari
Na ika'y magkagusto sa ibang lalaki
Di bale na, ikaw pa rin ang aking mahal
Ang panalangin ko sa may kapal

Kung ako man ay umuwi'ng talunan
Dahil sa  pagibig na walang katuturan
Ako pa rin ay magluluksa at magdarasal
Na baka sakaling ako naman ang maging iyong mahal
Ikaw pa rin ang gusto ko.

Kilala Kita
Elmo Cross Jul 2018
Ang iyong ngiti ay kay tamis
Laging bago, laging nakakamiss
Tuwing ika'y aking nakikita
Parang ito ang una nating pagkikita

Ang iyong tingin ay nakakatunaw
Kapag ika'y lumingon, kilig ko'y umaapaw
Di ko alam kung bakit laging kinikilig
Basta't alam kong ikaw lang ang aking iniibig

Ang iyong buhok ay kabisado ko na
Kahit nakatalikod ka'y kilala kita
Walang araw na hindi ka gusto makausap
Walang oras na hindi ka gustong mahagilap

Ang iyong kamay na kay liit
Ay sobrang bagay sa ugali **** marikit
Nakakatawa man kung iyong iisipin
Pero aaminin kong ikaw ang tangi kong mithiin

Sa lahat ng iyong mga katangian
At sa tagal na nating nagke-kwentuhan
Hindi ko pa rin matanto
Kung bakit ikaw ay laging bago.
This is for the Girl that I am really in love with. Everytime I see her, it's always like the first time that I saw her.

Ako nagsisi na nakilala ka?
Elmo Cross Jul 2018
"Nagsisi ka ba na nakilala mo ako?"
Ito ang sinabi mo sa akin habang ika'y nagkekwento
Tungkol sa iyong pagkatao
Na tila ayaw na ayaw mo

Sinabi mo na hindi mo gusto ang iyong sarili
At inamin **** wala kang ipagmamalaki
Di mo lang alam na hindi ito totoo
Sapagkat nakita ko na ang tunay **** pagkatao

Ikaw ay namumukod tangi
Isang bituin na tila umaawit
Naiiba sa ibang tala
Nagniningning na parang gantimpala

Aking pag-ibig ay hindi ko masabi
Sapagkat alam kong ako'y mayayari
Kaya sa simpleng puri ito'y sinisingit
Ang aking patagong pagibig sa iyo O! Aking langit

Ngayon man ay hindi ko mabigkas sayo binibini
Balang araw ay aking ring masasabi
Na ikaw ang taong gusto ko
Personalidad mo, binighani ako
Another tagalog poem for the person I like the most but hates herself. Ano ka ba, hindi ko lang masabi pero para sa akin nasayo na ang lahat. Walang labis, walang kulang tulad ng pag-ibig ko sayo sinta.
Elmo Cross Jun 2018
Isang tinapay
Sa kaibigang tunay
Ensaymada ang hinintay
Brownies ang binigay

Nagsimula sa 'Hi'
Ngayo'y ang dalawa ay High
Jokes ang kanilang tulay
Pareho namang sablay

Kalokohan man ang kwentuhan
Ngunit nariyan naman pag seryosohan.
Sa tuwing may kailangan
Ang bawat isa'y pwede nilang asahan

Saksi ang mga tala
Sa magkaibigang tulala
Matapos man ang walang hanggan
Sila pa rin ay sabog at kabog kailanman
Hahahah, just another Filipino Poem made by me and Gaille. Both of us are crazy in many ways haha!!!

Poems
Elmo Cross Jun 2018
When pen and paper is all you have
You have to be creative with your love
To write a poem is the talent I have
To write for you is my expression of love

When I make a letter for you
It means you are special to me
But when I write a poem for you
Oh dear, it means you are loved by me

When you run into my mind
And I can't express myself
The Paper is what I'll find
And I'll immediately write all by myself

For with every word that I make
And with every sweet talks that I write
There is a promise you can take
In which all of it is true and right

I hope that time will come and you will see
All the poems I made for thee
In which every single one is made out of my heart
Which I kept from you right from the start
Sometimes we express our love using poems. I guess this is my way of expressing my love for you and I hope that someday you'll see all these poems that I made solely for you G.

Sabaw at Sabog (Ez)
Elmo Cross Jun 2018
Bakit ba tayo ganito?
Ang kasabugan natin ay todo
Kapag nagkwentuhan puro kalokohan
Lahat ng makita ay tinatawanan

Etong si Gaille na sabaw
Kasiyahan ay mababaw
At si Eze na sabog
Parang batang hamog
Hahahha just a short funny impromptu poem made with Gaille.

What a Stranger!
Elmo Cross May 2018
I have to admit
For me, you are a stranger everyday
I need to admit
That your beauty is new every single day

Everytime I see you
It feels like I've never known you
Your face and your eyes
I can't remember what lies behind those smiles

When I see you
I feel there's something new
Even though we already met several times
I'm still attracted to you like it's the first time

It may look like I always forget you
No, In fact I always think of you
It's just that I do not know why am I like this
And why am I always bothered by you, Miss

Pardon me, for I just can't understand how I feel
That's why I wrote this poem for you read
That my feelings for you is real
And that my 'kilig' for you will never cease
Kilig  is a Filipino word for the feeling you feel when you see your significant one. It has no english translation and it is a word to express you feeling towards a very special person. HI G!!!

Stare
Elmo Cross May 2018
How peculiar is it for me
To have a weakness like thee
Your eyes in which you use to stare
Oh it's a thing I will never bear

Whenever you look into my eyes
I can't help but to 'sigh'
For your face is so lovely
And your eyes, oh they're so pretty

While you talk and stare
I wish I could memorize that glare
For everytime our eyes connect
I can only say: "Darling, you're so perfect."

I believe that your eyes stole the stars
For the stare of your eyes overpowers my scars
How I wish this would never end
That staring of your eyes so gemmed

That's why look into my eyes
So that I can see the stars in the sky
Never leave me and please don't leave my sight
For you are my world and my ever source of light
Believe me or not, when you look at me, I always feel butterflies in my stomach.
May 2018 · 241
Why
Elmo Cross May 2018
Why
Why does it always have to be like this?
That my knees feel weak when you smile with bliss
Why do you always have to look so pretty?
And make the world go round like crazy.

Why do you always have my attention?
Oh I can't help but to give you recognition
Why do you always need to smile beautifully?
Stop it, because I can't breath easily.

Why do you always look at me?
Please, I can't help but to melt quickly?
Why do you look like you are interested in me?
I don't want to assume, but who knows... maybe?

Why do I feel loved when I'm with you?
Well I guess it's love that's only tailored for us two.
Why does it feel so precious to spend time with you?
It feels like there is a connection between me and you.

Why does it feel that you are the one for me?
Oh I hope that God will give thee.
For it is really hard to answer these questions so few
When there is only one answer and that is 'You'.
Hi G! I made these poems all for you and that someday you might be able to read these feelings that I hid for the perfect time that God has for us. I hope that He will bless you more as you grow deeper in your relationship with Him.

Love is a sacrifice
Elmo Cross May 2018
They say 'to love means to sacrifice'
But for me, this statement will never suffice
To explain how I love you
And how I really care for you

If to see you means to be blind
Then seeing darkness all of my life is a thing 'I don't mind'
If to have your heart means to give my all
'All' is not enough, 'to give myself' is my call

If to have you means pain
I would enjoy being slain
If to hold you in my arms means to fight for you
Show me every challenger you got, I could fight them all for you


And then I thought, maybe these things are not enough
Or maybe, I am the one who's not enough
But I love you
And I care for you

That is why, If I have to leave for your own good
I would leave crying because I did everything I could
For I know from the start that to love you might mean death
A death which I will gladly sing with my last breath
Sometimes I thought I am not enough for her. But since I love her, I am willing to leave her just for her own good.

Love is a sacrifice that you must be willing to take. Even if it requires your own death.

Hi Friend!
Elmo Cross May 2018
I wrote this poem for my close friend
In which I hope our friendship will never end
As we grow closer to each other
I hope that this poem will help us grow deeper

I promise that I will help you grow
Even in times when you are feeling low
I promise to help you keep going
Even when the world says "You should stop continuing"

I promise to help you build your Faith
Forever you can share your problems to me, mate.
I promise to help you to stand up
When you are about to give up

I promise to always be here
No matter what happens I'll have no fear
I promise to be patient with you
No matter how naughty you do

Lastly, I promise that I will always be here
And I hope that you won't leave me dear
For our friendship is too precious to me
And to lose it will not happen forever be
For my girl close friend, I promise to protect and to help you grow in your relationship with the Lord.

I'm Sorry
Elmo Cross May 2018
When I heard that you learned the truth
I was worried that you might give me bad 'fruit'
Hiding it is my biggest mistake
But it's the best way I can make

I'm sorry if I did not tell you the truth
That you are my most precious loot
I'm sorry that I have to hide my feelings
Because I'm afraid that you might leave me falling

I'm sorry that I always laugh whenever I'm with you
Because you don't know that my source of happiness is you
I'm sorry if I had to tell you 'corny' jokes all the time
Because It's the only way I can make you smile

I'm sorry if I can't say that you're so beautiful everyday
Believe me your beauty is a thing no words can say
I'm sorry because whenever you say 'I'm so ****'
I can't tell you that you are the prettiest girl and the person that I want to marry

I'm sorry because I kept all these things for myself
But I hope that someday you would see this for yourself
And I'm also sorry if I can't say I love you
But don't worry, I've been praying for you
... and that's the same thing, right?
If you accidentally read my poems for you. I'm sorry that I need to hide my feelings for you. Sorry.

Conversation Starter
Elmo Cross May 2018
Many people ask me:
"How do you manage to act normally?
Knowing that you really like her
How can you even talk to her with care?"

Smiling slowly
Laughing quietly
I replied:
"I just love her, my Friend;

To love someone who has the same mind with you
Is like to have a bestfriend who will always laugh with you
Sometimes, to be honest, I forget that I even like her,
Because I enjoy being with her."

A guy then replied,
In which of course, to answer is a thing I cannot deny
He then asked me this question:
"Lad, how then do you start your conversation?"

Slow as it may seem
I decided to answer him:
"Sir, I guess my conversation starter
Is my love for her."
To my best buddy, and the girl I want to pursue someday. My life became better when I met you.

Turquoise Dress
Elmo Cross May 2018
It was sunday morning
And I saw you smiling
Wearing that Turquoise dress
Oh what a Finesse

Then you start heading towards me
So I hid quickly
Thinking you wont see me
I decided to peek slowly

It was then I realize
That you were in front of me
And I was mesmerize
For you are an art made beautifully

Slowly, you walk away
I dont know what to say
I think i found love
In the most amazing way

Then i realize that you are the one I want to have
No matter how hard it is for you to be impressed
For there is no other person I would love
Other than you girl in a Turquoise dress
For the woman who made my knees weak and my heart beat again. Girl in a Turquoise Dress.

Stargazing
Elmo Cross Apr 2018
What a lovely night it is to see
How beautiful  the sky should be
As we lie down in the sand beside the sea
You're the only star that I  see

Whenever you smile at the sky
My heart flutters and cry
Oh how beautiful are all the star that I see
Yet the prettiest one is beside me

While the moon watches the two of us
I cannot help but to talk about us
For every time I think of the night ending
I just want to keep our conversation going

As the stars pass by and
Our time starts to say goodbye
And every shooting star
Is starting to leave the sky

I hope you remember this day
When we stargazed this wonderful night
Because you are the only star that
Made me smile and love the sky.
For the star of my life, my ever shining beacon of love! April 28, 2018

Oh How Lovely!
Elmo Cross Apr 2018
Oh how lovely is she!
As she walks down in the aisle with glee
Seemingly goddess with her smile
I'm always struck, making me stare for a while

When I see her gleaming eyes
I feel like I'm watching the skyline
While twinkling so pure and bright
Her eyes make the other stars lose their light

When she smiles at me
I'm always left amazed
For I cannot unsee
The beauty of a girl that made me so dazed

When she talks about her Faith
She charms my soul
For  when she speaks with wisdom
It makes her whole

Oh how lovely and one of a kind  is she
For nowadays it is so rare to see
A girl that is so captivating and starstrucking  like thee
And still fears and loves the Lord with glee
Your faithfulness in the Lord is what turns me on.

— The End —
