."In all the world, there's just one you."


We met upon the Internet,
A friendship electronic,
Expressed alone in words and thoughts,
Inevitably platonic.

We live too far apart for us
To mingle in the flesh,
But much more close than family,
Our hearts and feelings mesh.

Your dear, dear self reveals itself
Without a voice or face.
We have our own sweet home within
Our precious cyberspace.

I'm Your Friend, I'm Your Best Friend

In my heart I'm confident
Two attitudes can blend
So I can always feel that
I'm your friend, I'm your best friend.

I know that our relationship
Is one we must defend
Though changes are occurring,
I'm your friend, I'm your best friend.

The words that we share with
One another are so strong
And that gives me a reason why
I'm your friend, I'm your best friend.

There is a sense of love and warmth
On which we both depend
It lets me say with fondness -
I'm your friend, I'm your best friend.

The bond that we have built with time
Is one that mustn't end
It must in fact grow stronger -
I'm your friend, I'm your best friend.

                                                 A LOVE STORY

One day, I woke early in the morning to watch the sunrise. Ah the beauty of God's creation is beyond description. As I watched, I praised God for His beautiful work. As I sat there, I felt the Lord's presence with me.

He asked me, "Do you love me?" I answered, "Of course, God! You are my Lord and Saviour!" Then He asked, "If you were physically handicapped, would you still love me?" I was perplexed. I looked down upon my arms, legs and the rest of my body and wondered how many things I wouldn't be able to do, the things that I took for granted. And I answered, "It would be tough Lord, but I would still love You."

Then the Lord said, "If you were blind, would you still love my creation?" How could I love something without being able to see it? Then I thought of all the blind people in the world and how many of them still loved God and His creation. So I answered, "It's hard to think of it, but I would still love you."

The Lord then asked me, "If you were deaf, would you still listen to my word?" How could I listen to anything being deaf? Then I understood. Listening to God's word is not merely using our ears, but our hearts. I answered, "It would be tough, but I would still listen to Your word."

Then the Lord asked, "If you were mute, would you still praise My Name?" How could I praise without a voice? Then it occurred to me: God wants us to sing from our very heart and soul. It never matters what we sound like. And praising God is not always with a song, but when we are persecuted, we give God praise with our words of thanks. So I answered, "Though I could not physically sing, I would still praise Your Name.

And the Lord asked, "Do you really love Me?" With courage and a strong conviction, I answered boldly, "Yes Lord! I love You because You are the one and true God!" I thought I had answered well, but God asked, "THEN WHY DO YOU SIN?" I answered, "Because I am only human. I am not perfect." "THEN WHY IN TIMES OF PEACE DO YOU STRAY THE FURTHEST? WHY ONLY IN TIMES OF TROUBLED DO YOU PRAY THE EARNEST?" No answers. Only tears.

The Lord continued: "Why only sing at fellowships and retreats? Why seek Me only in times of worship? Why ask things so selfishly? Why ask things so unfaithfully?" The tears continued to roll down my cheeks. Why are you ashamed of Me? Why are you not spreading the good news? Why in times of persecution, you cry to others when I offer My shoulder to cry on? Why make excuses when I give you opportunities to serve in My Name?" I tried to answer, but there was no answer to give.

"You are blessed with life. I made you not to throw this gift away. I have blessed you with talents to serve Me, but you continue to turn away. I have revealed My word to you, but you do not gain in knowledge. I have spoken to you, but your ears were closed. I have shown My blessings to you, but your eyes were turned away. I have sent you servants, but you sat idly by as they were pushed away. I have heard your prayers and I have answered them all."

"DO YOU TRULY LOVE ME?" I could not answer. How could I? I was embarrassed beyond belief. I had no excuse. What could I say to this? When my heart had cried out and the tears had flowed, I said, "Please forgive me Lord. I am unworthy to be Your child." The Lord answered, "That is My Grace, My child."  I asked, "Then why do you continue to forgive me? Why do You love me so?" The Lord answered,

"Because you are My creation. You are my child I will never abandon you.
When you cry, I will have compassion and cry with you. When you shout with joy,
I will laugh with you. When you are down, I will encourage you. When you fall, I will raise you up. When you are tired, I will carry you. I will be with you till the end of days,
and I will love you forever."

Never had I cried so hard before. How could I have been so cold? How could I have hurt God as I had done? I asked God, "How much do You love me?" The Lord stretched out His arms, and I saw His nail-pierced hands. I bowed down at the feet of Christ, my Savior. And for the first time, I truly prayed.

Eruel P. De los Reyes,
a very good friend from long time


You need me ...

I cried a tear, you wiped it dry
I was confused, you cleared my mind
I sold my soul, you bought it back for me
And held me up, and gave me dignity
Some how you needed me ....

You gave me strength, to stand alone again
To face the world, out on my own again
You put me high, upon a pedestal
So high that I could almost see eternity
You needed me, you needed me ...

And I can't believe it's you, I can't believe it's true
I needed you, and you were there
And I'll never leave, why should I leave
I'd be a fool, 'cos I finally found someone
Who really cares

You held my hand, when it was cold
When I was lost, you took me home
You gave me hope, when I was at the end
And turned my lies, back into truth again
You even called me "friend"

You gave me strength, to stand alone again
To face the world, out on my own again
You put me high, upon a pedestal
So high that i could almost see eternity
You needed me ...

You needed me, you needed me
You needed me, oh yes you needed me ...

The soul listens when the heart sings...

You're my world, you're every breath i take
You're my world, you're every move i made
Other eyes see the stars up in the sky
but for me they shine within your eyes
as the trees reach for the sun above
so my arms reach out to you, my love
with your hand, resting in mine
I feel the power so divine

You're my world, you are my night and day
You're my world, you're every prayer , i prayed
if our love ceases to be
then it's the end of my world for me

With your hand resting in mine
I feel the power so divine

If our love ceases to be
then it's the end of my world
end of my world
end of my world for me.
