In the waiting room

Numbers popping on the screen

And names called one after another

On their feet, on wheelchairs and walking sticks

They are patients waiting to be seen.

Here I am, sitting among them

Feeling great that my pain is gradually disappearing

And my life is slowly getting back in place.

I can only pray for every face that I see around me today

Be granted patience and strength

And the recovery they are after will eventually be theirs

*I am grateful to be here with these people, who know that giving up is never an option*

Today, Neurosurgery clinic; 830am #2months after.


I lost my words

Dear words,

I wanted to write
I could not get you out
Where have you been?
Hiding deep in my brain?

I didn’t know how to tell
What really was in my mind
Maybe it was the pain
Making the right you hard to find

I just hope my dear words
Please be kind
The next time around

Me, myself.
#my struggle after the surgery (feb16). I do hope this would explain my silence.

I am awake and I smile

Hope, Love and Patience
Are here with me at all times
Don’t have to count 1 2 3
Don’t have to call for them to come
I can feel their presence even if I could not see
That’s the gift He is giving me
To help me through with this journey
Knowing that He is always there
Guiding me in every step I have to take
Giving me back my smile
So I could share with the love of my life
#gratitude

I am strong, don’t you see?

We sat there
The two of us
Quietly sipped our tea
Speechless
Not knowing what to say
Anxious and worried
We just stared at each other
We talked through our eyes;
If only you could read my mind
If only you could understand this silence
I was actually telling you and me,

This might be the closure
In these few days to come

You’ve just got to believe me
I am strong, don’t you see?
