Time to Live

No time to sing,

No time to play,

No time for kindness,

Romance, no way!


No time to smile,

No time to laugh,

No time to dream…

What life is that?


Everyone here now,

Is alive and breathing…

But will you be among the few,

Who make time for LIVING?


You can stop,

To savor a sunset,

Smell a rose,

Or touch a heart…


Or would you rather,

Spend your days grave digging?


-Gilda Patricia



For My Son

God broke off

a piece of the sun,

when He sent,

my son.

Passionate and fiery,

such a brilliant light!

Bursting ball of energy,

of creativity, of love.

Beams of exuberance,

dance from his eyes,

while streams of joy,

trail his laughter.

A smile to capture,

and warm the heart,

of every storm cloud,

passing through dreary skies…

Sharing this “humaling,”

for my son.

Love, Your Mom
