Best in Me


When you listen to my worries
It’s like my heart begins to feel lighten
To be able to pour out my feelings
Is like being able to break down the bars
That keep me captive in a dark prison
Sometimes I feel lost but your guiding hand
Never fails to lead me back
I may lose my temper at you a million times
But you still remain my friend
You know me better than I know myself
When I listen to you and what your advise is
I feel my heart in the right place
Safe in your loving hands
You always gently invite me to grow into
A beautiful flower that blooms in the sunshine
The ray of hope you’ve given me
Is the precious gift that I should treasure
By gently telling me to have faith in you
Show me in little ways how to share
And give of myself to others
Cause you bring out the best in me, my Jesus

By C. E. Pereira



I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. In recent years, the younger generation have added on to include spouses from the Philippines, Nigeria and Russia. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
