Treasure Island


(11/07/1975 / Natonin, Mountain Province, Philippines)


Melvin Banggollay

V-ioly, my love, my life, my desire
On this day let me greet you with fire
Of tender kisses upon your sweet lips
With a fragrance full of lovely tulips.

I-n every dreams I have, you inspire
To keep me going amidst burning fire
Of trials bellowing like dashing ships
To keep me strong against any hardships

O-n this special day you’re born so dear
To build upon this earth without fear
The life you have to care and share
Happy birthday upon thee I declare.

L-ife were full of trials beyond compare
As sorrows seems to be always there
But with the caring touch you share
We can overcome them with cheer.

Y-ou mean so much to me my maiden
You’re everything I prayed in heaven
I wish your love for me will not end
Even the love I have were once shaken.

My gift on her birthday November 23,1969

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
