MAHAL KITA


North Celebes coconut and Makati's salt
Mixing in a hot sauce menus
Rocking over tongue and lips
Under candle light dinner in the patio

Before sun set in the slumber, rush
Thirsty to taste your cooking
Serving with curve lips, smile
From mouth fall down in to the heart

Months turn to years, our taste meet
My soul break, you going chemo to abroad
How cruel abandon you alone
Pure love never fade by a brain cancer

Monitor blinks up and down
Medical records cause me tremble
Families support and non stop prayers
And 'Mahal kita' make you strong *)

Speechless by the pain, eyes blink
Blink 'Mahal kita' is a sacred mantra
I wish to share the pain you endure
I cupped your cheeks, whisper
My lips closed, never say good bye
My dear, Mahal kita will last forever



*) Mahal kita, I love you in Tagalog, The Philippines

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
