Rookie - 175 Points (11/07/1975 / Natonin, Mountain Province, Philippines)



Memories are like waves of the sea
Coming back to kiss the lovely shore
No matter how one refuses to see
It always find its way to be on the shore
To remind that footprints of memory
Still linger in one's mind and soul.

Memories are flashes of yesterday
That flickers deep in one's thoughts
To tingle the heart to behold the beauty
Of one's past life and great picture
Of courage and guts to face malady
Or feel the sweetness of one's labor.

Yes, as long as the mind is healthy
With deep passion to remember
Memories of one's life will always be
Part of our daily routine and encounter
Even these bring sorrows and agony
They always touch our heart and soul.
