ONCE MORE IN MEMORY


ONCE MORE IN MEMORY
Melvin Banggollay
Tabuk, Kalinga


Once more in memory I vividly see
The golden moment with my daddy
When I was engulfed by his body
While telling his life's great journey

When morning sets its mystic beam
With shimmering light full of dreams
I was awaken by a smell of a cream
He softly spread on my tender chin.

If He can't awake me from slumber
He pull my blanket only to discover
I am awake but so lazy to adhere
Specially when I am dreaming over.

When I was so young I felt his palm
Tenderly touching my head and arm
Feeling if I have a fever or any harm
Specially when silence is my tongue.

Now that he passed away forever
I can't help but weep as I remember
The great moment we spent together
As I was a son to this great Father.

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
