Treasure Island

Marvin Brato Sr

(March 2,1960 / Davao City, Philippines)

((((Proud Father))


My son, at your birth
You are like a jewel
Instills an innate mirth
An aura ringing a bell

My son, as a kid
You are creative
As you always did
Arts quite perceptive

My son, as adolescent
You act as regular lad
With a mature ascent
Make me feels glad

My son, as you now stride
On this graduation installs
A gained triumphant pride
Flowing in me like waterfalls

    I do like the way you describe the flowing of your feeling - like a waterfall.
    This is a wonderful tribute to your son.

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
