Whatever happens day by day
While there is life don't cease hoping
For all the troubles that come your way
Always remember to count your blessings.
I miss you from time to time
Can't blame myself, that's right
It's no longer so intense, I don't have to sigh
Still, I miss you from time to time.
It all is so disgusting
Learning after years of pain
What you tried so hard to build
With a snap, all would be in vain.
God gave my family to me
A blessing giftwrapped so beautifully
My father, my mother, my brother, my husband, my children
They are the persons I love dearly.
There's a special woman in my life aside from Mama;
My love, defender, friend - rolled into one;
She's my love, my very special someone;
And this has never changed with time.
The bespectacled tutor captured her heart
Something unexpected, something weird;
For the person who tickles her pink with his ways
Is now the phantom that lurks in her dreams.
Listen to the children, though silently, they weep
Barely out from the crib, now they're on the streets
Peddling flowers and things until the wee hours of morning
When they should've been securely, peacefully asleep.
For all the times you stood by us,
For the gentle but firm words of correction,
For the pride you always felt when we did good,
We hope you also felt our gratitude.
I’ve always enjoyed
Looking at rainbows
Though until now
It beats me why.
