Home Of Hearts - Poem by Raeldayan Aplaon

A candle brings you light and life
It helps you see the path
With radiant light it guides you home
A blessing from above

Papa and Mama are precious gifts from God
They never cease to warm our lives
They are our hearts’ delight
Papa and Mama are candles in the dark
They give us light, the spring of life
The home of every heart

They are our greatest gift from God
And nothing can compare
They are the gentle touch of love
The hand of God that cares

Sometimes we make them cry
Sometimes we bid them bye
We’ll never know what precious pearls are they
Until they go away
So give your love to embrace them everyday
They are your memories
