The Prayer Of Doña Loleng - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

Doña Loleng
celebrated her
95th birthday
yesterday

she is a widow
ten years ago

she had ten children
25 grand children
and 8 great grand
children

the party was
grand and well
attended by the
neighborhood

two cows were
butchered
five pigs and
wine flowed like
a river
and desserts like
hills and
mountains

food was superb
and the entertainment
was more than
magnificent

singers from the
city were hired
and there were two
clowns for her
grandchildren

how thankful
could she be

that night she
could not sleep
she prays that
she may be granted
finally her much
needed appointment
with her
very kind Creator.
