"Ligawan Noon at Ngayon - Ano ang Pagkakaiba?"






NOON...
Kahoy ay sinisibak
Tubig ay iniigib
Mabangong bulaklak
ang handog sa babaeng iniibig.


NGAYON...
Cellphone ang nasa kamay
o sa harap ng computer, naglamay
Nagkasagutan na ang dalawa
"In a relationship" na ang status nila.

Being The Eldest of Four


Simplymarrimye - Being the eldest of four
From left to right - DL, Mommy, Daddy, Malu, Mahlen, ME and Kiko


Filipino families are known to be
closely-knitted
With a father, working hard for the money
a mother, keeping the home
 a shelter of harmony
and the children, burning eyebrows
to get a degree..


Typical and basic as it is...
I came from an environment with
humble beginnings.
A product of early marriage... the firstborn
and the eldest of four
was raised by a couple who
struggled, lived and survived the
difficulties of life.

Miles Away

Miles away from you



The future is promising
And blessings are abundant
Working hard to provide
Even it means being away... miles away from home.


There are moments of joy
We're not able to share
There are moments of worries
With no shoulder to cry on.


There are times of sickness
I feel not your warmth
But I have to be strong
for our kids and their future.

The Hurting




Tears continue flowing
my eyes never dried
the past keeps on hurting
relieving the pain, I've tried.


Seeking for true happiness
wounds of heart, I get
filling up this emptiness
is much to my regret.
