Dear Timothé: As a Nephew Turns Two

PhotoGrid_1508673803750.jpgHow glad we are
To be able to hug you
For real each year
To get to know you
For weeks is rare
To see what you eat
How you sleep
Know your favorites

Indeed to be in Pinas
For overseas pinoys
Is beyond a decision
It’s a commitment
Your dad had made
With your papaLo daw
For your mom to see
Once a year her family

God bless you Timothé
And your loving family
You’re so blessed with
Marvelous papâ et mamâ
Who value relationships
Hardwork and service
Who go out of their way
To make others feel okay

Thanks to technology
That at such young age
We get to see you bake
In the Crèche with granny
And smell various herbs
Oh how so wonderful!
Such learning environ
Stay smiling Timothé




The Heart of My Other Half























your heart is indeed this BIG

when it comes to loving and caring

the people who matter to you

including even those who

may not matter to others at all

but to you everyone is as

significant as part in this web of life

who did’nt tell me I am swerte?

for martin is buotan from Lingkod brethren

to acquaintances around Iligan

yes it is true you have

what other husbands may not have

lengthened patience and flexibility

to name a few from a long list

you do what they may not do

taking the child rearing part with joy

to complement my child bearing odyssey

changing diapers even in the wee hours

holding the baby to breastfeed

when my deep CS cut’s

bothered my every move

accomplish the kids’ toilet-training

by waking up to let every child

pee in the middle of the night

bringing lunch to the schoolchild

amidst the day as a working dad

never was there a waver

in all these and that of our journey

of course I’d say married life has become

as easy as 1-2-3 with you as the other half

so supportive of my beauty =)

including my vanity

so the kids would often say

daddy loves mommy

for before their eyes

they’d see how you are towards me

so these revelations

are my way of telling the world

a husband can do all these and that

and still look handsome and masculine

and my way of saying to the Lord

I am grateful You send Martin

just at the right time

in that destined year of 2000

Happy Valentine’s Day 2011

my other half!
