A Man of His World

Monday, 22 June, 2009

Tsk. Long weekend is over and that concludes his birthday celebration. He’s 26 now, hope he won’t be like the grumpy old king of Neopets. LOL at my boyfriend.

I gave him my warmest greeting that midnight of June 20 together with the best gift from me. We’ve been cheesy lately and I love him more for that. I was on a sick leave by then and literally sick when I asked him what’s his birthday wish.

He just wanted to celebrate it with me and his cousin/bestfriend. As for the gift, there goes the cheesy part: “I don’t want you staying up and shopping a birthday gift for me. Just rest and get well soon, I won’t be happy to lose THE BEST GIFT I already have.”

We enjoyed each other’s company though it’s been a tough decision to just stay at home. I was tempted to join the tourney and we missed his barkada’s treat at Tagaytay Highlands.

Bad news seems to be inevitable, too.

Anyway, my man was able to handle the situation well and I admire him for that. Here’s the poem I’ve written for him when we’re just on the third month of our relationship.


The shell that envelops me cracks hastily
I gasp for my first breath
The breeze is soft with warmth
It relaxes me.
I am awed at the first sunshine
The light is bright and golden
It excites me.
This is the day I come to life.

But it isn’t my first day on earth
It is after a century of being a living dead
No breeze, no sunshine, almost no life, no nothing
Just sealed in a chest of emptiness, all alone.

I wish for the heaviest rain to join my tears
But only a tiny drizzle falls
I wish for the coldest wind to benumb my body
But only a soft breeze blows
Even nature has forsaken me, I think in dismay
But the storm puzzles me as I force my eyes to see
Yet the clearest answer also stands before me
And the throbbing of my heart sounds like I’m still alive

And yes I am! At last I come back to my senses
It’s not just a drizzle afterall, but his teardrops that fall
And its not just a breeze, but a blast blocked by his body
He comes for me and I come to life.

His eyes are my first sunshine- the brightest ever
His kiss is my first breath- so warm and tender
In his embrace I feel the world
In his presence I regain strength
In his shoulder I rest in comfort
In his heart I find a shelter
Nothing else do I wish for
Because life with him is like living forever.
