I Remember You

Β 

’twas not so long ago
I came to know you
over exchange of
small talks and “hi” and “hello”
how long has it been?
I can’t even remember then
but I remember you in days
when I’ve run out of things to do
and my muse is in an ultimate unannounced break
I remember you over galleries of photographs
and stunning images of people, of nature,
of even the most insignificant photo
I remember you over wonderful thoughts
about life and motherhood
about living the daily extraordinarily
I remember you
and you reminded me of a
wonderful and brilliant poet, Helene
who’s soul have joined the rest of the lovely angels
and magnificent minds and thinkers
of writers and poets
who have gone ahead of us
in heaven
and so today
I am pretty sure
Helene is up there waving
and smiling as she warmly joins me
in saying “happy birthday, dear Sadje”
I remember you
always

written for Sadje in celebration of her 59th birthday

        Its ben really tough Nima.. with the pandemic and the recent typhoon in my home country… its heartbreaking… i am not (we are not) affected directly though but seeing and witnessing my fellow Filipinos go through another devastating event is really breaking my heart.

        Not meaning to detract from Helene but I don’t know any here who don’t make thoughtful comments Mich. Sometimes in a rush it might be brief but it’s always a warm friendly feeling here.
