This photo is about 13 years old already. Haha! I can’t believe I have known this guy for more than a decade already. A lot of things had happened (an understatement) and indeed we learned so much lessons along the way. Some of it we have to digest individually. It wasn’t an easy journey but now we are aiming to focus on the fact that destiny, fate or whatever you may call it, brought us together. For me, this has been the biggest and best surprise (as yet) and of course a blessing from God.
Today, is his birthday and I am deeply grateful to God. This human being taught me (and still continues to teach me) about love, second chances, maturity and unconditional love. Obviously, it’s not always rainbows and pixie dusts, it doesn’t work that way folks. We have been on rollercoasters of emotions (you have no idea) but at the end of the day, love wins. It will always prevail. God let us cross paths again for a reason and that reason (or those reasons) is/are still unfolding as the day go by. As Chris Martin says/sings, “Nobody said it was easy, no one ever said it would be this hard…”.
I wish him happiness and peace of mind for the years to come. As well as good health and safety in everything.
To my all-time favorite person, my (then) nightly wish, my summer, my favorite book, my answered prayer… HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
“Habang naglalakad sa lakbay ng buhay,
Ako ay tumingin sa mga tala upang humanap ng gabay.
Nawala, nalito at natakot na noon dahil sa pag-iisa at dilim,
Pero nandito at umaasang may liwanag pa rin.
Pinagpatuloy ang paglalakbay at muli kitang nasilayan,
Hindi inaasahan dahil inakalang nakasarado na ang pintuan
Ng pagmamahal na noo’y inaasam.
Nagliwanag ang mga tala na tila may pinahihiwatig sa atin
Ngayon ay hindi na maalis sa mga labi ang mga ngiti and tuwa
Sabay na tayong maglalakad aking mahal,
Kahit mawala, malito at matakot,
May liwanag ang aking puso sa kaalaman na ikaw ay nasa tabi ko,
Habang tayo ay maglalakad sa lakbay ng buhay.”
