Pasko Ng OFW


'Saking paglalakbay sa mundo ng buhay
At dito napadpad sa gitnang silangan
Mga samut-sari ang naging karanasan
Sa landas na tahak walang katiyakan

Naging kasapi kung tawagin OFW
At kabilang sa grupong mga Pilipino
Lahat nagbigay sa munting salo-salo
At para madama ang diwa ng pasko

Masaya 'pagkat lahat ay sama-sama
May pictures sa FB para sa pamilya
Mga ngiting naghalong lungkot at ligaya
Na bawat damdamin ay nangungulila

Ngunit ang wala'y karoling ng mga bata
Mga tinig likas na tunay't kakatuwa
Mga parol iba't-ibang hugis at kulay
At christmas lights na sadyang kaaya aya

Sa bawat sandali sa gitnang silangan
Pangarap na lang ang kumpletong pamilya
At naghihintay na mga mahal sa buhay
Ang tanging saya sa puso't alaala.'

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
