Kyro My Boy



First day of December
I clearly remember
It was dawn I recall
This firmed loud call
Honey, He is coming!
Swiftly I came running

Few minutes later
Tightly holding her
Tending while on transit
I was holding my breathe
Unconsciously praying
My wife helplessly laying

An hour passed like a year
She was still in labour
My honey was in pain
Almost made me insane
Another such long hour
It seems like forever

Then she was taken
Room at corridor's end
I was walking like hell
She's fine, no one can tell
Worried, almost kneeling
I ended up smoking

Minutes more I waited
By her mom I was hailed
Room filled with cry I heard
Heavenly sound descended
My wife with so much joy
Beside her was my boy

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

Sherry He will be 4 years old this December, I could say that he is the most charming kid and very sensitive little guy, maybe he has got the most of me...a poet. He composes his own songs humming lines spontaneously.

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
