R.S. Mallari

A Decade of Love and Friendship (Anniversary Poem)


She was barely a woman
Sweet sixteen, so innocent
Doesn’t know about the world
Much more my world
I was at the top of my game
She’s a good trophy to have
And so it began

The hunt was well-planned
Caught her with my bare hand
Unnoticed I was trapped myself
This canny girl just got me
Chained my heart with hers
That was the day when we promised
Forever

That was ten years ago,
It seems just like yesterday
When my heart was tamed
By the one I considered a prey
Now I’m contently holding on
To my most valuable catch
My friend, my lover, my wife

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.

Thanks Bing. She just sent me a message saying I said it all. In our vernacular sabi niya "sakto".

Bad thing, this our 3rd year anniversary miles apart.

that only shows how strong your marriage is. ;) it's all worth the sacrifice, friend. there's no distance that love cannot bridge.

This is so sweet, and doesn't it often happen that way? - that love catches us when we were looking for a good time?

Just came across this while doing some research and wanted to let you know I found it very inspirational. Just passed my 10th and I am going to a resort in the caribbean, so I am not complaining, but a poem like this would have gotten him major koodos.

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