R.S. Mallari

To the Lady I learned to Admire



like a flower you're a delight to the eyes
elegance you possess always radiates
even rivals that of the great sun light
higher than a mountain's summit
your personality extends far as the sky

may your life flow like that of the river
continue to touch lives along the way
soar like an eagle, valleys for you to conquer
do not compromise, explore, sail away
like a savannah, your potential is limitless

if I were Zeus, chaos will be in Olympus
as Hera will envy my favor upon you


Dedicated to Bessie Manalo on her Birthday.

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.

I love the very last line, that Hera will envy the lady. :) Bessie is indeed a lucky lady! :D

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