On this special day, I want to post a poem written by my high school classmate, Rene San Andres for his wife. Rene has been working in Saudi Arabia for 8 years. The distance between him and his family inspires Rene to write poems, anecdotes and other literary works to lessen the pain and loneliness of being away from home. The heartfelt feelings that he can’t express personally to his loved ones are conveyed through his works.
In recognition of his courage, love, wisdom and aspirations, I would like to share this poem to you, readers on this special day.
Happy Valentines’, my dear.
It’s the day of the hearts deeply in love..
My wife greeted me this morning
and of course, I returned the favor by making a call..
Gosh, too many occasions that I let go off..
Birthdays, anniversaries and this special love day…
But I always have thing to say..
Love doesn’t come only in one day..
Love shouldn’t be expressed only in one day..
But thru all the days made from sunlight to sundown..
Love doesn’t have to be expressed for only
those dear to us..
But for all, as the Lord love all men.
It’s the day of the hearts…
And you can take my heart in exchange for love..
I will love you for as long as I live.
