Opening of heavens gates,
one look at you,
led to my fate.
Took your tiny hand in mine,
you grabbed my heart,
clouding my mind.
Cushioned you from any scare,
missed once or twice,
but always cared.
Turned my love into despair,
was always there.
Twist of fate with links unshared.
mud on my face,
our bond impaired.
Ring my ears with screeching howls,
my voice a hymn,
you hear a growl.
Memories come to say good bye,
they comfort me,
under blue skies.
– Grace Y. Estevez-Reddy
