Flowers from you

receiving flowers when we moved
lovely coming from you my dear
when you’re not here they brought me cheer
with boxes the place has improved

we may not be together
but that’s fine
I can deal with that
perhaps it’s for the best
we’ve tried other means
might work this time

when we were together you just disappear
the blue-grey stone are clad in grooved
for the best when we’re both removed
alone and think of yesteryear

time has come
when we need to part
for both of us to grow
and appreciate what we had
starting new
new house, new friends

hindi kita malilimutan
kahit ano pa man*

  • I’ll never forget you
    whatever happens

* The La’libertas, a 22-line (4/6/4/6/2) poetic form created by Laura Lamarca. The stanza rules are as follows:

How the La’libertas for got its name is from the word “libertas” which is Latin for “liberty” and “La” is Laura Lamarca’s signature.
