I thought it proper to write a Valentine's entry. Since I'm hurrying to sleep cause I have a long day tomorrow, I'll make this short and sweet.


No flowers.
No chocolates.
No violins, or sunsets.

Just your hands massaging my tummy and backbone-- soothing the unbearable aches away. I whimpered, crying "Hindi ko 'to kaya...". You just kissed my tears, and whispered "I'm just here, by". I remembered the way my mom would painstakingly rub my body with a hot towel just to keep the fever chills away.

You kept at it for hours and lied by my side until I finally fell asleep.

I was blinded by so much pain that night, but there was that short moment, a fraction of a minute -- I saw myself with you for the rest of my life.
