But not...

by Maria Isabel Cecilia Pascual
(Manila, Philippines)


Thanks for being so kind and generous
Thanks for the affectionate pat and a hug
Thanks for the countless time spent with me


The rain may pour nonstop,drench you deep to bare bone
The cloud may turn dark, heavy and gloomy
But I am this inferior wind that could blow these, make these dreadful events disappear.


I can listen to all your woes and pain all day
I can be a blanket to you when you feel cold and bereft
But I can never be a carpet nor a doormat, I'm sorry

I may not be blessed with richness
Nor schooled like the royals
But I am a true friend and an equal


I can be everything if I so desire
Yes, I want to be your friend
But not... your pet.

Thank you Vimala...

Enjoying reading your book. I should have bought 3, one for the bedroom, living room and my car. Right now the book is in my car, I love to stay inside my car parked under the shade of an ancient oak tree while listening to light classical music and at the same time reading ur book. It's heaven!
