Simply A Mother

a05102009 06460655m

Life threatening – this new life revealed,

beyond pain from a labored ordeal.

Love of a perfect little angel – face-to-face,

born from unconditional love and grace,

Leisure on heavenly pleasures intensify

bridging together swaying soft lullabies, 

Lifts up mornings of delightful sceneries,

both undulating and unending cries of melodies.

Lover waking up to the calls of  dear attention,

boldly enduring all sleepless exasperations.

Lady of the house, a true life’s passion,

beautiful joys of the sweetest inspiration.

Happy Mother’s Day to my mom Luvy Bernardino

I love you!

    I hope your site gets fixed soon! It would be interesting to see what kind of blog you have. Maybe we could organize a smaller get together of bloggers. Snow has a business venture, maybe we could look into that too.

    Your mother is a lucky woman to have raised such a fine poet. Happy Mother’s Day to her from me, too.

    Thanks Holly,

    First of all, I’d like to thank you for checking my JS-kit a few days back when Jan pointed it to you. While were at the JS-kit topic, I can’t seem to see my face on my comments to Jan. hmm… a glitch? :D Now my JS-kit is working really well, and it’s doing what it’s supposed to do. hehehe.

    I was watching a movie (Yes Man) when my mom sat beside me on the couch this evening (EST), I gave her my laptop with this post. She said thank you. Then, I showed all the comments it got. She blushed. :) he he he. She said something in our vernacular.

    “Anak ang lawak ng poem mo.” (Son, your poem is deep (although lawak literally means wide, but deep would have been a better word to use :D it’s just me talking)

    Thank you for the compliment. I am learning everyday from the poets I read online.

    And happy mother’s day!

    How odd – only on the comments you leave for Jan? Maybe he has written a snippet of code to block your face? (Just teasing! He would never do that.) I don’t remember how my face got there in the first place, but I usually use my OpenID to log on and leave comments via js-kit. Maybe it depends on how you log on? I see your face on your reply, above, so it’s not js-kit, per se.

    Hi, again, to your mom! (She looks like she could be your sister, in that picture! Here’s to young mothers, too – mine was only 19 years older than me.)

  21. Zorlone replied: (post author)

    It’s not that I’m that vain to want my face on the JS-kit apps I see, but, I think Jan deliberately did that! (Kidding!)

    You made me compute. LOL. My mom is 23 years older than I am. :) Thank you for the compliment, I’m sure my mom will be so happy to hear that!

    Hi Doc Z,
    Sorry to be so late in visiting. Wow! Your mother looks so young and beautiful. Was that one of her recent pictures? Hope she had a time of her life on Mother’s Day.

    Your poem is truly a great tribute to your mother. Any mother would treasure such a gift from a wonderful, thoughtful son like you.

    Very nice Mother’s Day Poem, I enjoyed reading it. The fact that you started each verse with the same 2 letters in each sentence was unique as well.
