(for Airene Calantina Benian)
By Apolinario Villalobos
For one who cries and laughs so easily
feelings are so easily revealed and…
to misunderstanding subjected,
but never do others know that…
such emotions are but highlights
of what are hidden inside the heart.
Such one may really exude warmth,
to loved ones… endearing, affectionate…
also, sweet and easily trusted,
that friendship with her –
will never be wasted.
