What Do You Miss?

I miss hugging the people that are close to me. Right now, we have to keep our distance.

Even a simple high five has to be avoided.

Once normalcy returns, would you please give me a hug?

Hello earthlings! How’s quarantine (For those placed on quarantine)? Here in Cebu, Philippines, we are now on Enhanced Community Quarantine. Good thing I still get to work from home so I don’t have to worry about going to and from work.

How are things where you are? What do you miss?

Stuck Together

Let’s get stuck together from afar

Let’s do our morning routine a bit differently

Let’s stay indoors and enjoy the moment

Let’s do our part to keep each other safe

While Waiting

The waiting was always fine for me

Always manageable

Always thinking it’s all just routine.

But it got me thinking,

“What if one of these days it wouldn’t be routine?

What if all this waiting will cease?”

I wondered this as I sat there

Waiting, like I often do

I often accompany my mom on her check ups. It’s all routine now as it’s been almost 13 years since she was diagnosed. It just got me thinking earlier though that there may come a time when the results would lead to bad news and I wondered what and how I’d react.

Plus

Not like any other day because this only comes once every four years.

Something extra for you today

What will it be?

An extra donut, an extra beer

An extra hug for every tear.

An extra ounce of confidence, maybe

Or some extra fries at Jollibee.

However you want to spend it,

May you enjoy each moment.

Yes, I included Jollibee right there. I’m Filipino, it’s pretty much a given 😁

Half Moon

The half moon was shining bright yellow like a golden smile on the night sky.

I smiled inwardly, as the moon often does that to me.

Though not as bright as the moon that’s full,

The half moon still lighted the way for me.

I’ve always been in love with the moon

And it often reminds me that some changes can be beautiful.
