“Solo in Peach” – Paranaque, 30 May 2016

here’s to
faith
in the
things
we cannot
see;
here’s to
hope
for the
things
we yearn
for;
here’s to
love.

for brides
who blush,
for spinsters
who pray,
for lovers
who sigh,
for vixens
who prey:
roses
in full
bloom
to please
to appease
to inspire
to tease;
to spur
onward
to better
things
to greater
deeds.

here’s to
faith
in the
fulfillment
of one’s
dreams;
here’s to
hope
for the
success
of all
schemes;
here’s to
love.
