Carolina – A Tribute to my Aunt

Tia Carol

Carolina, my aunt in heaven
She was born in Marinduque
An island in the South China Sea
The first among eight or so siblings
Some of them died before birth
It was a tough time in those days
Her parents had them all raised
Carolina was a beautiful lady
Both inside and outside
Very responsible big sister
Their question she had answer
Looked after her siblings
Was loyal to her parents
She won’t utter any grunts
The first doctor in the family
Everyone proud of her
Married a doctor, too
Made life together
And they lived in Albay
Had five children
Now all married
Lots of grandchildren
Who still remember her
Carolina, my aunt in heaven
