An Ode to Tita Elvie


Your sinampalukang manok was the best
When I came back, you were there, I was blessed
Your smiling face and kind words supreme
The world around you seemed to gleam
Your sense of humour always there
Your sense of family beyond compare
Your generosity and sense of compassion
You made sure everyone was having fun
How come the good ones were the first to go?
We’ll always remember you, our charming aunt
