These are videos of my nephews when they were still little. I can’t help but smile watching them again, but I also feel that gaping hole in my heart getting bigger as I long to be with them again before they grow too old for me to hug and kiss them the way I did when they were younger.
This is Gabby singing “Boom tarat tarat” (a novelty song in the Philippines popularized by a local TV host)
Here’s big brother Rafael with his version of “Boom tarat tarat”
This is both of them singing Spongebob Square pants
I want to watch them grow,
Like flowers in my garden
Dotingly planted in a row.
I want to hear their laughter,
As they scream with delight
And call my name in surrender.
I want to feel their arms around me,
While I smother them with kisses
Buried in my embrace so lovingly.
Blood of my blood,
Like their mother, my sister,
