Ang Boyfriend Ni Bunso

wrong-boyfriendIsang hapon sa bahay ni pareng Kulas
Mga anak na dalaga’y kinausap.
“Kumusta mga anak?” – kanyang bungad
Tatlong dalaga’y sabay-sabay nag-thumbs up.

Ang tatlong dalaga’y ating kilalanin
Ate sa magkakapatid ay si Lambing
Ang ditse’y  Ngiti kung kanilang tawagin
Bunso’t sanse ang palayaw nama’y Hinhin

“Nag-boyfriend na kami.” Wika ng panganay.
“Huwag ka pong magalit sa amin itay
Mga boyfriend namin mahal kaming tunay
Asahang kami’y nasa mabuting kamay.”

Dagdag ni Lambing – “BF ko’y makabayan.”
Tumango ang Kulas… mukhang nasiyahan.
Lalo na nang si Ngiti siya’y bulungan –
“Sweetheart ko po ’tay makapamilya naman.”

“Papa ko po’y maka-Diyos at madasalin!”
Taas noong sabi ng bunsong si Hinhin.
“Good job anak… s’ya ba’y kakilala namin?”
“Opo! Siya’y pari sa simbahan natin.

About HARDPEN

Teacher-Writer Hardpen is my nom de plume. My real name is Massuline Antonio Dupaya Ligaya. Many times I was asked the question, "Why do you write?" I don't write for rewards nor adulation. When I write poems, stories or essays, seeing them completed gives me immense joy and satisfaction. The happiness and sense of fulfillment I feel when completing my works are my rewards. When I teach, I don't work but I play. The classroom is my playground, the students are my playmates, and the subject is our toy. Proud to be me! Proud to be a FILIPINO! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
