Two years ago today, I gave birth to our first baby whom we named Pippo Matthew Mabalay Techo. He’s now an angel in heaven, well cared for by God. I wrote the poem below to reminisce, and at the same time, declare our undying love for our son.
Our Little Angel
By: Edelweiza Mabalay-Techo
God gave you to us, but only for a very short time
Just four sweet hours, baby, and we’ve always wondered why
We still don’t know the reasons, we still don’t want to find out
All we know is that, you were and will always be our biggest blessing.
We never asked for you, but you came into our lives
Life is really full of surprises!
We welcomed you with open arms,
And you filled our hearts with overflowing love.
