Para kay Kuya Pepe

leave a comment »

Meron akong kakilala
siya’y tunay na maginoo
mabait, guwapo, dakila,
at ubod pa ng talino.

Siguradong sigurado
ako, sasang-ayon kayo
kung sasabihin ko sa ‘nyo
sya’y kaaya-ayang tao.

Masarap siya kung magluto
fabada, paella, bacalao
pollos, pescados, mariscos
lagi na lang busog ang tyan ko.

Siya’y laging handang tumulong
makinig, magbigay payo
tuwing kami ay lumalapit
nagatubilin magkuwento.

Siguro alam ninyo na kung
sino ang tinutukoy ko
walang iba kung hindi
si Pepe, ang bida sa gabing ito!

Binabati ka namin
ng maligayang araw.
Nagpapasalamat kami
Ika’y naging bahagi ng aming buhay…

Nagmamahal,

Matthew at Jojang Aguas

Kuya Pepe Lugay is Jojang’s first cousin, and our Godfather. He passed away yesterday, October 24, 2010.  She wrote this to honor him when he celebrated his 80th birthday last August 25, 2008. Kuya Pepe is a good man. He is so endeared and respected amongst his colleagues and relatives. We will surely miss him.
