"I Love You"

(Note: This is my English translation/version of my "Ilokano" poem with the same title that was originally published in in February 2006.)

" I Love You"

"I love you"
three words
(so timeless)
will never fade
relieving to hear
giving strength and courage
orderliness and tranquility
life and hope.

"I love you"
three words
(a panacea)
effective medicine
wiping out bad thoughts
removing pain and anxiety
hatred and tribulation
day and night.

"I love you"
three words
powerful weapon
the most beautiful words to utter
overcoming obstacles and fear
bitterness and jealousy
morning or afternoon.
