It’s been four years since we said goodbye.
You went abroad to take care of two kids as old as Kuya and I.
I counted the days, weeks, months, and years.
Each passing time, my longing for you swelled through my tears.
Romantics say love is a yearning for someone, an insatiable longing to care. Intellectuals explain it as a function of the brain, the master of all emotions. And while poets and songwriters wax lyrical about this “most wondrous feeling of all,” love story movies take at least two hours to show that love is truly “a many splendored thing.”
It has been said that the brain is a most outstanding organ. (It manages most of your bodies' activities and processes information received from both outside and inside the body and is the very seat of our emotions and cognitive abilities, including thought, long- and short-term memory, and decision-making.)
