Para kay Itay!

You may have thought I didn't see,
Or that I hadn't heard,
Life lessons that you taught to me,
But I got every word.

Perhaps you thought I missed it all,
And that we'd grow apart,
But Dad, I picked up everything,
It's written on my heart.

Without you, Dad, I wouldn't be
The man I am today;
You built a strong foundation
No one can take away.

I've grown up with your values,
And I'm very glad I did;
So here's to you, dear father,
From your forever grateful kid.

"Sa kandungan mo, mahihimbing ako
Sa kandungan mo, nasa 'yong lahat ang buhay ko
Sa bawat saglit ang 'yong pagmamahal
Ang pinadarama dito sa 'king mundo
At sa pagluha ko, yakap at haplos mo
Sa kandungan mo, payapa ang loob ko..."
-Carol Banawa, Sa Kandungan Mo
