Manong and his wife Cristy.
 All for one and one for all
My brother and my friend
What fun we have
The time we share
Brothers 'til the end.

I was looking for perfect words to greet my brother who is celebrating his birthday today then I came across with these lines. I thought it's perfect. Not that this quote describes the kind of brotherhood I have with him nonetheless part of it may deliberately illustrate how are we as brothers and how I consider him as an elder brother.  

He is not the perfect brother I should say. I cannot even call him as a friend maybe because he was way older than me. When I was a kid, I seldom see him in the house because he was out there helping my father in the farm. So when he comes home, I'd rather stay from a distance or else I'd be a recipient of his iron hands  due to short temper because of a long hard day of work.

 The thing he doesn't know  about is that I look up to him in many ways. Despite all odds, he has earned his way to a better life for him and for his wife. His diligence and his industry have paid him enough to augment the quality of his living on his own ingenuity. That is something I admire and I'm proud of about him.

Without  second thoughts, the quote  is perfect after all to pay my little tribute for him on his birthday.

All for one and one for all
My brother and my friend
What fun we have
The time we share
Brothers 'til the end.

Happy Birthday Manong Corsino!

  1. How I wish your brother would have the chance to read this piece. A heart-rending, tear-jerking piece, I should say. :)

  2. It's really very complicated in this full of activity life to listen news on TV, therefore I just use world wide web for that reason, and take the most up-to-date information.
