Focus on My Footprints

to my beloved friends during this season of remembering those who have gone ahead of us to the Afterlife i offer some lines from my long poem Mi Primero Adios (original in Filipino composed on December 29, 2006, translation into English published in September 2007) :

Accord value and attention not to my mortal remains

That are like clothing already put aside by Life.

Focus not on my hole-studded shoes with worn out soles;

Ponder instead the footprints left behind...
