I Miss You

Happy Valentines Day to my wife- Dita. We love and miss you so much.








When the nights are cold and my heart is lonely,
How I miss you.
When my body aches with pains
And I'm beset with so many problems,
How I miss you.

Life would be more tolerable
And problems would be more bearable
If we are two to share the burden
Instead of me alone.
I must admit, I weaken when you are
not by my side.
Oh how terribly do I miss you.

I miss the sweet little things that you do.
Your tenderness and the warmth of your caress,
I miss them so.
When the kids are sick and they silently
moan for you,
How terribly do we miss you.

Yes, you are the light that brightens our day.
Yes, yours is the smile that chased all
our troubles away.
Life is meaningless without you by
our side.
Oh how terribly do we miss you.

Hi Mel!
Reading your amazing post my heart was broken, I understand you.
And my heart was happy too that you and your great wife are far, but really very close.
True love have not borders.
I'd like to dedicate for your wife this words from Bible:

"Who can find a noble wife? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband trusts her completely. She gives him all the important things he needs...

Many women do noble things. But she is better than all the others....

Let everything she has done bring praise to her at the city gate".

Proverbs 31.

Have a good, happy and healthy day!

God bless you and your family!

Hi Elween,
No there's nothing wrong with our relationship. She just have to work in the US for our family. She's been there for one and a half years now doing odd jobs for us because her papers are not yet in order. On occasions such as Valentines, Christmas and New Year, we miss her so much because we are a very closely knit family. But all of us have to sacrifice for the sake of our family . Time will come when we will all be reunited by the grace of God. Thanks for your visit and comments. Happy Valentines Day to you too and God bless you and your family.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Preetilata,
You make such lovely poems too that mine looks very simple. Thanks for your very inspiring comments. I hope and pray that you will achieve all your secret dreams in life. You have a whole lifetime ahead of you my friend. Thanks again for your visit. Happy Valentines Day to you and God bless you and your family always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Mona,
Thanks for visiting my blog and for your sweet comments. I have already linked you with my blog and I hope you do the same with mine. I have long wanted to link with you but I lost your url and I could no longer locate your blog. Thanks God you found mine. I was really affected by your article on organs for sale and the investigation going on in India for those who engaged in this nefarious activities. Thanks again. God bless you and your family always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Jaggu,
Happy Valentines Day to you too. Thanks for your visit and your comments. God bless you and your family always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Tey,
It's okay. I always understand that you are busy. Happy Valentines Day to you again and may you succeed in everything you do. God bless you and your family my friend.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Ceedy,
We are opposites, he, he, he, *lol* You are working in the States and your family is in India while I am in the Philippines and my wife is working in the States. Well, that's life. We have to make our own sacrifices for our family. Thanks again for your visit and meaningful comments. God bless you and your family always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Krystyna,
Oh you made my heart leap with joy by your comments. Your Bible verse are so apt for her. She's truly a gem of a wife. I could probably search the whole world and not find another wife like her. We complement each other perfectly and we never consider what role we play in our family life so long as we survive and give our children the best we could for them. Thanks for your very inspiring comments my dear friend. I know you are also doing well yourself in the US. God bless you and your family always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Fingertalk,
Thanks for your visit and for your very kind words. I hope you are fine and in the best of health. I pray to the Lord that you will overcome all your trials in life. God bless you and your family always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Keshi,
Happy Valentines Day to you too Keshi. Thanks for your visit and greetings. God bless you and your family always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Mississippi Songbird,
Happy Valentines Day to you too my friend. Yes, I really miss her so but she has to stay in the US to do odd jobs because her papers are not yet in order. Probably, it will take quite a long time before we will all be reunited again as one family. Thanks for your visit and your inspiring comments. God bless you and your family always.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Sameera,
Thanks for your visit and for your encouraging comments my dear friend.
Before the month ends, I will be coming out with my second short story. This is vastly different from the first and maybe similar to your style of writing. Thanks again for your inspiring words. God bless you and your family always.

Sheilalu said...

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Christina said...

Did you made this poem? Wow this wonderful! May God Bless you and your family!

Wish the best for you and your wife on the hearts day!

heiresschild said...

what a beautiful couple you and your wife are Mel! and what a beautiful Valentine tribute to her. may the time be shortened until the family can all be together again.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Christina,
Yes, I made the poem. My wife is already one year and six months in the US doing odd jobs because her papers are not yet in order. That's the reason why we really miss her so. Our family is really closely knit but she has to go to the US to work and we all make sacrifices for that. But someday, by the grace of God, we will all be reunited again. Until then, we just rely on the grace of God to pull us through all kinds of trials. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all.

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Heiresschild,
Thank you very much. That's the least I could do for her for all the sacrifices she's undergoing in the US doing odd jobs for our family. Someday, her papers will be alright and she can work regularly and then petition our older son. Thanks for your visit and generous comments. God bless you and your family always.

Kimmie said...

Hi;

I am relieved to know your wife is away and hasn't gone to be with the Lord. I thought (as I have just started reading your blog) that maybe you lost her recently.

I am sorry that you are apart, may God strengthen both of your hearts and deepen your love for each other. May God's mighty hand draw you deeper in love with each other and with Him.

blessings to you;
Kimmie

ps- you have a beautiful family!

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Kimmie,
Thank you so much for your visit and for your very kind comments. I really appreciate your very kind words. God bless you more for that. I sure admire your lovely family. You are a closely knit one. God bless you and your family always.
