Pinoy Greetings and Phrases!.. Use to be sooo BADUY!..

I use to hate it
As i consider it
Soooo baduy.

I do not even
Appreciated
"magandang umaga,
"hapon" or  "gabi!..

When somebody says
"gusto kita",
"kumusta",
"salamat,"
Or even "paalam."

It is not because
I do not want people
greeting me but
we are use to the
English greetings!..

But now,
I am so flattered
When those greetings and phrases
Are what people
use to say when they see me.

It feels good how
these people
across from where I am,
who have not thought
of my tiny country
of seven thousand, one hundred, seven islands before
are learning my language little by little
for them to make me feel
that my friendship,
good work performance,
and my presence
means a lot to them.

And when most of the time everyday,
as I wake up in the morning,
or before closing my eyes at night,
and every time I check my phone;
I can read
and
hear
"Mahal Kita!"..
Oh heaven!..
Heaven it is...
