my foe and my friend,
i love your simplicity, your innocence,
and your silent velocity,
you cling to family,
your ancient traditions lost to many,
lost to the air, the sea and history,
strongly featured in your festivities
you come from near and far,
you find a reason to come home.
you revere God
the pulse for life,
in the stillness and the quietness
of your quaint island.
I come to my center, here I feel alive!
you, Bohol for the memories!
