An old painting of my Lolo on his wedding day
MARTIN PALINO 
August 16, 1920 - January 21, 1999


Langit sa gabing maligalig
ay walang ala-ala
ng naglahong saya.
Sa lansangan
nagkalat ang mga dahong lagas
at ang hangin
ay umiiyak.

Buhay na dati-rati'y makulay
ang siyang naaalala
sa aking pag-iisa.
Sa isipan 
ang kulay ay hindi mawala
bigyang buhay
ang gunita.

Gunita ni Pete Lacaba, halaw sa orihinal na awiting Memory ng musical na Cats




Today, I celebrate your freedom from this world;
your freedom to all the pains of your illnesses. 

Twelve years ago exactly this date.

But today I continue to mourn
the loss of a lolo;
a father;
a mentor;
a hero;
a playmate;
a friend.

Rest now my lolo. I will be just fine. I promise  



But you know it will take me a lifetime to stop me from 
missing you.
