I Have Fallen In Love with the same Woman Three Times (video)

I have fallen in love/With the same woman three times
In a day spanning nineteen years/Of tearful joys and joyful tears.

I loved her first when she was young/Enchanting and vibrant, eternally new
She was brilliant, fragrant and cool/As the morning dew.

I fell in love with her the second time/When first she bore her child and mine
Always by my side, the source of my strength/Helping to turn the tide.

But there were candles to burn/The world was my concern
While our home was her domain/And the people were mine
While the children were hers to maintain.

So it was in those eighteen years and a day/Till I was detained
Forced in prison to stay.

Suddenly she’s our sole support/Source of comfort
Our wellspring of hope/On her shoulders fell the burden of life.

I fell in love again/With the same woman the third time
Looming from the battle/Her courage will never fade.

Amidst the hardships she has remained/Undaunted and unafraid
She is calm, composed/She is God’s lovely maid.

A long been hidden expression of love now revealed for the entire public to know how the late mother of democracy, President Cory Aquino has been truly loved and cared for.
