Butterfly Kisses...


Araw-araw ang inaabangan ko palagi ay ang uwian, hindi sa may gimik ako sa gabi pero iba kapag dumating na ang 4:30pm (uwian ng government employees), nagmamadali na kami ni winnie (my wife) umuwi sa bahay sa Pampanga, araw-araw kaming umuuwi sa Pampanga. Ok lang naman kse mabilis na ang byahe sa north at nasanay na rin akong magbyahe ng ganun. Isa’t kalahating oras nasa bahay na kami, mas mabilis pa kaming nakakarating sa mga umuuwi sa Cubao dahil sa sobrang traffic sa loob ng Maynila. Yun nga lang talo sa pamasahe lalo na kung nagdadala ako ng sasakyan, ang taas na ng gasolina triple pa ang taas ng toll fee (salamat NLEX sa regalong bigay ninyo sa mga kawawang Pilipino!).



Ang mahalaga sa amin kaya kami umuuwi ng bahay kahit araw-araw ay dahil lang sa anak namin na si MACY. Tama pala ang sinasabi ng ibang magulang na kahit pagod ka sa trabaho at sa byahe, nawawala lahat kapag sinalubong, niyakap at hinalikan ka na ng iyong anak. 3 years old na ngayon si Macy, at habang mabilis syang lumalaki, marami na rin syang natutunan at minsan nga nagugulat kami na kahit yung mga bagay na di naman namin itinuturo sa kanya ay alam nya, madali syang turuan sa pagsusulat, pagd-drawing, pagsayaw at lalo na sa pagkanta (kanino pa kaya magmamana? ), maririnig mo na lang na sinasabayan nya mga kanta sa radio at sa tv, ang paborito nya ngayong kantahin ay “Get Me” na kanta ng MYMP, marunong na din syang mag-videoke at paborito lagi nyang kantahin ay Tomorrow (from the movie Annie), ang nagturo sa kanya ng kantang yun ay si Mommy Tita nya (ate Lee- my sis), kinakanta pa rin nya ang mga dati nyang alam na kanta tulad ng Twinkle, Twinkle, ABC, Happy Birthday (Madagascar version) at lahat ng kanta sa Barney and friends, Blues Clues at Dora the Explorer, pati nga yung mga di namin alam na mga bagong kanta ay naririnig na lang namin na kinakanta nya. Natutuwa na lang kami pag nagkwento na sya ng mga ginawa nya sa buong araw, kahit bulol ay pinipilit nyang i-kwento sa min. kung maririnig mo syang magsalita ay baka maloko ka sa pag-intindi ng mga sinasabi nya pero kami alam namin lahat ng gusto nyang sabihin, tama nga ang sinasabi ng iba na ang magulang lang ang mas nakakaintindi sa kanilang anak. Sa gabi bago sya matulog di nya nakakalimutan na mag-pray ng Angel of God kasabay ng mommy nya (kahit bulol sa pagsasalita natatapos nya to), at sya pa nagre-remind sa mommy nya na mag-pray na sila. Pagkatapos nya mag-pray mag-goodnight kiss na sya sa min....

Iniisip ko na lang minsan sana wag muna lumaki si Macy para kasama lagi namin sya, dadating kse ang oras na paglaki nya siguradong papasok na sya sa school, magkakaron maraming kaibigan, magkaka-boyfriend, mag-t-trabaho at mag-aasawa at iiwan nya na kami para sya naman ang magkakaron ng sariling pamilya....ganyan siguro talaga ang buhay.. Tuwing iniisip ko si Macy, laging naiisip ko rin ang kantang Butterfly Kisses....

I was driving from Manila to Batangas when I first heard the song Butterfly Kisses as a father of a beautiful daughter the tears rolled down my cheers in a way that no other song has. Every time I hear Butterfly Kisses my heart beats a little faster and it reminds of how lucky I am to have a beautiful little girl like Macy. I also take every little kiss that she gives me and keep it my heart.

Butterfly Kisses is a song about a father's love for his daughter. As it goes through the stages of his daughter's life, it shows that even when she is a teenager and the line goes, "I still love you daddy but I'm only gonna kiss you on the cheek this time" how she still has an unconditional love for him. The piano is beautiful and I simply love the sounds of hirls and boys laughing on the playground in the beginning. All the words are beautiful in Butterfly Kisses.


BUTTERFLY KISSES
by Bob Carlisle

 
There's two things I know for sure.
She was sent here from heaven, 
and she's daddy's little girl.
As I drop to my knees by her bed at night,
she talks to Jesus, and I close my eyes.
And I thank God for all of the joy in my life,
oh but most of all, for...
 
Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer.
Stickin' little white flowers all up in her hair.
"Walk beside the pony daddy, it's my first ride."
"I know the cake looks funny, daddy, but I sure tried."
Oh, with all that I've done wrong,
I must have done something right
To deserve a hug every morning,  
And butterfly kisses at night.
 
Sweet sixteen today,
She's looking like her momma a little more everyday.
One part woman, the other part girl.
To perfume and makeup, from ribbons and curls.
Trying her wings out in a great big world. 
But I remember...
Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer.
Stickin' little white flowers all up in her hair.
"You know how much I love you daddy, 
But if you don't mind,
I'm only going to kiss you on the cheek this time."
With all that I've done wrong
I must have done something right.
To deserve her love every morning,
And butterfly kisses at night.
All the precious time.
Like the wind, the years go by
Precious butterfly.
Spread your wings and fly
She'll change her name today.
She'll make a promise, and I'll give her away.
Standing in the bride room just staring at her,
She asked me what I'm thinking, and I said "I'm not sure,
I just feel like I'm losing my baby girl."
Then she leaned over....an gave me....
Butterfly kisses, with her mama there
Sticking little flowers all up in her hair
"Walk me down the aisle, daddy, it's just about time"
"Does my wedding gown look pretty, daddy?"
"Daddy, don't cry."
With all that I've done wrong,
I must have done  something right
To deserve her love every morning,  
And butterfly kisses
I couldn't ask God for more, man, this is what love is
I know I've gotta let her go, but I'll always remember
Every hug in the morning, and butterfly kisses at night...

Lord, thank you for giving us a lovely daughter.....
we love you Macy.

Blogs have been known to comment on a variety of issues, ranging from the latest "Here is what I think" type of blog to the latest big movie release to the newest computer on the market. Your blog is very topic specific and should do very well. Keep up the good work.

Also, you might want to look at two very important, topic-specific blogs for some ideas. MediaNews (www.poynter.org/medianews) and (www.iwantmedia.com). First started in 1999 as independent sites. Romenesko's site is particularly interesting for being a must read for media insiders, often creating a hot debate throughout the journalism community, because of its unique combining of news and rumors.

That's nice Totoy. It left a tear in my eye. I really like that song too. I know how you feel about wishing our children could stay young, so innocent, and loving. Cherish each moment, take advantage of the unconditional love they offer and don't worry, I know that even they're all grown up, they'll still give us those butterfly kisses :)
