We are honored at ATRP to have Mariela Ticas as a regular contributor. For her birthday she wanted to share a heartfelt and beautiful poem. We hope that you help us wish her a very Happy Birthday and all the best for her next year!
For every tear I’ve cried,
There are a thousand more kisses and hugs from my mother’s heart
For every fit of rage,
There are thousands of tender moments that never age
For every star shining bright,
There are only two pair of eyes I look into
And see the world at night
For every spoken spiteful word,
There are countless more melodies that are heard
For every time I failed,
I saw greater strength unveiled
For every illness,
There is a cure that’s timeless
For every time
For all time
I was born to be
– Mariela Ticas
