Ninoy Aquino Falling In Love Three Times

Ninoy & Cory Aquino
Slain Senator Benigno S. Aquino, Jr. fell in love with the late Corazon Cojuangco three times. He fell in love with her for the first time when she was in her teenage years. The second time when she bore their child. And the third time when she morally, courageously and patriotically supporting Ninoy who was fighting for Filipino's freedom against the Marcos suppressive government for 20 years.

To gratefully acknowledge Cory's endearing love and care for him, Ninoy wrote a poem, "I Have Fallen in Love", for her. Read the poem and ponder about it:

"I have fallen in love
with the same woman three times;
In a day spanning 19 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 felt 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 and composed,
she is God’s lovely maid."
