“I Have Fallen In Love (With The Same Woman Three Times)” lyrics and video

As Filipinos around the world continue to mourn the death of former President Cory Aquino, let this blog pay tribute to the woman who served as a key to our freedom and democracy with the song that was made out of a poem that her beloved husband wrote. The poem, entitled “I Have Fallen In Love (With The Same Woman Three Times)”, was written by the late and former Senator Benigno Aquino Jr. for Cory Aquino at Fort Bonifacio on Oct. 11, 1973 for their 19th wedding anniversary. It was set to music by Jose Mari Chan who recorded it in 1989.

Thank you and have a safe trip home, Tita Cory!

Here’s the lyrics and a video from youtube:

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
She’s 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 and composed
She is God’s lovely maid
