John Manalo is inspiring young couples with his precious heartfelt gift for girlfriend Erika Rabara.
The Goin' Bulilit alumnus was extra sweet when he greeted Erika a happy birthday on March 7 through Twitter.
John tweeted at 10:51 pm this message: "Happy birthday @erikarabara. Watch this when you wake up."
The tweet was accompanied by a two and a half-minute compilation video of the couple's travels together.
As the video plays, John could be heard expressing through a beautiful spoken word poetry how much he loves Erika.
Here are some of his most heart-tugging lines.
"Lagi kong tinatanong sa sarili ko, 'totoo ba ang tadhana?' Gusto ko lang malaman mo na hindi ako magsasawang sabihin sa'yo na mahal na mahal... na mahal na mahal kita."
"Hindi sapat ang mga letra, salita, taludtod, at malayang pagtutula para maipahayag ko ang nagpupugso, umaapaw, at nagliliyab na damdamin ko para sa'yo."
"Hinding-hindi ako mapipigilan ng namamaos kong boses sa pagsigaw sa daigdig na mahal kita."
"Erika, hindi ikaw ang mundo ko. At hindi rin ako ang mundo mo. Ngunit sabay nating lalakbayin ang landas nating dalawa. Mapatag man o malubak, hawak ko ang iyong kamay habangbuhay."
"Ako'y nahumaling sa'yo at nangako sa sarili kong hinding-hindi kita susukuan. Dahil ang katulad mo'y mistulang paraluman na pinaghihirapan."
"Inikot mo ang yugto ng aking buhay. Ang dating walang kulay, mistulang bahaghari na ngayon."
"Kaya ang sagot ko ay oo, naniniwala ako sa tadhana. Sa tadhanang nakatakda na sa bato na inukit ng Maykapal na tayong dalawa ang para sa isa't isa."
"Mahal na mahal kita, aking irog, Erika Cecilia Rabara. Happy birthday."
The video has been watched more than 227,000 times since it's been posted.
John's followers were so inspired by his gesture that some of them are even asking their own boyfriends to do the same for them.

Others simply praised John for being such a sweet boyfriend.
According to PUSH, John studied AB Communication Arts at the University of Sto. Tomas.
His girlfriend and internet sensation Erika Rabara will be taking up medical studies also in UST.
