“Music was her life”

I remember when I was in highschool

I met this woman who was so cool

She loved music, she played the piano

She encouraged me , she taught me too

Years had passed, her sickness had gotten

worse

She had a lung cancer , she was a bedridden

for her it was a curse

When we met I brought a keyboard with me

Her eyes were in gleam from  ecstasy

When she placed her hands on the piano keys 

She then started humming like bees

She was playing it  with full emotion

Seemed all her sufferings were gone

That day music brought her in the past

Cast away her bad dreams with aghast

Night came she asked me, 

Do you like to play?

I responded ,” I don’t know how Tita Weng”

Days went by she did not waste her time

She tried her very best for me to play fine

Yes I finally learned from her patience 

She lived her life with full of essence

I reached in college, one day l I bought her

roses

She was laying on her bed , but did not want

To take a rest

She did not want to eat , nor take her

medicine

But she allowed me to do all these 

for she knew I was so concerned

I did not know that night was her last night

I stayed with her , and played the piano

with her sight

Her last words ” Thank you for taking care 

of me like my own child”

Please tell my daughter  ” I love her too,

& all my life  I wished to be here by my side, like you do.

I called her Tita Weng , her name was Rowena in real life. When I met her in their humbled home she had terminal lung cancer. She did not get a chance to  spend time with her daughter ( It was a long story) 

Music she said made her live longer than she thought.  I will never forget the skills she taught me. As long as I can play she will still live within me. I love you Tita Weng, Happy Mother’s day in Heaven

“Tomorrow may never come”

Early morning I walked by the shore

Sat and was waiting for the sun that I adore

Suddenly a woman with head covering

appeared

She approached me and I was 

thrilled

She then asked me ” are you waiting

for the sunrise”

I then said ” yes ma’am this will be my

Third time. 

She said ” I noticed you were here 

almost every day”

I responded yes ma’am I’ve seen you

This early too one day.

I asked her , ma’am how are you 

feeling about seeing the sunrise today?

She said “excited, because 

tomorrow it may never come”

I have cancer, I have few months or a year

to live

I want to spend my time enjoying 

the beautiful sun…

I paused for a moment , my heart

was broken

I felt her ,my  eyes in tears were sunken

She then said ” Dear you have

a kind heart, but please don’t 

feel pity on me.

I want you to tell stories so

Stay a moment with me.

I showed her the photos of the sun

I took

Nothing couldn’t be happier as the 

Way she looked.

She taught me to enjoy the present

which is Now

Life is not a promise , We all

Going to be there somehow

This was my conversation to a person I met at the beach years ago. 

	

“Beautify”

Click to the left , click to the right

Let myself be beautiful to their sight

Oh I look like Eighteen 

I see my flawless skin

Oh my jaws and arms are wide

Here clicking the  shrinking side

Oops what about parts that sag

Here’s the  enhancing guide

Let my friends see my beauty

This is how I want myself to be

I want to look different

Likes👍 I gain will be more than ten

It  promises to deliver modelesque look

Making us look somehow like youth

Ain’t it the coolest thing ever

I appear perfect no one would wonder

I have coolest friends I’ve never seen

They see me as their beautiful queen

For them I forever look like teen

Yet it’s only through their phone screen

Being praised makes me happy

But then I’m afraid to show up myself

Shall I keep this augmented reality

Or embrace all flaws that I have ?

I want to be accepted without 

changing things

I want to be loved the way I am

But the filter makes my image stunning!

It’s gives them  a dash of glam

But it’s not me , “the real me”

I live my life in twisted reality

I want to show this heart within me

A beautiful person despite of

adversities
