By Merry Ann Mundo

I am so glad that I met someone like you,

Someone who doesn’t leave me when I am in my low;

In a short span of time we became a sweet friend so,

I fall for you without even any clue.

My world totally changed when you came into my life,

You serve as my inspiration, to aim high and achieve the right,

In my downs, you are always there as my light

Encouraging me to struggle, stand up and fight.

But suddenly you became different

That causes my heart to tremble a little bit

Have I done something wrong?

That made you mad and just left me alone.

My whole world was terribly ruined, by just a glimpse of an eye,

So hurt that can’t do anything but to cry;

Feeling so weak, seems every minute is my last breath,

Even every single day to me, became a big threat.

Now that your gone, don’t know how and where to start

O’ sweet God, please heal this broken heart

Co’z I don’t really want that we’ll be apart,

I know it’s too late, but I miss my dear sweetheart.

I can’t help myself but to give up

Oh dear, still hoping but I know I need to stop

Moving on is so hard for me to start

But I know I can do this co’z I have this-BRAVEHEART.


If I really wanted to be happy, I would……

Trust in the goodness of others.

-From the book ‘If I really wanted to be happy, I would…’ published by Lighthouse Books in 2002-

“Trust men and they will be true to you; treat them greatly and they will show themselves great.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson—

Wag Mo Sana Akong Bitawan

Ni Cheryn Mariz Natividad

Isip ko’y lumilipad sa himpapawid

Na tila ba napakalalim ng nais mabatid

Di ko alam kung bakit

Basta’t ang nais ko’y matulala sa gilid.

Ikaw! Ikaw nga ang nasa isip

Di rin mawari kung ano ang nais alamin

Tumingin sa langit at humiling sa Poong Maykapal

Na sana’y hipuin ang aking puso’t isipan ng sa gayo’y ma-tumbok ang kasagutan.

Nais kong tumakbo ng tumakbo sa kawalan

Upang nadarama’y mawaglit saglit sa isipan

Nais kong humalakhak at ngumiti sa sambayanan

Upang pagkalungkot ng mga mata ko’y matakpan kahit san-dali man.

Hilingin ko man na ako’y iyong iwan

Wag mo sana akong bitawan

Pagkat ang isip ko’y gulong-gulo lang

Alam ko sa puso ko tanging ikaw lang ang nanaising maka-sama magpakailan pa man.
