On Sorrow Reunion...

on 7/11/2012
To my classmate, friend, lovely.. you will always be loved...

Farewell! a word that must be, and hath been - 
A sound which makes us linger; - yet - farewell!
-Lord Byron


In one of my siesta afternoon, I lay comfortably on our wooden sofa... 
mind wandering, neglectful body, eyes falling sluggishly, then at that moment before falling from a deep sleep you heard a "final fantasy battle theme song" 
my message alert tone and said to my self...

"maya ka na tulog muna.."

thinking it just a simple hi hello text, a quote maybe or something that goes, "uy musta na"
ignore it and let me fall asleep...

but reading the text... after taking a nap wakes me up on my full senses...


"guys lovely passed away"

lovely? the one who's good at algebra, geometry and trigonometry?
the one who's laugh are genuine and almost carefree?

another thing that  I remember, we both purposely fail the screening exam for a quiz bee event
epic and so high school

WTF happened???


Going to her last wake seems like a reunion... on both her elementary and us in high school
smiles everywhere, non-stop chit chat, catching up with one another's life, love and everything in between experiences... 
and there's our spot, as I went to them, as if nothing change... 
jokes still there, undying embarrassing moments and stories we did,
teachers we fool around, make face with, and mimic every move and mannerism they did
(the most terror one was the best to impersonate)

and words coming out like
"sa ingay naten saasmahan tayo ni lovely sa kwentuhan" (not only us but for hte elementary batch too)
"eto mkpag joke batukan ka ni lovely jan eh"
"lovely naman eh nauuna, sabay sabay naman tayo grumadauate"

but behind every stupid sentences and foolish acts
no one can hide in their own eyes...

tears falling from side, sudden silence, and the all time favorite got something in my eye
surely lovely placed a part in our life...
though we have our own sets of barkadas but our section was like a gum stuck in our arm chairs.. that's how tight our section was...

and as the final prayers were given, flowers being lay one by one by your friends family and loved ones...
then shit got serious...

tears...
tears that show you will be missed 
that you were loved 
that you were a good person
that you've touch someone's life

though your death may be from hardship, twist and turn of life's destiny, 
still you did your best and done nothing against God's will...

we will miss you and you may travel safely to God's hand

then pag nagkita kita ulet tayo at kompleto ano party party ulet at inuman pa?
di bale sa susunod na reunion, iiinom ka pa din namen...


-pong...

ps: susyal ka teh, kasabay mo pa si sir dolphy sa pagaakyat..

RIP sir dolphy,magging mkwela ang langit ngayon
isama mo pa sina babalu at iba mo pang ksamahan
tiyak laftrip ang mga anghel sa inyo
maging ang Diyos di mpipigilang ngumiti
sapagkat ipinagkaloob ang talentong swak para sayo

buong mundo nakikiramay sa pagkwala mo..
