“Not everything is supposed to become something beautiful and long-lasting. Sometime, people come into your life to show you what is right and what is wrong; to show you who you can be, to teach you to love yourself, to make you feel better for a little while, or to just be someone to walk with at night and spill your life to. Not everyone is going to stay forever, and we still have to keep going on and thank them for what they’ve given us.” – Emery Allen
In life, you will realize that there is a purpose for everyone you meet; we don’t meet people just by accident, we meet them at certain point of our lives and they serve a certain purpose in our overall well being- they teach us important life lessons. Especially when it comes to relationships. Life isn’t a fairy tale that starts with ‘Once upon a time’ and ends with a ‘Happily Ever After’. Unlike what we commonly see in fairy tales and movies, life isn’t predictable because you don’t know what’s in store for you; what you can do is go with the flow and learn to embrace and appreciate every little thing and lessons that comes your way.

The Purple headband
She was the girl on the purple headband
The day I’ll never forget.
She made everyone turn their heads
Surprised we even met.
That time your with me on that room’s isle
My hearts filled up with fret
It started with that crippling smile,
And the first move I wont regret
On the first look, I melted with desire
Ideas on getting hooked,
curves hotter than fire,
Nervous about getting cooked,
U made me feel that I’m retired,
Chills on my body that I couldn’t move
Such events that transpired
If I’m the dance your d groove
After months of courtship,
and awful lot of competition
August 22, 2009 u chose me,
And that’s when we started our mission
Road to forever right?
Futures so bright
Forevers on sight
Proved all doubters wrong by our passion
If love is a drug,
then loving you is my favorite addiction.
We’ve been through up and downs
U turned this boy into a man
Companion through smiles and frowns
With that peevishness I couldn’t withstand
Endless fights, sleepless nights, million tears already shed
We stayed strong, going strong
Always able to bring our love back from the dead
But then the time has come,
The heat started to deteriorate,
Nights came that I always pray
Hoping that “forever” drive will continue to accelerate,
We both had done our best
But we are above the limit of the pain we can accumulate,
We tried to make things up,
But we’re both afraid its already too late
I already felt the fear I’ve been hiding for quite long time,
I had that “BreakUPhobia” symptoms,
Fear that I will lose my other half any time soon,
Afraid that this time I’m not going to be her favorite person,
Dying everyday inside,
knowing its going to be much better without me as her companion,
Tears fall at night scared that its time to abort the “forever” mission
Life loses its meaning, limitless sadness,
Everyday mourning asking myself, what the fuck just happened
Realizing that I just lost my heartbeat, left sanity for madness
it happened, that’s it
I lost my light, trapped in darkness.
I know we need to move on,
I tried to find myself,
You already passed the mark.
I saw myself at the edge of the ledge,
You already got that spark.
I learned to swim on the sea of regrets,
Found my torch at the dark,
Overcomed that excruciating stress
Now u have your family,
While I’m still trying to find mine,
I wish nothing but the best for you
We’re past our relationships’ prime,
Thanks for helping me grow, motivating me everyday to grind.
Oh such wonderful memories to keep,
No time wasted, just treasured time.
Happy of what you’ve become,
Proud that I became part.
Sad that it is done,
Still happy twas fun
Thank you for the adventure,
All of the traded puns
My journey to have family has just begun,
Thank you we had a good run.
Thanks for the years,
we had a good run
Sorry for the tears,
A poem of closure from a man
Now’s everything clear
Final goodbye to that purple headband,
I MAY NOT BE YOUR FOREVER,
BUT A FOREVER “NINONG” TO YOUR SON
