A perfect crime.
The paper the victim,
the weapon a pen.
A perfect time.
The thoughts in my head,
a prayer, I say, amen.
A perfect day.
The mood is right,
it is time to begin.
A perfect way.
So I write, Father please,
forgive me for my sin.
A perfect start.
The liquid poison,
slowly kills the page.
A perfect heart.
from all the rage.
A perfect death.
Please go in peace,
Your soul to keep.
A perfect breath.
For it's the last,
please don't weep.
"Daddy" the way I call my father
The man who loves my mother
The man who gave life to me
And the man who will risks his life to protect his family.
He's not showy about his feelings
But I know he loves us unconditionally
He gets angry when his siblings were hurt
And he makes us laugh the way he dances and tells us jokes
Now..he left us already
His silly jokes,crazy dance moves now were gone
Coz he went to a far away land
In a place where hurt and sorrow has no place in man
I miss my daddy a lot
His crazy dance moves
And his being father to us
I miss everything about him!
I know God has a plan
And I give everything into His merciful hand
Pls.take care ofmy daddy in heaven
Coz someday we'll see him again
And continue the sing and dance with him again...
The ones you love
Can make you laugh
The ones you love
Can make you cry
The ones you love
Can steal away
Ere you have the chance
To say goodbye
Rue not the missed chance
To have bid them farewell
To have given to them your love
Will have served
…Just as well…
I’m Physically and Emotionally tired
I don’t want to be the strong one anymore
I can’t this time
I don’t know what to do Daddy
I need your help down here
I can’t get back in control of my emotions
I’m having a hard time dealing with your absence
I’m having a hard time standing by myself
I need your help Daddy
I’m broken and lost without you Daddy
I need your will to want to carry on
I need your strength to over come this
I need your strength to stay standing
Your courage to fight back again
I need your help
Please Daddy I’m at a loss
How am I suppose to do this
I need your guidance
I need you to guide me back
To whom I was before
I need your help Daddy
I need your help

So long I needed to visit
but my heart didn't listen
Letting you know how much "I love you so"
is now something, you will never ever know
Now that you are gone
I know I waited to long
If I could just have that one more chance
I would never treat it as just another glance
Now, you have become my biggest memory
for you have gone, to a place I can not see
Knowing that we will never again touch
makes me miss you, so very much
My children are still to young
to wonder why pop hasn't rung
My heart is now empty
for you, it always had plenty
I really do need to have you back
you were the "only one, who saw me back
I know deep down inside
you love me, more than words could describe
For it is only now, that I realise why you didn't want me around
you knew how "painful it would have been, to watch you drown
But, as long as I am still alive
you too, will continue to survive
For I will always be your darling little Denise
who hopes, you forever rest in peace

Can’t tell you why I have no power to tell it in your face
It’s better off running than not participating in the race
My heart is breaking when I lie each day to my mother
I know she loves me but the road I will follow is another
Dad is trying to stay a man although he knows I’m dying
Never told me straight how many times he heard me crying
Tell them I’m sorry and I forgive all their bad decisions
Don’t want them to suffer a lifetime with guilty conscience
Remember me the way your heart or brain wants to
I’m the guilty one. It was always me and never was you
Slowly my feelings burn as I give a last but good bye smile
Please light up a candle for me every once in a while
Bring me a white rose so I know you are a good friend
A pray never does bad even if it’s late, I’m at the end
Sell or give away all my stuff but please don’t be mad
Better for me here than living long always so sad
Don’t watch in tears my room or the place where I slept
A simple bed and the four walls between which I was fed
I’m glad I destroyed all the pictures about myself
This way you can’t cry after taking them of the dusty shelf
I got stuck in the dark and it kept me a lifetime prisoner
My papers will remain as a memory or an explaining letter
Tonight I’m not going home, never forget I love you
There’s no answer for the big: why? It’s because I had to.
I find it strange coming home
and not seeing you this evening
I know I shall never see your eyes again
but I shall always feel their gaze
anytime thoughts of you come to my mind
I can still hear your pitiful moan
the first day I kept you in the kennel
Forgive me for not realizing
that a spirit like yours
was not meant to be caged
After you were set free
how different and alive you looked
jumping around in the yard
with those precise energetic leaps
So goodbye my little Gypsy
I shall never see you again
but you will always dwell
in that secret spot in my heart
Thank you for the beauty
you brought into my life
November 4, 2013
So eloquent the beauty absorbed around you;
You uplifted me by your sweet aroma.
Oh, I'm very sorry to say,
That day in May caused a breath to pay.
You stole my heart away
And cured my parading heartache;
Only if I'd known what would have brought that day,
Then I'd have hidden and gone another time.
I felt plagued and wanted to die;
As a lover would take a shot for you, I'd dodge infinity for you.
Yet only a stranger we both were,
I'm here writing this letter swollen with a million tears of heavy cries.
Maybe it could have been fate that we unofficially met;
A destiny resulting in both loss and gain.
A second's glance is certain to be the catch,
Since here I stand alone in the rain.
A passive reflection of sorrow illuminates from the scar;
My heart begins to beat slowly in rhythm with my eyes.
The ticking of the clock abruptly stops;
"I know you're up there," I finally whisper
Goodbye friend indeed
For I wish not to say this
Class has given the verdict
Coins have won the battle
Thus they say
Inferior is my clan
They say I am a gold digger
They called me a scavenger
They say rag is my skin
I tell you
I wish not to be an eminent of pauper
Fingers are not equal
All fruits don't ripen the same time
Partiality is your name.
How do you say good-bye
to someone who is not yet gone?
How do you hide the tears and sadness
to help them stay strong?
I do not know, I could not say.
I never expected this situation,
for it to happen this way.
I am sad, I do cry, so tell me
how do I say good-bye?
My friend a new world awaits
no hard ships, no pain.
Where the sky's are always sunny
no more dark clouds or rain.
Smiles, and laughter, angel's will be everywhere.
Maybe a few you know
will be waiting to see you there.
Will you do me a favor
as you roam the golden streets?
Can you find my grandpa,
and give him a hug for me?
I love you my friend truly
from my heart and soul.
I'll keep your memory with me
everywhere I go.
I'll drink a toast to you
everytime I fill my cup.
I'll wish on your star
I'm sure you will bring me good luck.
I will not tell you good-bye
just that I will see you soon.
Who knows I may be next,
so save this friend a litle room.
