Treasure Island

Maria Trinidad Mahusay

A Friend

He was a cool stranger when I knew him,
A stranger that soon to be my friend in crime,
A friend that so good to me,
A good friend that always there for me through thick and thin.

He’s a guy with a pure heart,
A guy that every girl is dreaming to have,
But I’m not dreaming when I knew him and became my friend,
Because it wasn’t a fairytale when he offers his hand to be my friend.

Secrets are like dirty bitches cash,
I was hiding them in my deepest core of haste,
He came to my life,
He helped me to forget those secrets and learn to be happy as he is.

I was lost when I knew him,
Lost as a crazy person that lost the balance of life because of struggles,
And he got me good,
He listens to my problems and he helped me to overcome them with holding arms.

He is a friend that I’ll always to keep,
He is a friend that I’ll never forget,
A friend that so precious to me,
As precious as gold of a millionaire that forever keeps.

He is a friend who change me,
A friend that I’ll never thought to have,
A friend that for all those years when we were together
I never thought that he makes my life worth living for.

To know him and be his friend,
I have no more to ask to God.
He once a good friend of mine,
“Once” because he dead for almost four years from now.

He is a very special person of my life.
He is a dear friend who never doubted to help me.
If you have a friend like him,
Do you have the guts to forget about him?

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
