Treasure Island


(11/07/1975 / Natonin, Mountain Province, Philippines)



Melvin Banggollay

D-engue, a sickness that made me sick

for 2 child of mine tasted its painful stick

sipping me lot of sleepless night as I fight

nightmare of losing any of them upon my sight.

Entwined with a prayerful heart, I seek

God's mercy while kneeling as I speak

words of prayer for God to share its light

of healing to lift my children of their plight.

Never these medicine could heal their sickness

If You won't share thy healing grace and holiness

I said to the Lord as I seek His mercy out of sight

to help my children to arise and see the morning's light

God heard my prayers for just after a few days

My children are already out of danger's face

so the doctor allowed us to be discharged

from a week confinement at the hospital's charge.

Until now my children are still recovering

from this stupid mosquitoes bite and sting

that can put anyone's life into danger's den

if no necessary precautions be undertaken.

Empowered awareness is really needed to keep

clean and healthy surrounding can help to keep

away dengue mosquitoes haven as we sleep

and can prevent them joining in our life's ship.
