I’m Just Here - I Care (For My Dearest Friend Mary Wismer) - Poem by Rommel Filoteo

How can I tell you what I'm feeling when sometimes,
I don't even understand your pain.
I wish things were perfectly wonderful for you,
But you’re going to have to work at it to make them that way.
I do believe you have so much to build on…
So many things to accomplish…
So many things to do…
Your memories and your love for family most of all.
I may not always understand why you possess these illnesses,
Or exactly how to make yourself stronger,
But I care enough to want you to try to find out.
When the world closes in and lies so heavily upon you,
I’m just here - I care.
When cancer is only brought you pain,
I’m just here - I care.
What cannot be, cannot be, but always,
I’m just here - I care.
Never be afraid to come to me my dearest friend
If you have need of the simplest thing!
Love of a family...
Care of a brother …
Comfort of a friend...
No matter what it is,
I’m just here - I care.


You are so dear to me Mary,

I will always pray to God everyday to bless you with everything you deserve...

Mahal kita kaibigan,

    Rommel thank you very much for this wonderful words and dedicated to me..I also wanted to let you know that I am here for you as well, as your friend, offering you my hand, my shoulder and my warm embrace, and trying to make you see all the good, honest things you can still find in this world. I want you to realize that the joy of living should be the most important thing, and that sorrows and setbacks are just temporary.And all of that I felt in here to you and to all my friend in PH who do cares so much about me....I was always made so welcome that I can only thank you for everything you did for me, And yet, no matter what words I use, I will never be able to express all the gratitude I feel in my heart. I thank you very very much for your care and love and your friendship...i will never forget this wonderful memories i have...tell the end of time. God bless you always. (Report)Reply

    My Mum passed away from cancer this morning... and the journey was always made more bearable by 'friends like you' that keep reaching out to others in shape and forms that are endless, unpredictable cushions of comfort that fold and fluff to whatever is needed... Blessings also Deana (Report)Reply

    Heartfelt and passionate, your words of consolation and devotion to Mary in her time of need are very moving. Your words 'I'm just here - I care' are so reassuring. To have someone to listen, to be there for you, makes all the difference when times are tough. I'm sure Mary will be touched by your words. Bless you both. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report)Reply
