Darwin 2

WE ALL CRIED OUT
WHEN Tado took his last ride,
Leaving us with his eccentric humor and wit to bite…

WE ALL CRIED OUT
WHEN Ka ROMY fought his final battle to cancer,
Leaving all workers to muse in how to break their own shackles…

WE ALL CRIED OUT
WHEN Typhoon Yolanda hit the south,
Leaving thousands unprepared with the nature’s wrath…

WE ALL CRIED OUT
WHEN Jennifer Laude was strangled to death,
Leaving the LGBTs to demand for justice and respect…

WE ALL CRIED OUT
WHEN the SAF 44 was killed in a bungled operation,
Leaving the public to wonder who made such a stupid decision…

WE ALL CRIED OUT
WHEN injustices and abuses were committed everyday,
Leaving victims and their families nothing left to pray…

WHILE WE ALL CRIED OUT
THIS GUY makes us all see the brighter side of life,
Bringing laughter when hope seems to be out of sight…

WE ALL CRIED OUT AGAIN
AS his LAUGHTER finally runs dry,
Leaving us without even saying goodbye …

BUT NOT ALL is LEFT in VAIN
While we bid FAREWELL TO YOU, OUR DEAR FRIEND!
We will always REMEMBER you right up to the END.
