this is happiness

I could not be happier. This afternoon, I woke up to an unexpected message from my best friend. She was asking me for a meet up and, of course, I was simply more than willing. We have not met for more than a month now and I just have so much to tell her.

We decided to have dinner at Jollibee, our favorite spot. She was already there when I arrived, clad on a long sleeved blouse and with that black bag I have never yet. Well, it was just the same old menu: crispy fried chicken and spaghetti in thick sauce. Then there were exchange of stories about each one of us, the rumors that seem to be part of us, and then some plans for our next meet ups. We usually plan to see each other again the next day or two or the coming weekend; albeit some plans rather end up as plans and never really happen due to some reasons.

Just the same, I am thankful. I could not be happier. I feel complete once again.

Childhood

“Have you seen my Childhood?
I’m searching for the world that I
come from
’Cause I’ve been looking around
In the lost and found of my heart …
No one understands me
They view it as such strange eccentricities …
’Cause I keep kidding around
Like a child, but pardon me
People say I’m not okay
’Cause I love such elementary things …
It’s been my fate to compensate, for the
Childhood
I’ve never known

Have you seen my Childhood?
I’m searching for that wonder in my youth
Like pirates and adventurous dreams,
Of conquest and kings on the throne...

Before you judge me, try hard to love me,
Look within your heart then ask,
Have you seen my Childhood?

People say I’m strange that way
’Cause I love such elementary things,
It’s been my fate to compensate,
for the Childhood I’ve never known...

Have you seen my Childhood?
I’m searching for that wonder in my youth
Like fantastical stories to share
The dreams I would dare, watch me fly …

Before you judge me, try hard to love me.
The painful youth I’ve had

Have you seen my Childhood?”
