she's rose, she rose...


I witnessed someone shedding tears for a dear departed. 

I asked myself, why do we do that? 
(I do that all the time and I regret it specially when 
I'm with others who are obviously living and 
continuously battling the tides of life) . 
Later that day, I was given a sad news 
of another young friend's passing. Heart attack at 29... 
To remove my mind from possibly condemning such weakness, 
I thought of paying tribute to someone still alive. 
So she'd be able to read my thoughts about her instead of saving it 
for some time else :)



Ms.Rose, thank you for your 14 years 
of serving the Business College office. 
You have been with several bosses and workmates 
and you have successfully proven that tolerance, patience, 
humility and the acceptance of the fact that you are not perfect 
(who is...? anyways) but will continue to learn, relearn or unlearn 
depending upon the needs of the times. There were bad days, 
some bad moves but there were a lot of good ones too. 

However ways, you deal with the ins and outs of days 
like a true soldier of  fortune. 
You are a friend to almost everyone 
(your trying to keep peace are at times misunderstood), 
you are an uncomplaining workmate 
(haha, you do complain, yes? but you try to make it through), 
you are a loving wife 
(we seldom hear you badmouth your spouse) 
and a cool mom 
(dancing, singing, reading, watching shows & 
conversing with your dalaginding). 
You are a good daughter and sister too. 

Given those facts and the upcoming years 
which I am certain will still be filled with challenges, 
I could only pray that you'd be given enough strength and 
divine guidance and overwhelming drive to be your usual cheery 
yet efficient self or better.
Do know that we appreciate your presence 
in our working lives. We thank you for helping us in ways you knew how. 
With you, we will keep trying to fulfill our purpose in this world.
