On friends… and souls

Today is November 2, or what the ‘world’ celebrates as the All Souls’ Day. Take time to remember your ‘living’ friends and neighbors.

Idamay nyo na rin pati mga kaaway nyo…

You Forgot My Soul!

You lived next door to me for years,

We shared our dreams, our joys, our tears

A friend you were to me indeed

A friend who helped me in my need.

My faith in you was strong and true

We had such trust as would endure

No spats between us ever rose

Our friends were like — and so our foes.

What sadness then, my friend, to find

That after all, you weren’t so kind

The day my life on earth did end

I found you weren’t a faithful friend.

For all those years we spent on earth

You never talked of second birth

You never spoke of my soul

And of the Christ who’d make me whole.

I plead today from Hell’s cruel fire

And tell you now my last desire

You cannot do a thing for me

No words today my bonds to free.

But do not err, my friend, again

Do all you can for souls of men

Plead with them now quite earnestly

Lest they be cast in hell with me.
