Alone, far from the façade of my paradise.

Paradise of dreams to which some, I have conquered.

Some, I’ve left behind,

And some, still hang all my desires.

 

Will I be staying away from there forever?

My mind has been restless

Everything comes to my senses

Holding and haunting me.

 

Missing the laughter we used to share

Reminiscing the moments

Wishing and hoping for a past pace of events

So I could go back . . .

 

See old faces of my place

Hear the harmony of such haven

Feel the same ambiance

I can’t wait no longer
I’m missing my paradise
May the days and nights come

So I could go back.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

 

This is how I felt while doing my practicum at Lawaan NHS, Talisay for the first few weeks…
