The legendary Francis M. God bless the man.

Dear Francis,

When I learned that you died today,
a sudden gush of blood ran through my veins
It felt sad and I mourned quietly
I asked why and how
You must’ve gotten tired of staying at the 14th floor.
Did you die in pain? I hope not.

Your friends, kababayans and fans think it’s too soon
And you made us believe that you were okay
You have such an intense valor that kept everyone going
But was it all just an act?
The pain must’ve gotten you all worn out
Did you ever want to go? I understand why.

More than a decade ago,
You sang “Meron akong Ano”
It was only a year ago when you announced,
“Meron akong cancer”
We were all sad and we prayed
Did you get sad too? I didn’t think so.

You took us by surprise with your TV guestings
You were busy here and there, despite your condition
You managed to be stable and move forward.
With high hopes, we thought you could manage.
Did you have high hopes too? I certainly thought so.
And how wonderful it is to be like you.

You passed away on a hot summer-ry day
Yet it feels like a cold summer night.
Your absence left everyone in awe
Much to our surprise, you were gone.
Did you ever want to leave on a summer day?
So we could mourn and sing your song?
I know you didn’t mean to.

Like your three stars and a sun
You shine the brightest.
You were a talented creature
Your hopes and passion
Has put you to where you were.
A man with a free mind, gone too soon.
Did it have to end like this? I don’t really know.

You said you knew that your journey
Is on full speed ahead
Yet your writings show that you willingly
Submitted yourself to our Creator
You must’ve known that death is on your way.
How lucky could you be, did you know that?
But how tragic it is for everyone who loved you so.

You were a devoted artist, a loyal friend,
a proud daddy and a loving husband.
It must’ve felt great to be one of them
We could only mourn and go on with our lives
Did you really go away?
Our heavenly father must’ve taken you.
But in our illusive minds, lie one man named Francis M.
Go in peace. Farewell my idol.

    An ode for Francis.

    My heart is bleeding, my eyes are weeping.
    Last I saw FrancisM, he was jammin’ with Ely Buendia Live, fightin’ to survive.
    The king of rap is gone, now I’m shocked as every one.
    Rest in Peace homeboy. You’re now with the Lord in Joy.
    Props goes to you muh’men. You’ll forever be missed. Amen.

    It was too early. And they thought life began at 40.

  • 9. Gem  |  March 9, 2009 at 8:43 pm

    That’s life I guess. Perhaps it’s time to reunite with our Creature. And perhaps it’s just time to rest.
