    i'm sorry.
    this is the day that we tell you goodbye
    and accept your eternal rest
    this is the day you are finally gone
    but somehow i only think of myself.
    i think about my selfish ways
    and how when you were here
    you did anything i ever asked
    my unhappiness being your only fear.
    i think about all the times you said you loved me
    and i steadily pushed you away
    i think about all the times you rescued me
    and how i thought we always had another day.

    i'm sorry.
    this is the moment i stand at the church
    this is my time i'm supposed to speak.
    your mother is counting on me for this
    but at this moment, i feel very weak.
    i used to think i was ms independent
    needing nothing but my own solid ground
    and i never realized you were it.
    just so used to having you around.

    angel- i'm sorry.
    you tried and tried to save me
    and i took you through so much pain
    i saw you as my own umbrella
    so i wasn't afraid of the rain.
    i wasted so much time we had
    and as you take your final bow
    i hold your hand as long as i can
    because there's no one left to love me now.

    i love you, tico, even if i never told you.
    --Ms. Dy

    You made chill bumps raise on my arms!

    How many of us take for granted that those we love
    will always be around...I am thankful to God he gave
    me the kind of spirit that though very independent
    I give unselfishly of self and never forget to send
    love to those who have shown love and on rare
    occassion even those who did not...This was un-
    doubtedly one of the most prolific poems on the
    board today...one that should be repeated over
    and over again lest we forget...THANK YOU !

    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!
