You were born to live
to see the sunrise
and dream big behind those gloomy clouds
You were born to laugh
to watch over the rainbow
and put a smile on every sorrow
You were born to heal
Not just an injured wound
but also a broken hope of the unwell
Above all you were born to be happy
and cherish every single thing in the world
You were meant to survive every battle in whatever circumstances
Your life was precious
You were here in this community to make a difference
But, why did they take your life?
Is it out of greed, hatred or vengeance
We tried to ponder, but we can’t see
What the reason might be
But only a monster could only do such a thing
To take a precious life is unforgivable
The people on Earth mourned
Even God in Heaven is pissed
When you’re gone
tears flood the nation
more dreams are shattered and fell down
That’s what they call you
You were admired for your achievements and great service
You were born with a golden heart
People you’ve touched could see it through
Nevertheless, your assailant still left a bullet inside you
that perished your young life
Justice is what we seek
Someone has to pay
For taking the life of a “Health Hero” like Dr. Drey
It’s all over the news the death of my relative and friend. Everyone who knows him personally are in great sorrow. It is hard to accept that he was killed after serving poor community in (Barrios) rural areas in the Southern part of the country.
I’m sorry if I can’t visit your wake in the province. But you are always in my thoughts and prayers. May your soul rest in peace.
I met you when we were kids, Maybe I was 9 or 10 years old back then. It was summer vacation you often visited Eboy and Guia at their grandparents’ house to play. My mom used to work there, when the three of you played, you always checked on me and asked if I wanted to join. You were so nice and friendly. Every time you visited there you went straight in to the kitchen because you knew I was there sitting. You always handed me some candies every time you went there. I was just shy and I barely speak. You were taller than the average kids of your age that I mistakenly thought you were a lot older than me. After that summer vacation I had never seen you for so long, I heard you went to a different high school, and also went to college to somewhere farther city from our town. Thanks to FB we became friends again, and I saw how you transformed into a fine young man and you became a Doctor by profession.
Even if we are not really close friends. I am still really proud of all your achievements and sacrifices. I’m just very sad to lose a very nice person like you. I feel sorry for your family- this tragedy must be really hard for them to cope.
We pray that justice will prevail.
Even if you are not here anymore, you are always remembered by those people who truly love you. “Paalam, Sana maging mapayapa ang iyong kaluluwa saan ka man ngayon.” Thank you for knowing you…
