'Monumental Soul'


And the tears cascaded
from everyone's sullen eyes
for those who love freedom
upon witnessing the truth
on the peaceful demise
of a courageous leader
and Mother of Democracy
President Corazon Aquino.

Cory as commonly called
was the first lady President
of the Beloved Philippines
(the Pearl of the Orient)
finally bid goodbye in death
but will always stays in the heart
of every peace loving Filipino.

Cory was a mother
whose only legacy is
to carry on a hero's dream
advocated by her husband Ninoy
who was assassinated at tarmac
that ignited the peaceful EDSA revolution
and won it through prayers of the faithfuls

Cory had given new hope
to the greater Filipino citizens
of the Beloved Philippines
and became a great leader
who unselfishly lived to her words
'I rather have a meaningful death,
than live a meaningless life'
