Pray With Me
When she stands behind, she smiles a sad smile, caught between uncertainty and bliss. There are no roadsigns available to her - no map to show her the way. And she stands there, watching, in the trickling rain, the sun's rays casting rainbows in the cemented floor.
If I could say one thing, it would be this: I can't see beyond tomorrow... but with you, it's okay.

In other news, I would like to say a Blessed Samhain to all the Children of the Craft who at times stumble onto this blog. Bright Blessings be with you all and I lift my glass of Novelino (or I will, rather, tonight) to each and every one of you.
As I have mentioned, in an earlier entry, Harle and Mai will be bunking over at my place tonight. [pauses while she searches for a certain picture] This, naturally means - mayhem and chaos over at the Dauphin household, taking into mind that there is my darling brother, Flip to consider. *coughcough* For those who have no idea as to what I mean - to mix the elements of Flip, Maia and Harle together is like mixing a... *pauses as she tries to recall her chemistry notes* a... a... v. bad combination of chemicals that will indefinitely lead to an explosion of some sorts.
For short - I think there is a slight possibility that I will go crazy tonight.
*snorts* And it won't do to have my mother telling me that my singing sounds like I'm a wolf howling at the moon. *GLARES* FYI, cheres, first, my singing does not sound like howling, and second of all - that's MAIA's image animal.^^
I'm not quite sure if it's wise to put this up... but then again, I'm just sharing my views anwyay. *sticks tongue out*
I saw Liam today. And damn me to blistering hell if my heart didn't cease for but a moment. GR........ not. good. Definitely not a good thing.

Waiting (for my rocket to come?) for Harle.
Love. One of the most wonderful and yet at the same time, the most painful things for one to ever learn in a lifetime. Strange enough, when I look around to the people I care for the most in the world (my precious girls, my darling kids, my brothers and my numberous friends), it seems to me that everyone's going through one rut or the other for the past few months.
Yes, I have to agree with Harle that the barkada is, I believe, one year old already - but then again... Harle... that's only online. The Pantheon didn't get together for real until the third term of last schoolyear... which is still yet to come.^^ Don't worry, I'll be looking through all my archives just to see when the exact date wherein the original Wednesday Gang got together in McDo for the first time.
In the meantime - yes, it was around this time last year where I bounded down the side of LS Building calling out "SAAAAAAAAAM!!!" which, to my fortune, ended up having Kai introduced to me for the first time ever. And then, let's not forget that it was also around this blessed time that Maia and Doggie bounded into McDo on that fateful Wednesday afternoon - Urd-nee spouting curses of the sort in the direction of UP Diliman.
Goddess, I have been blessed. *smiles* Which, is the blunt truth with regards to all of you.
There is a song that goes:
No mountain, no valley
No time, no space
- incomplete verse from Thank You
(whoever can provide me lyrics is welcome to leave a message at the bottom comment box)
Harle, I guess you could say that this entry is especially for you considering that your latest LJ entry is the newest thing to hit the online community by storm.
And I believe that everyone else in the barkada would agree just the same.
You're right, cher, things would be different - completely. They say that in the tapestry of life, when one thread is removed, the whole picture unravels... and though the group won't unravel, the fact that we might end up getting together on Wednesdays minus one Harle would have a huge enough impact.
But things are as things should be and all we can do is hope - I may be one of the stubbornest people in the world who would rather have you stay - period, but there are others out there who would miss out on the opportunity to meet you as Fate should deem. And at this point in time, I would rather not get on the bad side of that particular entity.
Things will be fine, ma chere (yes Leander, I know the spelling's wrong), and I still stand by the fact that it is still two years from now. If so much can happen in the span of two months (you admitted to Mac, Sis and her own little escapades, Kai is back, my own little tragedies and victories, Maia's birthday and Leander's letter arriving, Liam walking into our lives) - there is so much yet to happen... and as I have come to believe now, maybe it's better to take things as they come and just smile when the rain falls or when the sun shines.
Life is... Harle. And we will always be.
I expect you and Maia to report to my house tomorrow evening - we have Samhain to celebrate. Kai and Sis, don't worry.^^ There's always next year and the ton of other festivals coming our way.

This is our Pledge
within all shall mend.
Six months and nine days ago we made a pact in the suite of Manila Pavilion.
That holds true, even when the roughest of storms come our way.
I love you all.

Change has come, and there is now way to stop it.

"I love Amy Lee from Evanescence and admire her style in singing. Her voice is heartbreaking and it just gets to you. I'm not saying I want to be her, but to be able to sing as good as she can, and as honest as she can... that's enough."
