Farewell

Last night I went out with a couple of my officemates.  I met up with them having rested for a while at home after our basketball game.  They were playing billiards by the time I caught up with them.  Then afterwards, we had dinner then went for videoke.

It was an impromptu “despedida” for John.  It was his resignation’s effectivity date and tatay wanted to make it memorable.  After videoke for 4 hours, we ate Durian before saying our farewells.  It’s a bit bitterweet for me seeing these guys together for the last time.  John was one of my best recommended applicant and he was the first one I hired after I was hired in our company.  It pains me to think that he’ll be leaving ahead of me.  And now, I’m swamped with a couple of vacancies still waiting to be filled.

SIGH.  But I can’t do anything more about it if he wishes for greener pastures.   Anyway, he sang one song which I will always remember.  Farewell by Raymond Lauchengco.

FAREWELL
Raymond Lauchengco

We used to be frightened and scared to try
Of things we don’t really understand why
We laugh for a moment and start to cry
We were crazy
Now that the end is already here
We reminisce ’bout old yells and cheers
Even if our last hurrahs were never clear

Farewell to you my friends
We’ll see each other again
Don’t cry ’cause it’s not the end of everything
I may be miles away
But here is where my heart will stay
With you, my friends with you

Yesterday’s a treasure, today is here
Tomorrows’ on its way, the sky is clear
Thank you for the mem’ries of all the laughters and tears
And not to mention our doubts and our fears
The hypertension we gave to our peers
It’s really funny to look back after all of these years

Farewell to you my friends
We’ll see each other again
Don’t cry ’cause it’s not the end of everything
I may be miles away
But here is where my heart will stay
With you, my friends with you

Farewell to you my friends
We’ll see each other again
Don’t cry ’cause it’s not the end of everything
I may be miles away
But here is where my heart will stay
With you, my friends with you
With you, my friends with only you
