Thank you, Tita Cory!

When your husband was killed in 1983
You grieved for your one and only beloved
Yet you remained strong amidst the sorrow
Almost three years after Ninoy’s death
With a braveheart you accepted a battle
As you stood in front of many Filipinos
You brought your biggest weapon
Your big faith in our Lord Almighty
You taught the people to fight
Without a gun but a rosary
In the end the power of prayers prevailed
A non-violent revolution toppled a dictator
And the Philippines gained democracy
Soon you became the nation’s head
Philippines’ first female president
And first woman president in Asia

I was only a little girl
When you seated in MalacaƱang
So young to really understand
The significance of People Power
And how difficult your role was
As a mother not only to your family
But to all people living in 7,107 islands
Now the nation is mourning over your death
Your countrymen speak only good words
Your kindness to all people
And faith for our country
You are indeed worthy of all praises
Indeed the “Mother of Democracy”
But your love for God
Is the most important of all
No doubt you are now in heaven.

Thank you, Tita Cory!
Rest in Peace
