I am in solitaire and lonely
I have no friend or enemy
I am in search for friendship
Waiting for the blooming of a new relationship
I need someone to have a talk
And laugh around as we walk
Then one day, I saw this place where
Full of vandalism called "Message Corner"
I have guessed that this is the answer to my problem
I finally saw my friendship emblem
It was an oasis on my dessert
A harmony to hear from a nightingale's concert
I wrote a note which reads "I need a friend"
When I came back, I saw a reply which makes me ascend
A moment in my life which no one foretells
At last! I have a friend; her name is "Anna Michelle"
We became friends because of that message corner
We talk about everything which makes us feel better
Then one day, I asked her "if we can meet and have Zagu®"
On my surprise, she said "Yes!" with no further do
I came on the right time on our settled place
But six hours had gone; I still didn't saw her face
I called her but she gave me no answer
"Its Ok if I don't see her, but God please take her away from danger"
The next day, I text her "What happen my Anna Michelle?"
She made a reply which says "Sorry, I don't feel well"
She also added "I hate to say this but, I have to leave.
But before it happens please make a wish that I will give.
Just tell what it is, for you my man.
And I promise to bestow it as far as I can"
I said to her "My wish is to see you before you go"
There was no reply, there was no approval; "please I want to know"
The next day, she texted me, and then burst of happiness was shed
"Ok meet me at the church. I will wear white, tomorrow" she said
Excitement running rush into my veins
Along side with fear which my mind cannot explain
The day came; I wore my best suit, smooth and well pressed
I choose white to resemble with her dress
Excitement distraught me a lot and give me a colossal thirst
As I quench it, I dropped the glass and on the floor water burst
Luckily my dress was not blemished
For sure if my Anna Michelle saw my dress she will relish
It's already time, so I hurriedly drive my way to the place
Where I will see the face of the girl I love in so much grace
In church, all I see is people wearing black
They were crying and rubbing each others back
It was a funeral mass, I immediately sense
And I was right; is this fate? Or just a coincidence
Then I saw the casket near the Altar
Unbelievably, I seem to hear it calling me within a distance far
I just found myself coming close in front
I hallucinate that it is me it want
What rest in the casket is a beautiful maiden
I can see youth in her face, how come her life was early taken?
I notice that she was wearing a white dress; bright and neat
And this makes my heart suddenly stop its beat
A woman approaches me and asked "Are you Mark?"
I answered "Yes, I am Mark" then she handed me a letter
As I open the letter, I found my self crying indeed
My Anna Michelle wrote me a letter. And it reads:
"Dear Mark, I'm glad you came before I finally leave
I want to say thank you for the great times you give.
Sorry if I didn't tell you about this
Because I am afraid to take away your bliss
I suffered from cancer for a long time
And in those years, I don't know what it feels to be fine
Until you came and define to me the meaning of happiness
And showed me love full of willingness
I had given you your wish, am I?
Sorry if I die young and made you cry
If only I have lived long, I want to be your wife
Will you still treat me Zagu® in my next life?
I know you will, am I right?
Of course I am right. So bye now, time to follow the light
Take care of yourself and live your life well
Mark, I love you and goodbye. Sincerely, your Anna Michelle"
