Someone's waiting for you!

Be brave little one
Make a wish for each sad little tear
Hold your head up when no one is near
Someone’s waiting for you.

Don’t cry, little one.
There’ll be a smile where a frown used to be
You’ll be part of the love that you seek.
Someone’s waiting for you.

Always keep a little prayer in your pocket
And you’re sure to see the light.
Soon there’ll be joy and happiness.
And your little world will be bright.

Have faith little one
Till your hopes and your wishes come true
You must try to be brave little one
Someone’s waiting to love you.

I used to sing this song by Lea Salonga when I was still a little girl. The song is very special to me because the words comforted me when one night while camping (Girl Scout) at Caliraya, I had no one to go with me to cross the hill in a dark and rainy night to get drinking water. I was only 12 years old then and it was my first time to be away from home where everything else is being served to me (I was blessed to have a yaya, lola and stay at home mom back then). I was crying while singing but the tune and lyrics made me move on and I was able to reach my goal (to get water for my patrol). I was reminiscing these every time I sing that song while on my way to work because the thought of leaving home and walking in dark and eerie streets to reach my destination is one hell of a struggle. I just hope that someone’s waiting for me at the end of the tunnel. Maybe the Lord saying, Well done Irmee! Or the Visa Officer saying Enjoy your stay here! I just hope that I can sing the song over and over until the words in the last phrase are fulfilled. The Girl Scout Leadership Award I got for that one night made a difference in my life. I’m sure God has another one in store for me and my family. Keep on singing, Irmee!
