Ronan

WAAAHHH!!! Hindi ko mapigilang 'di umiyak sa kantang Ronan ni Taylor Swift. True-to-life ang kwento tungkol kay Ronan Thompson, na sa murang edad ay binawian ng buhay dahil sa neuroblastoma, isang uri ng cancer. Mababaw talaga ang luha ko pagdating sa mga batang imbes na naglalaro at ine-enjoy ang kabataan ay nakikipaglaban na sa buhay.

Ronan and Maya Thompson
Nabuo ni Taylor Swift ang kanta dahil nabasa niya ang mga heart-breaking blog posts ng ina ni Ronan na si Maya Thompson (rockstarronan.com). Wala na sigurong mas sasakit pa sa isang ina na makitang iginugupo ng sakit ang sariling anak.

Taylor sang it live last Friday sa telethon ng Stand Up 2 Cancer. Mismong siya ay naluha matapos ang kanyang performance. Nag-number one agad ang kanta sa iTunes sa dami ng bumili. Lahat kasi ng kikitain ng single ay bonggang mapupunta sa cancer-related charities.

Here's the video of the performance. Maghanda ng tisyu at todong luluha kayo...



I remember your bare feet down the hallway
I remember your little laugh
Race cars on the kitchen floor, plastic dinosaurs
I love you to the moon and back

I remember your blue eyes looking into mine
Like we had our own secret club
I remember you dancing before bed time
Then jumping on me, waking me up

I can still feel you hold my hand, little man
And even the moment I knew
You fought it hard like an army guy
Remember I leaned in and whispered to you

Come on baby with me we're gonna fly away from here
You were my best four years

I remember the drive home
When the blind hope turned to crying and screaming "Why?"
Flowers pile up in the worst way, no one knows what to say
About a beautiful boy who died

And it's about to be halloween
You could be anything you wanted if you were still here
I remember the last day when I kissed your face
I whispered in your ear

Come on baby with me we're gonna fly away from here
Out of this curtain room and this hospital grey, we'll just disappear
Come on baby with me we're gonna fly away from here
You were my best four years

What if I'm standing in your closet trying to talk to you?
What if I kept the hand-me-downs you won't grow into?
And what if I really thought some miracle would see us through?
What if the miracle was even getting one moment with you?

Come on baby with me we're gonna fly away from here
Come on baby with me we're gonna fly away from here
You were my best four years

I remember your bare feet down the hallway
I love you to the moon and back
