The lights were up, and stars alight,
Everything just felt perfect and right;
Crowd screaming and singing and dancing,
A night so surreal, you wouldn’t want an ending.
The bass conquered a heavy roar,
The strings and crisp of piano soar;
And as my favorite band took over the stage,
I knew it was a night to remember as I age.
A Head Full of Dreams went coming true,
As lights colored Yellow and tears flew;
Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall that night,
Making The Scientist in me put up its fight.
Birds went flying to Paradise,
Now, Always In My Head is a Magic undisguised;
You wrapped your arms around me in Everglow,
Forgetting that the Clocks would tick at Midnight and blow.
Playing Charlie Brown as I sing a Hymn For The Weekend,
Sadness clearing as the straights went bend;
You whispered in my ear, “I will try to Fix You and your broken pieces,”
Being among the few Heroes that brought me to my senses.
I said, “Viva La Vida!”, as I forget all my troubles,
It’s An Adventure of a Lifetime to pop all my bubbles;
Telling myself to Don’t Panic, I’m In My Place,
Because you are there, a permanent Ink in all my days.
The band wrote a song specially for us,
And I need a hug Something Just Like This to clear my fuss;
And you with me under A Sky Full Of Stars,
Felt like Up&Up the heavens defeating wars.
And through the fireworks, you held me tight,
Pulling me closer, never going out of sight;
And all about this, I would love to make an endless story,
An ethereal moment that will always be in my memory.
P.S. This poem is dedicated to Coldplay and to the one I was with at #ColdplayManila. Errol, thank you for being with me that night and for giving me those warm hugs when I got emotional, especially during Yellow, The Scientist, Everglow, and Fix You. ❤
