AJ Perez’s father Gerry Perez shares song dedicated to the memory of late son; lyrics written by Martin Nievera

Concert King Martin Nievera sent Gerry Perez (main picture) a letter and a demo of the song "Until We Meet Again," composed in memory of his son, AJ Perez (inset), who died in a tragic vehicular accident on April 17, 2011. Music was composed by Marvin Querido, with lyrics by Martin Nievera.



Isang e-mail ang natanggap ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) mula kay Mr. Gerry Perez, ama ng namayapang young actor na si AJ Perez, na naglalaman ng sulat at isang kanta na nilikha ng Concert King na si Martin Nievera at nilapatan ng musika ni Marvin Querido.

Sariwa pa sa alaala ng buong industriya ang maagang pagpanaw ni AJ dahil sa car accident na naganap nuong April 17, 2011. Pinagluksa ito ng pamilya at malalapit na mga kaibigan ng young actor kung saan nagsilbi pala itong inspirasyon kay Martin para makalikha ng isang kanta.

Narito ang sulat ni Martin Nievera kay Gerry Perez:


"Hi Gerry,



"It was great to finally meet you the other night at the Pen. I know that we hardly know each other and that AJ and I probably spoke twice that I can remember backstage in ASAP.

"But I am still a father.

"When I found out what had happened that day we lost AJ, I was moved to tears and my imagination took me to places I didn’t want to be. I automatically put myself in your shoes and thought of my three sons.



"I mean, this could happen to any father and I am so deeply sorry it happened to you. But what if it happened to me? That is where this song was born.

"With the music of Marvin Querido, I was able to put these words down. I tried to imagine what could’ve been if I were to turn back the hands of time to the very beginning of that tragic day. Even though I know we will all meet again in a beautiful place where pain does not exist, I still could not help thinking, what if...



"I am sorry I am only able to give you this song now, but during the time of AJ’s early goodbye, there was so much going on in the media, I didn’t want to seem like I was trying to get air time.

"I truly felt your loss and here is the song to prove it. I am glad I met you because I feel you should hear this song before anyone else. God bless you and your family, Gerry.

"Here is the song. Please forgive the quality of this demo. I wrote it the day after we lost AJ using only my laptop and the built-in microphone on my MacBook Air."



Until We Meet Again

What do you do
What can you say
How can you mend a broken heart

How many tears
How many years
When will forgetting start

So little time
Each moment divine
Like pictures from a near past

Can time be my friend
Let that day begin again
Making each moment last

I won’t let you get away
I should have made you stay
Now that you are gone
Darkness shines brighter than the sun

in my heart till the end
Until we meet again...

So little time
Each moment divine
Like pictures from a near past

Can time be my friend
Let that day begin again
Making each moment last

I won’t let you get away
I should have made you stay
Now that you are gone
Darkness shines brighter than the sun

In my heart till the end
Until we meet again...

And with all that I have in me
With every single prayer I pray
You’ll be there right beside me
And in my dreams there’ll be no end

I won’t let you get away
I should have made you stay
Now that you are gone
Darkness shines brighter than the sun

In my heart till the end
Until we meet again

You’ll be in my heart till the end
Until we meet again...

(In Memory of AJ Perez)
