Kung Sino Ka Man

Ikaw ang buwan hindi magsasawang pagmasdan

Ikaw ang bituin sa kalangitan na aking nakamtan

Iyong ngiti ay hindi ko pagsasawaan

Hindi ko mapigilan ang nararamdaman

Alam ko ikaw ang aking iibigin magpakailan man

 

Hindi pa man kita nasisilayan

Hindi ka na mawala sa aking isipan

Ano kaya ang kanyang pangalan?

Hindi ko alam kung saan ang tagpuan

Hindi ko alam kung meron bang matatagpuan

 

Hindi pa man kita nakikilala, sapul na sapul na ang puso ko

Ipagdarasal ko kay ama at ibubulong kay kupido

Sana ako’y iyong tanggapin ng buong buo

Dahil mamahalin kita ng buong puso

Ako ay mahihintay sa’yo

Ngayon, ako ay naghahanda para sa’yo

 

 

 

Lost Then Found

Peeling oranges and watching the steam from the cup of tea by the window

There she is again, wandering while sitting

There she is again, questioning while dreaming

Peeling oranges and breathing in the calming smell of jasmine

 

She’s afraid yet her courage is skin-deep

She is as brittle as glass yet a diamond

She feels she doesn’t fit in

She feels she’s not good enough, not beautiful enough

 

 

 

Tea lost its steam yet still warm. Sweet yet bland oranges were done

There she is, wandering in her mind with her chin up high

There she is, she closed her eyes. She smiled with hope and put her palms together

There she is, ready to drown all the waters

Misty

 

 

You are the summer that I have been longing and waiting for

You are the sunshine that I look forward to see every day

You are like an ocean, a pleasure to see

You are my favorite song, a pleasure to hear

 

Suddenly my favorite song became a lonely song that I kept on playing

Suddenly the sun burned me, it hurt.

Suddenly the ocean was covered with storm

Suddenly I prayed for summer to be over
