The Visitor

PLEASE LISTEN TO THIS:

 

I moved back and forth in this dark room
looking at him, watching as he sleeps
listening to his heart beat
smiling when he draw his breath
as he murmur in our old bed.
Suddenly he moved to his side
showing a tear from his eye
just then I hear my name as he speaks
shocked, I just started to weep.

“forgive me my love, If I have gone
leaving you behind with promises undone
our life together may have been short-lived
but my love for you is forever…..

                   that even death can’t steal”

Philophobia

Last night I slept with a prayer in my heart
an old soul to a young adult that’s afraid from the start

Books of sorrows and fiction used to be my window
to the truth of the world and men, I used to be a callow

Faces of strangers came rushing in
with promises of morrow behind the empty grins

Worried and battered as the ground crumbles
so I kept my distance, from the world’s troubles

Amid the flurry of young beleaguered souls
My heart tries to hope despite the tears and loss

Although a new beginning has started to set in
Push and pull of doubts relentlessly has kept me bleak

Cause truth be told in dismay it feels impassive still
for why dear heart how is it hard for you to trust and to feel.

 

Para Sayo

Mulat man ngunit bulag,
Kumakapa kahit tarik ang araw
Sariliy di maintindihan
Ninanais ng isipa’y di matugunan
Tinatangi ang gawaing pariwara
Tuwina’y naglalakbay sa tagilid na kalsada
Patuloy na naghahanap ng makakasama
Pagkat kalungkutan ang syang kaaway nyaKaibigan kailan ka ba titgil
Sayong paglalaro’y di kita mapipigil
Iyong mga mata, lungkot ba ang kinukubli?
At pagmamahal sa sarili ay sya mo ng winaksi

Halika’t akoy iyong kausapin
Damdamin at problemay aking aalamin
Wag matakot pagkat akoy handang tumulong
Sa mundong makasalanan di ko nais ikay malulong.

SELF RESPECT TAKES NO CONSIDERATION- Mahatma Ghandi

Alitaptap

Inaakit ng mundo na puno ng kalungkutan
Nananabik sa pagsuyo ng isang pagmamahalan
Mga tao’y sa dilim gumagalaw, umiindayog
Umuuwi nama’y lumong sa spirito at pakawalang alindog.
Pupungas pungas nang siya’y magising
Tulala at nililinga ang binibining nakahimbing
Isipay magulo at tila ito’y sasabog
Hudyat ng pag eskapo, umuwi at lumimot.
Samantala’y nakahimbing na dilag tuluyan ding nagising
Sa kwartong makasalanan binabaling ang tingin
Wala na ang pintakasi ng alak at sayaw
Naiwan ay ‘sang lugmok na dignidad na tila pumupusyaw.
Inaakit ng mundo na puno ng kasalanan
Mga sabik sa pagibig ngunit nag tatanga-tangahan
Binabaling ang isip sa liliw ng musika at liwanag
Na tila mga alitaptap sa mundo ng karuwagan.
