What do We Mean to Each Other

 

Sino ako, ano nga ba tayo? kung ako’y panakip butas lang

Thanks to Chengboiser for the collaboration. POV male- blue, female-red

Tula na nabuo mula sa kantang What Do We Wean to Each Other ni Sergio Mendes at binigyan buhay sa saliw ng pagibig ni Sheen at Paul.

 

Sino ako kung wala ikaw
sino nga ba tayo
kung puro takot ang sinisigaw
sino ang kahati ng syang puso
na sa mata mo’y dumudungaw
Ano nga ba ako
sa kinabukasan mong inaasam
Sino ako kung wala ikaw
sino nga ba tayo
kung may tanong sa balintataw
sino ang hahanapin ko
sa kaguluhan at karangyaan
pasasaan ang tagumpay
kung puso’y naguguluhan

Sino ang hahagkan
kung ako at sya na lang

Sino nga ba ang lilingapin
kung sa labi ko’y
ngalan nya lang ang alam

Sino ang iduduyan
ng bisig mo sa kalungkutan

 

Ikaw, maaring ikaw

 

——– Dahil lamang sayo sya’y di laan.

Ikaw at Ako

Thanks to Chengboiser for making this poem with me even though she was sick and sore last Sunday.

PS. POV for male is blue, female is red and green is for both.

 

 

Sa dilim mga palad nati’y
palaging magkahawak
inaalalayan ka
hangga’t dumating ang umaga

Sa dilim tanging tinig mo
 nagbibigay lakas ng loob
upang tunguhin ang kagubatan
aabutin ang kalangitan

Sa liwanag ng kalangitan
ningning ng mata mo
siyang aking natuklasan
nagbibigay lakas, inspirasyon
sa bigat na tangan tangan

Sa liwanag ng kalangitan
iyong pagibig aking natuklasan
patuloy na naghihintay
sumusuyo, lumalaban.

 

 

 

 

The Yellow Love Sick Shirt

Sana di ka magalit pag nakita mo to, di ko kasi matiis.

 

Prancing on those grey tights

a yellow shirted girl

took a piece of my life.

Climbing the stairs of heaven

dreaming of her prince

not knowing that a lover

is keenly watching in.

So I quietly sit

and stare at her face

took a glimpse of her smile

which shoots in my vein.

She was looking at her phone

seriously taking a shot

not knowing I was there

taking my very own souvenir.

Answers on a Spring

IF you say goodbye to me
always remember this
that woman who means more to me
and if someone else would come
I wish its someone who will love you more
and take care of you
much more than I can do

_______________________________

Winds are strong

and the nights are cold

the springs promise

is all I could hold

troubled heart

and our restless soul

brought another lover

to this play we hold

Sakura

Sakura

how come you don’t see

mine devotion and passion

is what he wouldn’t give

My dear Sakura can you please bloom only for me

Monumental Panliligaw: Happy Day

 

Can anything be much sweeter than a yes

ok it wasn’t a yes,

but a maybe is  good enough

better than an I don’t know

much hopeful than  a NO.

Please don’t ever say no

Baby cause from now on I wont let you go

 

 

To see you when I wake up, is a gift I didn’t think could be real
To know that you feel the same, as I do, is a Three-fold utopian dream
You do something to me
That I can’t explain
So would I be out of line, If I said
I miss you.
I see your picture, I smell your skin on, the empty pillow next to mine
You have only been gone ten days, but already I am wasting away
I know I’ll see you again
Whether far or soon
But I need you to know, that I care
And I miss you

 

 

 

Monumental panliligaw: Maybe one day you’ll say a yes and an I love you too 😀

Whoever You Might Be

 

***This is an adaptation and not a translation of my previous Tagalog poem Kung Sino Ka Man

 

Walking alone
that has always been my thing,
I’ve wandered far and wide
not believing anything

I’ve always felt empty
and cold and sad inside,
Been broken for far too long
with scars that I can’t hide

Everything just seems so awry
I always felt unease,
been crying in the night
holding my pillow like a child,

Wondering if you’ll ever come
to save me and hold me in your arms

Never really felt the love
that I dreamt all throughout my life,
Its beginning hard to find real love
seems like it might never exist

At times I look at the stars
and whisper for you,
Though I didn’t know your name
but my heart thinks I do

I’m yearning for your touch
I’m waiting for that love
Heavens I promise to hold you tight
once I have you by my side

This I promise is Forever
and forever is set in stone
This is a poem for you my love

WHOEVER YOU MIGHT BE.
