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.

Kung Sino Ka Man

Alam mo ba na kay lamig
at lungkot ng puso ko,
noong mga araw na ako’y nagiisa
at palaging nabibigo

Niloloko ng lahat
at palaging natatalo,
nagmamahal man ng tapat
ngunit nakakatapat ng mapaglaro

Alam mo bang kay hirap
na tuwirang magtiwala,
pagka’t sa bilis ng panahon
lahat ay parang madaling mawala

Ang anghel na nakilala
ay isa palang palalo,
mga anghel na mapagkunwari
ngunit hanap lang ay ligayang panandali

Alam mo bang kay tagal
na rin kitang hinahanap,
kung saan saan na
ang mga paa ko’y napadpad

Bat di pa rin kaya tayo
tuluyang magka daumpalad,
o talagang dapat maghintay na lamang
sa sinaad at itinakda

Hay, tagatakdang tadhana
tila ako’y iyong pinapatay,
Alam mo bang pagod na pagod na
ang puso’t kaluluwa kong nalulumbay

Bat di pa kasi magpakita
bat di pa kasi mahanap ka
O mahal ko halika na’t
nais ko ng yakapin ka

Hahalikan, aalagaan
at mamahalin ng buong buo,
Gagapiin natin mahal ko
ang kalungkutang bigay ng masamang mundo

Bubuuin ang mga pangarap
at sabay haharapin ang bukas
lahat ito’y pangako ko
mula sa araw na pagdating mo

……………………………..KUNG SINO KA MAN.
