Terno

Muta at luha
Baro at saya
Kape at gatas
Sidekick at bida
Buwan at bituin
Sipon at ubo
Pawis at buwis
Ikaw at ako

Pares. Terno.

When I’m With You

When I’m with you,
Everything seems right and better.
When the storm is raging,
With you the world is a lot warmer.
I may be wounded and weak,
In your arms I feel tough and capable.
As tasks get harder,
You inspire me to reach further.
The world may stop spinning,
Yet we will continue to dance.
If the world has gone black and gray,
Rainbows form at your glance.
Oh, when I’m with you,
So many things make sense.
Without you now,
The world is back to normal.
The world is one whole big suspense.

Imbisibol

Sana, sa muling tayo’y magkita,
Hindi na tayo magkukunwaring
Imbisibol. Sana, sa susunod
Na pagkakataon, tayo’y maging
Imbisibol. May layang mawala.

Alright

Land of Confusion

“Are you okay?”
“Uhm, yeah, I’m fine”
“You don’t look fine to me.”
“I am fine. I am alright.”
“All right? Everything’s goin’ right for you, huh?”
“No, not everything, really…”
“But you just said, you’re all right, so nothing’s wrong?”
“That’s not what I meant.”
“Then what’s wrong?”
“…Nothing.”
“Nothing’s wrong or nothing’s right?”
“C’mon…”
“C’mon what?”
“I don’t want to fight.”
“I just want to know if you’re alright…”

…and there will always be a time when
the very person closest to you
is the very one you can’t understand.

Yet, you stay, you carry on…
And you ask, for how long?

Usad Pagong

Usad pagong,
hindi lumilingon –
napapasuntok
sa inis
ang kamaong
nakakuyom.

Usad pagong,
gumagapang;
simbagal ng paghingi
ng kapatawaran
ng taong
naglilinis-linisan.

Usad pagong,
nakakapagpatunganga,
napapakagat-labi
sa inip;
ang puso kong
nananabik.
