Maulan na kahapon
Sa gitna ng mga nagtataasang puno
Halika't ating langhapin
Ang amoy ng mga patak ng ulan
Sa mga luntiang dahon ng kagubatan

Parating na ang dapithapon
Di ba pwedeng manatili ka muna?
Kahit sandali lang
Tabihan ako kasama ng ingay ng katahimikan

Ang tamis ng mga sandaling itinanikala
Sa mga ala-alang upos
At ang mga sabik na yapos
Ng aking mga kamay sa iyong mukha

Ang mga paglubog na araw
na magkasamang tinignan
Kung ako ang iyong tatanungin
Gusto ko na lamang manatili
Sa mga panahong kasama kang tumatakbo sa ulan.

Lip to lip
Is it really sweet?
The first kiss
Everyone longs for
Is it really grand?
Is this what we all adore?
To carefully find the right person
to give it to
Maybe
Is it irresistible?
Passionate it may seem
We find it inexplicable
No matter how we see the world
It really is inevitable
Is it true?
Some people pours
Their own heart just for that
kiss
Some people play
Like they don't care
Some people wait
To really optimize that
moment
Some people die
Without knowing
what it feels like
what it tastes like

Senseless;Happiness
Windows of the soul
The colors of the prowl
The mistress of the night
The wary spouse pursuing moonlight
Reckless and imperfect
Just and able to protect
What are we doing here?
Purpose of life
Inevitable death
Struck like a dull knife
Over the sound of the silent breath
Hear the words
Feel the lords
Over the horizon
Waiting to be poisoned
What are we doing here?
Inexplicable mess
Nonchalant actions
The king is the mightiest in chess
Yet it faces great dissatisfaction
Cringe and shiver
Of the ruthless bow and arrows in the quiver
Senseless words
Yet it tastes sweeter
What are we doing here?
Cloudy eyes
And intangible lines
Color me deeper
The life declines
Darkness is bright
Shadow of blight
I know that
These senseless words
are senseless
But who are you to judge?
For it gives me happiness
I know now what are we doing here
We are here for one thing
Now my mind is clear
I will say it for the time being
What is the purpose of life, you say?
It matters not
Whether you are given a life or a chance to stay
For all I know
Having life does not come with a purpose
But what will you do to your life and what you propose
It is not for the circumstances of your birth
Rather how you choose to live the life you have
Albeit hateful or being hurt
It matters not as long as it is worth remembering for

Seen
Now
I know
What it feels like
To be seen
In modern times
Or the times we all have been
It feels like a chime
And drains the self-esteem
Don't worry friend
You and I will see
What the world truly is
What the world can be
I have seen
The light of the morning sky
The stain that burns the eye
There is hope
There is life
We will see
What we truly claim to be
Be it the adjacent lines
Or the blurry hope
That we will strive and be free
I have seen
The capability
Each and every one of us have
Let alone immortality
Don't be afraid friend
We will see
How people will persevere
How people will succeed
Don't let darkness lurks in you
Because
I see
The beauty
Of Your perfect inequalities
I have seen
All the tragedy
All the hate
And all the immorality
Yet
The world truly proves
That beauty lies within
All the bad things we possess
All the imperfections deep in
Don't worry friend
You and I have seen
How the world strove
How the world will evolve
Even at the darkness
See the world rise again
Because no matter what
It is for the world to gain
I have seen
Even though darkness
Ensues and devours you deep in
The world will find a way
To let the sunshine begin
Now
I know
What it is like
To have seen
That even sometimes we are eaten
By the insecurities we deem
I can say
That is what makes us human it seem

Fools
We are just fools
Stranded in a desert
Waiting, wanting to be saved
While we let our feet
Be stuck in the sand

Struck
Struck me down with your glance
As I fade into the moonlight
Lay me down with your trance
Oh everything feels so right

Among the northern stars
You shine the brightest
Underneath the great blue sky
I long for your interest

Color me deeper
Attract me with your soul
Kindle me with your warmth
Take me as your keeper

Look into my eyes
And tell me you're mine
Look deep into my soul
Let our hearts intertwine

Flower in the garden
Baby I'm but a flower in your garden
Waiting to bloom amidst the midsummer sky
Shine on me, my dear one
And let the world know I'm yours

Make me tremble with your frail wind
Make me whisper among the dandelions in the field
Make me shine like I ain't shine before
Make me say that I'm yours forevermore.

— The End —
