Ako ngayo'y nakatayo, naghihintay,
hindi mapakali, buong puso'y nakaantabay.
Sa pagbukas ng dalawang pinto sa dulo, sa hangganan,
lahat ng tao, nakaabang, tayong dalawa'y magkahagkan.

At sa wakas heto na nga,
sa umaalon **** belo ako'y napahanga.
Aking mga mata, patak ng luha'y di mapigilan,
ngiti at galak ko'y walang mapaglagyan.

Sa harap ng diyos, mahal, ako'y nangangako,
parehong saya at hirap, tayogn dalawa ang aako.
Ikaw lamang at wala nang iba,
Hanggang ang apoy ng buhay ay hindi na maglinga.

Sun
He looked at her like she was the sun,
in that, he never looked at her except in frustration.
Basking in her warmth; complaining in its absence,
still, looking at her fails his minute admiration.

On days when she feels strong, he hid
on moments that she is muted, infuriating.
He never looked, that he never did
not until she was already leaving.

And in the crimson landscape that she had left behind,
the beautiful sunset, burning the oceans of yore
With a pang of regret from the back of his mind
He wondered, why he had never seen her before

You are the thorn on my side,
the little ***** inside the skin of my thumb.
You are that constant pain in my neck,
that won't disappear even if I crack it numb.

I hate you with every fiber of my being,
not a day goes by without my life left ruined.
You annoy the ******* **** out of me,
But I just can't seem to set myself free.
Hindi na ako makahinga,
pinipilit ang sariling bumangon.
Nasa ilalim ng mabigat na bunga,
ng aking mga pagkakamaling naglaon.

Natatakot, nangangamba,
sa pagsilang ng umaga.
Sa hudyat nitong kasama, laging dala,
ang siklo ko'y muli nang nagsimula.

Lalaban, lalarga, makikibaka,
sa alon ng buhay, mabagal, nalunod na.
Ngunit nang mata'y nagkasalubong, nagkita,
aksidente nga ba o matamis na tadhana.

Sa pagitan ng pawis at dugo at luha
ng mga tao na ngayon tayo ay nasa gitna.
Mayroon ako, ikaw, gustong ipahiwatig,
pero pareho tayo, boses, napatid.

Pagkakataon lumisan na,
ikaw ang nauna, ako'y nasakal ng pangamba.
Muling sinubukan, ipagtagpo ang mga mata,
hindi kita malilimutan.
