hindi ko makakalimutan
kung paano mo hinawakan,
ang aking mga kamay
noong ako'y nalulumbay.

binawasan mo ang aking pagdadalamhati,
at ibinalik mo ang ngiti saaking mga labi;
kasiyahan ko'y ikaw ang pinagmulan,
presensiya mo'y lagi kong inaabangan.

ngayon ako'y iyong iniwan,
at puso ko'y tunay na nasugatan.
sino bang mag-aakala
na ang dating dahilan ng aking saya,
ngayon ay sanhi na ng aking mga pasa.
paalam saating maliligayang araw.
as much as i loved the idea
of being close to you;
i also want you to know
that i like you
nevertheless my heart is
aghast to know
on how would you respond
to my dire confession.


2. i utterly know to myself
that we are just friends;
but what if
i want to risk that friendship
into a whole new degree?


3. the moment i laid my eyes on you,
you already had a one-off place
in my heart;
it was once you,
it is still you.
and it will always, always be you.

4. little do you know
that you are my sunshine
each day of my life
has become splendid
all because of an
incandescent person ㅡ
which is you.

5. my dear,
how could you easily sway me
with your brief smile?
though dinky,
you already made my day grandoise.
alam kong napakabata ko pa
upang ibigin ng sobra
ang taong akala ko'y kaibigan ko lang,
na kahit kailan ay 'di ako binigyan ng daing.

labis na ligaya
ang natamo ko galing sakanya.
lahat ng maliligaya kong araw,
ala-ala namin ang nakasaklaw.

subalit ito'y kailangan kong itigil,
nang pati ang sarili ko'y aking natatakwil;
lalo na't ngayon ay aking napagtanto,
na ako lang pala ang nakadama ng ganito.
do not feel apologetic
for not liking me back.
i do know
that you also have
a heart of your own
and feelings to be accountable of.

yes, the heart wants what it wants
and i understand
that i am not the one
who your heart wants
and your heart doesn't
beat for me.

— The End —
