How is it possible
That I’m so full
If at times you feel you want to cry
And life seems such a trial,
Above the clouds there's a bright blue sky,
So make your tears a smile.
As you travel on life's way
With its many ups and downs,
Remember it's quite true to say
One smile is worth a dozen frowns.
Among the world's expensive things,
A smile is very cheap.
And when you give a smile away,
You get one back to keep.
Happiness comes at times to all,
But sadness comes unbidden,
And sometimes a few tears must fall
Among the laughter hidden.
So when friends have sadness on their face
And troubles round them piled,
The world will seem a better place
And all because you smiled.
Another year has passed
A birthday for you is in store
May you find this coming year
Be one with lots of open doors.
Follow your dreams
Remember you can achieve
All that you dream
Whatever your mind can conceive
So this poems brings
wishes for you
in hopes that the coming year
is filled with things you love to do.
Happy birthday Sharmaine
I have to live with myself, and so,
I want to be fit for myself to know;
I want to be able as days go by,
Always to look myself straight in the eye;
I don’t want to stand with the setting sun
And hate myself for the things I’ve done.
I don’t want to keep on a closet shelf
A lot of secrets about myself,
And fool myself as I come and go
Into thinking that nobody else will know
The kind of man I really am;
I don’t want to dress myself up in sham.
I want to go out with my head *****,
I want to deserve all men’s respect;
But here in this struggle for fame and pelf,
I want to be able to like myself.
I don’t want to think as I come and go
That I’m bluster and bluff and empty show.
I never can hide myself from me,
I see what others may never see,
I know what others may never know,
I never can fool myself- and so,
Whatever happens, I want to be
Self-respecting and conscience free.
Sa aking pag-iisa
ikaw lagi ang kasama
sa himig mo’y nadarama
pagkawala ng problema,
inawitan mo ako upang sumaya,
sa malungkot na mundo
ako ay di na nagdusa,
panahon ay lumipas
gabay mo’y di nawala
sinasalo mo maging
ang aking mga luha.
Kung ako ay tatanungin
Gaano ka ba kahalaga?
Kunin ka man sakin
Hahanap hanapin parin…
Galing mo sa pakikisama,
Salamat sa iyo,
Mahal kong gitara.
Paano ka magpahalaga ng isang bagay at paano mo masasabing may karamay ka, salamat at merong gitarang sa akin handang dumamay.
Ala-alang nagdaan kay sarap balikan
Lalo na't kung ikaw ang nilalaman
Ngunit ngayon ako'y nasasaktan
Pagkat wala ka na kahit sa ala-ala
Ala-ala na ating iningatan
Ngunit ako ngayo'y kinalimutan
Ano ba ang kasalanan?
Nang pusong ikaw lang ang mahal
Na tila di makaalpas
Sa mga ala-alang
Tanging ikaw ang nagwakas
Should I feel sorry?
Should I be happy?
Should I feel guilty?
Should I cry?
Should I show mercy to myself?
Should I hurt myself?
Should I feel love?
My heart is broken into pieces
I'm broken-hearted 'cause I let someone breaks my heart
That's my fault
It's my fault
I let my dream vanished
I let my goal disappeared
I let the shining star faded away from the sky
From the blink of an eye she's gone
I'm sorry—my heart is beating for you
I'm sorry—you're always in my mind
Every second, every minute, every hour—a day has passed, a month has passed, a year has passed
You're always in my heart
I'm sorry—if I let myself fall for you
I'm sorry—for falling for you
I'm sorry—if I'm in love with you
I'm sorry—'cause I love you
I'm sorry—for loving you
I'm so sorry—I can't stop myself from loving you
I'm sorry—I truly love you so much
