I dream about you,
Even though I dont sleep.

you ask me if i love you.
so i say
“i feel like i do.”
but sometimes my feelings lie to me
and i don’t want to do that to you.

the wrong one
will find you in peace
and end up leaving you in pieces

only the right one
can find you in pieces
and guide you to peace
Being your slave, what should I do but tend
Upon the hours and times of your desire?
I have no precious time at all to spend,
Nor services to do, till you require.
Nor dare I chide the world-without-end hour,
Whilst I, my sovereign, watch the clock for you,
Nor think the bitterness of absence sour
When you have bid your servant once adieu.
Nor dare I question with my jealous thought
Where you may be, or your affairs suppose,
But, like a sad slave, stay and think of naught
Save where you are, how happy you make those.
    So true a fool is love that in your will,
    Though you do any thing, he thinks no ill.

Pablo Neruda
I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way

than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.

Sa tuwing nakikita kita
na may kasamang iba
Okay lang ako

Sa tuwing nakikita ko kayo
na naghahalikan
Okay lang ako

Sa tuwing naririnig ko
ang mga salitang "mahal kita"
na para sakanya
Okay lang ako

Sa tuwing nakikita ko
ang mga litrato ninyong dalawa
Okay lang ako

Sa tuwing magkayakap kayo
sa harap ko
Okay lang ako

Sa tuwing malungkot ako
Okay lang ako

Sa tuwing nasasaktan ako
Okay lang ako

Sa tuwing may minamahal
kang iba
Okay lang ako

Mahal kita at Okay lang ako

basta't masaya ka
Okay lang ako

Why did I
Suffer myself
On things
That hardly matter?

I have a tragic past
And sometimes
It finds me in the present
But in life
It's childish to sulk
Over it all

Many times
I wished I could die
And the worst part
is that I even tried

While  letting go is harder
Holding on hurts so much more

Why did I ever fret
Over heartbreak
Over loss
Over silly things?

Now my path is getting clearer
And life shoots me down
Every time that I stand
And when I start to drown
I remember who I am

I am not going to
Roll over and accept my fate
I will fight against this world
Until my last day
The bitter hate
Won't slow me down
Because I am much stronger now
