Andaming nag bago, noh?
Mga bagong mukha
Mga naalala ko na lamang sa mukha
Ano ba ulit ang iyong ngalan?

Marami na rin palang namaalam
Mga namalagi sa ibang lugar
Mga lumisan sa mundong ibabaw
Ikaw, saan ka na nananahan?

At itong mga dating maliliit na bata
Ngayon ay nagsilakihan na
Ang karamihan ay napariwara
At ang iilan ay hindi nawalan ng pag asa

Masyado siguro akong naging abala
Upang hindi mapuna
Kilala pa rin kaya ako
Ng komunidad na kinalakihan ko?

Here I long
For apologies from
The people
Who offended me

Here I ask
For explanations from
The people
Who treated me poorly

But deep inside
I know
The one
That needs to be sorry

Hence here I am
Asking for
I am sorry

'Cause I can' t understand why
But He said, "I am here"

And I asked how
Yet He said, "let me show you"

For in this suffering I long
Not for an answer but a companion

I forgive you
All who abandoned me
Left me alone
Forsaken me

I forgive you
Those who accused me
Made rumors
Slandered me

I forgive you
All who betrayed me
Left me hanging
Rejected me

And at last!
I forgive
the hardest one
I forgive you, myself

There she is
Beautiful, as always
The one who left
The woman who abandoned me

Here I am
Grasping for air

And in that split moment
I ask myself
If Love were in my situation,
What would Love do?
Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails.

I hate this day
The 13th death anniversary
Of my beloved grandfather

I do not like this day
The day I backslided
Six years ago

I am learning to admire this day
For today is the day
Of small beginnings

I really love this day
My creator gave me life
Indeed, it is a happy birth day

I still remember
The days of loneliness
You found me and promised
That you will never leave me nor forsake me

I remember
The days of embracement
You let me be part of a community
And even become one of the leaders of it

I remember
The days of exploration
You sent me to different nations
For me to grow and experience You more

I remember
The days of rejoicing
You helped me to become a civil engineer
Despite my shortcomings

I remember
The days of failures
You did not grow tired of me
Even though everyone left me

I remember
The days of faithlessness
You still remain faithful
Because you cannot disown Yourself

I remember
The days of mourning
You were there to listen
To my never-ending self-pity

And now,
The days of deliverance
I remember You
The One who saves
