A Chance To Be With You

| |

In our time I got so tough

Even things were into rough

I just can't close my eyes to make us both alright

To the happiness we had

And the memories we've shared

Leaving it all behind is not an easy test.

 

Refrain:

Cause no matter what I have today

The reason is for you, for me to say

That I'll never give up

When I'm down and hopelessly

 

Chorus:

I'm just an ordinary man

Falling in love for the first time

Cause every second takes a chance

To be with you

Isinilang akong Normal

Ngunit ako daw ay lumaking Abnormal

 

Pinalaking Diretso, Ngunit

Lumaking nahilig sa Otso-Otso

 

Sa Isip,Sa Salita, at Sa Gawa

Ako daw ay Unting-unting Nagwawala!

 Para sa mga kaibigan nating Becky ang naisulat ko.
 
 Fatale ang saya pag may kaibigang Becky!  
 Cool

aking tinanong

bughaw na kalangitan:

bakit patuloy

ang pagbuhos ng ulan

gayong tirik ang araw?

 

biglang bumulong

ang malamig na hangin:

upang ang lupa

ay ‘di magwatak-watak

at tuluyang magliyab.

To the Lake

|

As if shards of glass,

the crisp, brown leaves

scattered all over the

yellow grass reflect

the sunlight: resting on

it is suicide. So I cut

through the blinding

field and bear the sharp

crackles beneath my feet,

and like a barefooted  

daredevil treading on

Saan na nga ba?

|

 

Bakit  tayo humantong sa ganito?

Pagmamahalan nati’y biglang naglaho.

Anong nangyari sa samahang nabuo?

If you fall, I'll always be there to catch you.

On the Bay: a Tanka

|

 

I am not afraid

Of the furious black sea

But of the boulders:

The earth that might fall on me

On this lonely windy day!

Kenji's Blues

|

The rice field is now a Fantasy Land,

Where farmers are gamblers and clowns.

 

The sky is a white, concrete ceiling,

Where constellations are of blue neon:

 

Pegasus prancing on golden leaves,

Entertaining the gluttonous thieves.

a thought after reading Miyazawa Kenji's poetry.

AKO!

| |

Sa kalagitnaan ng bagyo’t hinagpis

 

Ang puso ko ay laging tumatangis

Na sana ako’y iyong kalagan

Mula sa gapos ng kasalanan

 

Yaring isipa’y sadyang makitid

At may mga pusong minsa’y manhid

Mga labing mapang himagsik

mga taong sa sariliy sobrang bilib.

 

Mark Anthony delos Santos
