Kuwan Ni Mary

23 June 2002

Maganda si Mary pero siya’y may Ann-Ann.
Kung tingnan mo siya, ‘di mo malalaman.
Sa pagkilos niya’t kanyang kagandahan,
Maganda si Mary pero k’wan naman.

Babaeng babae ang pagkilos niya.
Lahat ng lalake’y gustong-gusto siya.
Pero ano itong masamang balita,
May gusto si Mary sa katulad niya.

Tunay na babae kung si Mary’ tingnan.
Ang pusong lalake’y ‘di mo malalaman.
Pag-ibig na lihim, alay niya kay Ann-Ann
Na talagang mali sa mata ninuman.

Kagandahan niya ay sayang na sayang.
Lahat ng lalake ay nanghihinayang.
Ang usap-usapan kahit saan ka man,
Maganda si Mary pero siya’y may Ann-Ann.

Not Noticed

15 June 2002

I traveled at the speed of sound
to be with you, to be around.
For me, you are the only crest
that stays pure inside my chest.
But how would you know my way
for you don’t listen to what I say?

I stole a ride on a passing star
just to see you, ‘cause you’re far.
I shower the stars’ light so bright
to make your sad feelings all right.
But how would you notice I cry
for you don’t look up in the sky?

I send love to the whispering air
to make you think that I care.
If the cold breeze touches your skin,
it is me, it is my feeling.
For now, love may not be noticed.
Someday, you’re the one who’ll bless.

Mali

3 June 2002

Ako raw ay mali, palagi na lamang.
‘Di ko naman alam kung ano’ng dahilan.
Iba’t-ibang rason ang ibinibintang.
Walang tama sa ‘kin, puro kamalian.

Kahit ‘di pa gising, pagkai’y handa na.
Sa hapag-kainan, ako’ng nakikita.
Ang aking almusal, pagmumura nila
at talagang busog ang aking tainga.

Kahit sa esk’wela ay problema pa rin.
Mga kaklase ko ay galit sa akin.
Walang kaibiga’t hindi pinapansin.
Buhay ay kaysakit at laging madilim.

Wala na bang tama sa ‘king ginagawa?
Kahit ano’ng gawin, ‘di pa rin tama.
Mali ang sabi mo, mali ang sabi n’ya.
Sino’ng magwawasto, sino nga ba kaya?

Man’s Confession

1 June 2002

I’m sorry girl if you put all your trust in me.
I must admit, I have my own weakness and fault, too.
But why, why I shared these feelings with questions?
I know this is not love, this is only an affection.

I’m sorry girl if you think
those days of yours was wasted.
I must admit, I am afraid of the truth,
the truth that I might be losing you.
I know this feeling is not true,
it’s not worth for me and you.

I’m sorry girl if I have destroyed your future.
I must admit, my ambition must be broken, not yours.
I realized that I love and need my family than you are.
You have no future on me
because we both know we have
our own responsibilities.
