Ina

Isang makabagbag damdaming likha ni Crystal Ardecer

Ina na siyang ilaw ng tahanan
Inang nagsilbing sandalan
Nang mga luhang galing sa aking paaralan.
At galing din sa mga umaaway sa akin na mga kabataan.
Hindi mo ako pinabayan
At ako'y iyong pinatahan.

Simula pagkabata
Ikaw na ang aking kasama
Sa mga iyak. lungkot at saya.

Hanggang sa paglaki ko
Kita ko lagi ang suporta mo
Maliit man o malaki ito

Pero bakit ganoon?
Sadyang mapaglaro ang panahon
Di ko alam kung saan ako papatungo
Nung kami'y nilisan mo.

Ina, Nay, Ma
Asan ka na?
Bakit mo kami iniwan?
Sino magluluto sa akin ng umagahan? Sino na magpupunas ng mukha kong basa ng mga luha?
Sino na sa aki'y gigising sa umaga?
Sino magpapaalala na ang i.d ko ay dala?

Inang nagsilbing kaibigan at kapatid
At naglaho lang yun dahil sa panahong sobrang tipid
Sino na sa aki'y mangugulit?
Sino na sa aki'y magpapahagikgik?
Sino na sa aki'y magsasabing "anak laban lang wag ka magpapadaig.."

Sa bawat gabi na ako'y nagluluksa
Tanging alaala na lang ang aking dala
Naiinggit sa mga kabataang naglalakad... kasama ang kanilang ina
Sa mga kasing edad kong kasama sa profile ang kanilang ina

Natatandaan mo pa ba nung ako'y iyong kinukutya?
Hindi ko yung pinansin makita lang kitang masaya
Hindi pinapakitang ako'y naiinis kasi iyon ang yong ikinatutuwa
Nagulat ka nga nung ikay tumigil at biglang ngumiti.

Ma miss na kita
Ang iyong pag-aalaga
Ang iyong mga tawa
Luto mong ibat-iba
Pati na rin yung minsang niyakap kita at sinabi "Ma I Love You"

Am I Asking Too Much

A heartfelt and moving piece to a very special someone this Heart Day.


photo: Rose

I'm not asking you to kiss me each morning
I could settle seeing you so charming
When you are away
All I need is to know I am in your prayer

All I need is to know that you're fine
I'm fine knowing you're that mine
Even If we are distance for so long apart
All I need is to know that I'm in your heart

I'm not asking you that we go dancing in the rain
All I need is for us to laugh again and again
I'm not asking you to seek each star for you to explore
All I need is to know that I'm the only one that you adore

I'm not asking you to make the birds swim and make the fish fly!
All I need is not to hear the word 'Goodbye'
I'm not asking you to be like a colorful peacock nor a graceful swan
All I need is you tell me that I'm the sweetest one

I'm not asking you to walk a thousand mile!
All I need is a simple smile
I'm not asking you to make the trees blue!
All I need is to know that you're true

I'm not asking you to live with me in a castle of gold
All I need is for you to get me out from the cold
I'm not asking you for your attention
All I need is genuine affection

I'm not asking you to be a gem so priceless
All I need is a gentle caress
I'm not asking you to be the princess of my world
all I need is to hear you saying an encouraging word

I'm not asking we make a week eight days
All I need is for you being there on rainy days
I'm not asking you to say I'm the best
All I need is to feel complete.

Paalam

"Paalam" by Jazy

Siguro nga napakadaling iwan ako
Siguro nga napakadaling talikuran ako
Pero anong magagawa ko? Napaka simple ko
Pasensiya na ngunit di ko sinsadyang magkagusto sa iyo.

Pasensiya kana kung mas pinili mong lisanin ang pahina ko
Bilang libro ng buhay mo ako'y nalungkot dahil sa kagustuhan mo.
Ikaw lamang ang lalaking nag lakas ng loob na basahin ako,
Ikaw lamang ang lalaking di nag sawang basahin ang ugali ko.

Ikaw lamang yung lalaking nag pakita na mahal ako.
Isa kang LAPIS na patuloy na sumusulat sa mundo ko,
Patuloy na umuukit sa puso ko,
Ngunit ako'y humihingi ng kapatawaran sa iyo

Dahil hindi ko naibigay ang pahina na pinaka gusto mo,
Yun yung MAGING TAYO.

Patawad sa aking mga nagawang kasalanan sa iyo,
Nagawa mong punitin ang pinaka gusto kung pahina sa buhay ko
Yun yung maging MAGKAIBIGAN TAYO.

Magkaiba tayo ng GUSTO pero parehas tayo nang nararamdaman sa mundong ito.
Ako'y isinarado mo ramdam ko ang mga kamay mong humahalik sa buhay ko.
Ikinandado mo ko dahil alam mong yun ang tama para sa iyo
Salamat dahil naging parte ka ng buhay ko. Paalam sayo.

A Rose to Bloom

To my goddaughter:

photo: Jairel

Delicate bud that I know so well,
My duty was to watch you grow
Such a young and precious thing
It’s time to spread those wings
Time to hear you sing your song of life.

Unfold those petals
The ones which are shaping
Making you the beauty that you are.

Fragrant and slowly blossoming
Gaily dancing in a banter of breezes
Placing smiles on faces
And pleasing others who
Gaze upon such a wondrous site.

By no means perfect (for nothing ever is)
But in my eyes you’re really quite unique
And to those who might just fall in love with you

You will stun them with
The charms that you’ll
Soon learn are yours
As you reach your element
Grow into the fullest of your bloom.

A Beauty to Adore

A poem written as an Anniversary gift for my ever beautiful and thoughtful wife.


Oh! How I love your beautiful face
That occupies a special place in my heart.
And your lips that’s always so fresh
Kissing it I consider a novel art.

Oh! I love how you walk
A sight to behold
Like a dancing diva on a swing
Each step contains a sting.

Oh! How I love your gentle voice
And listening to each thoughtful talk
That gives me a reason to rejoice
To face life’s hostile walk.

Love, just as I’ve promised from the start
I’ll always appreciate and adore
Your beauty in my heart
Today, tomorrow and forever.

What a Day Brings

photo: ME

Days teach me
To always dream
Though it may never come true
But that's the best way
To live life through

Days teach me
To dream so high
There's no harm in trying one
Never give up and always try
Never let go or say goodbye

Days teach me
That when there is darkness
For sure, dawn is the next
And when everything is so tiring
Definitely, there would be time to rest

Days teach me
To always care for a friend
Always be true and never pretend
Always love with no end
And the broken hearts try to mend

Days teach me
Never to feel the hate
Always be confident and never hesitate
Always believe in fate
Holding on to my faith

Days teach me
That lovers meet and stay together
And others are apart
So if you are one who have been left behind
Don't cry and suffer... just search for a new start

Days teach me
The past I must forget
And nothing needs my regret
To open my heart and forgive
Cause that will help me to survive and live

Days teach me
To always offer my helping hand
Always be a Good Samaritan
And never doubt in people when there is no proof
And always try to understand

Days teach me
Not to be shy
If I have done something wrong
But to admit it and be proud that I have learned
A lesson that will help me to be strong

Para sa Aking Ina

A simple yet a very heartfelt Mother's Day poetry piece

photo: Jazy

Ngayon nakatayo ako sa harapan mo Ma
Lubos na nagpapasalamat sa iyong mga nagawa
Tanging ngiti mo lamang ang aking nakikita
Alam kung nahihirapan ka na,
Ngunit mas pinili mong mag patuloy pa
Kaya hinahangaan kita, Mama.

Ikaw ang nagsisilbing ilaw sa aming buhay
Mga ngiti mong parang bituin
Mga tawa mong nagpapangiti sa amin
Salamat, salamat dahil binigay ka sa akin
Alam ko na Alam mo na minsan gusto mo nang sumuko
Pero di mo matiis kasi gusto mo matupad ang mga pangarap ko.

Di mo ba alam ma na nangangarap din ako
Nangangarap na sana hanggang huli kasama kita at yakap ko
Na sana makita mo kong masayang tumanda ng dahil sa iyo.

I LOVE YOU SO MUCH MOMMY

Na kahit tumanda ka na
Aalalayan ka pa rin
Kahit umiiyak ka na
Pupunasan ko pa rin mga kuha mo
Kahit lisanin mo man ang mundo?
Nandito ka pa rin
Sa puso ko na
Walang sawang
Nagbibigay ng lakas at tibay sa akin.

An original composition of Jazy
