Mahal kumusta ka na?!

Ansakit naman ng biro ng tadhana

Na makitang buntis ka na

Ngunit para sayo ako ay masaya

Pero mas masaya sana

Kung ako ang naging ama

Subalit ngayon ay iinumin ko’ng aking mga luha

Kung sana noo’y di ako naunahan ng kaba

Nung ika’y malaya pa

Malamang tayo ang itinadhana

Pero ngayon ay huli na

At wala na’kong magagawa pa

Kundi ibulong sa sarili ko ang “mahal kita”

At tanungin ka ng “kumusta?”



Karwaheng angkop sa aking sinisinta

Ipangsusundo sa naghihintay kong prinsesa

Aking lilinisin at pakikintabin

Angkop sa iyong samyong dala ng hangin


Hatak ng mga kabayong sugo ng langit

Kita’y ililibot sa aking kahariang walang ligalig

Ligaya sa’king puso sayo’y ipababatid

At ang aking tunay at wagas na pag-ibig

(Sagut ko ken tay biag toy biag ko)


Arig mo tay linnaaw ti bigbigat

Nalamiis nga pul-oy a mangag-agep toy rupak

Palayupoy mo a bang-ar barukung ku

Ken liwliwa ditoy riknak ken pusok


Sika ti inana ti kararwak

Ti naimas a samiweng ditoy lapayag

Sika ti inaldaw a sagut kanyak ti Dios Apo a namarsua

Baro a biag ken naimbag a namnama

Bagong Umaga


Pusong lamog sa bugbog
Isipang animo’y butu-butong itinaktak at sinupsop

Lahat na sa akin binigay mo
Maliban lamang ang iyong puso

Sa kalangitan pilit kang inabot
Tumalon, lumipad at nagpaimbulog
Lumagapak sa lupa na tangan sa tikom na kamao ang nakuhang liwanag


Ako’y pansamantalang mamamahinga
Upang makaipon ng lakas para sa bagong umaga

Tuloy ang laban!
Hindi magugupo ang Bataan
Pag-ibig kong ito ay lalaban
At ikaw ay hinding-hindi susukuan!

The Rope to Heaven (In the Absence of a Stairway)

Photo from gettyimages.com.au

I saw her face beyond the clouds
Then she looked at me, we both knew it’s gotta be love
It prompted me to reach for the sky
I closed my eyes and reached up high
But all I grasped is the air
And when I opened my eyes she wasn’t there.

Down came a rope from heaven
With twisted knots along its length
God appeared, touched my shoulders and said:
“You want her my son? I have no ladder, this is all I have.”
I said “I know Sir it is but a crack.
But it would be enough for me to start.”

Up and up went my climb
I passed mountain peaks where the eagles glide
I then saw her eyes so tender
I told myself I have nothing but my best to render.
Because I want her
Because I love her
Because I’d take her…

Panis Na Laway


Napanis na ang laway ko sinta,
Mata ko’y namunga na ng mga muta,
Kanina ako’y bagong ahit ngayon balbas-sarado na
Namuti na ang mga mata ko
Kakaantay sa mga katagang: mahal mo rin ako

Sumuko na si Joma Sison,
Naging pari na si Isnilon Hapilon
Nagmadre na rin si Kristetay
At si Trillanes ay di na ngawa ng ngawa.
Ngunit para parin akong si Doggie
Na sa kanyang prinsesa’y nakabantay…

Kailan, hanggang kelan mahal ko?
Kelan mo lilingunin ang aba kong puso?!
Na tanging handog ay pagsinta’t pagsuyo
Na hinahangad lamang ang matamis mong oo.

I Love You For All the Moments In Between

I love you in silence…

Not just when things are merry
Not just when the situation elicits chuckles
Not just when you’re euphoric

I love you in silence…

Not just when you’re in pain
Not just when discouragement sets in
Not just when you’re confused and afraid

I love you
For all those moments in between
For all the mundane
For all the ordinary moments:

  • When there’s neither joy nor pain
  • When there’s neither sunshine nor rain

I love you in silence
When words become superfluous
I love you in silence –
When both our hearts freely speak.

“Now a soft kiss – Aye, by that kiss, I vow an endless bliss.” – John Keats

kiss me beneath the thunderclaps –
…and the howling wind will cease
…and the raindrops in the air will freeze
and the violence that rages on
will be calm as the early morn
…where the little girls won’t weep
…but resume their peaceful sleep

kiss me in the midst of a world war –
…and the bullets will cease their flight
…and armaments lose their might
and the violence that rages on
will be calm as the early morn
…where soldiers and rebels will drop their weapons
…and embrace each other like brothers

kiss me when I’m worn and weak –
…when this man can exert no more
…when the world becomes too much for my shoulders
and the violence that rages on
will be calm as the early morn
…there newfound strength awaits
…to stare at life again at its face

kiss me baby…
the faintest touch of your lips on mine
and your warm hug so divine
our eyes are closed but sees in the open
on earth a tranquil piece of heaven

kiss me my dear…
that magical moment
when love conquers all
and all of this life’s mess
in their perfect places fall
the earth stands still
and gives way to infinity
… every time you kiss me

Someday You’ll Make A Great Mom…

“I deeply regret it my son;
But you will never be that man…”

“I deeply regret it my son;
But you will never be that man…”

Someday you’ll make a great mom –
With your wit and practical sense
A natural born mother who’ll hush her child
When the world is too loud,
They will hear your silent songs
And be lulled in peace and love
As much as when I felt defeated already
You would point to another side of reality
And what seemed to be a glaring check mate
Would be my most triumphant escape.

Someday you’ll make a great mom –
For you are passionate, yet has a love so tender
I know our children will be filled
With your hugs and kisses so sweet.
Such as when you looked at me like I am all there is
And the way you got jealous of my acquaintances
The way you said you’d give your all without any hesitation
For the love of your life which God has given.

Someday you’ll make a great mom –
With your lovely sense of humor
You would make the kids’ heart light,
When things are gloomy your wits will burn bright,
That will drive away the blackest of the night
As such is the way you instill in my face a genuine smile
Reversing it from all the gloom and wry…

Someday you’ll make a great mom –
Yes it turned out true
As I look at you along with your daughter and son.
How you did it I will never know;
But this I believe much so:
That you had been and still is a great mom
And a loving wife beside the most blessed man
That even as I pleaded with the heavens for you beforehand
Which He heard and the Lord He did respond:
“I deeply regret it my son;
But you can never be that man…”

First Love Never Dies (Insert The Law of Thermo-Love-Dynamics Here)

And since the “we” that we once were is already a thing of the past, may I say that you were my first love? Yes you were my first love.

And first love never dies.

Yes, that love never died Donna. It just obeyed the law of thermo-love-dynamics: Love is neither created nor destroyed. It just transcends one form to another.

Hi Donna,

I can’t believe I’m finally writing you this after almost two decades now.

So hello 🙂

I must say I’m excited to know how you’ve been doing, and to know how you sound and how you look like now. Do you still have that lovely bangs? And of course that dimple that I will never forget!

Haha! Hey I don’t mean anything ok? I’m just a buddy here wishing you’re all safe and alright.

So where can I start? Let me just recall…

The school year was ‘98-’99 way back in high school. I was a junior then and you were a senior. Man am I so happy when you became my first girlfriend! I really didn’t expect you to give me a resounding “yes” to be honest. But thank you for giving me a chance. It had been a month right? Thank you so much for that wonderful month.

I just had a lot of worries back then. I don’t know how long I can keep you interested and hopefully “in love”. But yeah things turned the way they did. I was just a boy back then with a fragile heart and mind, and you telling me that it was all over for reasons I can’t figure out was a bit too much for me to swallow at that time.

And I’m really sorry when you saw me one time throwing up and all over because of too much alcohol that they had to sit me on a bicycle to take me to my boarding house. Hahaha! I may not have known how you felt that time but I’m sure it’s everything but fitting for a lovely lady to feel.

It’s all on me don’t worry. There’s only myself to blame. I’m really sorry. I was very immature and a very clingy boyfriend – a nightmare for any young lady I’d guess. And it was my first time to drink actually. Nobody told me that Gilbey’s and lime is not to be sipped at the same rate as downing soda.

After that, there had been total silence in between us. Social media wasn’t yet in its full bloom back then and so I really got excited that seven years later, you surprised me with a call (you even shared me the good news that you were 3 months pregnant) to offer your condolences when tatay died in July 2006. I really appreciate your effort for calling me at a time when we were in bereavement and trying to cope from our loss. And I’m really surprised and happy that you remembered me.

And by the way, you were able to meet tatay while he was still alive and kicking right? And may I also take this opportunity to apologize if you were somewhat embarrassed when he called you his manugang (daughter in law). Hahaha! Either he was in a good mood or he just wanted to break the ice, so I apologize 🙂

I’d like you to know that I don’t feel contempt or rage or anything like that over what happened in the past. I’ll say it again, it’s all my fault. So I am sending you my deepest apologies for all the inconveniences I might have caused you when there was an “us”.

Things might not have worked back then but I believe God had been very loving to both of us that He blessed us with more than what our minds can conceive. You have your man and a bundle (bundles?) of joy and I have a loving wife and 2 cool kids. And by the way I really do hope that you’re all ok. I’m praying that you all are.

I’m just excited to know how you’re doing now. And if I’ll be able to see a current photo of you then that would be a big, big bonus.

And since the “we” that we once were is already a thing of the past, may I say that you were my first love? Yes you were my first love.

And first love never dies.

Yes, that love never died Donna. It just obeyed the law of thermo-love-dynamics: Love is neither created nor destroyed. It just transcends one form to another.

And that transcended to the “me” now, wishing for your happiness and the welfare of you and your family.

As I said earlier, this is me just saying hi and wishing that everything’s going on fine. A friend if you will…

And lastly, I just want to share you a timeless song below. This was the song that played for quite some time in my head when you were gone. And no, just forget about the lyrics hehehe…


‘Till here Donna. God bless 🙂


For love and rock & roll,
