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?”

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

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…
