Huli Na Ang Lahat

boy

(Inspired by Bruno Mar’s “When I was Your Man”)

Kamang higaan ko biglaang lumuwag
Walang katabi’t sa aki’y yumayakap
Kanta natin noon na dulot ay galak
Kapag ngayon nadinig ako’y naiiyak

Kapag pangalan mo’y aking nadidinig
Magugunita naglaho mong pagibig
Walang magagawa kundi ang pumikit
Luha’y aagos magsisikip ang dibdib

Kung yakap sa iyo’y aking hinigpitan
Kung panahon ko sa iyo’y inilaan
Kung ng bulaklak kita ay hinandugan
Baka sakaling ako’y ‘di mo iniwan

Nakalimutang kita’y pahalagaan
Pinabayaa’t hinayaang masaktan
Hinayaang magdusa’t mata’y luhaan
Kaya’t nagpasya ka na ako’y iwanan

Nang mawala ka kita’y pilit hinanap
Ninais kong sa iyo’y magpaliwanag
Nanalanging hindi pa huli ang lahat
Tanggapin muli ako at mapatawad

Sa pasyalan natin kita’y pinuntahan
Nagbakasaling kita’y matagpuan
Sa nasumpungan labis akong nasaktan
Yakap ka ng iba’t masuyong hinahagkan

About HARDPEN

Teacher-Writer Hardpen is my nom de plume. My real name is Massuline Antonio Dupaya Ligaya. Many times I was asked the question, "Why do you write?" I don't write for rewards nor adulation. When I write poems, stories or essays, seeing them completed gives me immense joy and satisfaction. The happiness and sense of fulfillment I feel when completing my works are my rewards. When I teach, I don't work but I play. The classroom is my playground, the students are my playmates, and the subject is our toy. Proud to be me! Proud to be a FILIPINO! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
