SIYA

holding-hand

(Inspired by Air Supply’s “Come What May”)

Palaisipan akong mahirap arukin
Isang suliranin na dapat lutasin
Sakit sa ulo na mahirap liripin
Ngunit siya ako’y kayang unawain

Sa mga sandaling ako’ nahihibang
Siya’y nasa tabi’t ‘di ako iiwan
Kapag ako’y nagapi ng karuwagan
Nang tapang sa kanya ako’y humihiram

Inibig ako nang walang agam-agam
Pagtangi niya’y walang gamit na sukatan
At kaylan ma’y hindi ako hinusgahan
Kapintasa ko’y pinagkibit-balikat lang

Kapag hinampas ng alon ng kahinaan
Lumilisan ako nang walang paalam
Basta ako’y kanya lamang hahayaan
Batid niyang siya’y aking babalikan

Sa tulirong isip siya ang katinuan
Sa bugtong ng buhay siya ang kasagutan
Kamay niya’y mahigpit nang hahawakan
Habang buhay ako’y ‘di na bibitawan

 

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!
