Nang Ako’y Ngitian

man and woman

(Inspired by Air Supply’s “Two Less Lonely People In The World”)

 Buwan  sa gabi’y nakatago sa ulap
Araw sa umaga ay ayaw sumikat
Laging bigo at sa lungkot nasasadlak
Ayaw nang umasa’t dala nang mangarap

 Ayaw sa kabigua’y muling malugmok

Bakit nanaising sa luha’y malunod

Mundo ko sa pag-ibig ‘di na iinog

Puso marahil ‘di na muling titibok

 

Ngunit nakita ka’t ako’y nginitian

Tumigil ako at kita’y pinagmasdan

Ngiti mong nagkukubli ng kalungkutan

Parang nag-aanyayang kita’y damayan

 

Atubili ma’t maraming agam-agam

Ngumiti rin ako’t kita’y nilapitan

Nang kamay mo’y mahigpit na hinawakan

Balikat ko’y masuyo mong sinandalan

 

Sa malambot mong pisngi ako’y humalik

Ang tugon mo rito’y yakap na mahigpit

Sa puso’y tumibok muli ang pag-ibig

Minithing ligaya sa wakas nakamit

 

Mga puso nating bihasang mabigo

Nilaro ng tadhana bago nagtagpo

Nang kita’y matagpuan saka natanto

Sa ‘yo nakalaan itong aking puso

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!
