PWEDE BA

new

Nakakamanghang kahit ano ang gawin
Sukdol man sa langit kung kita’y mahalin
Bakit pag-ibig ko tuwing susukatin
Sisidlan mong gamit ‘di kayang punuin

Naglahong muli sa yakap mo ang higpit
Maging sa halik mo’y nawala ang init
Kung hinahangad mo na muling umalis
Samo’y sa pakiusap ika’y makinig

Bago sana kita muling palayain
Pwede ba nating pagsikapang alamin
Bakit ningas-kugon ang pag-ibig natin
Ayaw magluwat ang alab sa damdamin

Ngunit bakit nais mong ako’y iwanan
Kung sa makalawa’y muling babalikan
Pwede ba kasing aminin mo na lamang
Ligayang hanap mo ako ang may tangan

Pwede bang sa akin ay iyong aminin
Sobra bang mahigpit kung kita’y yakapin
May pagkukulang bang dapat kong punuin
Kung may nais sabihi’y h’wag nang kimkimin

Palabas sa pinto hirap kang humakbang
Dahil ang nais mo kita ay pigilan
Humarap ka’t mata ko sana’y titigan
Lumapit ka…yakapin ako at hagkan

Usapang ito’y h’wag na nating pagtagalin
Pwede namang atin na lamang tanggapin
Ang magkalayo’y ‘di natin kakayanin
Kaylangan kita’t ako’y kaylangan mo rin

(Mula sa awiting “Just Once” ni James Ingram)

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!
