Maging Akin Ka Sana

man-woman

Lumapit ka sana’t kamay ko’y abutin
Ibubulong kong tanong iyong sagutin
Maaari bang ikaw ay maging akin?
Maari bang ako’y iyong ibigin?

Tanging sa ‘yo nakatuon ang paningin
Sa isip hindi kita kayang burahin
Pumayag ka sanang ika’y maging akin
Habang nabubuhay kita’y sasambahin

Lumapit ka na at ibulong sa akin
Batid ko na meron kang nais sabihin
Mga ngiti mo’y huwag gamiting tabing
Upang itago ang sinaktang damdamin

Pahintulutan sana na kita’y mahalin
Tulungang nakaraa’y iyong limutin
Bumaong tinik sa puso’y bubunutin
Ulap sa langit mo’y aking hahawiin

Mapait na kahapon huwag nang balikan
Heto ang palad ko mahigpit mong hawakan
Masuyong luha mo’y aking pupunasan
Mithing ligaya kita’y hahandugan

Maging akin ka ang tanging panalangin
Pag-ibig sa puso muling pasikatin
Pahintulutan sanang kita’y makapiling
Payagan akong ika’y paligayahin

(Mula sa kantang “Be My Lady” ni Martin Nievera)

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!
