Di ba’t dugo n’ya’y ipinanlinis
Sa pagkatao nating madungis
Kusang loob buhay ibinuwis
Nang tayo’y makapiling sa langit


Love’s indeed a roller coaster,
Treacherous switchback it bestrides.
It did throw you up and under,
You grinned and cried yet loved the ride.

Just ride again when love rolls down,
Get ready for the twists and turns.
Buckle up in delight be drowned,
Before downwards the ride returns.

Hold still…roll on with the flow
Expect the twizzles and the twines.
Just sit tight don’t ever let go
Whirl with the twirls and you’ll be fine
