Kay Hirap Paniwalaan

(Mula sa kantang “Never Thought” ni Dan Hill)

Giliw…
Puwede bang hawakan kita?
Upang matiyak ko na totoo ka
Para kasing panaginip ka lamang
Panaginip na tumapos…
nagsilbing tuldok sa aking mga bangungot.

Pangarap na tumapos sa lahat ng aking mga bangungot.

Hindi ako inakalang ako’y magmamahal
Nang kasing-sidhi ng pagmamahal ko sa iyo.
Mahirap paniwalaan, ‘di ba?
Pero iyan ang totoo.
Labis ko ring pinagtatakhan
Kung bakit sobra-sobra kitang kaylangan.

Mahal na mahal kita.
Bakit nga ba?

Giliw… puwede ba kitang hawakan?
Puwede bang makitang muli ang mga ngiti mo
Ngiting parang mga tala
Talang nagbigay liwanag sa dating madilim kong mundo.

Pahintulutan sana akong masdan
Ang taglay mong kagandahan
Kagandahang walang salitang makakapaglarawan.

Akalain mong nagmahal ako ng ganito.
Kay hirap paniwalaan
Pero totoo!
Ikaw ang tibok sa aking puso
Ikaw ang dahilan kung bakit ako buhay.

Hangarin kang naisakatuparan
Labis-labis kitang kaylangan
Mahirap paniwalaan
Di ba!
Pero iyan ang katotohanan.

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, and essays, when I do research, seeing them completed gives me immense joy and satisfaction. I don't write for cash incentives, "likes," and "praises." I would be thankful if I'll have them but the happiness and sense of fulfillment I feel when completing my works are my real rewards. Is teaching difficult? No! 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!
