I'll Wipe the Clouds Away

Hawiin ko Ang Ulap

I’ll Wipe the Clouds Away


The cloud looks threatening

Teardrops threaten to keep coursing

All I wish for you is

Your smile will appear upon your lips


Don’t worry about tomorrow

Predicaments, above all sorrow

This is just part of our existence

In life this is our subsistence


Let’s go and be merry

Through the storms we will surely see

It certainly finds its way

In cruising it goes with you everyday


You really can’t help at times

Misery is lurking oftentimes

So always keep in mind

This is occasional, don’t be wind


My only wish for you

Take heed of this memento

So use it to your advantage

That blissfulness is a choice, at your own vintage...


Hawiin ko ang ulap


Ulap may naglalambong

Luha ay nais bumalong

Ang nais ko sana’y

Ngiti sa iyong labi sumilay


Hindi dapat alintana

Mga problema at pakikibaka

Ito ay bahagi lamang

Ng buhay ito nakaambang



Halina magsaya ka

Iwan ang problema

Ito ay darating tuwina

Sa paglalayag kasabay mo na


Ganun talaga minsan

Ang hinagpis ay di maiwasan

Kaya dapat tandaan

Pana – panahon lang yan…



Kaya ang tanging hiling ko

Tula ay pakinggan mo

Para iyong mapagtanto ang dahilan

Na ang kaligayahan ay sariling kapasyahan…

I wish that I understood your language. Poetry is always better in someones native language.

..love the title very much and also how you put the words into your own native language ..... sublime is the word of the day - and when I read these words - I thought to myself - you own that word of the day - sublime.

Eiddwen,

thank you Eiddwen for being a great friend also and for showing me that we can bridge distance and share kinship not acquired by nearness or togetherness...

The poem “I’ll wipe the clouds away”

by RACINIWA tells us that there’s always

someone behind us to help and to comfort. My interpretation to this is a story about friendship bec. I can relate my friends to it.

My friends always there for me in times of happy moments and trouble times…..

And FRIENDS also are the one who we can lean on

By reading your poem ma’am I can remember how important having friends in our lives…..

Life is like a carousel sometimes up, sometimes down so don't worry of the problems that comes into your way, because in our life we all have a mission, like the competition we want to win, but in the end we loose.Make it like a

yes Ailen you're right...don't worry for in the morrow the sun will wipe away the blue...thanks for dropping by...

(ma'am continue)

Make it like a game,you should know how to handle everything, because happiness is the best part after all.JUst like this, even if the sunn refuse to shine I will still wake and wait patiently for the day of my freedom, because having a failure is not the hendrance of our goals in life.WE will wake up not because we just want it, but because we want to explore, and we want to experiment we want to be successful.IT means learn to stand up when you feel down, wait patiently for the right time and don't think too much of what you have done as long as your still smiling and breathing because the blissfulness is a choice, at your own vintage......

Those cycles of life we all attend are shown so beautifully in your words, your exquiset poetic expression: "Predicaments...just part of our existance." I too liked the video song..."God shall wipe all tears away."
