Breeze


Whisper

Your whisper is as soft as the breeze

It leaves a tingling sensation, a caress

Your pitfall, draw me like an abyss

A void, we can’t escape, my heart’s a mess


Oceans keep as apart, you’re miles away

I can’t escape, can’t help but be lonely

This heart feels nothing but worry

Oftentimes, I feel so weary


Yet as I gaze at the stars,

And think of the multitude of scars

This heart has boldly taken

And long dreamed to be awaken


One day, when I’ll open my eyes and see

There is no face I want to behold

The days and distance are nothing untold

If only, you’ll be here beside me


In order to wipe away these tears

That is coursing through my fears

And once again, I’ll hear you whisper

My love, I will always be HERE…


(Filipino Translation)

BULONG


Napakalamyos ng iyong bulong

Lumikha ng banayad na ugong

Ngunit ang mahirap, nasa malayo ka

Puso ko’y laging nangungulila


Karagatan, kabundukan nasa ating pagitan

At ako’y nabahid ng kalungkutan

At sa puso maiwasanang mangamba

Nakakapagod kaya ang mag isa


Ngunit ng tingalain mga bituin sa langit

Mga pasakit sa buhay iwaksing pilit

Itong abang katawan walang takot humarap

Kaya hindi maiwasang sa aking pagising mangarap


Isang araw, sa aking pagdilat

Walang ibang mukha makita sa aking pagmulat

Ang pagitan natin ay mapaparam

Kung ikaw andito, mawala lahat ng agam – agam


Pahirin mo sana aking mga luha

Patuloy na dumadaloy dahil sa nangamba

Sana minsan aking mapakinggan

Sabihin mo sa akin, hindi mo ako iiwan…

Every time I publish a hub I wait impatiently for your comments. And then I had a thought (for once in my life): I should comment on your hubs.

What is the Fillipino language based on? It is very beautiful, reminds me of Hawaiian, or Indonesian, which would make sense.

"Yet as I gaze at the stars,

And think of the multitude of scars

This heart has boldly taken

And long dreamed to be awaken"

This is such a beautiful line. It brings memories of a multitude of emotions from long ago.

Thanks for a beautiful hub raciniwa.
