Heart's Song

Just for Today

(Song of the Heart)

Let me sing a melody

Even if my voice has left me

Its strike is as intense as a tremor

Still, it still needs to waver


Let the record sound

For sure you will be astound

It is scratched in giving melody

It is even out of its own sanity


Just let the sonata fill the air

In the flow of life that’s full of quiver

Moreover the body is tired

Still the feelings surged


Let me play my guitar

And it surely gives you pleasure

The chords are strewn to pieces

The heart has been thrown to nothingness


Just be enthralled by the piano

And dance to the tune it gives you

Even if the arpeggio is way out of note

The identity is smirched, moreover smote


Just let the orchestra wail,

To entertain the imbecile

Even if the voice is burned out

Because of the blasted shout


Just allow me, and take heed

My heart’s song has to be ended

To sever this madness

That seems to be endless


Just let me have my interlude

And let the tempo fade slowly

Let all things be all but a memory

So I can regain myself and be in solitude …


Ngayon Lang

(Awit ng Puso)


Hayaan mo muna akong umawit

Kahit boses ko ay parang naipit

Singlakas ng lindol ang hagupit

Pero pilit pa ring kumakapit


Hayaan mo munang tumunog ang plaka

Kahit ito ay sintunado na

Nagasgas sa kabibigay ng musika

Ito ay wala na nga sa tamang timpla


Hayaan mo munang sumaliw ang sonata

Sa agos na buhay nakikibaka

Kahit katawan ay pagal na

Damdamin nag – uumapaw pa


Hayaan mo munang tumugtog ang gitara

Pansamantalang magbibigay ng saya

Kahit ang kuwerdas gula – gulanit na

Ang puso paos na sa kakangawa


Hayaan mo munang pumainlang ang piyano

Umindayog sa saliw na pinaabot nito

Kahit ang kuwerdo ay wala sa tono

Niyuyurakan, nilapastangan ang pagkatao


Hayaan mo munang pumalahaw ang orchestra

Magbigay aliw sa mga bisita

Kahit boses ay paos

Sa kasisigaw, tainga ay nalapnos


Hayaan mo muna, at ako’y pakinggan

Awitin ng puso sadyang may hangganan

At ng maputol yaring kahibangan

Pagsusumamo ko ngayon lang naman


Hayaan mo muna ako, ito’y tuldukan

Ang tempo ko’y pahinaan

Magpahinga na ang aking isipan

Nang matikman ang kaginhawaan...


This poem is dedicated to my student Jomalyn who asked and suggested to give justice to my poem "My Sweet Refrain (Aking Liyag)" by citing onomatopoeia in it...Thank you for the reminder...

      Just let me have my interlude

      And let the tempo fade slowly

      Let all things be all but a memory

      So I can regain myself and be in solitude …

      There is so much power and I sense, truth, for you in these words--a subtle and powerful piece of work!

      So beautiful Raciniwa, melodic, haunting, passionate. You are a gifted writer. Do you like humor? Read my hub on "Miz Joree First Day In Classroom". Depending upon what grades you teach you might identify with Miz Joree, a real person by the way. Thanks for reading and liking my poem Dance With Me Darling. I am sure you would be a great dance partner. Robert

      thank you Frank, you don't need to read the Filipino version, they just mean the same...it's my developed hobby to write one in our language then translate later in English...

      It is interesting to see that your original poem rhymed and also contained the word 'Sonata' (a piece played) I feel quite clever understanding one word in your poem. Lol

      You did a great job of translating this, it is so easy to lose the meaning in translation but you did it well

      Bravo
