Writer’s Note: This was originally written in Filipino (the one below) and the one in English was the translation.

I knew you and I are not meant to last long
But I took the chance for to you I belong
Now, all I have are your memories that linger
Hopefully they’ll be with me until forever

Yet I’m still clueless, I don’t know what to do
For I cannot bear this pain of losing you
Our hopes, our dreams, they are all fading away
If only I had found a way to make you stay

Tell me how can I bring back the yesterday
Let me bring back what God had taken away
For I want to be with you for one more time
I need to kiss you again for one last time

Sa simula alam ko nang hindi tayo magtatagal
Ngunit pinili kita dahil ako’y sayo, aking mahal
Ngayon ang alaala mo lang ang aking hinahawakan
Sana’y kapiling ko ang mga ito hanggang katapusan

Ngunit ako’y naguguluhan, hindi alam ang gagawin
Dahil ang sakit ng iyong paglisan di ko kayang dalhin
Ang ating mga pangarap ay unti unting naglalaho
Kung alam ko lang ang paraan na ika’y hindi lumayo

Paano maibabalik ang lumipas na kahapon?
Paano ibabalik ang kinuha na ng Panginoon?
Kung maaari lang, nais kitang muling makasama
Kung maaari lang, sana’y mahagkan muli kita

The Devil’s Voice

I hear the devil’s voice
Whispering closely to my ear
Telling me things
That something bad will happen
I’m hopeless, helpless
And all I can do is cry

I hear the devil’s voice
Telling me truths about life
Uncovering all secrets
Showing me the path, the way
I’m amused, amazed
And all I can do is to listen

I hear the devil’s voice
Calling my name
Commanding me to end it all
“It will set you free, find peace,”‎
I struggle, it’s hard to resist
‎Oh God, freedom is so tempting!

I hear the devil’s voice
It’s screaming, shouting at me
Then a light so bright appears
Shattering everything – all is lie
But I can hardly see, it’s a blur
As I break down, I’m on my knees

Oh God, help me please…

Today…

Today, I realized I’d never be the same
Without you, there’d be no passion, life would be lame
But why did you even tell me to wait, to stay?
Now how am I supposed to face the coming days?

Today, I tried to accept my reality
That you and I are probably not meant to be
But at least tell me the reason, give me closure
Until when do you plan to keep this torture?

So today, I just spent all my hours sulking
I kept checking my messages but still nothing
Then wondered where would I be if you’d ever leave
Oh why did you give me hope and make me believe?

Farewell Again

Here I am, going to bid my farewell again
To a chaotic yet a fun roller coaster
It’s been heck of a ride but true lessons I gained
To bring me as I embark to wherever

Here I am, closing another chapter again
With only hope for a future that is brighter
Leaving a past with frustrations I can’t contain
Marking a new journey for this lost traveler
