Why Do You Write / Bakit Ka Nagsusulat?

Why do you write?
Is it for the likes
To earn money
Is it just a hobby
Or just because

What if the end is near?
Ideas are running out
There are no more words
The fire is dying down
What’s left is only residue

Can you still write?
Even without an audience
Are you changing your ways to conform
Or would you just let it go
Then accept the faded dream

So why am I still writing?
Because this is why I’m breathing
Until the last drop of my ink
Even if there’s no one who reads
Because writing is my happiness

Bakit ka nagsusulat?
Para ba sa likes
Para ba kumita
Libangan kaya
O dahil wala lang

Eh paano kung hanggang dun na lang?
Naubos na ang mga ideya
Wala ng mga salita
Upos na ang kandila
Latak na lang ang asa utak

Kakayanin mo pa bang magsulat?
Kahit wala namang nagbabasa
Babaguhin mo ba ang likha para sa iba
O hahayaan na lang maiga
At tanggapin ang paglaho ng pangarap

Eh bakit pa rin ako nagsusulat?
Dahil dito ako humihinga
Pipigain hanggang sa huling tinta
Kahit pa walang mambabasa
Dahil pagsusulat ng aking ligaya

Lost and found (freephotos.aguru.in)

My fate, my destiny, it’s now clearer
My life long search is finally over
No more worries, my fears are now conquered
This is for a love that I’ve discovered

I was lost once then you showed me the way
You are the sun that brightens up my day
No more darkness; light will forever stay
This is for the true love that’s now at play

So thank you, dear, for this amazing blast
You’re the one – my soulmate that I have asked
To infinity and beyond, we will last
This is for the love that I’ve found at last

Letter To A Lost Love

You stole my time by thinking of you
I was a mess, didn’t know what to do
You followed me, haunted me like a ghost
This is for the love that I had once lost

Then with all the tears I became stronger
You made me realize I have such power
You showed me the rainbow after the rain
This is for the lost love that gave me pain

So thank you, love, for all the heart ache
It was worth it, it was all for my sake
You set me free; myself, I’ve come to know
This is for the love that I’m now letting go

What If

sleeping baby

What if you were just a pigment of my dream?
What if the life I’ve known with you was unreal?
Slowly, my world, my life will start to dim
My heart will be broken, it will never heal

For now I’ve learned to enjoy this life with you
I have a new purpose and that’s to see you grow
So what if I was just imagining you?
Then please hold me close and don’t ever let go

Or take me back to my dream where you were there
Then I will hug you, lock you in my embrace
Then don’t wake me up, I’ll stay until forever
So I can be with you in this happy place
