The Joke (Her Perspective)

Writer’s Note: This is a continuation of my post last week, The Joke (His Perspective).

It all started as a joke, a tease here and there
Somehow it was only me who actually cared
You treated me as if I was a mere stranger
So I moved on, lived my life like you weren’t there

Then I almost lost my life battling an illness
A blessing in disguise that lead to your awareness
The joke was on me as I was always helpless
Been helplessly wishing for your love and caress

This joke I hope you’ll take it very seriously
As I return your kiss and hug you tenderly
I’ve been yours from the start, you’re my one and only
Until my last breath, please promise to stay with me

The Joke (His Perspective)

It all started as a joke, a tease here and there
From our friends, our families – it was everywhere
I ignored all these – didn’t budge, didn’t care
I continued my life as a boy with a dare

Then something dawned on me which I cannot undo
I was no longer the oblivious boy you knew
The joke was on me as I win your love anew
So please believe me when I tell you “yes, I do”

This joke now I’m taking very seriously
As I put this ring on you and kiss you tenderly
As I make this vow to love you endlessly
Say yes, be mine forever, my one and only

Is It A Sin? / Kasalanan Ba?

Writer’s Note: This is originally written in my native tongue, Tagalog, but I also wrote the English version shortly right after.

I’m ready to offer my life for you, my dear
I will give you everything just to see your glee
Even if it means to let you go, set you free
For your happiness is the only thing I need

As long as he can love you the same way as I do
As long as he can bring back the shine in your eyes
I no longer care if I’m left alone, crying
If this is the only way to see you smiling

Yet I am still dreaming that we’ll be together
To be able to kiss your red lips for one more time
That in the end, it will still be just me and you
Please tell me, is it a sin to still dream about you?

Ang buhay ko’y handang ialay para sa’yo, sinta
Ibbigay ko ang lahat upang mapasaya ka
Kahit pa ang kapalit nito ay palayain ka
Pagka’t ang kaligayahan mo lang ang mahalaga

Basta’t pagmamahal ko sayo’y kayang tapatan nya
At maibalik nya ang mga kislap ng iyong mga mata
Hindi na baleng ako’y mag-isa at lumuluha
Kung ito ang paraan nang iyong ngiti ay makita

Ngunit ako’y nangangarap pa rin na makapiling ka
Na muling mahagkan ang iyong mga labing kay pula
Na balang araw ay magiging tayo pa ring dalawa
Kasalanan bang umasa at pangarapin ka pa?

Will You Be Mine?

You always light up my dim world
You bring warmth in this freezing cold
You’re an angel sent from above
Is this what people call “true love”?

Now, everything I can conquer
With you, I will never falter
With you, I’m at my happiest
This feeling, isn’t it the best?

This love is perfect, it’ so right
You have felt it, too, am I right?
‘Cause that is you when you’re with him
And here I am, living in a dream

For to you I am just a friend
Someone who’ll be there ’til the end
But I still wish for you to be mine
So honey, will you please be mine?

I Love You, Goodbye

Writer’s Note: Of course, the title is the same as Celine Dion’s song so just want to give that song a credit.

How do I convey the things that I want to say?
What more should I do to convince you to please stay?
I wish I could wipe the tears rolling in your eyes
If only I could stop all your whimpers and cries

Is this the end of the seven years – the end of us?
Can’t we have another chance? Let’s talk, let’s discuss
Is it that easy to throw everything all away?
Please forgive me, I didn’t mean to go astray

“It was you who had thrown everything all away
You forgot about us and let lust lead your way
I can’t forget it no matter how much I try
I hate to say it – I love you but this is goodbye”

One More Time / Muli

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

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?
