Relax… close your eyes then listen
To the sound of innocence
To the sound of purity
Do you hear it? Can you hear it?
It is the laughter of the children
The kids happily playing with water
Enjoying themselves – giggling

Then unload your burdens and listen
To the sound of tranquility
To the sound of silence
Listen carefully. Do you hear it?
It is the water touching the sand
The waves gently hitting the shore
It is music to the ears – calming

Now, block the unnecessary noises
Only listen to the sound of sincerity
To the sound of honesty
Relax and focus. Can you hear it?
It is the soft voice coming from your heart
Whispering what it wants, what it needs
Do you hear it clearly now?

Relax…
When you’re lost, just listen…
Listen to your heart’s whisper…

Let It Be / Hayaan Lang

Author’s Note: Originally written in my native language, Filipino.

Rest the mind and slowly close your eyes
Listen to the sorrows of your heart
Together explore and take the journey
And discover peace and serenity

Then breathe deeply and just let it be
Do not be nervous, do not worry
Do not hold back tears, just let it flow
Continue your walk in this endless road

Then leave fear for mind and heart to be whole
To forget the pain; to learn to let go
To again seek for the hope that was lost
Then heart will be opened, be filled with joy

Filipino Version:

Ipahinga ang utak, ipikit ang mga mata
Pakinggan ang pusong sumisigaw at nagdurusa
Sabayan mo ito sa paglalakbay at paggala
At tuklasin ang daang tahimik at mapayapa

Huminga ng malalim, hayaang magpadala
Huwag kang mag-alala, huwag kang mangamba
Huwag pigilan ang pagdaloy ng mga luha
Sundan lang ang walang hanggan na kalsada

Iwan ang takot, utak at puso’y magiging isa
Malilimot ang sakit, matututong magparaya
Muling mahahanap ang nawalang pag-asa
At puso ay tuluyang bubukas at sasaya
