Healing

I am back collecting all the pieces
Of shattered dreams and faded memories
I am trying not to mind the stitches
From the wound of my painful history

I am badly bruised but I’m not broken
I’m trying to pull through from my sorrow
My soul, my heart and my mind are hardened
Now I’m ready to face my tomorrow

And I am here to survive, I will thrive
Nothing can cage my spirit to be free
I’ll hang on as long as I am alive
Soon I’ll heal and I again will be me

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?

Heartbroken Once

Punch me and I will feel nothing
I won’t bruise and I won’t get hurt
Stare all you want, I won’t get burned
I won’t feel ashamed, I won’t care

I was broken once now I’m ready
I’m hard as steel, I am now strong
Call me heartless, maybe stoic
But I am here to brave the storm

So you’re asking for forgiveness now
Telling me how much you love me
Begging me to stay, never leave
Oh well, don’t you think it’s too late?

Please Stay

Slowly, slowly…
You’re drifting away
Sadly, oh so sadly
I can’t make you stay

I’m helpless, so helpless
You said you need space
Now I fear this emptiness
To long for your embrace

I understand, I know
You want this to end
But I cannot let go
We should try to mend

Slowly, eventually…
You will slip away
Sadly, oh so badly
I know you won’t stay
