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

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?

One More Time / Muli

reaching out

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…

heartbroken

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?
