Pahiyom (Smile)

Mga pahiyom nga dili mabantayan
Mag sige nalang ba ko anig patagad?
Kanus-a pa kaha nimo ma bansay
Nga ako halos na mamatay
Sa pag tago-tago aning gibati
Nga ipagawas nalang sa usa ka pahiyom

A small smile on my face, but you never notice
Should I keep on trying to get your attention?
When will you realize
That I am close to dying
Trying hard to hide my feelings for you
The only sign that I would ever show, is the faintest smile
