Of Losing You

Still haunts me to this day when I think about the time

When I was so afraid to lose you,

You were my poetry, my rhyme

But we’d just lose it all, who knew?
No one told me it was fleeting and I got caught up

Too afraid, so I didn’t move

I looked around and I stopped 

I was afraid of losing you but I lost you all the same

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

Heart On A String

I used to write poetries about him
Secretly he made my heart smile
It was what made my day
It was like that for a little while

But seasom change and time flies
Things are never going to be the same
I’ve learned, let go, and moved on
Neither of us were to blame

And from that moment I have learned
Never to put my heart out like that again
Because it can easily be lost
And it’s a bit hard to start over and begin

Keep A Secret

Can you keep a secret?
Should I share this to you?
I’ll be pouring my heart out
That much is true

I’ll tell you all about it
But please know it is not easy
You may think it’s just fun and games
You might even think it’s cheesy

I’ll tell you my secret because I trust you
So please don’t break the rules
Here goes nothing
This is how it goes……
