His Glory 

A million miles is not enough to reach your glory Lord.

A multitude of words is not sufficient to proclaim Your greatness.

A thousand melodies of heart-filled worship I give

to the King and Lord of glory.

The magnitude of His greatness extends to infinite awe.

No words can perfectly describe Him.

Lord, I am in awe of you.

 Kaibigan at Kaibigan 

mahirap mahulog sa isang kaibigan lalo pa’t di mo mapigilang malimutan siya..

na sa tuwing nandyan siya, parehong ligaya at lungkot ang iyong nadarama..

na sa tuwing nandyan siya, laging nakakpanghinayang ang pagkakataong mahagkan mo siya, di na bilang kaibigan kundi KA-ibigan. Pero kung man talaga mangyari yun, kahit paano.. KAIBIGAN pa rin. Hindi naman nagbago ang spelling. Siguro di niya mabago ang feeling.

 The Creator 

The earth resounds with praise.

The heavens sing Your majesty.

The waters roar and shout Your great and awesome power.

All of creation shall sing praises and shall worship the Creator of all the universe.

Thunders and lightnings shall sound and flash forth, the sun and stars shall bow down,

and Your people will declare that You are God!

From everlasting to everlasting, You are God!

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

 Larawan at Pagkakaibigan 

Lumilipas ang mga larawan subalit ang mga alaala ay hindi magmamaliw.

Parang pagkakaibigan, naikukulong ang bawat ngiti sa kuwadro ng larawan

            pero darating ang panahon na mawawala sila sa tabi mo.

Kanya-kanyang buhay at mga pangarap

Bagong kaibigan at kahalakhakan

Itatabi ko ang mga larawan.

Maaaring kumupas din ang mga iyon

            pero ang mga alaala ng ating pagkakaibigan,

            mananatili sa akin magpakailanman.

Ang Diyos ang nagtakda ng ating pagkakaibigan.

Siya rin ang tanging nakababatid ng panahon ng paglisan.

Pero ngumiti ka aking kaibigan, malinaw pa ang ating mga larawan.

 Parola 

Alam ko na ang gusto kong gawin.

Umakyat sa parola, pagmasadan ang kalawakan ng langit kung saan inuugoy ng hangin ang mga ulap; at maaliw sa pakikipaglaro ng habagat sa dagat…lakas ng hangin nun!

Tapos tatalon ako mula sa napakataas na parola pero di ako mahuhulog dahil sasaluhin ako’t tuturuang lumipad ng Dakilang Lumikha at sasamahan Niya akong liparin ang kalawakan ng buhay.

Gusto ko na lumipad. Gusto mo sumama?

Tugon ni Sarah:

Hindi.

Mas gusto kong manatiling nakatapak ang aking mga paa sa lupa.

Mas gusto kong nararamdaman ng aking mga paa ang masaganang tubo ng luntiang damo. Lalo na kung umaga, mamasa-masa ang sariwang hamog sa mga damo na dulot ng bagong umaga na biyaya ng Lumikha!

Tugon ni Aa:

Siya nga?

Kung gayon ay makikisaya muna ako sa’yo sa luntiang paligid at takbuhin ang mga libis ng buhay. Tiyak na kapiling din natin ang Lumikha sapagkat di naman Siya lumayo kahit minsan.

Pero lilipad din ako pagkatapos.

Tugon ni Sarah:

Sige. Pagsapit ng umaga’y tatakbuhin natin ang parang. Mamimitas ng mga prutas at bulaklak. Palilipasin ang maghapon na puno ng galak.

Pagdating ng hapon, ikaw’y ihahatid sa pinakamataas na pook na maaabot ng ating paglalakad. Mula doon, ikaw ay muling lilipad. Sa iyong paglipad, sasabayan na lamang kita ng tingin  kasama ang aking naisin na maabot mo ang iyong hangarin.

Katulad ng iyong sinabi, ang Lumikha ay ating kapiling saan mang dako tayo makarating.

Tugon ni Asta:

Nalulula ako.

Masasabayan mo kaya ako?

Sa bawat yabag ng aking puso, katumbas nito’y pintig ng aking mga ugat.

Halika…abutin mo ang kaing mga palad.

(paumanhin sa aking pamamatnugot)

 Bikeride 

I want to bikeride. Go the plains and just feel the gentle breeze. Be relaxed by the sweet scent of the air. Then I’ll go faster and jump off from my bike and throw myself to the rich sunflower garden and daffodils soft! Then I’ll look up to the sky and watch as clouds go by…then the rain falls. I’ll jump and dance with the rain! Run the slope and go to the hills and climb the highest mountain. And I’ll talk to my Creator.

I am in awe of You.

From there, I will jump to the vast blue sea and explore the ocean with its colors neon and bright! Then I will soar high to the clouds, ride on it and wake up.

I’m back.

Asta replies:

I will skid hard and jump towards the moon where I will float as if God is lulling me and then we will have ice cream so sweet and cold at Saturn’s rings.

Sarah replies:

Aren’t you going to exhaust yourself? Of all the things you wanted to do, one thing you forgot is to rest and savor the simple things around you. Yes, you want to enjoy the sweet scent of the air and the gentle breeze it brings; the lush green lands with soft daffodils growing; the vast blue sea and azure sky above. But what about taking some rest? You also need rest for you to enjoy another day’s adventure.

 Musikabanggi! 

Mainam!

Kaysarap pakinggan

ang himig ng hangin

awitan ng mga kuliglig

kiskis ng mga dahon

koro ng mga insekto ng banggi

at huni ng mga ibon.

Isama mo pa ang bulong ng hangin

at damhin ang simoy nito.

Pakinggan mo ang musika ng kalikasan

na inoorkestra ng Dakilang Lumikha.

Kay-inam!

 The Demander 

How many times have I been taken for granted? Just though of, talked with and laughed with when they need me. Yes, I care for them. But did they even care to ask me what I need, what I feel, or if I’m okay or did bother to say hi?

I may seem fine.

I may look okay.

But I’m not.

I am a simple guy longing for your sincere attention.

Nasasaktan din ako. Naghahanap din ako ng makikinig sa akin.

 Precious TearsPara sa Isang kaibigang hindi nahihirapang ilabas ang kanyang mga luha 

I know someone

His tears could flow like a river

Could flow like a melting candle

He could also fill a jar of his precious tears

But I admire his sensitivity, soft heart and easy tears

I cant’ cry easily like him.

I cant feel his sadness, hurt and pain

But I’m sure those tears have a spring

    from where they overflow.

Share me tears, share me spring

    of overflowing emotions

But I know,

    I’ll learn to let them out and flow too..

    Like a stream…

    a stream of precious tears

But not forever.

______________________________________________________________

 Luha at Ulan

Kung ang ulan ay luha

At bawat patak nito’y emosyong nag-umapaw

Mula sa ulap ng lumbay…

Sana’y bumuhos pa

    at bahain ang aking mga palad na naghihintay

    na mahagkan ang luhang

    kaytagal niyang hinintay

Bumuhos ka pa hanggang malimot ko

    ang hapis ng kahapon

    at ang lumbay ng kasalukuyan.

Lunurin mo ako at lasingin sa ligaya ng pagbuhos mo

Habang nililisan ng ulan ang mabigat na ulap

    ng lungkot, ng hapis, ng lumbay.

________________________________________________________________

 Ang Umibig

May mga raw na nalulunod ka sa lumbay.

May mga araw na gusto mo umiyak na parang ilog

May mga sandaling gusto mo suyang mahagkan

pero di mo magawa.

Pero mas maigi nang umasa kesa walang gawin.

Ang umibig, matamis at masakit kung minsan.

__________________________________________________________________

 Like the Rain

Like the rain,

I just wish that my tears

would fall as well

Because just like the rain

when not poured out,

emotions might swell too

and pour its strongest.

Sana ang luha ko

bumuhos gaya ng ulan

tapos ok na.

May araw naman

pagkatapos ng malakas na sigwa

 Let Me Fly with You 

If only I could fly… leave this town and cry

Leaving everything for a while

I don’t want to spend my time crying desperately

As if I’m losing everything I have

As if I’m losing myself, my identity

I’m even tired of walking this long road

My feet start to hurt and my heart is crying so hard

My mind wants to rest…

So fly me high to the sky

Let me soar like the eagle

Let me ride the clouds so light

And embrace the radiance of Your light.

I wanna fly (soar high)

I wanna fly (so light)

Let me fly with You.

My eyes are overflowing with tears

Like rivers in a scorching zone

I wanna dream like I can do everything

But I know its impossible if only by myself, that’s true

I can do little but I know I can do everything with You.

So I come to You and talk to You

Crying desperately and opening up my heart

Lifting up my concerns..

Lord, please draw out all these pain and sorrow

All the heartaches inside

God, You are my hope.

God, You are my only hope
