Ikaw ang Aking Habambuhay (You’re My Forever)

Last week, as I celebrated my 25th birthday, I was tasked to host a Filipino-subject activity for all the College Freshmen. I know for a fact that speaking straight Filipino is a tough challenge for the Knoller and the Madocian in me. But, by the grace of God, I know I was able to host the event with a bang! (self-praise).. hehe.. With that, I challenged myself more into writing a poem in Filipino, and here it goes…

Para sa aking habambuhay na Ginoo,

Isang umagang di inaasahan
Mukha mo’y biglang ninais masilayan
Oh Ginoo!
Bakit sa pagsikat ng araw
Pusong nanahihimik, iyong pinukaw?

Pagsapit ng tanghali,
Ngiti ang nasa aking labi
Oh Ginoo!
Sa araw na ito’y ikaw ang hanap
Kasama saking mga pangarap

Sa dapithapon, di matahimik
Di malaman bakit ako nasasabik
Oh Ginoo!
Bakit sa paglabas ng buwan
Ikaw pa rin ang laman ng isipan?

Sa umaga, tanghali, at gabi
Oh Ginoo! Ako’y iyong binibini
Naghihintay, Umaasa,
Nananalig na makilala ka na

Saan ka man naroroon
Ika’y nasa dalangin kahapon, bukas at ngayon
Oh Ginoo!
Puso’y mananahimik at mahihimbing
Hanggang sa araw na ika’y makapiling

Ikaw ay hihintayin
Balang araw sasambitin
Oh Ginoo!
Ikaw ang aking habambuhay
Na Maykapal ang siyang nagbigay

Take it from an impatient woman! 🙂
