Hagibis (Fleeting-)

05/11/2019

Hindi naman kailangan na matalinghaga
Di naman inaasahang puro lang hiwaga
Ngunit tila ba nilalaro lang ni Bathala
Pinagtagpo ngunit di itinadhana

it doesn’t have to be all poetic
not all too magical, not all too mystic
but as if by God we’ve been divinely played
destined to meet but not fated to stay

Bakit kung kailan hindi ko na akala
Kailang pag-ibig man ay tila ba banyaga
Dinig mo ba’ng bulong ng mga makatang
Pinagtagpo ngunit di itinadhana

and just when I thought to me it’s never dawning
when love seemed nothing but a foreign thing
do you hear the silent rhymes these poets say
destined to meet but not fated to stay

Paalam nalang…

fare well-

author’s note
…in case you’re wondering, the original piece (left-aligned text) is written in Tagalog.

Hi! I'm Rose. I fancy myself a poet sometimes... But really, I'm just a dreamer- a wonder wanderer. Words are my photo albums.
