    On my paper was a spot,
    Thought it was just a water drop,
    But no cup was near me.

    Tried to look for the source,
    And when I touched my cheek,
    I discovered where it came from.

    The Day Her Ship Sank

    The day her ship sank
    Is the day his heart sank as well
    On the 1st day of January
    It's not a happy new year for him
    He's longing for her presence
    He's missing the warmth of her embrace
    In the vast ocean of his agony and pain
    He never stops shouting his beloved's name
    The day her ship sank
    Is the day his world stops to spin
    The day her ship sank
    Is the day his heart died together with her

    Bid Your Goodbye

    Even if you are strange and a bit weird
    It doesn't mean you have to change yourself
    Instead, change your point of view
    Own yourself, embrace yourself, be true
    Don't keep on trying to be someone that is not you
    You don't need to be like them to be you
    Bid goodbye to all your worries
    Say farewell to all of your woes
    You don't need to be sophisticated to be in
    'Cause you'll never be out if you're real and sincere
    I love you just the way you are right now
    And there's nothing I wish to change in you

    Broken

    Tryin' to find where the sun rises,
    Seek the home that I truly misses,
    And fulfill all my broken promises,
    To you who loves me dear like nobody else.

    For thy love lessen the pain inside me,
    You made me rose above my own misery,
    And thy laughters made my soul so happy,
    That it's bubbling inside my dying body.

    I am sinking and drowning in an ocean of pain,
    And little by little my inside is literally dyin',
    But as I let my tears washed away by the rain,
    You found me and made the other side of me reign.

    How long should I have to pretend that I am fine?
    Pretend that my smiles are as sweet as the wine,
    But I'm literally wishing to reach my finish line,
    Well, not until you healed this broken heart of mine.

    Im here, infront of the mirror
    Looking in my tired eyes
    You're once a traitor
    Makin me cold as ice.

    Little Dreamer

    What if you meet the young you?
    At times like this
    Now that views have been altered
    And now afraid to take risks

    She'll wipe her tears with little hands
    As sad as it seems
    And with her small voice she says,
    "I thought we had dreams."

    Sad Nights

    At nights like this
    Please look at the stars
    And don't blame this crazy
    World of ours

    And on sad nights under
    This bright shining crescent
    May you have the courage
    To make tomorrow different

    Malaya

    Heto akong muli,
    Sumusulat ng tula,
    Nagbabaka-sakali
    Nadaramang sakit ay mawala.

    Mahal, paano nga ba
    Ang dating masayang pagmamahalan
    Ngayo'y malapit na sa katapusan,
    Wala nang patutunguhan pa.

    Ano nga ba ang dahilan
    Ng malamig na pakikitungo?
    Hindi man alam ang kasalanan
    Hinihiling pa rin na mapatawad mo.

    May ayaw ka ba sa akin?
    Aayusin ko para sa iyo.
    Nasasakal na ba sa pag-ibig ko?
    Ako'y magbabago para sa atin.

    Ikaw ba'y nagseselos?
    Sabihin mo at lalayuan ko siya.
    O baka hinihintay lang na tayo'y magwakas
    Dahil ika'y may mahal nang iba?

    Mahal, pagod na ako
    Ngunit hindi pahinga ang kailangan
    Kundi aking kalayaan
    Mula sa relasyong ito.

    Kaya narito akong muli
    Sa iyo nang harapan
    Hindi para itama ang mali
    Kundi para ika'y akin nang pakawalan.

    Saranghae

    Rushing to meet the sea and watch the sun to set,
    Down the shore I feel the cold breeze of the wind,
    The sea waves and the twilight with you is perfect.

    Looking up above the wonderful color of the sky,
    A mixed of blue, orange, lavander and pink clouds,
    It's as beautiful as you, believe me it is never a lie.

    My heart is melting as I am staring at your smile,
    Your coffee-brown eyes that sparkle with delight,
    And your fragrance that you can emit even in a mile.

    I really love the scenery, seeing you in white dress,
    Holding a white rose in your hand under the moonlight,
    As I kneel on the ground with a ring and wishing for your sweet "YES".

    I can make you a thousand poems and a hundreds of songs because I love you,
    Just say you love me too and I'm more than willing to do everything for you.

    SUNFLOWER

    Dear Kid,
    You are a baby sunflower; you were never meant to be red like a rose or fragrant like a jasmine.
    You were supposed to be yellow, facing the sun and blooming on your own without the feeling of inferiority.

    Sunflower stands tall with grace evoking the feeling of positivity.
    You are as bright as the sun, you possess your own kind of beauty.
    Never compare yourself to a red, red rose or to a newborn lily.
    Not to a jasmine that bloom with fragrance nor to dandelions that dance with the breeze of the wind.

    You are a sunflower, the one that grows like nobody.
    Remember this kid, neither you are inferior nor superior to any.
    Everyone is unique in their own way; we must just learn to embrace the concept of equality.

    Lipos ng pag-ibig, tila ngayo'y nanlalamig.
    Sa kalaliman ng gabi'y hindi man lamang naka-idlip,
    Pag-ibig na dati'y yanong init,
    Ngayo'y unti-unti nang pumapait.
    Bakit tila yata nagbago't naglaho?
    Pinipintakasing pag-irog ngayo'y lumalabo.
    Mayroon na bang bago?
    O sadyang wala lang talagang tayo?
    Pagka't noong una pa lamang ay walang ikaw at ako.

    "Bakit ka nagbago? Mayroon na bang bago?"

    You and Me

    Full of love, your love now is getting colder.
    In the depths of the night I can't fall into a deep slumber.
    Love that used to be so warm, slowly getting bitter and fades away.
    Why does it have to change and disappear this way?
    The love that I've ever dreamed of, it's fading.
    Do you have someone new,
    Or is it just me who dreams that I can be with you?
    For you and me doesn't really exist from the very beginning —
    it's a tale that'll never come true.

    Ikaw at Ako

    Andito na naman tayong dalawa
    Kung saan tayo laging nagkikita,
    Inaalala ang bawat nagdaan
    Mula nang tayo'y magmahalan.

    Matagal na tayong magkaibigan
    Ngunit bakit isang pagkakataon
    Nang magtagpo ang ating mga mata
    Tila ba may ibang nadama?

    Hindi nagtagal ika'y umamin,
    Kakaibang saya ang dulot sa akin,
    Dalawang salita mula sa iyong mga labi
    "Mahal kita" at ako'y napangiti.

    Nang sabihin kong mahal na rin kita,
    Kita ang tuwa sa iyong mukha.
    Mga braso mo'y agad yumakap sa akin
    Na tila ba ako'y ayaw nang pakawalan.

    Mula noon tayo ay nangako sa isa't isa
    Na hawak-kamay natin haharapin ang mga problema,
    Na ating mga paa'y sabay lalakbayin
    Ang daan patungo sa ating walang hanggan.

    Sa isang tuhod ika'y luluhod sa aking harapan
    Upang ako'y alukin na ika'y pakasalan,
    Ang mga plano natin para sa ating hinaharap,
    Lahat yan ay nabuo na sa ating mga isip.

    Mahal, masakit pa rin palang alalahanin
    Ang bawat nakaraan natin,
    Panahong ako pa ang nilalaman ng puso mo
    Ngunit ngayon ay iba na ang nagmamay-ari nito.

    Mga mata natin puro luha ang lumalabas.
    Mga labi mo'y puro paalam ang binibigkas.
    Mga tuhod mo'y nakaluhod muli
    Para humingi ng tawad sa iyong mga pagkakamali.

    Ang mga braso mong akala ko ako'y poprotektahan
    Sakit ang hatid dahil may iba nang kayakap ngayon.
    Bakit kapit sa aking kamay ay lalo pang hinigpitan
    Kung ako ay iyo lang din palang bibitawan?

    Kaya ang dasal sa aking isipan
    Lahat ng sakit akin na sanang makalimutan
    Dahil magkaibang landas na
    Ang tinatahak ng ating mga paa.

    Mahal, paalam na rin sa'yo
    Dahil lilisanin ko na ang lugar na ito
    Para ako'y makapagsimula na
    Sa panibagong buhay kung saan wala ka.

    Walls

    Within these walls,
    I am free.
    Within these walls,
    I am me.

    I am free to dance
    Even with two left feet
    And inflexible body,
    I won't feel ashamed.

    I am free to sing
    As if having my own concert,
    Sing any genre I like,
    Even when I'm out of tune.

    I am free to laugh
    As loud as I can
    As if there's no tomorrow,
    Be as crazy as I could be.

    I am free to cry.
    Let the tears fall down
    Till nothing comes out anymore.
    I won't be called overdramatic.

    But then that day came
    When something unexpected happened,
    Part of the walls crumbled down
    And silhouettes appeared.

    Hesitant to approach them first,
    So they came to me.
    They suddenly sang and danced,
    And laughed and cried with me.

    With them I can dance shamelessly,
    Sing out of tune,
    Laugh crazily,
    And cry overdramatically.

    With these people,
    I am free.
    With these friends,
    I am me.

    They say that I can do this
    But negativity is eating me up.

    They say that I am strong
    But I don't feel that side of me anymore.

    They are lifting my spirit up
    But even I am doubting myself.

    I used to be the one cheering them up
    But why can't I do that to myself?

    How can I keep myself motivated?
    How can I push myself to do better?
    How can I win this fight
    When even my mind is battling with me?

    I want to be a child again,
    Singing and dancing in the rain,
    Crying over just a simple pain,
    But I guess it'll be just a wish every now and then.

    Many times I've cried.
    Most times I felt stupid.
    But I will not give up.
    I will not lose hope.
    Though you're hard to reach,
    I'd still keep on reachin' you.

    Here I am again
    Sitting in front of the table
    Where I placed my stuffs
    Yet I'm only staring blankly at them.

    Move!
    I told myself.
    I need to move.
    I need to wake up from this nothingness.

    Oras

    Magkano ba ang oras?
    Alam mo ba?
    Kailangan ko lang kasi.
    Baka naman may kilala kang nagtitinda nito.

    Oras para mag-aral,
    Oras para magsaya,
    Oras para magpahinga,
    Magkano ba ang mga iyan?

    Kailangan ko lang talaga.
    May alam ka bang bilihan nito?
    Parang awa mo na.
    Pakisabi naman sa akin.

    In you I found a friend,
    A companion I'll always have,
    In any time and place
    You're always by my side.

    Thank you, my friend,
    For I can tell you anything,
    May it be a nonsense story
    Or a meaningful one.

    Through my sad times
    You just stayed with me
    Even when tears were flowing from my eyes
    And sobs were coming from my mouth.

    When I was doubting myself
    You never failed to scold me
    For being a pessimist
    'Cause you believe in me.

    During my joyous times
    You were happy for me
    Though you don't say it
    I feel that you are.

    Through all those ups and downs
    You have been there for me
    And I only wish this friendship
    More years of craziness.
