Kaysarap pakinggan
ng mga huni ng ibon

How sweet to hear 
the sound of birds singing

Sa umagang kayganda
na punung puno ng pag-asa

In this beautiful morning
brimming with hope

Ang nakaraan ay bumabalik
sa bawat alaala na iyong iniwan

Memories of times past come back
for every reminder you left

Ang saya na naramdaman ko
ay napalitan ng pagkaulila sa yo

The happiness I felt
replaced by missing you

Sa paglipas ng panahon
di ka pa rin mawaglit sa aking isipan

In each moment time passed by 
you still occupy mind

Tanging sa larawang kupas na lang 
ika’y aking masisilayan

Only in this faded photo
I can still see you

Dedicated to my father on his birthday. I hope you enjoyed reading the poem.

Please bear with me as I have neglected answering your wonderful comments and if I haven’t drop by your blog. You know how life gets busy. In the next few days, I’ll be more busy but I’ll try to catch up with all of you.
