Paskong OFW

chr

Walang simbahang dito’y mapupuntahan
Upang misa de gallo ay maipagdiwang
Sa bibingka’t puto-bumbong natatakam
Salabat na mainit walang makuhanan

Hanap-hanap ko ang mga batang paslit
Na tuwing gabi sa Disyembre’y nangungulit
Sintunado man kung sila ay umawit
Himig nilang pamasko’y nais madinig

Hinahanap ko’y parol na maliwanag
Walang matanaw makulay na Christmas lights
Wala ring Christmas trees na kumukutitap
Ganito ang pasko sa ibayong dagat

Ngunit ‘di bale nang wala iyong lahat
Kung ngayong pasko kita ay mayayakap
Ihain ma’y bibingka lang at salabat
Basta’t kapiling ka’t kamay mo’y aking hawak

Pagkaing masarap maghahanda pa ba
Kung sa noche buena ako’y mag-iisa
Aking christmas lights ‘di na sisindihan pa
Nang dibdib ‘di madurog sa pangungulila

About Hardpen

Teacher-Writer Hardpen is my nom de plume. My real name is Massuline Antonio Dupaya Ligaya. Many times I was asked the question, "Why do you write?" I don't write for rewards nor adulation. When I write poems, stories or essays, seeing them completed gives me immense joy and satisfaction. The happiness and sense of fulfillment I feel when completing my works are my rewards. When I teach, I don't work but I play. The classroom is my playground, the students are my playmates, and the subject is our toy. Proud to be me! Proud to be a FILIPINO! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
