AKO’Y LAYUAN

walk away

Humakbang kang palayo sa akin
Kinabukasan mo’y h’wag sirain
Pag-ibig mo sana’y h’wag sayangin
Mahalin ka’y ‘di ko pwedeng gawin

Ang maging tayo’y isang pangarap
Na ‘di kaylan man pwedeng matupad
Ang ibigin kita’y ‘di marapat
Dahil sa dusa ka masasadlak

H’wag kang lumuha, h’wag mong damdamin
Nais ko ma’y ‘di pwedeng pilitin
Masakit ma’y dapat na tanggapin
Hindi ka pwedeng hagka’t yakapin

Bakit nang dumating ka’y huli na
Hindi na malayang ibigin ka
Kung noon sana tayo nagkita
Kuwento nati’y naging masaya

H’wag ka nang sa aki’y magpaalam
Baka kasi kita pa’y pigilan
Humayo ka na’t ako’y layuan
Pagsikapan mong ako’y kalimutan

Paglayo mo’y aking daramdamin
Pagluha’y mahirap na pigilin
Matapos kasing ako’y ibigin
Tinulak kang palayo sa akin

(Mula sa kantang “Walk Away” ni Matt Monro)

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!
