Sa’Yo/With You

May kung ano sa nangungusap mong mga mata

Na nag-aaya sa akin para tumingin, tumitig.

Pinagmasdan kita –

Kagaya ng tumitingala ako sa langit para habulin ng paningin ang mga bituin.

Sino’ng hindi mabibighani, iibig

Sa kanila?

 

Sa’yo?

 

Ngunit hanggang tingala, tanaw

Lamang ang nagagawa ng mga matang ito,

Pakgat sa katapusan ng gabi, unti-unting lalamunin ng liwanag

Ang munti mong kislap

At ako ay gigising sa katotohanang hindi na maaninang

Ang liwanag na nagdala sa’kin patungo

 

Sa’yo.

 

***

The spark in your eyes

Have led me to stare frozen

For long

Like I look up as the stars seem to dance.

Who wouldn’t be caught in awe, or fall in love

With their sheer beauty?

 

With you?

 

But that’s all my eyes could do –

Look at you from afar

For when this deep night ends, the dawn will consume

Such little radiance out of you

Until these eyes could no longer see the light

That I have I shared

 

With you.
