sa ilalim ng tulay

Minsang tumawid ka,
Ang kaba hinarap.
Sa ilalim nitong tulay,
Sa may ilog sumulyap.

Kulang pa nga ba
Na sundan lang ng tingin,
Kaya’t nagpatangay ka
At kinailangang lingunin?

Ang agos may halina,
Niyakag kang sumama.
Ulirat hindi gumana,
Sa lagaslas nagpadala.

Mababaw lang noong una.
Lumalim nang lima na.
Umahon man pagdaka,
Lulusong muling kusa.

May gabing kakaunin ka,
Pag tubig ay pilak na
At buwa’y gintong pawa.
Makipagsapalaran ka sa baha.

that day

When my six-word stories are waiting for #thatday:

Is it Someday today? Not today.

Will the not-todays ever run out?

When will Someday actually come though?


I’ve waited too long. Already.

Everyday I would imagine how those eyes would suddenly glow, how those lips slowly curve to show delight, how your smile proves that you are glad to see me again.

I keep playing that scene in my head when I wake up in the morning, when I feel the morning sun on my face as I walk to work, when I’m in the middle of laughing at a joke, when I read your words; it feels so good that it would take a moment before I actually notice myself grinning.

Then when we finally met, as it was truly happening, it happened so fast! It happened so fast that I couldn’t grasp the thought that it was real, that you were real.

We talked but I never really remembered what was said. I was just happy to see you, your eyes, your smile. It was just how I imagined it. And now, I replay that scene on my mind, over and over; slowly each time. It feels even better knowing that it happened again, for real. It was real, you are real.

So, again, I will be waiting…

soon will be long enough

It’s been long enough,

Yet not too long

To wait.

For now.


I try

To hold on

To the last time.

In my mind,

I relive

Every move,

Every moment.

But it’s not enough.

It’s just not enough.


You try

To hope

For a next time.

In your heart,

Your dream

Every wish,

Every smile.

But it’s not enough.

It’s just not enough.

It won’t be long.

Soon enough,






It’s over.

Too soon.

Yet long enough.



Yet not too soon,

We wait.
