Dugtungan

Maaari mo bang dugtungan ang mga panaginip
na binuo natin sa nabibilang na mga sandali,
buuin ang mga kwentong sinimulan ng mga labing
iisang tema lamang ang namumutawi?

Maaari mo bang dugtungan ang mga salitang isinulat
ng mga puso nating hinahanap ang isa’t isa,
pagtagpi tagpiin ang mga papel ng ating buhay
ikonekta sila para magkaroon ng linaw ang lahat?

Maaari mo bang dugtungan ang mga notang nagmumula
sa tumitibok na pusong ikaw lamang ang laman,
gumawa ng kantang tayo lamang ang makakaintindi
at aawitin kapag malayo sa isa’t isa?

Maaari mo bang dugtungan at pahabain ang panahon
habang namamalagi ka sa aking piling,
di na mawala pa sa aking paningin
‘pagkat ikaw lang ang parati kong hahanap hanapin?

I’d Love to

I’d love to steal the first kiss from your lips
while the sun is still busy yawning in the horizon.
I’d love to be the one to pour you your coffee
even when I haven’t drank a sip from mine.
I’d love to be the one to see you off to work,
sending you kisses by the door.
I’d love to welcome you home with the tightest embrace,
and serve you the best dinner to satisfy your hunger.
I’d love to cuddle next to you while we watch TV
and who knows where this might lead if you’ve been good to me?
I’d love to leave you the sweetest kiss before you sleep,
and whisper to your ear that I’ll see you in my dreams.

The Dreams Will Come Tonight

The dreams will come tonight like the rolling mist
and in the shadows that form half heartedly,
I shall dance to the slow song that your guitar sings.
With every strum of your fingers my feet will move
swaying hips to the rhythm that your music creates.
And by the light of the moon and the sigh of the stars
we will be making music out of our own desires,
with every sway of our bodies and the songs on our lips,
the fire within us will burn bright as day.
Eclipsing the brilliance of the moon and stars combined
we will melt with the searing heat that our love creates,
until we’re one in the world of dreams we’ve built,
in the halls of our memories where we seek each other out
holding tight lest our dreams fade away
and remind us that we are miles apart.

Chase away the dark clouds that hover,
bring back the warmth that I crave,
you’re the sun that beats back the gloom,
the beautiful morning that I want to wake up to.
Wrap me in your arms, catch the tears that fall,
heal my aching heart, and I’ll be yours forevermore.
Bring back the smile that used to grace my lips,
trace it with your fingertips, let it blossom like a flower,
and drink from it your reward, the deepest kiss.

Show me the way to your heart, guide me with your hands,
let me open the door to your soul, i promise i’ll be gentle with you.
You are a mystery that mystifies me, a puzzle I want to solve.
If you’ll but open yourself to me, I’ll do my best to figure you out.
You carry scars like the rest of us, but yours I’ll try to heal,
with loving hands to banish pain, and soothe your wounds with kisses sweet.
I’ll let you rest your weary head, close your eyes I’ll keep you safe.
In the circle of my arms, I’ll let you sleep,
so when you wake up, I’ll be the first one you’ll see.
Even if your world is falling, I’ll be here and I’ll hold on,
you’re not alone, never at all, for I’ll be here for you.
