Nais Kong Matulog

18 Jun

Nais kong matulog.                                          I’d like to sleep

Nais kong matulog                                           I’d like to sleep

Magpahinga                                                     To rest

Magpahinga                                                     To rest

Malayang lumutang sa hangin                          Free to float in the air

Malayang managinip                                        Free to dream

Dahang-dahang dinadala                                 So slowly carried

Ng banayad na amihan                                                On a gentle breeze

Bitawan ang lungkot                                        Letting loose the melancholy

Hayaang matunaw ang pagod                          Letting the weariness melt

Mula sa katawan                                              From your body

Sa bawat daliri                                                 From each finger

Sa mga labi                                                      From your lips

Tahimik                                                           Quietly.

Tanaw lang                                                      Seeing only

Ang mabagal                                                    The slow-moving

Na gumagalaw                                                             Clouds.

Na ulap.                                                           With

Iba-ibang hugis                                                            Shapes of whimsy

Gawa ng isipan                                                            Made only

At imahinasyong                                              From your imagination

Hindi makulong.                                              Flying free

Hayaan lumipas                                                           Allowing time to meander

Ang oras                                                          And simply

At panoorin                                                     Watching stars

Ang isa-isang pag-ilaw                                     Wink into life.

Ng mga bituin                                                  Each of them

Na matagal nang                                              Ageless

Kumikislap                                                      In their glimmer

Mula sa                                                            And glitter,

Simula ng                                                         As old as

Panahon,                                                          The beginning of Time

Sa kapanganakan                                             And the birth

Ng mundo.                                                       Of the world.
