Meet me in the next lifetime.

Even if my name doesn’t sound the same way to you, even if our hearts would never meet the way we do, and even if we are destined no more, I’d still hope to meet you in my afterlife. Because in there, I know my heart would still crave for the same longing, and that’s…

Kahit hindi man natin sabihin,

alam kong may mga pagkakataong nahihirapan tayong bitawan ang isang bagay. Kahit anong limot man natin, may hahatak at hahatak pa rin upang tayo’y bumalik dito. At hindi ko na iyon ipinagtataka.

And, it’s okay to be a blur sometimes.

It’s okay if you don’t see the signs like what others want you to do. It’s okay if you are torn between choosing the best or being the best in all aspects. It’s okay if you don’t shine when morning comes or sparkle when the dusk presents its stars. You are not a disaster, not…

Maybe in the poems,

I could possibly make myself stay — when there isn’t a place to go anymore. Maybe in the poems, I could show you how butterflies dance when they weren’t supposed to every time I see you. Maybe in the poems, I could tell you more about how sad songs turn you into a lullaby baby…
