Himbing

November 28, 2011 Leave a comment

Death is an inevitable part of life. To each and every one of us, its nature is a mystery. No one really knows what’s in store for us when the material aspect of our being becomes devoid of life, as we know it. However, one thing is certain. It creates a gap between the living and the dead that can only be crossed through transcendence from the former state to the latter.

I’ve lost people who are very special to me and I dream about them constantly. Every time I see a vivid image of them in my sleep, I could feel a fragment of their soul reaching out to me. It’s as if they’re reminding me of their significance in my life. Never have I forgotten them and never will I stop cherishing them.

The song’s entitled, Himbing, which means a deep sleep. Coincidentally, it’s also a euphemism for death.

Isang saglit
Na nais makamit
Panaginip sa pag-idlip

Larawan mo
Na pilit sinaulo
Sa isip ay nagpapangiti

Malayo ang isip
Higit sa dulo ng langit
Dama ang ‘yong piling
Sa aking paghimbing

Umaasa
Sa muling pag-iisa
Ng diwa’t tunay na buhay

Kahit na
Wala ka sa tuwina
Batid pa din ang pag-iisa

Simula

It’s been five years since I met my life partner, Ava and we’re celebrating that today. Since then, our lives have been intertwined. I admit that our relationship is not always about rainbows and butterflies but there’s a bond between the two of us that keeps us from letting go and giving up on each other. It’s not just a physical or emotional attachment. It’s something that you feel in your gut like an instinctive response that tells me she’s the one I’ll be spending the rest of my life with. I’m happy that that has begun and I’m very much looking forward to the next eventuality.

I’ve been pretty nostalgic these past few days so I decided to write a little something for Ms. Artsy Fartsy Ava. The song’s called, Simula. By the way, pardon the singing, folks. It’s just a means to an end.

Naalala ang gabing
Magdamag na ika’y kapiling
Magkahawak ang kamay
Damang-dama ang tamis ng buhay

Sa ilalim ng buwan
At mga tala sa kalangitan
Magkasalo sa liwanag
Nilimot ang anino ng lumbay

At ngayon ang simula
Ng tayong inaasam
Sa piling mo
Mundo’y gumagaan

Naglalakbay sa kawalan
Ang isip sa isa’t-isa nakalaan
Iisa ang pangarap
Hinahangad ang masayang hantungan

Happy 12th, Moms! I’m really glad to be here with you. Athan and I are very lucky to have you. Love you very much!
