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
