Paano mo hihilahin pabalik ang isang kaibigang tila lumalayo ang loob at nagiging dahilan ng pag-iyak?
Paano mo isasalba ang isang pagkakaibigang kung hindi dahil sa lamat ay maaari pa sanang mas mamulaklak?
I thought you were merely an acquaintance
I used to talk to you with reluctance
But then we conversed heart to heart by chance
Wondered why I kept tremendous distance.
It was a mystery how we grew close
With one another we were so engrossed
Helping me find my essence and purpose
You served as the Yang of this Yin-like rose.
We got closer – perhaps a bit too much
It was unforeseen that my heart was snatched
I now try to find out how to detach
For I was in too deep – and no one catched.
I love it when our eyes lock for a moment,
Though our intentions are divergent.
I love it when he looks at me intensely,
But that only leaves me hoping pathetically.
