I Know

I Know
Melchor F. Cichon
Feb. 28, 2020
I know
You do not like to see the dawn anymore
Beside me
For you feel now
That it’s like seeing a setting sun.
I know you can bake ube pan de sal
With a smile
Without my presence
For you feel free
Like a flying eagle
In the sky
Without me.

Saeamat Ginuo

Saeamat Ginuo

Saeamat Ginuo
Sa pagtao Mo't oportonidad
Nga ako makaagi
Sa rayang kalibutan;
Makaagi ag makapamati
Sa huni't maya
Sa kaeanasan;
Makaagi ag makakita
It ugsad, it pagsipeat it adlaw
Maski kon amat
Ginatabunan ra it maitum nga gae-um;
Makaagi ag mabatyagan
Ro kaeamig ag kainit
Ku hangin, ku adlaw
Ag pagkupkup kang Nanay ag Tatay
Ag kang mga unga't asawa.
Saeamat gid Ginuo
Ay ginpaagi Mo ako
Sa kalibutan ngara
Agod mabatyagan ko ro katam-is it dugos
Ag ro kaap-eod it apdo't pangabuhi.

I Maybe Silent Now

I Maybe Silent Now
By Melchor F. Cichon
April 12, 1990

I maybe silent now
Now that the sun is setting
And I am locked in this dark cell.
I maybe silent now
Now that the moss is kissing my cold lips
While the worms are enjoying their feast.
But don't misunderstand me.
There are words that are better left unspoken.
There are messages that better are heard in silence.

Adlaw It Tagipusuon

Adlaw It Tagipusuon
***Melchor F. Cichon
February 14, 2020

Nag-abot kid man
Ro adlaw it tagipusuon.
Ugaling kay Itsong
Raya ro pinakamasubo nga adlaw
Ay ra Parayaw
Nagpanaw
Kaibahan ka bayaw.
Kunta
May adlaw man
It utok
Agod owa't
Magsunlog sa mga eaon.

Luwa, May Mansion Ako nga Baeay

May mansion ako nga baeay
Nga maeapit sa baybay;
Ginsueod ni Maymay
Ag ginpuno na ni monay.
