Candy Reader Poetry: Bakit Sa'yo Pa Ako Nagpakatanga?

Sa libu-libong taong nakasalamuha ko, bakit nga ikaw pa?

Ewan ko ba kung bakit,
Sa dinami-dami ng tao sa mundong
Mas hihigit pa sa'yo,
S
a'yo pa ako nagpaloko.

Ewan ko ba kung bakit sa dinami-rami ng bituin sa langit, 
Ngiti mo lamang ang gustong masungkit,
Mga ngiting tuwing aking nakikita,
Mga paruparo sa aking tiya'y nagliliparan.

Ewan ko rin kung bakit,
Napakarami naman sanang nakatagong makikislap na diyamante sa aming aparador,
Bakit ningning ng iyong mata ang lagi kong hinahanap at laging gustong makita?
Kung tutuusin nga ay mas madaling mag hanap ng pagkaliit-liit na perlas sa malaking aparador kesa hanapin ko ang lugar ko sa buhay mo.

Kung tutuusin nga ay mas madaling mag hanap ng pagkaliit-liit na perlas sa malaking aparador kesa hanapin ko ang lugar ko sa buhay mo.

Na kahit ang liit liit ng parteng hinihingi ko ay hindi mo maibigay—
Hindi mo maibigay dahil hindi nga naman ito nakalaan para sa akin.

Bakit sa dami ng tugtog na nauuso,
Punung-puno ng mga kakaibang tunog at madamdaming liriko,
Sa dinami-dami ng ibong humuhuni,
Ang iyong tinig lamang ang nais kong himig.

Pero bakit nga ba?
Hindi ko rin kasi alam,
Hindi ko alam kung bakit sa dami ng tao sa mundo,
Sa dami ng pwede kong ipalit sa iyo,
Ikaw at ikaw lamang ang ninananais ng puso ko.
