Rookie (Feb.6,1964 / Manila)

Ang para sa kanya (For him)

Ito lang ang hinihintay niya:
kung ano ang para sa kanya.
Ang dami nang dumating at nawala
pero lahat ay napasaiba.

Hindi na siya naiinggit pa.
Isa na lamang ang tanong niya:
Siya ba ay dapat maghintay pa
o mabuting magpaalam na?

For him

He waits for only this:
for what is meant for him.
So many have come and gone
which went to other people.

He is no longer envious.
He only wishes to ask:
Should he wait any longer
or should he take his leave?

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
