Gamugamo (W/English Translation - 'Lantern Fly') - Poem by Marites C. Cayetano

Gamugamo
tulad mo ako man
ay naaakit din sa liwanag
lalo't sa karimlan
nais kong mapalapit
sa kahit munti mang liwanag.

Gamugamo
ikaw ba'y tulad ko ring
alam ang pag-ibig?
ikaw ba'y tulad ko ring
alam ang paninimdim?

Gamugamo
sa aking munting dampa
ika'y tumuloy
at liwanag ng aking munting lampara
halina't ating pagsawaan
ingatan mo lang
huwag lubhang mapalapit
sapagkat hatid nito'y
iyong wakas.






english translation
- Lantern Fly -


Lantern fly
just like you
I am fascinated with lights
especially in the dark
I want to get close
even to the littlest light.

Lantern fly
just like me
do you know what love is?
just like me
do you know what sorrow is?

Lantern fly
come in to my hut
and let's watch together
the light of my little lamp
just be careful
not to get too close
because it may lead you
to your end.
