Kahidlaw

Sayu sa kabuntagon pa,
Natimahu-an na taka.
Wala ko damha
Nga ikaw ania na!

Hingpit ang kalipay,
Sa pag-gawas ko sa balay;
Ikaw ang unang nakita
Ning matang naghikabhikab na.

Hingpit ang pag ampo
Na si mama muyango,
Nga ikaw ma-ako –
Bisan sayu pang dako.

Pero ako gibalibaran
Kinahanglan pang mag-atang
Kung kanus-a ma-andam
Ang lechon baboy nga lamian!

  • PAGHUBAD SA INGLIS

RAVENOUS

Early in the morning,
I can already smell you.
I never thought,
You be here at this hour.

I was so elated
When I went outside
You’re the first thing I saw
With these excited eyes.

I prayed so hard
That my mother will agree
That you’d be mine
Early on in this morn’.

But she profusely declined
So I will have to wait
Until my mom could boast,
That mouthwatering hog roast.
