Nanay - Mother
Tikang nak kaguti-ay
pirme ak pasaway
maaram ak han im kapoy
abot ha punto nga makalolooy.
Nay, may panahon ako nabido
waray ko ipakita ha im nak kasubo
ha gawas pirme ak napakamalipay
sulod nak dughan bagan may mga anay.
Ha kaiha nga panahon akon inantos
kay di ko kaya lumakat hin waray pulos
nadiri ak magbungalos ngan bidoon ka
kay waray ak iba nga nanay, ikaw gudla.
Yana nga harayo ak ha imo
tak huna huna karuyag manginano
minimingaw gad ak hinduro
bisan kausa la unta makahangkop ha imo.
Since I was a kid
I had caused you problems indeed
I knew how you dealt with difficulty
to the point of seeing you in melancholy.
Mother, came a time a felt so bad
yet never showed how it made me sad
I needed to display a happy facade
amid feeling of pests gnawing me inside.
For years I lived in sustainable bearings
had I went away it would have gained me nothing
and truth to tell, I didn't wish to give you pain
coz you're the only mother I have; only you, I can claim.
Now that I'm far away from you
I always think one thing I wish to do
I miss you so much that I feel so blue
How I long for your hug and embrace you too.
