Salamin

Sugarfree

Gumising akong mabigat ang loob
may guhit ng luha sa aking pisngi
dahan-dahang bumangon at napatanong
bakit dati hindi naman ganito ang buhay
sumisikip ang araw sa king bintana
naririning ang ingay ng kapit bahay
ngunit ditto, singgabi pa rin ng
kumakapit na dilim

[chorus]
Sa salamin ako’y tumingin
unti-unti kong napansin
na sa dami na tin ng nangyari
halos din a makilala ang aking sarili

may mga lumang kanta na naririnig pa
tungkol sa hari, kwarto, tulog at motel na madrama
at ang tinig sa radio at galling sa bata
na nagpapanggap na mama, di lang nya alam
mahirap palang tumanda

[ulit chorus]
nakakita ako ng isng litrato
halos din a makilala ang batang nakangiti
katulad ng maraming bagay, litrato ko’y
kukupas
at bukas isa na lang syang malayong
alaala.

    It ranks up there with Los Ba?os as a bittersweet song that reminds me of my (lost???) youth
