We were lying on the couch, M was on top of ME, he kissed my forehead, then my nose and then my lips. His was the more gentle and softest of kisses.
He lifted his face, and gave that fall-for-me smile of his and started singing:
Mahal kita, basta mahal kita.
Iniisip nila ay hindi mahalaga.
He paused. Smiled. Kissed my lips again then continued:
Mahal kita maging sino ka man.
For the first since HE, ME gave a genuine smile - like a kilig smile.
‘Wag kang mag-isip ng ano pa man
Mga paliwanag mo’y di na kailangan
At kahit ano pa ang iyong nakaraan
Mamahalin kita maging sino ka man
M continued with the song and finished it.
And all throughout the song M was looking at ME like he was trying to look for something.
May nahanap ka ba sa mga mata ko? ME said smiling when he finished the song.
Konti, pero parang ang dami pang kailangan mahanap. M replied.
Anong nahanap mo? ME
Nahanap ko na madali kang kiligin... Hahaha. M
M kissed ME again.
I like the song... ME said.
I like singing to you. M answered.
ME smiled again.
Thank you for the song - really. ME whispered.
Madami pa akong alam na kanta - if you'd let me. M whispered back
Eh di nag-smile na naman ako! Hahaha.
Jusko Lord! Ang tanda ko na para kiligin! Bwahahaha!
Pero kebs na lang!
Here's to those few moments when you feel something good again.
