Sa Kanya - Ogie Alcasid/MYMP

This is my first time to write on this blogsite and the song is a local song. I will find a way to translate it's lyrics in English. Let me begin:

How can I forget December of 2005, when I was admitted to the Hospital because of acute bronchitis leading to asthma attack. I was confined for 3 days with all the oxygen and dextrose inserted to my body. My sincerest gratitude to my family because they were all there to provide me with all the things I needed.

The last time I was admitted to the hospital was when I have undergone an apendectomy procedure which is a surgical operation on appendix. It was one of the painful moments in my life that i had to overcome. Every single day and night, I had to cry because of the pain of it, but this person has shown his sincere concern, provided me with all the things I needed, from going to the bathroom and going back to my bed and put me back to sleep. All these he endured to lessen the inconveniences. If only he has the power to switch place with me so I'll never have to suffer the pain, he could have done it long ago out of his great and sincere love for me.

I felt the same longing the second time I was admitted on December of 2005. I broke up with him 3 years back and never had any communication with him. The song that keeps playing back on my mind while I was in the hospital is this "Sa Kanya"...by MYMP. I was deeply moved because it reminds me that despite of all the storms in life. I may have met few people who attempted to take his place in my heart...but nothing has levelled/equalled his ways. I just realized that, it is still him...my heart longs for. If only we have given it another chance, we could've restored the broken part. In my despair and loneliness... in my sleepless nights and disappointments... my lips has only spoken nothing else but his name. Hoping, just maybe, he'd come back for if that time comes, I would say... "my Heart still belongs to you".

This is my rough translation of the song:
Namulat ako at ngayo'y nag-iisa (I came to realize that I'm now alone)
Pagkatapos ng ulan (After the rain)
Bagama't nakalipas na ang mga sandali (Although the moments have passed)
Ay nagmumuni kung ako'y nagwagi (I am pondering if I won)

Pinipilit mang sabihin na ito'y wala sa akin (I tell myself that it is nothing)
Ngunit bakit hanggang ngayon, nagdurugo pa rin (But until now, I'm still in pain)

Chorus:
Sa kanya pa rin babalik sigaw, ng damdamin (I'll still come back to him)
Sa kanya pa rin sasaya bulong ng puso ko (I'll still be happy with him)
Kung buhay pa ang alaala ng ating nakaraan (If the memories are still alive...)
Ang pagmamahal at panahon alay pa rin sa kanya (All the love and time, I will still offer to him...)

At sa hatinggabi ay nag-iisa na lang (And while alone in the midnight)
Ay minamasdan ang larawan mo (I stare at your photo)
At ngayo'y bumalik nang siya'y kapiling pa (Now you came back while she's still with you)
Alaala ng buong magdamag (I think of this the whole night)
Kung sakali man isipin na ito'y wala sa akin (If you think this is nothing to me...)
Sana'y dinggin ang tinig kong nag-iisa pa rin (Please listen, my heart's desire is still the same)

Adlib:
Ang pagmamahal at panahon alay pa rin (All the love and time is offered...)
Sa kanya, sa kanya, sa kanya, hah-ooh
Sa kanya.
(...to him)

Thank you. If he's reading this, I want to let him know that he's part of more than half of my heart, mind and life.

At ngayo'y bumalik nang siya'y kapiling pa - And now the memories came back when he was still with me
