Liham sa Aking Pagpanaw at Paglisan - By: Ericko Jay Alciso

Sa aking pagpanaw at paglisan,

Bubuhos ang luha kasabay ng ulan.

Tatanggap ng papuri't bulaklak ang aking tahanan.

Subalit, walang makakaalam kung paano ako tumahan.


Sa ibabaw ng aking kabaong nakapatong ang gantimpala.

Lahat nakikita ang maningning na medalya.

Tiyak, lahat mamangha sa nakikita

At magbubunyi sa malagintong salita.


Ngunit, sa lahat ng papuri at pag-alala.

Wala ninuman sa kakilala o kaibigan ko ang tunay na makakaalala.

Kakalimutan ito sabay sa aking pagpapahinga.

Ngunit, may namumukudtangi sa lahat na makakaalala.


Bubuhos sa kanila ang tunay na hinagpis.

Isa sa kanila ay tatangis na walang katumbas.

Magiging ala-ala ka na lang sa nakalipas,

Ngunit sa kanya ako ay walang wakas.


Iisipin nilang lahat kung sino ka at paano mo ko pinatahan?

Lahat sila magtatanong kung ano ang rason ng aking paglisan?

Dahil ni-isa walang nakakaalam kung bakit ako lumisan.

Kaya ikaw na bahala kung ano ang liham sa aking pagpanaw at paglisan.
