Ang Paghigugma (Loving) Ilonggo Poem

ang paghigugma
isa ka matahom nga tinaga
kung ikaw nagahigugma
kaangay mo ang isa ka bata
bata nga gamay nga wala sang problema
kundi kalipayan lang
mahibi man gamay
pero wala gid gadugay
ang kalain sang buot dasig malipatan
kay ang paghigugmaanay lamang
ang gaka dumduman
kung ako magahigugma
tinguhaan ko gid
nga ang akon ginahigugma
indi maglakat palayo sa akon
kag indi man ko maghimo sang isa ka butang
nga ang akon hingugma magapalayo
maghigugmaanay kita
sang wala katapusan!

Emotions crafted in a very delicate way........Suman............a nice poem with a nice message............... Please comment on my poem 'A date with destiny'
I am in hostel from last five years.I can feel and understand the feelings deep from my heart.Very emotional poem.I liked reading it.
A Moving write from your pen Suman..Very beautifully you have depicted the feelings of child who is deprived of love from his parents. Loved the way you presented it.
There is a definite paucity of family life on PH. I suspect that, like me, many of us who are sensitive have been that way from a very early age, and crave some kind of surrogate family even if not ours. Everyone is the same, as you say, and all we need is love from a caring parent. Or used to. I am bereft of both parents now, but it was my mother's death when I was 13 that shaped my very life. Very moving poem.
