A Song for my Man

A Special Song for my Man
           
I came across this song again one random evening.  It’s one of the most beautiful pieces of OPM I have ever heard in such a long time.  I may have heard it a lot of times before, but it is not since recently that it had become so meaningful to me.  It reminded me so much of the great love stories I have read and seen in movies.  It is that love song that ultimately depicts a woman’s timeless and unconditional love and devotion to her beloved, her Man.

It takes a very special kind of experience with love to truly relate and be inspired of this song…though simple in melody and lyrics; it brings about that certain grasp of strength and courage in a person from just loving and being loved and knowing that no matter what the future will be for them, the love and commitment vowed will go beyond time and any human condition.

Will you still honestly love your man even when you forget about him?  Remember nothing from him---not even his name?


This song, as I always find myself singing along to it, says that I will surely do.

How about you? Will you

To my man, Dustin, this song is for you. Always remember that my heart will never stop loving you…NO MATTER WHAT….

Here's a simple slideshow I made to accompany this beautiful song



Sakaling Malimutan Ka
Sung by: Carol Banawa
(With English Translation)


Sakaling pag gising

Should I wake up and

Malimutan Ka
Forget you

Sa puso'y may guhit
In my heart is a sketch

Ng iyong mukha
Of your face

At kung kailangang
And should I need to

Ngayo'y magpaalam
Say goodbye now

Sana'y bukas nasa piling ko'y ikaw
I hope to still be with you tomorrow


Mawalay man sa aking isip
If one day I may forget you

Puso ko ay iibigin ka
My heart will still love you

Hanggang sa walang hanggan
Until the end of forever

Ang langit man sati'y pawiin
And if our heaven shall end

Puso'y uulit-ulitin pa
My heart will remember over and over again

Ang pangako mong pag-ibig nating dalawa
The promise of our True Love

Sakaling ang isip
If in my memory

Malimutan ka
I will forget you

Sa puso'y may ukit ng iyong mukha
I shall find your face carved in my heart

At kung isang araw tayo'y magpaalam
And if one day, we shall say goodbye

Habang buhay Nasa puso ko'y ikaw
For as long as live, I will have only you in my heart


Mawalay man sa aking isip
If one day I may forget you

Puso ko ay iibigin ka
My heart will still love you

Hanggang sa walang hanggan
Until the end of forever

Ang langit man sati'y pawiin
And if our heaven shall end

Puso'y uulit-ulitin pa
My heart will remember over and over again

Ang pangako mong pag-ibig sinta
The promise of your Love

Kahit pa ika'y malimutan
For even if I lose all my memories

Sa 'king puso ay iibigin ka
In my heart, I will always Love you


……………………………
Our road to forever is long.  And I am not going live for that single moment in the future.  I will live for every single day that we are together. Each simple moment with you will be a piece of Heaven here on earth.  We may not have the classic love story I used to dream of…and may live in our own modern tragedy…as of the moment, I will eternally be grateful to have lived this lifetime where you exist, for letting me be part of you and for having this chance of commitment to just be yours for as long as God permits.

Forever and ever, Baby….
