Sa una kong sulyap sa 'yong
Mga matang tila nalilito
Sa aking tuwa ako ay napaluha
Munting anghel na tulad mo
Ay biyaya ng Panginoon
Upang aking mahalin at alagaan
Kahit sa oras ng iyong laban
Maaasahan mo ako kailanpaman

Nais ko sanang sabihin sa 'yo
Na mahal na mahal kita
Inaalay ko ang awiting ito
Sa 'yo aking anak
Ah...

O kay bilis ng panahon
Ang buhay sadyang may hamon
Ika'y sinubok na ng pagkakataon
Higpit ng bawat yakap mo
Ang kumalinga sa iyo
Hanggang sa pinakahuli mong araw
Kani-kanina lang yakap kita
'Pag-gising ko ika'y bumitaw na

Nais ko sanang sabihin sa 'yo
Na mahal na mahal kita
Inaalay ko ang awiting ito
Sa 'yo aking anak
Ah... ah...

Hanggang sa ating muling pagkikita
Salamat sa 'yong ala-ala

Nais ko sanang sabihin sa 'yo
Na mahal na mahal kita
Inaalay ko ang awiting ito
Sa 'yo aking anak
Ah... ah...

Na mahal na mahal kita
Inaalay ko ang awiting ito
Sa 'yo aking anak
Ah...

    I often hear this heartbroken song at yes fm a month ago.. Honestly i don't like it that time. Because of the meaning. Its like a song for a child suffering in a decease or something and then suddenly gone, but now, i really appreciate this song specially the meaning not a as a mother but as a cousin and a sister. Our "ate kim"diagnosed to have a stage iv cancer last 2011 and only last week.. She's gone with her real father. Our god. We're just thankful that we have the chance to be with her for almost 2 years instead of 6 months.. I just wanna know what is the story of this song?

    To god be the glory.. Stay safe. Everyone. God bless.

    My heart is breaking everytime I hear this song, I find myself crying in the corner thinking what was happen to my baby. How can it be happen to her for the 35 weeks carrying her in my womb then, I lost her because of pregnancy complications. I said life is so unfair but I can't complain it, I know it's also my fault. I love my baby so much and she's my first child and I know she's an angel now and we will see each other someday. I love you Ellie!

    Maybe I will somehow feel relieved when I write what I feel here. For most people the day that Typhoon Yolanda came is unforgettable, and to me as well. That was the day that I was rushed to the hospital due to severe abdominal pain and found out I am pregnant for 5 weeks. My husband and I were so happy but only for a few minutes because the doctor said that the pregnancy cannot be continued and I have to undergo an operation as soon as possible because my life is at risk. I was so sad and I didn't want to have that operation, I wanted to fight for our first child but I couldn't do anything. My husband said he don't want to lose me also. Until now I am still having a hard time accepting what happened. My only memory of our child was a dream I had before the day of the operation. I always cry when I hear this song. The song says it all.

    My heart breaks as I listen to this song again and again and again. I now have a 3 month old little boy and this song tells me that reality is I don't hold the life of my little boy... anytime he may leave me ... and so this song tells every mom in the world that every moment we have with our child is the most precious gift we can have here on earth so let's not waste it. This song may be a sad one but it gives us a lesson... to treasure every moment, every milestone, every day, every second...
