Maraming Salamat

by K

On the day I realized you were not mine at all,
I knew I had to let go of not only you but of all the feelings that left me hanging.
And, thank you for that.

Nung araw na hindi ka nagparamdam kasi “Wala lang”,
Ginising mo ako sa katotohanang kailangan ko pa palang mas mahalin ang sarili ko.
Kailangan pala mas mahal ko ang sarili ko nang higit pa sa pagmamahal ko sa ‘yo.
Salamat.

On all the times you told me you don’t want to discuss “what we really are” because it’s damn confusing, I thank you for that.

Sa hindi pagmamahal sa akin gaya ng pagmamahal ko sa ‘yo,
Salamat.

On the day you told me that you cannot fully commit yourself to me even though you told me to commit myself to you in the beginning,
I told myself that I have made a mistake.
But, I thank you for that.

Maraming salamat sa lahat ng saya at sakit na dala mo.

Because now I’ve learned two great lessons I’ll take to the grave with me:

Ibibigay mo lang sa iba ang pagmamahal na kaya mong hindi bumalik sa ‘yo.
Walang labis, walang kulang.

And you can never expect to be loved by the way you love others. Because you never know if it will come back again to you.

Kaya salamat ha.
Maraming, maraming salamat.
