* Oh lookey, I even have a Tagalog version. 😉
Kung gusto mo maging masaya, humanap ka ng taong tanggap ka. ‘Yung tanggap lahat ng meron ka at tanggap din lahat ng wala ka. ‘Yung kahit nasa’yo na lahat ng ayaw n’ya, babalewalain n’ya na lang dahil mahal ka n’ya talaga. Hindi n’ya pipiliting baguhin ka, tatanggapin na lang n’ya na ganun ka talaga. Isang tao na tanggap lahat ng kaweirduhan, katangahan, kalokohan, kagarapalan, at kung ano-ano pang kagaguhan mo. ‘Yung tanggap ka kahit dumidighay ka ng malakas na parang construction worker, tanggap ka kahit kain karpintero ka, tanggap ka kahit halos wala ka na kahihiyan sa mga pinaggagagawa mo pag nalalasing ka, tanggap ka kahit malakas ka tumawa na kala mo wala nang bukas, tanggap ka kahit mahilig ka gumala at pumunta kung saan saang lupalop ng Pilipinas, tanggap ka kahit hindi ka maganda sa umaga, tanggap ka kahit masungit ka paminsan minsan at naninigaw pag naiinis, tanggap ka kahit maitim ka, tanggap ka kahit mahilig ka sa foot spa with pedicure, tanggap ka kahit mahilig ka sa nail polish lalu na ‘yung kulay itim, tanggap ka kahit magastos ka. ‘Yung tanggap lahat ng mood swings mo, at pilit kang iniintindi. At dahil tanggap ka n’ya, kaya ka n’yang ipaglaban kahit ano pa sabihin ng iba, kahit pa sa pamilya n’ya. ‘Yung parang you and me against the world ang drama. At dahil tanggap ka n’ya, kaya n’ya ipagsigawan at ipagmalaki sa buong mundo na ikaw ang mahal n’ya. Ikaw lang wala nang iba…
It’s not a new post, really. I got this off my old blog again. I just suddenly remembered I wrote this. It’s sort of what I have in mind recently. Some points may no longer be applicable but some still strike the mark. 😀
I want someone who’ll send me a text message even before I wake up just to greet me good morning. I want someone who’ll pick me up at home and drive me around just because he wants to be with me. I want someone who’ll drink with me then later take care of me if I get piss drunk. I want someone who’ll call me when I get home and ask how my day went. I want someone who’ll get along well with my family and friends. I want someone who’ll do things for me not because I asked him to but because he just wants to. I want someone who won’t do things for me that he knows I can do on my own. I want someone who’ll go to the mall with me but will regulate my spending. I want someone who’ll ask me to stop my vices and yet understand when I cheat. I want someone who’s willing to get soaked in the rain with me because he feels it’s sweet to share an umbrella. I want someone who’s possessive and yet gives me freedom to live my life. I want someone who’s opinionated but won’t impose his beliefs on me. I want someone who’s okay with the fact that I have a lot of guy friends and yet gets jealous from time to time. I want someone who looks at other girls but remains faithful and loyal to me. I want someone who’ll argue with me and then hug me tight to kiss and make-up. I want someone who’ll criticize me and yet won’t make me feel less of a person. I want someone who’ll laugh with me and at me not out of mockery but just because it’s funny. I want someone who’ll tell me what he wants but won’t make me feel self-conscious about my defects and the things I lack. I want someone who’ll let me cry as long as I want and listen to me when I rant without interrupting me even once. I want someone who’ll accept me as I am but still inspire me to be better. I want someone who’ll give me a hug out of the blue. I want someone who will ask me for advice and yet won’t take it against me if it fails. I want someone who knows exactly when he needs to flatter me. I want someone who gives me stuff not because I ask but because he just wants to give them to me. I want someone who won’t show me it hurts when I hit him playfully but won’t hit me back if it really does. I want someone who’ll steal kisses when I least expect it. I want someone who can cry in front of me. I want someone who thinks of me at random parts of the day and lets me know it. I want someone who’ll tell me what time I should be home, yet know I will go home later than that and won’t give me a hard time about it. I want someone who’s honest even if what he will say will hurt me. I want someone who’s successful in his field and yet won’t make me feel inferior. I want someone who’s not afraid to introduce me to his family and friends, and doesn’t give a shit if they don’t like me. I want someone who’ll stand up for me when people put me down. I want someone who still chooses to be with me even if I have everything he says he doesn’t like. I want someone who’ll wait for me to get home so he can tell me good night before he sleeps. I want someone who makes an effort to be with me, no matter the odds. I want someone deep yet shallow. I want someone complex yet easy to figure out. I want someone who’ll make me smile after making me cry. I want someone who’ll put the pieces back together after breaking my heart. I want someone who’ll look me in the eye, tell me how much he loves me and mean it.
Watched this on Pilipinas Got Talent last night. It’s amazing! I’ve been watching it over and over. I really love Kaye’s voice. Yes, the vocalist is a “girl”. It’s also super inspiring to note that their keyboardist is differently abled but still very much talented. I’m a fan. 😀
