Malayo Pa ang Umaga/ The Morn is Yet so Far!




Malayo pa ang umaga,
kahit sa dilim... naghihintay pa rin!
...umaasang bukas ay may liwanang
sa aking buhay umaga ko'y aking hinihintay.


Sadya kayang ang buhay sa mundo
ay kay pait, walang kasing lupit
kailan kaya ako'y 'di na luluha?
at ang aking pangarap...
ay unti-unting matutupad!

Malayo pa ang umaga,
'di matanaw ang pag-asa
hanggang kailan matitiis ang paghihirap ko?
at sa dilim hinahanap
ang pag-asa na walang landas...

Kailan ba darating ang bukas para sa'kin?
Malayo pa ang umaga.


The Morn is yet so far...
Even in darkness, somberly awaiting!
... In the midst of the morrow's coming, hoping for the light,
Here in my life, yearning for the fresh new dawn!
 
Life it is? ...in this world a worthwhile,
Full of bitterness, Thorns a scourging!
Time whence to be, that tears shall roll no more?
And these pieces dreams...
Little by little be achieved!
 
Oh, The Morning's light is yet so far!
A glimpse of hope could find none.
How long can I withstand these sorrows?
And from these darkness
yearning for the hope which path has none!
 
Whence would be a morrow's coming?
The morn is yet so far!
