Subukan mong alalahanin ang ilang mga detalye

Alalahanin ang damit ng iyong minamahal

Nang sa gayo’y masabi mo sa araw ng kanyang pagyao

Huling nakitang suot-suot ang ganito-ganyan,

Balabal na kupas, puting sombrero.

 

Subukan mong alalahanin ang ilang mga detalye.

Pagkat wala silang mga mukha

At nagkukubli ang kanilang mga kaluluwa

At magkatunog kanilang pag-tangis at pag-tawa

At pantay lang ang pananahimik sa paghiyaw,

Gitna ng sinat at lagnat ang init ng katawan,

Wala silang buhay sa labas ng makitid na lugar na ito,

At walang lapida, walang katulad, walang alaala.

 

– based on Yehuda Amichai’s poetry “TRY TO REMEMBER SOME DETAILS.”

Translated into Filipino by Liza Magtoto. Additional lyrics by Vince de Jesus for PETA’s CAREDIVAS.
