My Parents’ Theme Song

Pangako
By The Flippers

Pag-ibig ko sa ‘yo
Ko lang ibibigay
Pagkat ikaw lamang
Ang tangi kong mahal
Lumayo ka man
Ako’y maghihintay
Ganyan kita kamahal …

Lumuha man ako
Nang dahil sa iyo
‘Di ko magagawang
Magalit ng totoo
Pagkat ikaw lamang
Ang tanging mahal ko
Pag-ibig ko’y sa ‘yo …

Chorus:
Ang aking buhay
Ay lagi ng masaya
Buhat ng tayo ay pinag-isa …

Pag-ibig ko sa ‘yo
Ko lang ibibigay
Pagkat ikaw lamang
Ang tangi kong mahal
Lumayo ka man
Ako’y maghihintay
Ganyan kita kamahal …

Lumuha man ako
Nang dahil sa iyo
‘Di ko magagawang
Magalit ng totoo
Pagkat ikaw lamang
Ang tanging mahal ko
Pag-ibig ko’y sa ‘yo …

Chorus:
Ang aking buhay
Ay lagi ng masaya
Buhat ng tayo ay pinag-isa …

Ang aking buhay
Ay lagi ng masaya
Buhat ng tayo ay pinag-isa …

I cry everytime I recall this song. This is my parents’ theme song. More than that, I was a witness to the ups and downs of their relationship. There was a time when I thought that they would separate. My mother was very patient of my father’s shortcomings. For her, a family must stay together no matter what and there is always a chance to change for the better. I am not saying that my father is a bad person. Just like any other man, he had his inferiorities. My mother was successful in her career and at one point, she was given an award for her exemplary job performance. I guess, they were not able to settle their issues early on their marriage; it just stayed there unnoticed.

I knew in my heart that no matter how many times my father made my mother cry, she was the only one in his heart. And my father is not a bad person as what other people think. We had our issues but at the end of the day, we were still together; dining together and talking about the day’s events.

  1. I can always relate to this song…

    This song is my mother’s lullaby when I was still a baby…a boy… a child… its always lingers to my ear…till now.

    More than that, my mothers love is pure not only to my father but to us all her siblings…
