Iti parbangon,
Lua sakbay ti init-
Mangnayon pigsak.

In the early morn,
The tears before the sunrise-
Adds to my strength.

Your utter silence,
The quiteness of your words.

Lemmeng

Bara ti agek,
inlemmeng iti ridep,
lammin ti rikna.

The warmth of a kiss,
hidden by the sleepiness,
and coldness of emotions.
