Florante - Handog (English translation)

English translation

Offering

it wasn't long ago
all the dreams i had were difficult to attain
but because of you
i've achieved this moment i had always wished to gain
i want you to have my thanks and gratitude
even though it's only just a ballad
 
it wasn't long ago
i was living like a beggar - in the streets - so poor
but because of you
both my tummy and my pocket are empty no more
that is why this song that i am singing
is something that i would like to offer you
 
i'll grow old and i'll pass away someday
but i know that there's a song
i will leave behind for you, as remembrance
just because, at one time, we were all together
 
it wasn't long ago
no one wished to listen to the ballads that i wrote
but because of you
people heard me and my mind and soon they understood
that is why im happy to consider you
as one of my ever precious friends
 
i'll grow old and i'll pass away someday
but i know that there's a song
i will leave behind for you, as remembrance
just because, at one time, we were all together
