The official music video is out yesterday. Saw it this morning and I was like: Aw, pinagpawisan ang mata ko. (My eyes sweated out! Read: I cried!). Knowing Yeng and her passion, you will not doubt that she meant every word she wrote and sang. One word: Sincerity!
It’s everyone’s wish to find love. Sometimes, we even wonder if love will come. If it will come, when will it be? When it comes, there will still be questions. Is he the one? Am I the one for him? There will be doubts that why love requires faith. Finding love-real love is like finding a rare treasure.
Proverbs 18:22: The man who finds a wife finds a treasure, and he receives favor from the LORD. (NLT)
“Ikaw” is a story of Yeng’s quest for love. She longed for love, she doubted love to come and now she have found it. She have found the one whom she decides to love for the rest of her life. She have found the proper noun for the word “Ikaw”. The “Ikaw” whom she considers a gift from God, the “Ikaw” that defines love.
Ikaw ang pag-ibig na hinintay
Puso ay nalumbay nang kay tagal
Ngunit ngayo’y nandito na
Ikaw, ikaw ang pag-ibig na binigay
Sa akin ng Maykapal
Biyaya ka sa buhay ko
Ligaya’t pag-ibig ko’y ikaw
