(I am unable to find the translation by Rolando Tinio, sorry powz)

Rama, Hari, the musicale, is the epic love story between the deities Rama, Hari or Vishnu, and Sita.
This is a song by the goddess Sita

Bawat patak man ng ulang masinsin

Let each drop of rain

Ay lagyan ng talim

Cut like a blade of pain

Ako ay sasayi

I will reign
I will rein it in.

Di ko iindahin
Ang ulos at hiwa
Ng mumunting patalim

Let this skin rend open
Let a million knives rain
I will rein it in
My love will reign.

Ang iyong kalinga

Your arms are my nestle

Ay kanlungang matibay

My home and my citadel

Lilim nito ay langit

Your arc is my sanctuary

Na aking tanggulan

My fortress, my Rama, Hari

Pag ito’y natiklop

Pray, should all these break

Lalantahin ng araw

The sun will wreak havoc

Lulunurin ng unos

The storms will decimate

Ang marupok kong buhay

My fragile life, my fallen fate.

Aking hihintayin

I await

Ang iyong pasabing

Your missive from above

Nagbalik ka na, mahal.

That you have returned to me,

my love.
