Magellan and Immortal Love

At this harbor, I'm welcoming you as the moon in the middle of the mist
Even Victoria’s keel [1] takes some tears back home, the southern voices
All I want is thee unbinding hair stack pieces
But you said, “Something happened with Captain Magellan indeed”

Therefore I am that Lapu-Lapu [2]: Adventurer killer
Because love is fatherland I stand up for, until I wither
And a waiting has become grave for days in suffer
So are you: a poem I’ve wrote with tears

"Love is immortal," thou say to the tides at foreshore
Like a solitude staying at heart, never leave for sure
And we are the dawn body missing sunrise in pure

But I very sure that love is giving and never taking
So battle in Mactan [3] I heard as usual sad story telling
Then anchor’s elevated, another journey is begin.

[1] Sailing Ship of Magellan
[2] Tribe which winning a battle of Mactan from coalition army between Datu Zula and Magellan.
[3] A little isle in Philippines. Near from Cebu Island. The battle happened in 27 April 1521.
