Imagine this
You are the air she breaths
Pulls you in 'cause she needs you
Then expels you to have relieve
So she could live

You are the air surrounding her
Brushing against her naked skin endlessly
When ever she moves her body around
But it would mean to follow her always
And you to adapt constantly

If you are this "air"
What would another day mean?
Today, tomorrow, the day after
And so on?

Well, I don't know you yet
But for me it would simply mean
Another day being with her
Where ever she may be


by Airini Sirait

Jika hari ini aku menyatakan:
aku cinta padamu,
aku tidak akan pernah menyesal
walau cinta ini akan terbang bersama sang waktu

Jika hari ini aku menyatakan:
aku merindumu
hingga denyut nadiku bergetar tiada henti,
aku tidak akan menangis
karena menahan sakit tak terperi.

Jika hari ini aku menyatakan:
Kau yang terindah dalam kelam hidupku,
aku tidak akan bersedih
walau tiada secercah sinar sedikitpun dari matamu.

Jika hari ini aku menyatakan:
Kau adalah Pangeran dalam tiap selaput kalbuku,
aku tidak akan hancur
walau aku bukanlah dewi mimpimu.

Aku akan menginginkanmu

Come to me, angel
to the place
where the sun always shines

Walk with me, angel
let me unwind all your fears

Come away with me, angel
I’ll take you to the land
where there is always summertime

Where you can listen to the breezy song
that the earth sings to you

Through the rain that drops
on the cheerful green grass

Through the wind that blows
to wipe away your tears

Smile for me, angel
What is an angel without a smile?

You Are

Hear my song
The song of missing you
Hear the melody
The melody of you
Hear my words of every part of you
That I want to be by your side

Sing for me
A song of the heart
Sing the melody
The melody of dreams
Sing through the night
The nights of loneliness
Stay with me until the morning comes

You are the melody of my life
You are every song that I write
You are every beat of my heart
You are, you are..

This poem has been composed as a song

You said;
True love never did run smooth
True love never did have to be together

Like a happy feast that must end
And left us with only fond memories

Like the bliss of summer
That must end when the chill of autumn comes

Like the beauty of sunset
That must end when the sun goes under the horizon

I wish you happiness
Although your happiness doesn’t belong to me

for a good friend..

A Text from God

Hi God,
I rang you yesterday
But your cell phone was off
So I left you a message
Just wanted to say
that I’ve been missing you

I’m sorry God,
I’m a bit lazy to come
to your house lately

Nothing personal
I just sometimes couldn’t cope
With the way your servants behave
Well, they are snobbish, aren’t they?
Yeah, I think you would agree with me

Well, I also wanted to say
Happy birthday!

Are you busy now, God?
Busy travelling the world
To attend your birthday celebration?

I hope you are doing well
Don’t be too tired with partying
Because sometimes when partying
I got a bit drunk and forget about anything else

But I’m sure you’re not like me
I know you like red wine
Because you always invite me to drink one
And I see that you weren’t drunk when we drank it together

That’s all what I wanted to say, God
I wanna have a rest now
See you tomorrow!

(After I wrote this letter, I got a text in my cell phone. It says:
Hi Martin! I’ve been missing you too! How is it going buddy? Believe me, I didn’t attend any of the parties! I’d love to attend though, but I just have no time for it. Yes, you’re right. I’ve been very busy these days travelling around the world to serve my people in hunger and sufferings. Well, I can’t really rely on my servants anymore. They are just too busy with sermons, and I don’t really like formality. Thanks for your message. Merry Christmas!”)
