Silent Goodbye

I wished there were more

Never had enough

Of your soul within

This wreck of a heart

I still see your face

More and more each time

I fall asleep into dreams

Yes in my dreams

But like a setting sun

A goodbye was all I had

Held it in my hands

Didn’t want to let go

Now I am hollow

Because yesterday was done

Along with your cries and smiles

Left with only a dimming glimmer

Because I opened my hands

To let it fly away

Come together
Never hold back
See the flowers sway
To the breeze of words

Hold the sweet caress
Of the sun’s warm smile
That gently draws you nearer
To the sincere sky-like blue

Let the stillness be
A premonition of descent
Bridging your songs onto
The longing earth that is I

Hear my request
Let her whispers in
Drench them to my senses
Only you now may take the journey
Across dividing seas
And lands separated by time

Never before
A song playing
Melodiously presenting
The cries of its lyrics
Supposedly a helping hand
In discarding this shroud
Of thoughts lost in love

Never before
I walked away from it
Turning my back towards
The words that would bathe me
In blissful melancholy
And promises of
Moments that shine
Like the coming days

I am gone
I am away
Far from wishes
Of selfish senses

-batam at dawn, seventh of may, year 2006, in the solitude of my room-

Andai saja langit

Tahukah kau,
Pagi ini
Kugambar langit dengan senyum mu

Dengan awan-awan yang berarak
Kebentuk wajah indahmu

Satu hal yang tak dapat kulukis
Andai saja langit
Seindah matamu..

Untuk setiap pelukan
yang kau berikan
dengan kelembutan

Untuk setiap sapaan
yang kau lontarkan
dengan kasih yang menggetarkan

Untuk setiap senyuman
yang kau berikan
di setiap pagi yang menyejukkan

Untuk setiap doa-doa
yang kau panjatkan
dan hantarkan aku menggapai mimpi

Untuk mu wanita
yang terindah dalam hidupku
Maafkan aku,
ku hanya sanggup memanggilmu ‘ibu’

Sipata sai marulak-ulak do
Tingki ni hangoluan on
Songon bunga-bunga na hunsus
mose do di las ni ari

Mintop do muse las ni ari i
di haroro ni udan i
Asa mangolu muse
bunga-bunga na mose i

Sipata ndang tarulahan
Tingki ni hangoluan on
Songon uli ni rupa ni jolma
mago do di haroro ni hatuaon

Sipata ndang marhaujungan
Tingki ni hangoluan on
Songon halak na loja marlojong
ndang marnadapot sahat ni ujung na

Tingki i,
tutu do songon hahomion
sipata ndang tarhantusan

Should I?

Should I say
that you are my endless dreams
the one I long to be with each day
and lead me out of my solitude

Should I imagine you
as the Sun that gives life
to flowers in springtime
over the chilly winter

Should I compare you
with the water I drink
to end my thirst of love
and make my life worth living

Should I?
Should I write those unwritten words
because my love is simply indefinable?

Happy New Year!

As long as we have memories,
yesterday remains.
As long as we have hope,
tomorrow awaits.

Let the 2005 stays as fond memories and face the New Year with great hope of a better tomorrow for us and the world!

What does 2005 mean to you and what do you hope for 2006? Write them in the comments!
