My head is spinning! But..



"It's funny how having a headache can sometimes make me think straight."

Nanti



Suramnya malam tanpa mu,
Tingginya langit gelap dan biru.
Di sini aku berdiri terpaku,
Selamanya akan ku tunggu.

Masa menjadi lawan,
Cita-cita ku sampai ke awan.
Bertemulah kita di sebuah taman,
Genggam tangan ku wahai teman.

Bayangan malap menusuk hati,
Aku bilang hari demi hari.
Tunggulah aku wahai bidadari,
Akan kita bersama disuatu hari.

Kasih sayang dan cinta,
Hanya dengan izin yang Maha Esa.
Kekuatan diri hanya dalam doa,
Semoga diberkati ikatan kita.

Note: This poem was titled 'Akan ku tunggu...' which sounds like a Malay song and doesn't seem fitting with the poem. So now you have a new one. (07042016)

The Tattered Road





How can I sleep?
When everything around me is crashing down.
I feel anxious, I am worried and I am scared.
So many questions and possibilities, so many scenarios,
Which will be played out? I guess no one truly knows.

I sink deeper and deeper into the floor,
The air escapes my lungs, the body aches so much more.
Why does it have to be hard when it is better easy?
I want so much to be whole and not empty.

I hear your voice, you cry and you sigh,
Ever we wonder at the question 'Why?'
We love and care so much for each other,
But why is it to others it's such a bother?

I pray that we can remain together forever,
To be each others strength and support.
To share our lives, our joys, our tears.
I hope our prayers will be answered.
For I do not want our love to be sundered.

Verily, along with every hardship is relief~(Qur'an 94:5)



Note: 'The most tiring trial of mine.' used to be the title for this poem. Quite lengthy. Decided to change to this one. (07042016)
