You Are Shining With Beauty

If the moon is about love
that wrapped with gentleness,
and stars are about hopes
that wrapped with desire,
then, you are about humbleness
that wrapped with beauty...
keep shining my beautiful girl,
since you are my sunshine...


You Are Good For Nothing

When you go,
don't ever think that
I'll try to make you stay,
and maybe when you get back
I'll be off to find another way...

When after all this time
that you still owe,
you're still
the good-for-nothing I don't know
So take your gloves and get out
Better get out
While you can

When you go
Would you even turn to say
"I don't love you like I did yesterday"


The Most Beautiful Kiss

I hope these words
would break those borders
that prevent me to meet you...

But, however, even though
you don't see it all,
I will always by your side,
before the death take my soul,
giving you the most beautiful kiss,

thus with a kiss... I die...


Door Of My Soul Opened

It can be love,
if your stare opens
the door to the soul
and I find the house
I have been looking for.

Your eyes, my eyes,
kept in the different eyelids,
but meet in the pave
that has same destination...

(Dewi Lestari)


Seconds To Goodbye

It's time to say
good bye to you lady
The birds outside
already sing to escort
my steps
The horse can't wait
no longer for me

Don't close your eyes
even in a second
when I am leaving,
Once I have lived
in the warm of your light

I will never forget you


One Thing God Can't Do

God can do anything,
also take my life away.
But there is one thing that
God can't do,
erasing your name from my heart...


My Heart Is Fragile

My heart is a sheet of leaf
hold on, let me for a while
lay down here;
There is something I still want to stare at,
this pause is ever missed
a while is immortal before you wipe
your friend in each morning...

(Free translation of Sapardi Djoko Damono poem titled 'Hatiku Selembar Daun')


It Hurts When Missing You

I want to miss anything;
the street where we used to be together,
the birds used to sing around us,
those dreams of you when you were not around,

I want to miss anything;
as long as not missing you...
since I wouldn't be able to handle it...


How Is Loving?

Loving is not how we forget,
but how we forgive.
not how we listen,
but how we understand.
not how we see,
but how we get.
not how we let go,
but how we hold on...



Falling In Love Because Of You

How can I hold the rain falls
when there is a cloud.
How can I prevent the leaves fall,
when there is a wind.
How can I not fall in love,
when there is you...
