Sang Purnama

Dia menangis setiap pagi
Terkenang-kenang
Wajah suci
Yang kini terbit dalam mimpi
Di kala malam sunyi.

Dia merana di pangkal dada
Teringat-ingat
Wajah sengsara
Yang terbiar merana hidupnya
Tapi terlalu jauh untuk digapai
Untuk diseka air matanya.

Dan aku
Dalam keangkuhanku
Terus-menerus
Bermasam muka
Menunding jari
Dan berlalu pergi.

Nanti
Akan tiba saat
Untukku
Terkenang-kenang
Teringat-ingat.
Tapi alangkah malangnya
Apa yang tinggal
hanyalah jasad.

The forgetful one

I apologize
as I am always
The forgetful one.

The infinite love
The endless sacrifices
The act of forgiving
time and time again
The countless guidance
and care
The patience, everything,
That I have taken for granted,

I apologize, deeply.

It's so easy to forget
as it is so easy to regret

So I apologize
again,
with a heavy heart
that knows

A forgetful one will forget.

Questions

Sometimes people inquired

Not because they are curious
Or because they care
Or because they want to lend a hand
Or because they want to listen and
 to understand

It could be that
They just want to justify their own guilt
"At least I asked"
"At least I hear you out"
"At least I did my part"
"At least you can't blame me for not being there"

Sometimes people inquired
And their inquiries were answered
But the questions still remained.
