Pine trees in the forest

Which sat alone

Scream silently

Mountain winds in courtesy

Greet and fly to somewhere

Narrow trails wrapped in mist

My blood and my soul

Swallowed by earth as one

Sparkling fireflies emit silences

I walk only with feelings

Breathe only with determination

I climb full with puzzles

Where is my sun?

I hit a branch lies athwart

Stopping my odyssey

A query in a dejected heart

When will it be answered?

It is here inside the chest

Dripping my love firing my life

It is here inside the soul

Flowing my desire

Following Your guidance.

DIMANAKAH MATAHARIKU

 

Pokok pinus di tengah hutan

Terduduk yang sendiri

Menjerit tak bersuara

Angin gunung basa basi

Menyapa dan terbang entah kemana

Jalan setapak terbungkus kabut

Darahku dan jiwaku

Menyatu ditelan bumi

Kerlap-kerlip kunang-kunang memancarkan kebisuan

Aku berjalan hanya dengan mata hati

Bernafas hanya dengan tekad

Aku mendaki penuh dengan teka-teki

Dimanakah matahariku

Aku terantuk sebatang dahan

Melintang di depanku

Menghentikan pengembaraan

Tanda tanya gundah hati

Kapankah akan terjawab

Disinilah di dalam dada

Menetes termurun cintaku bara hidup

Disinilah di dalam jiwa

Mengalir hasratku

Mengikuti petunjukMu
