Where Am I Going?
Lord, grant that I am traveling
In a spiral, not a circle
Growing into my true self
Not just marking time.

Grant me a vision, Lord
Show me the way to go
Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow
May I move closer to the goal.

Teach me to go deeper and higher
To see and hear the truth
To recognize reality
And to grow in you.


by Karen L. Oberst
Like a frog, I leap into my new life.
Like a butterfly, I burst the bonds of my cocoon.
Like a new formed bud on a limb, I push my head into the sunlight,
Like an eagle chick, I stretch my wings and fly.

Did you see me in the tadpole?
Did you see me in the cocoon?
Did you see me on the tree's bare branch?
Did you see me in the egg?

God sees us.
Sees not only who we are
But who we could be.
Sees the possibility behind the reality.

God knows how high this frog can leap.
God knows how much beauty this butterfly can spread.
God knows how much fruit this blossom can produce.
God knows how high this eagle can soar.



May I catch my maker's vision
And leap and spread beauty and fruit and soar,
To fulfill God's plan for this human being -
To be the blessing I could be in this world.

When the rain starts to pour

You've got a friend in me"

You're free at last."

Waiting

Wanting,
lusting,
to be held,
to be loved,
to feel warmth,
to feel your beating heart.
Wanting to be sheltered from the cold,
heartless winds.
Falling into invisible arms;
into an abyss of love.
Wishing,
hoping,
that my desires will be filled;
my desires of loving warmth.
Wanting to be held,
comforted,
loved.
Dreaming of passionate embraces,
of tender kisses,
loving words,
romantic nights.
Waiting for undying love.
I've been sitting around this life for years,
Not enough laughs and too many tears.
Trying to figure out where it all went,
These wasted years that I have spent.

Searching for something to go beyond,
Life's a stone skipping across a pond.
At the last skip, it hits with a splash,
Down the stone sinks, gone in a flash.

Pushing and pulling, it's tearing apart,
Poking and prodding an underused heart.
This dark velvet curtain that hides my soul,
Living this life has taken it's toll.

In a flash of bright light, the curtain is torn,
Tumbling down all tattered and worn.
Revealing new life, a child within,
Born free of hate, of suffering and sin.

Now my eyes see what has never been told,
Striving forth happy, confident and bold.
Into a world that's unfamiliar but friendly,
Into this new life my spirit will send me.

Living and laughing, loving it all,
I stood myself up and answered the call.
The darkness has gone, replaced by the light,
I gave up the darkness with hardly a fight.

I've been sitting around this life for years,
With laughter aplenty and hardly a tear.
Now I can see just where it all went,
Cherish every moment of this new life I've spent.

Selamat Hari Lebaran
Mohon maafkan segala kesalahan

sampai kata maaf kau berikan
Tapi rembulan tak bisa kuhentikan
karenanya hanya tersisa harapan
kebaikan hatimu untuk memaafkan

Segelas gula
Sesendok vanila
Kumasak jadi geplak
Kuhadiahkan di hari fitri
untuk sarapan pagi.
Sambil kuharap kau sudi
memberiku pengertian
dan pengorbanan
dengan melupakan
semua kesalahan masa silam
================================
Pengertian
Pengorbanan
Mendengarkan
Memaafkan
Hanya itu yang bisa kutawarkan
di hari lebaran

Puasa melatih menahan keinginan
Tarawih melatih tabah lawan kelelahan
Tadarus melatih sabar lawan kemalasan
Ramadhan adalah hari pelatihan
Lebaran adalah saat kemenangan
Selamat merayakan hari Lebaran
Mohon maafkan segala kesalahan

Andai waktu mau berhenti sejenak
Kita bisa lebih lama nikmati ramadhan
Tapi waktu tak mau kompromi
Telah datang hari Idul Fitri
Doaku untuk keberhasilan kita melatih diri
Semoga puasa membuat hidup kita lebih berarti

Duhai cinta yang meraja
di bulan puasa
Setelah hari raya tiba

Kesalahanku bergantang-gantang
mohon dibiarkan hilang dari pandangan
Noda dosaku yang bagai bayangan
mohon dihapuskan dengan cahaya terang
================================
Perut melilit lapar
Kerongkongan kering
Mata berat bekas tadarus
Namun tangan tetap gagah
menyandang senapan
Tubuh tetap tabah berlari kencang
melawan serbuan tank penjajah
yang menjarah rayah tanah.
Rayakan Idul Fitri
dengan niat suci
bebaskan Masjid Kota Suci
dari cengkraman penjajah keji
================================
Disini aku berdiri
penuh kesadaran diri
atas banyaknya duri-duri
kutancapkan melukai hati
Demi hubungan baik kita
kumohon di hari lebaran
sudilah kau hapuskan
semua dosa dan kesalahan
yang pernah kulakukan

puisi lebaran – puisi-puisi hari raya idul fitri romantis 1

Aku minta maaf….
Kalau selama ini aku ga bisa jadi kekasih yang baik buat kamu
Mungkin kamu akan merasa lebih tenang
kalau aku ga bersama kamu lagi
Mungkin kamu akan merasa lebih tentram
kalau aku ga mengusik kehidupan kamu lagi
Tapi asal kamu tahu…
Sampai kata-kata ini ditulis,
bahkan sampai berkali-kali dibaca
Cinta itu masih ada untuk kamu !!!

RINDU
DI MALAM HARI Q MERENUNG
MEMIKIRKAN WAJAH DIRIMU

DITEMANI KEGELAPAN MALAM
DAN DERU ANGIN MALAM

DIRIMU MENGHILANG
BAGAI TERBAWA ANGIN
DAN…………
BAGAI DI TELAN BUMI

DI MANAKAH GERANGAN DIRIMU MENGHILANG?

PANDANGI LANGIT malam
perhatikan BINT@NG
COBA renungi aku
kau kan temukan bayang WAJAH KU

teringat shair lagu dari mu
terlalu lembut,terlalu sahdu ku dengar
namun mengapa seiring berjalanya waktu
baru ku tau kau bukanlah miliku

janji mu terlalu indah……
pedangmu adalah lidah
yang mengoyak hati ku
dengan segala janji manis mu

Pernah berfikir tuk kembali
Namun…………
Teringat skit hati yang kau beri
Bahkan terlalu sulit tuk bayangkan
Kau menjadi kenangan

CINTA
Cinta bagai misteri…
Tiba-tiba datang, Tiba-tiba pergi
Pabila datang membahagiakan Hti
Pabila pergi menyakiti Hti

Kau datang dalam hati
Mengisi kekosongan hti ni
Memberi kebahagiaan bagi hti ni

Karna dirimu, diriku bahagia
Karna dirimu, diriku tertawa
Karna dirimu, diriku bersedih
Karna dirimu pula, diriku menangis

puisi lebaran – puisi-puisi hari raya idul fitri romantis 5

Disaat langit tlah terlihat mendung, disaat awan tebal tlah menyelimuti hati dan disaat rasa rindu itu tlah datang padaku, aku merasa sangat tersiksa olehnya. Tlah lama aku coba untuk membujuk hati ini agar bisa menerima dia sebagai pengganti orang yang aku sayangi yang tlah pergi meninggalkan aku, namun ternyata tak semudah saat aku mengnal lalu mencintainya dulu. Hati ini terasa beku oleh kisah lalu, hati ini masih merasakan sakit oleh hujaman dusta yang dia lakukan padaku.

puisi lebaran – puisi-puisi hari raya idul fitri romantis 6

Saat kata terucap dengan manis
Mengapa tak hanya diam
Kau semakin menghancurkan ku
Walau ku tak mengerti maksud hatimu

Hati??
Mengapa s’lalu menyebut hati
Perasaan??
Tak adakah kata lain

Kau bilang kan menjaga Perasaan ku
Tapi kini kau menyakitiku
Kau hancurkan hatiku
Perasaanku

Tak sadarkah kau
Dimana hatimu?
Kata-katamu manis
Semanis lidahmu mengucap

Tapi telingaku sakit saat mendengarnya
Bagai tersambar petir
Begitu teganya dirimu
terhadap cinta suciku……………………………………..

liana,

Cinta

Perih yang mengiris
luka yang menyayat
hanya sepenggal kisah cinta..
akhir cinta yang kecewa..
bila tlah melekat di sukma
sgala bahagia yang hadir hanyalah perhiasan…
dan bunga yang masih mekar
menundukkan kepala menahan beban
tersenyum di atas seluruh senyum sang taman…
cinta… cinta.. cinta…
mencintai sang Cinta adalah yang paling abadi

Adakah yang mencari cinta sejati? kadang cinta datang terlambat.. saat sang bunga tlah berpendamping, tak ada lagi yang boleh menyentuhnya… namun rasa yang muncul bukan kesalahan yang harus dicerca ataupun untuk dipermasalahkan… cinta hanyalah rasa yang membuat kita hidup… lebih hidup dengan perasaan cinta yang sempurna… dan jika hidup tanpa cinta yang kita inginkan,,, sepertinya, kita telah kehilangan separuh dari hidup kita… tapi.. meski tanpa cinta itu, kita masih bisa hidup dengan separuh kehidupan yang kita miliki.. atau bahkan kita menemukan cinta yang baru.. yang akan siap mengisi kenangan-kenangan kita dengan kisah yang baru… cinta.. cinta… orang rela mati demi cinta.. namun itu adalah hal terbodoh yang dilakukan demi cinta.. karena dengan demikian kita akan kehilangan cinta dari sang Cinta… selamat mencintai cinta kalian… sgala yang tlah terlewat,, jangan disesali… bersyukurlah, karena setidaknya kita telah diberi waktu untuk mengenal orang seperti dia… bahkan sempat memilikinya…

ku semai malam bersama sepi dan duka lara hati
melamun jauh menerawang dinginya dinding malam

kusandarkan jiwaku pada dinginya
kusatukan jiwaku pada hembusnya

senyum masam duka lara
terangkai besama dingin dan hembusnya

kabut asmara terperosok
dalam terjal gelap tanpa titian

pedar cahaya cinta padam
tanpa sekerlip cahaya tersisa..

gelap sunyi sepi
gelap sunyi sepi
gelap sunyi sepi
gelap sunyi sepi

tak kan berhenti menyelimuti

qu sangat membencimu…
karena kau gak pernah mengerti perasaan wanita..
kau menyukai wanita hanya demi kenikmatan sesaat…

gk mencintai wanita itu dengan setulus hati mu…
gk pernah rela berkorban sedikit pn demi wanita…
apalagi rela demi cinta….

mudah2an kau mendapat balasan yg setimpal ,,,
atas perbuatanmu kepada wanita…

LEBARAN TELAH TIBA
 
Bulan Ramadhan telah usai
Dan lebaran telah tiba
Yaitu hari yang dinanti-nanti-kan
Oleh umat muslim dan muslimat

 Selamat hari lebaran
 Saatnya maaf-maafan
 Minal aizin walfa izin
 Mohon maaf lahir dan batin

Lebaran adalah hari
Yang sangat indah
Karena kita bagaikan
Seperti bayi yang baru lahir

 Karya: Geyan Fatihah.
================================
Fajar 10 terakhir - Puisi Lebaran

Ku tatapi merah biru langit yg bisu,
Akhir fajar Ramadhan nan ayu.
Banyak ungkapan hati tlah didapati,
buah madrasah i'tikafiy di bulan suci.
Meluap dan tak rela terpendam,
dan kemudianpun aku bergumam...
"selamat tinggal wahai ramadhan...
Akankah Rabb-mu mempertemukan kita kembali.
Selamat jalan malam-malam yg mulia...
Perkenankan ku tuk mengingat kemesraan kita.
Disini kutulis janjimu, menungu.
walau sebelas bulan ku sabar termangu..."

oleh: windi iskandar


Ketika Tiba Hari Yang fitri

Krtika berkilau embun pagi
Dan merekah sinar mentari
Satu kupinta kepada ilaahi
Semoga jiwa kembali suci
Selamat Hari Raya Idul Fitri

Ketika ramadhan telah lepas
Tiada dzikir yang lebih pantas
Selain takbir bagi pemilik ‘Arsy.

Ketika takbir telah bergema
Tiada yang lebih bermakna
Selain pintu maaf yang dibuka.
Selamat lebaran, semoga diterima amalan,
yang ikhlas dilakukan, selama Ramadhan.

 oleh: Al Habib


Ketika Ramadhan Pergi

Sebagai bulan yang kucintai
aku sedih saat kau pergi
tak banyak yang kuberi
saat bersamamu setiap hari
Alangkah malunya hati ini
kesempatan yang diberi Ilahi
tak banyak kumanfaati
Betandan-tandan pahala yang Dia janji
seolah-olah sesuatu tak berarti
Masih banyak waktu aku terbuai
sesuatu tak bermanfaat bagi diri
Banyak kesempatan beramal
kubiarkan berlalu tanpa arti
Namun aku masih berharap kemurahan Ilahi
Walau hanya sedikit amal ibadah Ramadhan ini
Membawa diriku selangkah menaiki
Tangga ketakwaan pada Ilahi
Selamat Hari Raya Idul Fitri
Mohon Maaf lahir dan batin
Semoga puasa sebulan membawa kita
mencapai derajad takwa
oleh: Okky


Kematian…

Bila tahu esok kematian datang
Segala urusan kecil terlupakan
Segala tetek bengek diabaikan
Segala keputusan ditimbang matang
Abaikan alasan dangkal dan kekanak-kanakan
Pentingkan nasib setelah kematian
Utamakan hikmah dan kebenaran
Teguh disiplin di jalan Tuhan
Karena semua materi ditinggalkan
Harta dan jabatan tak dibawa ke kuburan
Hanya amal kebenaran yang jadi kawan
Selamat Hari Raya Idul Fitri
Segala kesalahan mohon dimaafkan
Semoga kita menjadi insan bertakwa

Sandarkan keteguhanmu pada dinding realiti sejenak…
Pandangi kesabaran di sekeliling katulistiwa bayangmu..
Tekstur pendewasaan akan semakin terlihat meruak…
Dan tangisan, akan terlihat berarti menjaring kiasan seiring waktu..


Amati lilin yang menyala dalam gelap kamarmu..
Apa kau melihat warna lain selain pancaran apinya?
Kau tahu ada berapa warna yang terselimut pada sinarnya?
Amati saja, menjadi empirismu saat nanti kau tahu..

Masih dalam gelap kamarmu..
Apa kau takut?
Padamkan mahkota api lilinmu itu..
Amati saja, kau bukan penakut..



Mungkin akan menjadi sebuah kuatrin nanti..
Saat jatidiri perlahan bersua..
Meskipun simpulan tak tentu mengerti..
Namun elegi tak kan ada saat kau menjamah..

Sekarang mendekatlah…
Lembah dilema akan mampu kau arungi..
Permainan akan segera kau sudahi..
Dan rianglah, kau akan menang nanti..



Sekarang mendekatlah..
Mendekat pada entitas kesadaranmu..
Rangkum apa yang harus menjadi obsesimu..
Yang Maha melihat akan selalu melihat..

Langitmu akan selalu di atas mahkotamu..
Miliki nyata yang mengalir merajaimu..
Selalu kini lapangkan segala keikhlasan batin..
Karena esok harapan mengajarimu tentang apa yang kau anggap tak mungkin..

I am here because there is no refuge
Finally, from my self
Until I confront my self in the eyes
And hearts of others, I am running.
Until I suffer them to share my secrets,
I have no safety from them.
Afraid to be known, I can know
Neither my self nor any other, I will be alone.
Where else but in our common ground,
Can I find such a mirror?
Here, together, I can at least appear
Clearly to my self not as the giant
Of my dreams nor the dwarf of my fears,
But as a person, part of a whole
With my share in its purpose.
In this ground, I can take root and grow
Not alone anymore as in death,
But alive to my self and to others.
Perasaan yang membuncah
Membawamu ke dalam ruang bimbang yang dalam..
Cinta yang tersakiti
Membawamu ke dalam kesedihan yang berujung sesal..
Kini,
Tak perlu kau larut dalam sedih tangismu..
Waktu dapat membuat hatimu tersadar..
Walau tak sepenuhanya
Menghapus indah kenanganmu..
Kini,
Tak perlu kau sesali semua yang tlah terjadi,
Hikmah dapat membantumu
Menemukan sebuah jalan,,
Kehidupan tak pernah menyediakan ruang kosong dari penyesalan,,
penyesalan mampu memberikan selaksa pelajaran dan kearifan,,
Hidup bukan sebuah perjalan tanpa arti
Sebuah kenangan meberi banyak dorongan untuk berjuang memberikan yang terbaik bagi hidup,,
Semua dorongan itu mebawa dampak bagi rasa yang kita alami,,
Penyesalan bukan sebuah kata yang buruk,,
Hidup akan menjadi terang kala kita berhasil melepaskan penyesalan,,
Dan merubahnya menjadi sesuatu yang indah.
Cobalah syukuri..
Apa yang tlah tercipta...
Inilah indahnya hidup yang kita jalani...
Sesungguhnya kebahagiaan adalah
Dari seberapa besar kau mensyukuri apa yang tlah kau dapat saat ini..
Hanya orang-orang yang tidak sadar saja yang membiarkan penyesalan berlalu begitu saja tanpa bekas berarti dalam hidupnya...
" Mengalir dari luar nalar sbuah prediksi ekstrovert yg akan ku lawan dngan ego si hitam tnpa pduli dengan logika yg mengarus..." (ryo jeo)

ungkapan abstrak dari sebuah jiwa....
ungkapan yang muncul tiba-tiba..
menyayangi kesedihan yang kelam..... Lihat Selengkapnya
namun tak berarti menjadi tenggelam..

kebodohan memang menjalar pada setiap dinding,,
dan ego dengan mudahnya berhamburan terbanting,,
saat hati kecil berbicara tntang kelusuhan...
saat itu pun menghilang tanpa ada jejak resapan..

Keluhan,,,sebuah maya sepertinya...
Kesedihan,,,sebuah bayangan sepertinya...
Kebimbangan....tak beda dengan keduanya..
Senyuman...ya..itu yang harus kau lakukan...

Detik ini akan merubah segalanya...
Segalanya melawan kesedihan...
Detik ini akan memperlihatkan segalanya..
Segalanya tentang senyuman.... ^_^

Merangkul kesedihan ..
Sama eratnya dengan kegembiraan..
Tanpa tenggelam..
Tanpa larut dalam ratapan...

Nafas - nafas tersengal gontai. .
Berkejaran seperti air menepis pantai. .
Melihat sebagian bentuk kegetiran dan kesakitan. .
Menjadi musuh bebuyutan Kebahagiaan..

Selalu menjadi guru kehidupan..
Memberi pilu hinga menjadi serpihan...
Membawa bunga-bunga kebijaksanaan..
Turut serta kedewasaan, kearifan dan kematangan...

Menginspirasi kesatuan jiwa jelata..
Mungkin seperti itu yang terasa...
Bahwa ada wajah lain sebenarnya..
sebuah entitas di luar kesadaran abstrak...

Aku, Ataupun Kamu...
Berterimakasihlah..
Kesedihan membawa hikmah..
Rasakanlah Sesaat...

Kelapangan hati membawa nikmat...
Kesenangan bukan kebahagiaan...
Kesedihan Merangkul kesenangan...
Kesedihan memudarkan senyuman..

Aku, Ataupun Kamu...
Berbahagialah...
Tuhan memberikan kesedihan...
Rasakanlah Sesaat...

Keraguan hanya menyesatkan...
Keikhlasan bukan Kepasrahan...
Tersenyumlah bahagia akan melekat...
Tersenyumlah dan rasakan kesedihan sesaat....


Demi Subuh..
Saat Langit kosong
Bersih
Bulan Menghilang
Saat taman, jalan, pepohonan
Mengilat
Basah
Hitam Keperakan..

Demi subuh..
Saat kau kembali seperti bayi
Hanya menatap
Belum perlu melangkah...

Demi subuh...
Saat sebelum cahaya
mengusik
dan kau menyusut
Luluh
menjadi Mereka...

Entah apa yang ada di benakku saat ini
Entah apa yang aku pikirkan
Aku tak begitu tahu dan menyadari..
Iblis begitu bersahabat denganku

Menangis bukan sebuah jalan..
Terlalu banyak yang aku turuti..
Menuruti kesesatan demi perasaan sesaat..
Menuruti kemauan hitam demi kepuasaan


Entah apa yang ingin aku lakukan saat ini
Seakan tak ada lagi jalan untuk keluar
Aku bergulat dengan penyesalan kini
Ego merajai dan mengutus ragaku untuk terbang

Ya Tuhan, tak inginkah Engkau memanggilku..
Mempersilahkanku memasuki Bara MU..
Ya Tuhan, tak inginkah Engkau menghentikan langkahku..
Menghentikan juga nafasku, agar tak lagi mengenal duniaku,,

Ya Tuhan, sadarkah aku telah memberikanMu keburukan...?
Atau malaikatMu memang tak sanggup lagi menimangku..?
Inikah sebuah takdir besar yang Engkau berikan..?
Atau otak ku yang memang selama ini membeku..?

Ya Tuhan, Masih pantaskan aku merenung?
Kembali menyesali semua yang telah terulang...
Kembali untuk kesekian kali menangis dalam hati...
Mendekatimu dan memohon ampunan tanpa lagi mengulang?

Entahlah, terlalu banyak dosa yang tertampung..
Dan iblis selalu menyediakanku beribu wadah..
Entahlah, kenyataan mengajarkanku banyak hal..
Dan iblis semakin sesat menyesatkan jiwaku..

Aku ingin berhenti...
Aku ingin merenung..
Aku ingin berhenti..
Aku memohon ampun...
Hanya saja..
Bukan hatiku yang menginginkan..
Hanya saja..
Sebuah fantasi yang kulawan..

Tak banyak yang aku tahu..
Tapi telah banyak yang aku pahami..
Tak bisa bila hidup harus ku paksa..
Karna paksaan bukan suatu jalan bahagia.



Hanya saja..
Masa lalu yang kembali teringat..
Hanya saja..
Aku telah bisa membaca rangkuman esok hari..

Bukan hanya perih yang ku dapat..
Bahagiapun telah banyak tercipta disini..
Banyak juga keceriaan yang sesaat muncul..
Kesalahpahaman juga turut mengimbangi kisah..

Hanya saja..
Pelangi senja pernah mengingatkanku tentang rasa..
Hanya saja..
Aku yang tak pernah mengerti apa yang di katakannya..

Seperti kerumunan semut pembawa semangat..
Serpihan hatiku dengan perlahan menyatu...
Sempat sesaat tercecer karena sayatan itu..
Namun masih saja tak gontai seakan kuat..

Ku biarkan diriku berdiri dengan nafasku seadanya..
Bersama dengan mimpi..
Bersama dengan harapku..
Bersama dengan semua..
Yang mungkin hanya menjadi sia-sia..

Ku biarkan diriku termenung dengan tatapan yang tertuju..
Bersama gemercik air..
Bersama sang semilir..
Bersama dengan sehelai rasa..
Yang mungkin hanya menjadi lipatan yang akan terbuang...

Aku menjadi buas yang terdiam..
Seperti embun yang perlahan memuai..
Memuai di atas rumput pagi tertutup kabut...
Tak mampu memancarkan kilauan indahnya....

Aku tahu ragaku ikut rapuh..
Layaknya hanya tanah yang mencintai langit..
Tak pernah bisa tersatukan..
Tak pernah mampu bersentuhan..

Namun ku terus saja percaya...
Cinta mampu menggapai langit..
Walau tak seutuhnya tersentuh..
Walau tak pernah ada keabadian..

Aku Percaya...
Kebodohan mengajarkanku banyak hal..
Kesalahan memberikanku jawaban..
Dan aku hidup berawal dari keduanya..

Aku percaya..
Akan diriku sendiri yang lemah..
Akan diriku sendiri yang tersungkur..
Semua akan menjadi berbalik arah..

Aku juga akan selalu percaya..
Mimpiku tak hanya berhenti disini...
Walau sulit untukku menggapainya...
Walau tak mudah untuk menjalani hari..

Kini Ku biarkan diriku percaya..
Perubahan akan menuntunku..
Bersama Sang Penciptanya..
Yang akan selalu memberiku jalan..

Kini kubiarkan diriku tersenyum..
Baru saja aku merasakan kembali nafasku..
Baru saja aku meresapi sebuah kedamaian..
yang membuatku melupakan semua pilu..

Dan aku..
Harus Selalu percaya..
Kesedihan hanya akan ku rasakan sesaat...
Kesedihan hanya akan hilang dalam waktu yang singkat...
Akan Ku ubah menjadi kebahagiaan yang ikhlas..
Karena Aku Percaya..
Pada saatnya nanti,,,
Aq akan merasakan hal yang sama...
Sama seperti sebelumnya...
Dan aq menganggap itu waktu yang terulang...
Terulang dan memaksaku merubahnya menjadi yang tidak sama....
Mungkin sebuah simphony atau bahkan sebuah ironi...


Pada saatnya nanti,,,
Aq akan mengerti tentang perbedaan...
Perbedaan antara ragaku dengan bayanganku...
Dan aq menganggap itu realita yang mengapung...
Mengapung di atas aliran jiwa yang keruh...
Mungkin akan tersangkut atau bahkan melaju mengikuti aliran...


Pada saatnya nanti,,,
Aq akan memahami jalanku yang tak ter arah...
Tak ter arah menuju kemana akhirnya..
Dan aq menganggap itu kebimbangan yang menghimpit...
Menghimpit dengan berjuta beban yang penuh warna...
Mungkin akan menjadi hitam kelam atau bahkan menjadi putih suci..


Dan Pada saatnya nanti,,,
Aq,Diriku,Dan Bayanganku akan berdiskusi...
Tentang arti sebenarnya kebersamaan...
Dimana akan ada pertemuan abadi saat nanti..
Dan akan saling bersatu merasakan,mengerti, juga memahami semua ini,,,
Melangkah untuk merasakan damai..
Melaju untuk mengerti arah...
Menjaga untuk saling memahami arti...
R_angkaian kata ini

N_egeriku,,Bangsaku,Tanah airku,,Sudahkah Bersyukur Hari ini?
Kala Hasrat tak lagi bersyarat
di saat harapan tak selalu di depan
impian takkan dapat di mengerti

ketika perasaan menyapa
menuangkan apa yang ada

iri hati seakan musnah di dalam sanubari
melahirkan jiwa - jiwa yang suci
kebahagian tak selamanya harus memiliki
cukup senyumanmu tuk sirami hati yang mati

ku relakan apa yang aku inginkan
kan ku kenang apa yang telah ku lakukan
dan ku bahagia walau kau tiada menyapa

keikhlasan datang bukan tuk meminta
melainkan berharap agar jiwamu bahagia selamanya

ungkapan hati tak kan pernah mati di dalam hati yang paling dalam. ketika nafsu hasrat kita menginginkan segala apa yang ada di dunia. kita akan kecewa akan apa yan kita inginkan dan harapkan tiba -tiba sirna di telan masa. harapan ini sudah tidak ada di hati hingga rasa kecewa tak akan pernah menghinggapi jiwa.

tidak seharusnya kita berharap sesuatu. tak semestinya kita impikan apa yang kita harapkan. dunia ini semu se semu impian di dalam kalbu. kesuksesan datang dari seberapa besar keikhlasan kita pada sesama. bukan seberapa besar kita dapat untung di dunia.

sahabat sejati bukan benci tuk di tinggal pergi, tetapi bahagia di saat dia bahagia dan sedih di kala sahabat kita di rundung duka.

Love Is ...

Love is the greatest feeling,
Love is like a play,
Love is what I feel for you,
Each and every day,
Love is like a smile,
Love is like a song,
Love is a great emotion,
That keeps us going strong,
I love you with my heart,
My body and my soul,
I love the way I keep loving,
Like a love I can't control,
So remember when your eyes meet mine,
I love you with all my heart,
And I have poured my entire soul into you,
Right from the very start.

- Meghan -


A Special World

A special world for you and me
A special bond one cannot see
It wraps us up in its cocoon
And holds us fiercely in its womb.

Its fingers spread like fine spun gold
Gently nestling us to the fold
Like silken thread it holds us fast
Bonds like this are meant to last.

And though at times a thread may break
A new one forms in its wake
To bind us closer and keep us strong
In a special world, where we belong.

- Sheelagh Lennon -


An Entrapment

My love, I have tried with all my being
to grasp a form comparable to thine own,
but nothing seems worthy;

I know now why Shakespeare could not
compare his love to a summer’s day.
It would be a crime to denounce the beauty
of such a creature as thee,
to simply cast away the precision
God had placed in forging you.

Each facet of your being
whether it physical or spiritual
is an ensnarement
from which there is no release.
But I do not wish release.
I wish to stay entrapped forever.
With you for all eternity.
Our hearts, always as one.

- Anthony Kolos -



What I Love About You

I love the way you look at me,
Your eyes so bright and blue.
I love the way you kiss me,
Your lips so soft and smooth.

I love the way you make me so happy,
And the ways you show you care.
I love the way you say, "I Love You,"
And the way you're always there.

I love the way you touch me,
Always sending chills down my spine.
I love that you are with me,
And glad that you are mine.

- Crystal Jansen -


Never Have I Fallen

Your lips speak soft sweetness
Your touch a cool caress
I am lost in your magic
My heart beats within your chest

I think of you each morning
And dream of you each night
I think of your arms being around me
And cannot express my delight

Never have I fallen
But I am quickly on my way
You hold a heart in your hands
That has never before been given away

- Rex A. Williams

Your Name

I wrote your name in the sky,
but the wind blew it away.
I wrote your name in the sand,
but the waves washed it away.
I wrote your name in my heart,
and forever it will stay.

- Jessica Blade -


I Will Love You Forever

I love you so deeply,
I love you so much,
I love the sound of your voice
And the way that we touch.
I love your warm smile
And your kind, thoughtful way,
The joy that you bring
To my life every day.
I love you today
As I have from the start,
And I'll love you forever
With all of my heart.

- Amanda Nicole Martinez -


A White Rose

The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
O, the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.
But I send you a cream-white rosebud
With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips.

- J B O'Reilly (1844-1890) -



My Love

My love is like an ocean
It goes down so deep
My love is like a rose
Whose beauty you want to keep.

My love is like a river
That will never end
My love is like a dove
With a beautiful message to send.

My love is like a song
That goes on and on forever
My love is like a prisoner
It's to you that I surrender.

- Tasha Shores -


Love


Love is like a lump of gold,
Hard to get, and hard to hold.
Of all the girls I've ever met,
You're the one I can't forget.
I do believe that God above,
Created you for me to love.
He chose you from all the rest,
Because he knew I would love you best.

- Loy Bowman -


Love Me

Love me in the Springtime, when all is green and new,
Love me in the Summer, when the sky is oh so blue,
Love me in the Autumn, when the leaves are turning brown,
Love me in the Winter, when the snow is falling down.

Love me when I'm happy, and even when I'm sad,
Love me when I'm good, or when I'm oh so bad,
Love me when I'm pretty, or if my face is plain,
Love me when I'm feeling good, or when I'm feeling pain.

Love me always darlin', in the rain or shining sun,
Love me always darlin', after all is said and done,
Love me always darlin', until all our life is through,
Love me always darlin', for I'll be lovin' you!

- Amanda Nicole Martinez -


Love Defined

What is love, but an emotion,
So strong and so pure,
That nurtured and shared with another
All tests it will endure?

What is love, but a force
To bring the mighty low,
With the strength to shame the mountains
And halt time’s ceaseless flow?

What is love, but a triumph,
A glorious goal attained,
The union of two souls, two hearts
A bond the angels have ordained?

What is love, but a champion,
To cast the tyrant from his throne,
And raise the flag of truth and peace,
And fear of death o’erthrow?

What is love, but a beacon,
To guide the wayward heart,
A blazing light upon the shoals
That dash cherished dreams apart?

And what is love, but forever,
Eternal and sincere,
A flame that through wax and wane
Will outlive life’s brief years?

So I’ll tell it on the mountaintops,
In all places high and low,
That love for you is my reason to be,
And will never break or bow.

- Matt Dubois -


The Meaning

To love is to share life together
to build special plans just for two
to work side by side
and then smile with pride
as one by one, dreams all come true.

To love is to help and encourage
with smiles and sincere words of praise
to take time to share
to listen and care
in tender, affectionate ways.

To love is to have someone special
one who you can always depend
to be there through the years
sharing laughter and tears
as a partner, a lover, a friend.

To love is to make special memories
of moments you love to recall
of all the good things
that sharing life brings
love is the greatest of all.

I've learned the full meaning
of sharing and caring
and having my dreams all come true;
I've learned the full meaning
of being in love
by being and loving with you.

- Kellie Spehn -


For You Are The One


For you I would climb
The highest mountain peak
Swim the deepest ocean
Your love I do seek.

For you I would cross
The rivers most wide
Walk the hottest desert sand
To have you by my side.

For you are the one
Who makes me whole
You've captured my heart
And touched my soul.

For you are the one
That stepped out of my dreams
Gave me new hope
Showed me what love means.

For you alone
Are my reason to live
For the compassion you show
And the care that you give.

You came into my life
And made me complete
Each time I see you
My heart skips a beat.

For you define beauty
In both body and mind
Your soft, gentle face
More beauty I'll ne'er find.

For you are the one
God sent from above
The angel I needed
For whom I do love.

- Chris Messick -


Pledge of Love

I've made a vow, to no one but you
I pledge my love to forever be true
I'll take care of you and treat you right
I'll lay beside you all through the night
I'll feed you and clothe you and keep you warm
I'll hug you and kiss you and give shelter in the storm
I'll help you and guide you and clear a path
I'll protect you and shield you from an angry man's wrath
I'll listen to your problems help you solve them too
I'll make you a rainbow and let the sun shine through
I'll take your side even if you're wrong
Just to prove our love is strong
I'll plant you flowers and make them grow
They'll be a symbol of love that only we'll know
I'll whisper your name when no one is near
So low that only you can hear
You'll feel my love even if we're apart
You'll know that we are one in heart

- Vesta Sikora -


Unlicensed Love

On a summer's day long, long ago
I fell in love and I'll never know
Just what it was that made me feel
So drawn to her, what the appeal
That set my pulses so to race
When e'er I gazed upon that face
Of one who was scarce but a child
Yet even then could drive me wild
I'll never know the how's and why's
I lost my heart to Hazel Eyes
But when I got that long sought kiss
I knew I'd found my Perfect Miss
My elfin girl from down the lane
And I'll never let her go again

For how could I describe our love?
Romantic love, all hearts and flowers
No way to count the days and hours
Spent in self-indulgent wishes
And thoughts of long awaited kisses
Of sweet embraces, tender sighs
And gazing into love filled eyes
Oh yes, it is that kind of love

Or, is it yet the love of passion
The ecstasy that knows no ration
That shuddering nerve-tingling feeling
The climax with your senses reeling
The wondrous joy when you discover
That sweet surrender to your lover
Oh yes, it's that kind of love too.

Or even yet a love that grows
One that cares and one that knows
That sees beyond the outer skin
Into the person deep within
That loves the spirit and the soul
The inner self that makes the whole
Built on trust and empathy
A love you know was meant to be

The love we share is all these things
A love that has no need of rings
A love you never need to doubt
A love I cannot live without
A love to last us all our days
A love I'll share with you always

- Jim Sharman -


Perfection in my Eyes

All I ever wanted was to be part of your heart,
And for us to be together, to never be apart.

No one else in the world can even compare,
You're perfect and so is this love that we share.

We have so much more than I ever thought we would,
I love you more than I ever thought I could.

I promise to give you all I have to give,
I'll do anything for you as long as I live.

In your eyes I see our present, our future and past,
By the way you look at me I know we will last.

I hope that one day you'll come to realize,
How perfect you are when seen through my eyes.

Because Of You

Because of you
my world is now whole,
Because of you
love lives in my soul.
Because of you
I have laughter in my eyes,
Because of you
I am no longer afraid of good-byes.
You are my pillar
my stone of strength,
With me through all seasons
and great times of length.
My love for you is pure
boundless through space and time,
it grows stronger everyday
with the knowledge that you'll always be mine.
At the altar
I will joyously say 'I do',
for I have it all now
and it's all because of you.

- Written and owned by Amy S. Bedford -


Will you ever?

I don't think you will
ever fully understand
how you've touched my life
and made me who I am.

I don't think you could ever know
just how truly special you are
that even on the darkest nights
you are my brightest star.

I don't think you will ever fully comprehend
how you've made my dreams come true
or how you've opened my heart
to love and the wonders it can do.

You've allowed me to experience
something very hard to find
unconditional love that exists
in my body, soul, and mind.

I don't think you could ever feel
all the love I have to give
and I'm sure you'll never realize
you've been my will to live.

You are an amazing person
and without you I don't know where I'd be.
Having you in my life
completes and fulfills every part of me.

For The First Time

Into my world
of darkness and silence,
you brought light and music.

When you lit my candle,
I began to see and understand
the taste and texture of love.

For the first time.

- John Irvine -


I Asked God

I asked God for a flower, he gave me a bouquet
I asked God for a minute, he gave me a day
I asked God for true love, he gave me that too
I asked for an angel and he gave me you.

- John Raine -


Dreams

I dream of your touch while you are away,
I dream of your smile all through the day,
I remember the day,
You came into my life,
I dream of the day I will be your wife.

I dream of the day I can fall asleep next to you,
I dream of the day I can say I do.
To be your wife,
To be together for life,
Is a dream I have,
Every night.

- Jessica Ann Trimble -


A Wish

I lie on the ground,
and stare into space,
the stars start to move,
into the shape of your face.

I see you there now,
looking down at me,
with that cute little smile,
that I like to see.

You say "close your eyes",
"tell me what you see",
I see only two people,
just you and me.

We're walking the shoreline,
with our feet getting wet,
the horizon turns pink,
as the sun starts to set.

We make love through the night,
on that white sandy shore,
then I hold you while thinking,
I could want nothing more.

Oh I wish I could be,
in that one special place,
as I lie on the ground,
and I stare into space...

A Love For All Time

Breathless kisses
Burning touches
Soft-spoken words of love
Urgently spoken words of passion.
A man and a woman
One complete love
Since time began
Predestined to be as one.
We've been together before
In other lifetimes
We've fought dragons
And have been torn from each others arms
Yet our love prevailed.
We've walked on this earth many times together
Perhaps for a moment
Perhaps for years
But our heart is one heart
And we were meant to be.
So when our time on earth
Once again comes to a close
Have no worries my dear
For we will find each other again
And again
And again.
For our love is ageless
Eternal
A love for all time.

- Dawn Choike -


My Sweetheart

So often when I am embracing you,
It seems that you exist in this world
only because of me and I exist because of you.

It's not easy to wander in this world
and not lose one's way,
but the greatest happiness of all
is in giving joy to one's beloved.

And if the king can have his throne,
and if the bird can have his Spring nest,
and God can have his heaven,
then I, my sweetheart, I can have you!

seperti kemarin, kaki ini melangkah

mengikuti setiap jejak yang terlihat

walau kutahu apa arti semua ini

aku merasa, siapa yang bodoh dan dibodohi?

mungkin ini kehidupan

yang sering kuungkapkan

dalam bait-bait puisiku yang kusam

yang jarang tersentuh jari-jari indah

namun, kini pasti

bahwa aku benar dan tidak membual

aku terus berusaha

menyalin semua langkahku

yang berserakan dalam hati kotor

namun, kadang aku masih takut

akankah diriku terhempas lembut?

lalu kuingat pesan sahabat

yang rindu akan ketenangan

“jalanilah hidupmu dengan tenang

dengan keyakinan dirimu yang mantap

dan berharap Dia akan mengabulkan

tapi, berusahalah sekuat jiwamu

jangan pernah ragu ‘tuk melangkah”

aku pun bertambah yakin

jiwa dan ragaku tak bisa dibodohi

dan aku merasa…

semua ini salah hati yang rusak

di setiap jiwa manusia yang tak tahu diri
