This Friendship


I am speechless
Not out of arrogance
You know I am alone
Not out of hate
You know I laugh
Not out of malice

In my dreams I dance
In my mind I sing
In my silence I perceive

In my leaving I search for myself
In my return I gain meaning
Your existence, is the pillar of my spirit

The guide of my journey
The balance of meaning
The giver of light

Thank you for accepting me as I am
Because you are my friend

Translated from the Malay version:

Persahabatan Ini

Kau tahu aku berdiam
Bukan kerana aku sombong
Kau tahu aku menyendiri
Bukan kerana aku benci
Kau tahu aku ketawa
Bukan kerana aku menghina

Dalam khayal aku menari
Dalam fikir aku menyanyi
Dalam senyap aku perhati

Perginya aku mencari diri
Kembalinya aku mendapatkan erti
Adanya kau tunggak semangat

Penuntun perjalanan
Pengimbang maksud
Pemberi Cahaya

Terimakasih menerima aku seadanya
Kerana kau sahabatku.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
