When I woke up this morning, I realize life continues then.



When I woke up this morning

I realize life continues then

Looked straight ahead

With my head upright


In every breath

I realize life is too precious

Just for a laugh

Or just close my eyes


Where his ideas ever burned

Must be subject to running time

What a mystery of self

It is incomprehensible to the soul


Where do I request it?

As my body gets older

My bones are getting fragile

And the sun rose high

Cepat seperti angin // Tekun seperti hujan // Bergairah seperti api // Diam seperti gunung // Misterius seperti laut // Kejam seperti badai // Anggun seperti ngarai // Hening seperti hutan // Dalam seperti lembah // Lembut seperti awan // Tangguh seperti karang // Sederhana seperti debu // Menyelimuti seperti udara // Hangat seperti matahari // Luas seperti angkasa // Berserakan seperti debu //
