Tell her

Tell her

you miss the melody of her name
after all this while is she still the same
the girl who struck out on her own
venturing into the world unknown?

is she the same, you said you'd care for
'til end of time, forevermore
you'll cherish her, because you do
for eternity, you love her too?

you found her again, that's what you said
searched for years, you stayed to wait
for her to magically re-appear
into your life, to have her near

you loved, and missed her when she went
you pined for her, upon no end
but when she's here in flesh and soul
are you brave enough to meet and hold?

her hands, so soft, you remember well
but not to her, you never did tell
what was in your heart that time, before
she went away to the land of yore

is she still the one that you desired
the one whom you had so required
as partner to your beating heart
until the day that you depart?

if yes then tell her how you feel
however much you love her still
before she disappears again
and you would have loved her all in vain

another chance may not be present
to have a go at a slice of heaven
to tell her truly how much you care
and why for her, you'll always be there

tell her do, give her the news
just let her know, what's there to lose?
after all these years, you never told her
for all you know, she might just remember

how much to her your presence meant
when spending time together then
sharing laughter and the tears
amongst the sadness, the hopes, the fears

the feelings that she had for you
may have been what you felt then too
but since you never said a word
so off she went, free as a bird

so tell her now, while she is here
how much you care, and hold her dear
you never know what she will say
her answer might just brighten your day

Of Emotions and Elements


Wednesday Apr 13 2011 at 20:31 via iPhone ·


I've been given a dare
By a poet extraordinaire
Oh dear, what am I to do?
I have to deliver but I have no clue!

I told him, I'm sorry sir
I'm down with a raging fever
He said oh take care, but by 3pm, I hope
I'm sure you can write while you're high on dope :-)

Some words that he had given me
Must be used appropriately
I'm to utilise Halilintar and Hujan
Petir, Kilat, Badai and Taufan

Also there's Gerimis and Suram
Not forgetting Guruh and Kelam
Now, the real challenge has not been met
You haven't seen the rest of it yet!

Sinar, Terang, Cerah, Suria
Mentari, Gemerlapan, Kemilau
and Cahaya
Words portraying the different elements
Which can be used to describe emotions

The highs and lows, feelings of a person
Turmoil, passion, elation and frustration
So where do I start then, I ask you
When my prose is terrible in Bahasa Melayu?

Oh yes one more word, he tells me
For good measure, throw in Pelangi
I'm scratching my head more than enough
My kids are asking, Mama you have dandruff?

A disciplined writer, I never can be
I salute Pendita Rahim, who challenged me
The next time he says 'I dare you!'
I'll just go menyorok behind a batu...

Somehow I find rhyming to be simpler. I seem to dissolve into puisi, sajak, pantun, poems so much more these days. Signs of aging? Mellowing down?

Thoughts and feelings are much more spontaneous in this form somehow for me lately. Oh and cutting-n-pasting from FB is a big help hehehe

No matter how sometimes I feel that words fail me, they are the ones to the rescue all the time ! Bravo to the written words!

Smile people, and don't forget to breaaaaatttthhheeee :-)

You are there with me no matter what,
during anxiety, fears,
excitement, my tears.
Constantly by my side
when I'm happy, gullible, sad,
idiotic and neurotically mad.
I love you always and forever...

buat Ardhiya

Emma Aman Shah on Friday, 01 April 2011 at 19:48

Belum lagi tamatnya lagu
Masih punya rangkap hidupmu
Yang belum habis dinyanyi kamu

Selesai sudah rangkap yang lalu
Mulakan lagi dengan yang baru
Biar lagunya tambah merdu

Walau melodinya mungkin berubah
Tambah irama tambahnya indah
Agar seri menjadi murni
Yang lalu itu biarkan pergi
Fasa hidup jangan sesali
Indahnya ada, masih berseni

Nyanyikan terus lagumu, Ardhiya
Selagi Allah memberi daya
Teruskan lagumu kearah Ia
Akan aku iringkan du'a
Agar hidupmu diulit bahagia

Today's Prayer Times
