YOU SAID (KATA MU) / Poem by Siti Ruqaiyah HASHIM

Poem by Siti Ruqaiyah HASHIM

 

YOU SAID

You said
don’t go back
don’t go back
don’t go back
to miseries

You said
come to me
as what you are
together we seek for justice
on their arrogance

You said
go to the sea, my love
till happiness appears

You said
we are
the moon that fallen……but reunited

I said
thank you for loving me
but loving you
at times are scary
to dream
but I am already here

and not going anywhere

Pristina, Kosovo
Summer 2019.

 

KATA MU

Kata mu
jangan kembali
jangan kembali
jangan kembali
kepada kedukaan

Kata mu
datanglah kepada ku
seadanya
bersama kita mencari keadilan

atas kebiadapan mereka

Kata mu
pergilah ke laut, cinta ku
hingga bahagia menjelma

Kata mu
kitalah
rembulan yang gugur……….tapi bersatu

Kata ku

terima kasih kerana mencintai ku
tapi mencintai mu
ada kalanya amat menakutkan
untuk bermimpi
tapi aku sudah di sini
dan tak mau ke mana lagi

Pristina, Kosovo
Musim panas 2019.
