TRIBUTE TO Vesna SPANIC

Sleep well, my beautiful, soulful friend. Its been a long journey. Thank you for the long chat to keep me company. Because you were scared I’ll be lonely. And its as if as you knew it…..

 

POEMS

If one day
I will not be here,
do not look for me,
do not wander
around the streets,
look for me in my poems,
for you
they have created

embrace them,
open their soul to the Sun

let them smile to you
with the seas,
let them glow to you
with the stars.

 

PUISI

Jika satu hari
aku tiada lagi di sini
jangan cari diri ku
jangan merayau,
merata jalan,
carilah aku dalam puisi ku
kerana kepada engkaulah
ianya dicipta

Terimalah ia
bukakan jiwa mereka kepada mentari

Biarkan ianya tersenyum kepada mu
dengan lautan
biarkan ia bercahaya kepada mu
dengan bintang-bintang.

 

SUNNY EYES

Some loves
can’t be destroyed
neither by time
nor by reason
nor they can be mixed
with the others
cause they were always
so true
and so deep
that they can only
remain such painful,
more painful
than the days
that wander
through the wilderness
louder than the cry
that bursts
in the middle of nowhere
at the moment
when Sunny eyes
catch the sight
of the darkness alone

at the moment
when sunny eyes
stay without Poetry.

 

MATA YANG BERSINAR

Ada cinta
yang tak boleh di musnah
samada oleh masa
atau oleh sebab
dan mereka tak bercampur-aduk
dengan yang lain
kerana ia selalunya
sejati
dan mendalam
dan ianya terus
kekal melukakan
lebih melukakan
dari hari-hari
ketika engkau merayau
tanpa tujuan
lebih kuat bunyinya
dari jeritan
yang memecah
entah dari mana-mana
ketika
mata yang bersinar
menangkap penglihatan
kegelapan semata-mata

ketika inilah
waktu masa bersinar
kekal tanpa Puisi.
