I Wish I Could Stop Dreams

 
I wish I could stop dreams,
Pull them out,
Shape them in front of me.
If this feat I could accomplish,
You would be here,
Instead of being there.
Every day and night,
I feel your presence.
You may not be near to touch,
But you are in my mind and heart.
You meet my needs so silently,
I am not alone because of you.
When I am working, You are with me.
When I am playing, You are with me.
When I am alone, You are with me.
Even though we may be far apart,
You are always with me.
We may have been far apart,
But the ties between us,
Have gotten closer.
The memory of the times we have spent together,
Shall last forever.

 

Once In A Lifetime

 
Once in a life time, I met someone charming,
Who seems to understand me, In a way no one else could.

Once in a lifetime, I got someone so true,
Who stands together with me, In good and bad times always.

Once in a lifetime, I found someone so loving,
Who loves me for who I am, I know because I found you.

 

Gone Were The Days

 
As I sit under a tree amidst a cool lazy evening breeze,
I opened up my diary and begin to read back it's contents,
Six months has flown past at a furious pace,
And I start to recall all the days that has gone away.

Gone were the days when you would eagerly await my arrival,
And rushed to embrace me full of passion and kisses.
Gone were the days when you would urged us to be alone,
And spent time with each other until reluctantly we had to part.

Gone were the days when you would proclaim your love for me,
At every junction and interruption of our flow of talk.
Gone were the days when you would quickly finish up your house chores,
And be ready waiting for me to come and meet you.

Gone were the days when you have to go off mid-way to run some errands,
And rush back in double-quick time knowing I will still be waiting for you.
Gone were the days when you would send me cards and greetings,
To reinforce your proclaimation of love for me.

Gone were the days when you would be open and truthful with me,
And never hold back and distrust me for a single bit.
Gone were the days when you say I am the only one for you,
For now you have a dozen charming suitors lining up for you to choose.

With a sigh I closed my diary and lie down on the grass,
Wiping away a tear that suddenly formed and flowed down my cheek,
I looked up at the forming clouds being blown along by a breeze,
And wonders if this breeze has also blown away the days of my happiness.

But I know no matter how much this breeze blows away,
Whatever I promised you will never be blown away,
I will always be by your side even when your feelings for me has changed,
For my love for you will be the same yesterday, today and forever.

My love for you will withstand the test of time,
And will never be part of the days gone by.
Ahhhh.....but I still long for those days gone by.

 

I'm Here For You, Always

 
In times of trouble and confusion,
When darkness engulfs your mind,
Everything seems to fall apart,
And all things seem to fail,
Remember sweetheart, you're not alone, I'm here for you, always.

In silence you travel along the lonely pathway,
Of solitude, all alone in a reclusive world,
With no one to talk to,
And share your pain and sorrow,
Remember darling, you're not alone, I'm here for you, always.

Rain pours down the window panes,
Likewise tears roll down, drenching your face,
When you feel you can no longer take it,
And there isn't anyone to turn to,
Remember beloved, you're not alone, I'm here for you, always.

 

Beloved

 
Beloved...
In your face, I see the sincerity,
From your pure heart,
I got the conditional love,
That makes me feel grateful,
For your appearance in my life.

Beloved...
Whenever we may find ourselves,
Together or apart,
The spirit of the love,
That we have with each other,
Is forever in my heart.

Beloved...
You're the most valuable gift,
That God has given to me,
You are the one who,
I can call my true love.

 

In My Life (by John Lennon)

 
There are places I'll remember all my life,
Though some have changed,
Some forever not for better,
Some have gone and some remain.

All these places had their moments,
With lovers and friends I still can recall,
Some are dead and some are living,

In my life I've loved them all.

But of all these friends and lovers,
There is no one compares with you,
And these memories lose their meaning,
When I think of love as something new.

Though I know I'll never lose affection,
For people and things that went before,
I know I'll often stop and think about them,
In my life I love you more.

 

Aku Ingin (I Want)(by Sapardi Djoko Damono)

 
Aku ingin mencintaimu dengan sederhana,
dengan kata yang tak sempat diucapkan,
kayu kepada api yang menjadikannya abu.

Aku ingin mencintaimu dengan sederhana,
dengan isyarat yang tak sempat disampaikan awan,
kepada hujan yang menjadikannya tiada.

(I want to love you in a simple way,
in words never spoken,
by timber to the flame, who turns it to embers.

I want to love you in a simple way,
in gestures never passed,
by a cloud to a rain, who alters it to the naught.)
