by Tuan Faridah Syed Abdullah

Musim bunga ini telah tiba
ke hujungnya. Seri alam pun
Memudar bersama keringnya
kelopak-kelopak segar
alam ini bakal sepi lagi
seperti aku yang bakal kau tinggalkan
siangpun akan kabur lagi mencari
pasti – musim manakah Tuhan akan mempertemukan
kita kembali?
Dalam sepi dan kabur akhir musim
puisi ini kutulis. Bersamaan itu
wajahmu memenuhi ruang ingatanku
Ya, puisi ini kutulis
Kutulis untukmu yang jauh
dengan payah
kerana
seperti musim bunga yang bakal berakhir ini
kita juga bakal jadi dewasa
bersama hukum alam itu.

(Translation)

POEM AT THE END OF SPRING

This spring has come to
its end. The beauty of the land now
fades with the drying of
fresh petals
The world is going to be lonely once again
just like me whom you’re about to leave
The days pass in a blur looking for
certainty – which season will God bring us
together again?
In the loneliness and bleary at the end of the season
I wrote this. Simultaneously
your face fills up my memory
Yes, I wrote this
I wrote this for you who are far away
with much difficulty
Because
Like this spring that is about to end
We, too, will have to grow up and move on
Just like that law of nature.

-END-
