memories

the good old days 🙂

the man who stood by with his gift of the written words to help lighten up a stranger-cum-wifey when she was almost giving up with life.

life did not treat me good post-graduate. i was happy when most of my friends managed to nail stable and high-flying jobs, but i was frustrated at myself at the same time. The man helped me to cool down and reminded me that good things are catered to those who wait.

And I managed to go on.

He is a man of few words. He speaks to me through written words and he gets messages across through beautifully-written poems. Sometimes I have tough time digesting the fact that sometimes one does not need to articulate their feelings verbally, when there’s a pen and stacks of papers.

I am posting this so that when the day comes that I don’t seem to remember anything remotely related to what made me fell hard for my husband at the first place, I’d remember growing immersed in his written words.

and how convinced we were.

love you hubs, eventhough you kept making me eating veggies


Telunjukmu lurus mengaku dia satu-satunya…
Saat dia ingin tiupkan pelengkap jasadmu itu, engkau pernah bersumpah…
Hari ini berkolan sudah engkau tunaikan…
Di samping sisi yang diselit dengan alpamu, semoga engkau menginsafinya…
Itu lumrah manusia punya jiwa yang boleh putih boleh kotor…
Itu akal mengiring iman atau nafsu kerajaan hati, sama ada satu… atau terkadang bergilir antaranya…

Oleh itu insan…
Jangan kau tangisi hidupmu ini…
Malah jangan kau soalkan itu ini jalan apa kau harungi…
Sedang teman lain bersorak terkinja melambung-lambung yang ada atas tangan mereka…
Kerana engkau insan kudus, yang punya jiwa yang suci…
Jangan kau kesalkan…
Aku di sini pasti telapak kerdilmu itu akan menatang suatu cahaya yang anugerah…
Yang hanya perlu dirimu itu insan…
Syukurlah…
Bersabarlah…
Pinta mu akan dia makbul…
Tidak perlu ganding-gandingan…
Tidak perlu banding-bandingan…
Ibarat yang jadi sebut-sebutanmu… Masamu akan tiba nanti…

Wajah manismu pasti bergemerlapan…
Hati putihmu pasti tangani satu-satu… buruan yang disusup…
Engkau dorong tubuh maju sekalian bawaan-bawaannya…
Diizinkanlah mudah-mudahan

Sabar sayang sabarlah…
Aku di sini pasti melihatmu insan kudus oh hamba insani…
Dirimu pasti dirahmati…
Pasti-pasti hatimu akan gembira…
Sabarlah dengan rasa yang penuh bersyukur ya Habibi…
Aku sentiasa mengiringi…
