The World Is Too Much With Us

The world is too much with us: late and soon,
Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers:
Little we see in nature that is ours;
We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!
The sea that bares her bosom to the moon:
The winds that will be howling at all hours,
And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers;
For this, for every thing, we are out of tune;
It moves us not. – Great God! I’d rather be
A pagan suckled in a creed outworn;
So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,
Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;
Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea;
Or hear old Triton blow his wreathed horn.

William Wordsworth (1770-1850)

The Square Root Three

I fear that I will always be
A lonely number like root three
A three is all that’s good and right
Why must my three keep out of sight
Beneath a vicious square-root sign?
I wish instead I were a nine
For nine could thwart this evil trick
With just some quick arithmetic
I know I’ll never see the sun
As 1.7321
Such is my reality
A sad irrationality

When, hark, just what is this I see?
Another square root of a three
Has quietly come waltzing by
Together now we multiply
To form a number we prefer
Rejoicing as an integer
We break free from our mortal bonds
And with a wave of magic wands
Our square-root signs become unglued
And love for me has been renewed

David Feinberg

When I Think of You

I remember all the good times
The laughter, the cries, the sorrow, and the smiles
I remember how it used to be
When I was there for you and you were there for me
I miss the times we once had
When life was good and life was bad
But through all the years
You’ve stood by me when times were tough
You were there to give your help and love
And now today I clearly see
I need you and you need me

Tidurku

Kembali, sunyi subuh membisu
Membawa derap langkah waktu
Jelas kian terdengar berpacu
Menggema ikuti nyanyian jantungku

Aargh! Aku terbangun lagi…
Saat rembulan masih tinggi
Sedang lelap enggan kembali
Hanya dapat menunggu mentari

Baru seminggu hidupku disana
Dimana waktu bertambah dua
Sungguh tak pernah kuduga
Telah cukup membuatku biasa

Kini waktu tiada bertambah
Namun jam tidurku berubah
Genap empat malam sudah
Bergelut dengan rasa lelah

Cinta Yang Berlalu

Telah pupus cintanya
oleh bisu yang kau dengungkan
Telah mati jiwanya
bersama cinta yang kau kuburkan

Kini hanya bangkai kenangan
berserakan di taman hatinya
Hanya cekam kegelapan
di tengah rindu yang menghantuinya

Dan dalam sunyi keheningan,
ia mengukir namamu di pusara hatinya
sebelum bangun dan berlalu kemudian
dengan senyuman di wajahnya

Saat Kau Tak Di Sisiku

Kini langit tak sebiru dahulu
Awan-awan semakin kelabu
Hilang paduan putih dan biru
Menghias angkasa berwarna sendu

Remang senja menelan bayangan
Mentari terbenam digiring rembulan
Hilang cahaya merintis kegelapan
Sebab bintang bersinar enggan

Inilah fenomena pengiring rindu
Dunia berduka memendam pilu
Bersama rintik hujan lantunkan lagu
Saat kau tak di sisiku

I Love You

It’s not a weight you must carry around.
It’s not a box that holds you in.
It’s not a standard you have to bear.
It’s not a sacrifice I make.
It’s not a pedestal you are frozen upon.
It’s not an expectation of perfection.
It’s not my life’s whole purpose (or your’s).
It’s not to make you change.
It’s not even to make you love me.
I love you.
It’s as pure and simple as that.
