sampai bila-bila


jangan nangis sayang
babah kat sini
shh shh shh

meh babah dukung meh
meh babah peluk meh

arissa nak berdiri ye
meh babah pegang tangan meh
babah akan pegang tangan arissa
sampai arissa pandai jalan sendiri

jangan nangis sayang
shh shh shh
babah sayang arissa

cuma jangan ditanya
camane babah sayang arissa
nanti bila dah besar
arissa dah ada anak
arissa akan tahu sendiri

nanti bila dah besar
mungkin arissa tak ingat semua ni

tapi babah tetap ingat
arissa babah yang manja ni
sampai bila-bila

ya Allah,
lindungi hidupnya, berkati umurnya
limpahi jalannya dengan nur-Mu

ali sallih & hamidah johari


in as much as i love my daughter, i dare not to wonder how much my parents love me. Allah, bestowe upon them your unimaginary jannah. muhammad, bless them with your syafa'at.

Wahai tuhan, kasihilah ibubapa kami
sepertimana mereka mengasihi kami
ketika kecilnya kami

kaulah laguku
kau irama terindah
tak lagi kudengari

7 months and noisier

owh, i almost forgot. lets talk about my jewel, arissa. she's almost 8 months old now. and if there is anyone outside there telling you that time flies without us realizing, well.. just believe that guy. its true [haha]. i am truly amazed how 'big' she is now. and yes, time does flies - fastly - very very fastly.

arissa dah pandai ape? come, let me tell you, every single thing okay.

'bergelak ketawa' [oh, sudah semestinya. pantang ada yang menegur.]
'menjerit sesuka hati' [pastinya arissa dah tau, dia hanya perlu menjerit, dan segalanya dimakbulkan]
'berdiri' [yep, tapi dengan kedua tangannya dipegang oleh mereka yang lebih dewasa]
'duduk' [ha, yang ni memang dia pandai. dan tidak perlu dipegang sesiapa]
'pegang botol susu sendiri' [erm, masih belum .. masih belum ..]

those words best left unspoken


as the last person walks away from my tomb... i recounts ::

the dust is now my bed, embracing and covering
the sand surrounds and engulfing from all directions
and the tomb recounts the story of the darkness of the calamity
and the light has destined that my pleasure is in meeting Allah

where is the kindness of kin?
where are the scores of friends?
where is the bliss of money?
where are the glory of fame and compliments?

the beloved bade farewell to his love and cried my elegy
the tears flow dried out after crying
the vast universe shrank narrowing my space
and the tomb becomes both my ground and sky

fear overwhelms my estrangement
and sadness is my ailment
praying for steadfastness which i swear - is my remedy
sincerely supplicating to the Lord: You are my hope
hoping for heaven - where my bliss shall be attained

this is my end: and the dust is my bed

will there ever be?


because we never know
what will happen tomorrow
we tend not to tolerate with arguments
we tend not to hear opinions
we tend not to show love

appreciate our today
be more forgiving
be more accepting
be more tolerate
be more compassionate

because we never know
will there ever be tomorrow

in memory of: days we do not wish to remember

its february. although the new mentri besar had sworned in and the new excos are due on tuesday, this will surely be remembered for a long time. there has been too much talks on what is right and what is wrong, what ought to be done and what ought not to be done. am i going to care? do i look like i care?
his royal highness learned Sultan cited Section 16 (6) of Undang-undang Tubuh Kerajaan Perak to refuse the ruling party from dissolving the State Legislative Assembly and inflicting further wounds. his royal highness learned Sultan further cited Section 18 (2) of Undang-undang Tubuh Kerajaan Perak to exercise his learned discretion in refusing so.
hence, what went wrong in between? a lack of understanding? a misundertanding? or a grey area where none has been promulgated to cover the same?
as we look up to the sky with broken hearts, we remember these days, as days we do not wish to remember.
