One Hundred Sixty

It's very hard to find a quality time to spend together these days. He has been busy... we both are very busy and even when eating or before sleeping we only managed to chat about important stuff, which mostly are pertaining to work.

I miss going on a date, where we hold hands and being lovey dovey is all we do. The last time we actually did nothing but sat around and stared at the ocean was on new year, which is like 3 months ago.

I miss him dearly though I still wake up next to him on daily basis. Maybe I miss the cheeky part of him. Maybe I just miss being worry-free and just enjoy his companionship because I love being with him.

One Hundred Fifty Nine

I have always been the teaching one. Bit of a scribbler too as I remember better when I write. Was never good at listening.

One Hundred Fifty Eight

Lebih separuh bulan pertama tahun ini sudah berlalu. Have I progressed? I'm not sure. But has the team? Definitely.

We're going to run as fast as we could. So we could work on the dreams that were supposed to materialise years ago.

We learnt our lesson, and it's time to speed up.

One Hundred Fifty Six

We fought a lot at the beginning of the married life. Even over the pettiest thing. Like throwing rubbish. And they weren't small fights where one of us would sulk and the other would console. No. We fought hard.

I still remember when the in laws had to intervene because we went overboard. The father-in-law told me to remain in silence when the spouse is raging. Even if we know for sure we're on the right side. He later added, something straightforward but left an impact in me, "You should be grateful you have the luxury to fight over these matters. Imagine your brothers and sisters whose countries are in war; all they could afford to think of is on how to survive on daily basis. So be grateful. Stop fighting over things like this."

I snapped. It has never crossed my mind that fighting with your loved ones is also a luxury not everyone has. Now I know how to appreciate the love we have for each other better.

One Hundred Fifty Five

Hari Kepergian

 Sekujur tubuh kaku
Berpuluh wajah terpaku
Berkongsi rasa syahdu
Dalam acara penuh sendu

 Aku memerhati setiap tamu
Wajah-wajah yang membisu
Menganggar apa yang membelengu
Dalam benak beku

Kuala Lumpur

I think I wrote this 5 years ago describing what I observed & felt during a close friend cum neighbour's funeral
