The Heart of the Matter: Forgiveness

What are these voices
outside love's open door?
Make us throw off our contentment
and beg for something more.

I'm learning to live without you now
but I miss you sometimes.
The more I know,
the less I understand.
All the things I thought I knew,
I'm learning again.

I've been tryin' to get down
to the heart of the matter.
But my will gets weak
and my thoughts seem to scatter.
But I think it's about
forgiveness, forgiveness.
Even if, even if
you don't love me anymore...

... The Heart of the Matter, Don Henley

Fairy tales are more than true;
not because they tell us that dragons exist,
but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.

To Strive, To Seek, To Find, And Not To Yield

Come, my friends,
'Tis not too late to seek a newer world.
Push off, and sitting well in order smite
The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds
To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars, until I die.
It may be that the gulfs will wash us down;
It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles,
And see the great Achilles, whom we knew.
Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho'
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

... Ulysses, Alfred Tennyson, 1833

Sedetik Lebih

Setiap nafas yang dihembus
Setiap degupan jantung
Aku selalu memikirkanmu

Dalam sedar dibuai angan
Dalam tidur dan khayalan
Aku selalu memikirkanmu

Ternyata ku perlukan cinta dari dirimu sayang
Barulah terasa ku bernyawa

Kasihku ku amat mencintai kamu
Kerana kau beri erti hidup
Ku kan terus mencinta sedetik lebih selepas selamanya

... Sedetik Lebih, Anuar Zain

Ku harungi
Hari demi hari
Bersama wajah tak mungkin akan kembali
Tapi hati masih tak terima
Ditinggalkan sengsara

Keraguan ini bukanlah padamu
Perasaan hati masih rindu
Kekalutan ini hanyalah untukku
Tercari-cari bayangan mu
Tak sanggup aku kehilangan

... Perpisahan, Anuar Zain
