My First English Poem

10 Apr

This, I Promise

(especially for my beloved Ulfa)


I can’t promise you a rose garden

For its way out of my tiny might

The wildest of dreams

For I want just to be true

Till the day I’d come

With a heart full of blossoms

This, I promise…


I can’t promise you a Taj Mahal’s wedding

For I don’t even dare to dream

Knowing I would fail you

For not being me

And not being real

Dreaming the wildest of dreams

O yes, only my true love.

This, I promise…


I can’t promise you showering gifts

The glitters of a woman needs

Those faraway beaches

Or Nusa Dua sunsets

For I have nothing more to give

Than my trusting you

And smiles on my face.

This, I promise…


This, my love, I promise:

The sweetest smile you’ll ever had

A shoulder for you to cry-on

An ear that would always ready to listen

Eyes that look straight into yours

Comforting words when you’re angry

And children who would be a somebody…

This, I promised…

    Teruntuk Sheikh Mansor

    Mengunjungi taman karyamu
    Kusaksikan bunga bahasa mekar penuh pesona

    Membaca lukisan hatimu
    Yang kau sisipkan dalam kata
    Aku tergoda
    Kutinggalkan jejakmu
    Dalam puisi tamasyaku

    Al-Amien, 29 April 2010
