[repost] lighthouse

it is

not a candle

nor a firecracker

neither the rocket of Challenger

.

it is

a lighthouse

shining through the dark

show you the way to get back

Terimakasih Nak,

Sesungguhnya kamu lah yang mengajarkan kami berbicara,

bukan kami yang mengajarkanmu mengeja.

Terimakasih Nak,

Untuk kasih sayang yang kamu berikan,

Aku ingin dibacakan puisi ini di hari pernikahan

seperti aku membacakannya di hari kelahiranmu.

On Children

by Kahlil Gibran

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

You are the bows from which your children
as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
and He bends you with His might
that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let our bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies,
so He loves also the bow that is stable.

Terimakasih banyak Nak.

Semoga kamu juga diberikan kesempatan untuk menangis bahagia.
