Nur Meiyati


Can a Man Be Sad


Can a man be sad
I asked you
In one of our misery days
The days among the three months left
Before your departure time, back to your country

Of course
I can be sad
Like how I feel now
I start to feel settled in this place
I love your country
And now I will have to leave this place
And leave you
But we will find a way

I was looking closely at your eyes
Trying to digest your words
So difficult to understand
I had always thought before, that only women could be sad
Like how I felt
Counting the days
And I named the days before your leaving
As the days of misery

    Up to my river I am.
    Heavy with you I am.
    Shed a tear,
    you I have lost.
    Up to your neck I am.....iip (Report) Reply
