:: Mutiara Kata Pembuka Hati ::



(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 your 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

Ada yang belum pulang petang ini...

Tito Yulianto

Ada yang belum pulang petang ini
Namun bukan anak mimpi tadi siang

Sebentar lagi maghrib
Siapa yang akan menemani ku mendengarkan adzan?
Menekan saklar-saklar lampu yang terlalu banyak itu?
Menyambut malam hari yang berwibawa itu?

Ada yang belum pulang petang ini
Namun terpaksa tak aku pedulikan

Ada yang belum pulang petang ini
Lalu begitu saja semuanya berjalan

Namun bukan mimpi nanti malam
