And Thus It Shall Remain

by Setiawati Lubis
RealAudio Reading by the Poet
We walk along the sands on diff'rent shores
Not realizing that we're far apart,
The sun shines on my face, the moon on yours,
Delighting in the music of the heart.
We gaze upon horizons far and wide
To seek familiar moments that we shared;
Yet once again we must to fate abide,
From pain and sorrow we shall not be spared.
The breezes plant your kisses on my face
And rustling leaves your whispered lovewords lend;
So, too, the stars hold you in my embrace,
For none on earth could my love apprehend.
     The memories, though sweet, can't ease our pain
     For we were one and thus we shall remain.
