BARA KASIH

Ratri Kumudawati 1943 (Indonesia)



Telah kaunyalakan bara api kasih abadi
Yang menghangati inti jati diri,
Yang memacu degup jantung dan nadi,
Yang menyala di setiap akarnya.

Kau cairkan kerinduan yang membeku
Dalam kemesraan rengkuhan dekapanmu.
Dengan bisikan suara selembut sutera
Menenteramkan riak-riak gejolak jiwa.

Kau bangkitkan semangat untuk menatap
Hari-hari depan dengan sikap mantap
Secercah harapan cerah yang indah
Mengiringi setiap ayunan langkah.

Di persimpangan kita harus berpisah.
Kisah dan kenangan erat terjalin,
Mengisi mimpi di malam yang resah,
Dalam linangan air matamu aku bercermin.
