Trouvaille



She sits beside me. Not literally, a hand brake and gear transmission are between us. I know I supposed to put all my attention on the street but I can’t stop myself to steal a glance on her.

Tapi mayamu tetaplah sebuah senang
Lalu sangkalmu adalah sebuah tenang

Kejoraku yang kini begitu benderang,
Meski kau buat hatiku berperang
Namun janganlah menjadikannya berang
Hingga menyisakan linang yang terkenang
