When You Loved by a Woman 3

And a woman spoke, saying,”Tell us of Pain.”

And he said : Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding. Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain.

And could you keep your heart in wonder at the daily miracles of your life, your pain would not seem less wondrous than your joy;

And you would accept the seasons of your heart, even as you have always accepted the seasons that pass over your fields.

And you would watch with serenity through the winters of your grief. Much of your pain is self-chosen. It is bitter potion by which physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquillity : For his hand, though heavy and hard, is guided by the tender hand of the Unseen, and the cup he brings, though it burn your lips, has been fashioned of the clay which the Potter has moistened with His own sacred tears.

Dan seorang perempuan bertanya,”katakan kepada kami rasa sakit.”

Kemudian ia mengatakan : rasa sakitmu ialah menyeruak keluar dari tabir yang menutup pengertianmu. Bahkan biji buah pun membelah dirinya, itu hati mungkin akan berhadapan dengan matahari, jadi engkau tahu rasa sakit.

Dan engkau bisa saja menaruh harapan kepada mukjizat dalam hidupmu, rasa sakitmu takkan pernah lebih sedikit dari rasa bahagiamu.

Dan kamu akan menyaksikan setiap musim yang hadir dari hatimu, bahkan engkau akan selalu menerima setiap musim yang berlalu di kebun kehidupanmu.

Dan engkau akan menyaksikan dengan kesungguhan dari musim semi nestapamu. Banyak dari rasa sakitmu adalah pilihanmu sendiri. Inilah pelipur lara pahit terjadi dalam dirimu yang menyembuhkan dari dalam dirimu sendiri. Oleh karena itu percayalah kepada kemampuan dirimu untuk sembuh, dan minumlah pelipur laranya dalam kesunyian dan kekhusukan. Dari tangannya, meskipun berat dan keras, di pandu oleh tangan lembut dari Sang Khalik, dan cangkir yang dibawa olehnya, meskipun panas bagi bibirmu, telah diindahkan dari tanah liat menjadi cawan yang mengkilap dari air mata suciNya.

When You Loved by a Woman 2

From a sensitive woman’s heart springs the happiness of mankind, and from the kindness of her noble spirit comes mankind’s affection.

Dari kelembutan hati seorang perempuan bersemilah kebahagiaan umat manusia, dan dari kebaikan yang berasal dari keteguhan jiwanya hadirlah kepekaan umat manusia.

Songs of the Rain

I am dotted silver  threads
Dropped from heaven by Gods,Nature takes me then  to
Adorn her fields and valleys.

I am beautiful pearls  plucked
From the crown of Ishtar,
By the daughter of Dawn  to
Embellish her gardens.

Rain, the most joyful thing in this world.

When I cry the hills laugh and
When I humble myself
The flowers rejoice, and when I Bow, all things are elated.

The ‘field and cloud are lovers me a
Messenger of mercy between them,
I quench the thirst of the field  and
Cure th’ailment of the cloud.

The ‘voice of thunder declares
My ‘arrival and the rainbow
A’nnounces my departure  ‘am like
Earthly life which begins at
The ‘feet of mad elements, ends
Un’der th’upraised wings of death.

I gently touch the windows with my soft fingers.

Heart ‘of the sea I emerge from  and
Soar with the breeze. When I see
A ‘field in need I descend and
Em’brace the flowers and trees  in my ‘Million little ways.

I ‘gently touch the windows
With my s’oft fingers — And my
An’nouncement is a welcome  song
‘All can hear but only  the sensitive can understand.

I am the laughter of the field.

I ‘am the sigh of the sea,
The laughter of the field,
The ‘tears of the Heaven,
‘And so is with love.

Sighs ‘from deep sea of affection,
Laugh’ter from colourful field
Of ‘spirit; and tears from th’endless
‘Heaven of memories.

Sweet Friendship

In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed

Di manisnya persekawanan, biarkan ada tawa dan berbagi kesenangan. Sebab hal kecil yang dikerjakan dengan hati menemukan paginya dan merupakan hal yang menyegarkan dari.

Poems Upon The Sky

Trees are poems the earth writes upon the sky, We fell them down and turn them into paper,

That we may record our emptiness.

Pepohonan adalah puisi yang di tulis bumi untuk langit, kita menebangnya dan menjadikannya kertas,

yang kemudian kita mencatatkan kehampaan kita

Penantian di Pangkuan Ramadhan

And if you would know God, be not therefore a solver of riddles.

Rather look about you and you shall see Him playing with your children.

And look into space; you shall see Him walking in the cloud, outstretching His arms in the lightning and descending in rain.

You shall see Him smiling in flowers, then rising and waving His hands in trees.

Kahlil Gibran

Dan ketika engkau mengenal Tuhan, jangan beranggapan benang kusut akan terurai.

Lihatlah dikedalaman dirimu, maka engkau akan melihat Dia bermain dengan anak – anakmu.

Dan lihatlah ke angkasa, engkau akan melihat Dia berjalan di awan, merentangkan tanganNya ke halilintar dan bertuahkan hujan.

Engkau akan melihat Dia tersenyum di bunga, dan mengangkat serta melambaikan tanganNya kepada pepohonan. LIN
