a copy of me


I look at her skinny mini body, and feels like I'm looking at little me
I see her reading books, and feels like I'm looking at me
I see how she doesn't like to eat, and it is just so me
I see her doing sketches on her book, and it's something I still do
I hear her singing all the time, that's just the same as I always do
I read the stories she writes, and she reads mine

I watch her playing the piano...
it was just a dream to me twenty years ago
she's a lot like me in so many ways
but I know she's just not me

tell me darling
do you have a dream that I can help to make come true?

************

kulihat tubuh mungilnya, dan rasanya aku melihat diriku waktu kecil dulu
kulihat dia membaca buku, dan lagi kurasa melihat aku
kulihat betapa susahnya dia makan, itu seperti aku
kulihat dia menggambar sketsa di bukunya, aku juga masih suka melakukannya
kudengar dia bernyanyi sepanjang waktu, sama saja dengan aku
kubaca cerita yang ditulisnya, dan dia membaca punyaku

kulihat dia bermain piano
itu hanya mimpi buatku ketika aku seumur itu
dia begitu banyak sama denganku
tapi aku tahu dia bukan aku

katakan padaku sayang
adakah mimpimu yang bisa kubantu mewujudkannya?

That is so sweet. I love the way you ended that with asking if there's a dream you can help make true.

I have an award for you on my blog.
