It was a majestic evening. She’s dressed up to the nines. Kebaya, heels, make ups, perfumes.

And him, beautiful as always.

Small smiles on their faces.

Polite. Charming.

“Mahu dikatakan apa lagi

Kita tak akan pernah satu

Engkau di sana, aku di sini

Meski hatiku memilihmu…”

The singer belted out her song. 

Her enchanting voice mesmerized the crowd, the lady included.

She was brought back to the day she sat alone on the swing, lamenting on her past, yet hopeful of the future.

She reminisced the night when it rained so heavily, it woke her up, and she prayed for this day.

“Engkau meminta padaku

Untuk mengatakan bila ku berubah

Jangan pernah kau ragukan

Engkau kan selalu di langkahku…”

She reached for his hand, and held it there, on his lap.

He held it back, tightly.

“Mahu dikatakan apa lagi

Kita tak akan pernah satu

Engkau di sana, aku di sini

Meski hatiku memilihmu..”

He turned to her, smiling at her.

She smiled back at him, this time a wide, lovely smile.

And he gave her his charming smile.

“Engkau di sana, aku di sini

Meski hatiku memilihmu

Yang tlah kau buat

Sungguhlah indah

Buat diriku susah lupa..”

*Indonesian words are from the song Mantan Terindah by Raisa. It is a beautiful, beautiful song.
