@ BATANGHARI ....HARBORED MY HEART and TRANSLATION

                            Alun alun Bandung

@ BATANGHARI, Harbored My Heart


I hold manicured fingers, stepped down the river bank
Embraced firmly, jump over on board
If stumble, we come down together
Sit down close side by side


Over a roar thunder, I whispered closely
Turn her head, cheek meet cheek
She closed her eyes, not seeing my lips
I free my hand off the wheel
Auto piloted the boat up the river
Till the sun almost set in the slumber


Every opportunities, I drove in front of her house
Saw the wave make my heart melt
Sunday speedy boating in roar river
As my heart beat faster


Her eyes blur, will return to college
She'll meet the guy, who like her
Leaved me behind in questioning
Mom, where I'll be run away


Telex send to my hometown
Please come soon before the full moon
After say "Yes I do", set the Bigday
No more running away from Pariban
Over Batanghari river, harbour my heart

                                          Sungai Batanghari, Jambi

 

DI BATANGHARI HatikU BerlAbuH

Kugenggam jemarinya yang lentik menuruni tebing
Kupeluk ketika meloncat kedalam perahu
Jika jatuh biarlah tetap bersatu
Duduk merapat, ketika perahu melaju
Aduh, aroma rambutnya tertiup bayu


Ditengah gemuruh mesin, aku berbisik
Kepalanya berpaling, menyenggol pipi
Matanya terpejam, tidak melihat bibirku
Kulepas setir, berlabuh dihulu tepian
Kembali kehilir hingga waktu tenggelam


Senja senja tak alpa kulewat depan serambi
Hatiku berbunga, jika lambaian ada di jendela
Minggu berpacu di sungai perak yang bergelora
Seirama debur jantung dan gemuruh sungai
Kemudi kugenggam kencang dengan satu tangan


Matanya berembun, akan kuliah kembali
Pasti bersua sidia yang menaruh hati
Meninggalkanku, penuh prasangka
Ibu, kemana lagi aku kan lari


Telegram kilat ke kampung halaman
Harap bergegas datang sebelum bulan mati
Setelah berkata "ya", diikat ulos selendang
Bayang Pariban sudah lama menghilang
Karena di Batanghari hati berlabuh
