Somebody Fine Will Come Along...

Long before I discovered your little town north of Nibong Tebal I'd imagined somebody fine will come along to make me forget about loving you. But you know me better. Around this time of the year, I'd put on my riding gear and pack everything I own in this world into a bag not bigger than your pillow to ride at 220 kph thinking of you while the trees disappear from the corner of my eyes in a blur greenish patches like watercolor.

Somewhere between Kuala Kangsar and Taiping I try to call you on the phone to ask about the weather in your little town but the truth is, I want to hear your voice. The truth is I want to paint in my mind the way you look at me to say 'jangan bawak laju-laju'. The truth is I'm dying inside to be with you this very instant and that got me to ride faster and faster because I've gotta be in your little town before dark.

Somebody fine will come along one fine day. And I believe that somebody fine is in Damascus which is much much too far and too bothersome for me to put on my riding gear and pack everything I own into a bag not bigger than a pillow to ride at 220 kph so I can go see her to say we need to get married.

As for today, a little town called Sungai Bakap is good enough, until somebody fine comes along, that is.

Salam Bergen..
Tak sempat habis baca your previous entries.. nampak macam masih menyimpan rindu dendam... cinta pertama ke atau cinta yang tak kunjung padam?
Whatever hope you are OK.. Redhakan lah..

Salam

Dear Sir Bergen

Salam Aidil Fitri buat Tuan. I cringed in tears reading this post.

But Allah knows best as mentioned in Surah Ar Radd, Verse 39.

And like Kahlil Gibran said in his "Love"...."And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course".

If SG Bakap is the direction you're taking, do the unusual stops and yes, like you said, somebody fine will come along...

Take care Sir

Salam Bro. Bergen,
Its really nice to see you're your usual self again with your words... hehehe, take care and gud luk with your search for the heart of gold! Btw, at 220 kph, a slip of the eye at 0.1 second could make a difference between being on the road and in the longkang or parit... or bendang, depending where you are!! So take care...

..you dont have to imagine for somebody fine to come along..for there's no one finer than the one that came..maybe you should eased back a lil on the throttle and make it a leisurely 20kph..and catch the glistening green of leaves..for there is none finer than you..
