The Ghost of Time
By: Muhammad Syarif Fadhlurrahman
As the sun's enthronement goes on daily,
As does his dethronement, leaving nightly,
As the current on the stream of my life flows,
My body's growth also faithfully follows,
As the wind erodes the hills of desert sands,
On my past the ghost of time gets his hands,
His theft left me nothing but sore feeling,
For he leaves not an iota of the real thing,
But just the relics and the shadows once cast,
They are the only ones that will with me last,
Shadows guarded as treasures of my memory,
And kept with me the tangible relics in safety,
They shall accompany me till my senescence,
And disappear with me…
as death shall one day destroy my essence.
Nostalgia optima amica mea
