To The Daughters of Mine

“Setapakmu,

Kelak mungkin akan berbeda arah denganku.

Lajumu,

Pasti akan jauh melampaui kecepatanku.

Tapi jangan lupa untuk sesekali melambat.

Agar kamu bisa merekam apa yang belum terlewat.

Tak perlu tergesa.

Karena yang sudah terencana akan sabar menunggu di sana.

Dan setiap kali kamu pulang,

Kita akan berbincang tentang sepatu-sepatu yang kita kenakan.”

***

“Those little feet will soon roam the world.

Those little feet will soon make a run for the future.

And I will stand tall, behind their every step.

Always be there, in every victory and any turn they take.

Cause in those little feet, lay my hope and my prayer.

In those little feet, my happiness finds a way.”

***
