That joy in your chatter..

[Bahasa Indonesia]

How happy I was
To sit before you
Listening to your chatter
Joyfully
Telling me about your days
Your work, home, family, friends
And the small details in life

My smile bloomed
Light, spontaneous
You reminded me of something
Of me, my happiness, my lightness
You reminded me of my love

I said to you
Seldom did I see friends at our age
That remained so passionate
About their work or life

You stared at me
Puzzled
Why would anybody be like that?
Insisting
On something they don’t even like

I went silent, I could not answer
Because I knew well
That I sometimes had been guilty as charged
Immersed in the sad stories
Which I created in my own mind, repeatedly
A self-constructed prison

Your stories, and how you tell them, ignited another sensation
In me
Vaguely, stretching sluggishly
Due to a prolonged sleep

You reminded me of something
Of me, of my joy, and of my lightness
You reminded me of my love

I realize how I love
Love my life
And every dent, big or small, in my life
How I–in fact–enjoy it tremendously
Sometimes without me realizing
Due to those stacks of make-belief feelings and thoughts

But no more, enough
From now on, joy, lightness, love
Without the illusive burden of feelings and thoughts

My smile blooms
Light, spontaneous
And with that, my steps lighten
Unstoppable, full of love and gratitude

Thank you, for reminding me of love
