(for my beloved Rama, april 23rd 1941 – february 19th 2007. i love you, wherever you are)

On the journey
A narrative about the sailor
Sail, sail alongside the wide ocean
Fight the stream
Conquers the wave, the terrain, and the island
Which always brand new
All the time

For those the journeymen
Sail, sail alongside the wide of the horizon
Underlining the sky
Find the sense of the curiousity
While ignoring the time passes by

For those the journeymen
For those who figure the journey
Picking the dreams up
Never come to an end
Endlessly

For they are the journeymen
Compile it into the frame of memories
Floating like I am
Sailing in the beauty of the universe

+ ukirsari, Singapore, April 1996
