A Poem From A Friend

lim peh ka li kong

Me is so sotong because after a cyber friend wrote a poem "Sparks" to me long time ago but me didn't even know until lately.

Ling, thank you very much for the nice poem.

lim peh kong wan liao


"Monsieur Lim"


I remember the night
When you dreamt of me
The girly smile you put on my face
Simply made me a happy girl
I'll never, ever forget.

I remember the night
When you spoke
Your voice sounded like the calm waves
sweeping smoothly on the shore
Simply made all the children
running happily with your rhythm
I'll never, ever forget.

I remember the night
When you told me about voices
I simply sat dreamily and nodded
Would Lim Pek be different from Grandpa?
Sir, I'll never know.
It doesn't matter, you said.
I'll never, ever forget.

Not dreamin...I remember the night
The Joy you brought to others
Like Rainbow after Rain
With You plucking stars from the sky
for each one of them.
Does it matters if I don't understand?
No, for each stars you plucked
You gave them sparkles and You have given
me not the star..
but the Sparks.
I'll never, ever forget..
the Sparks.

Old Beng

    It was badly written but nevertheless, that was how I felt when I discovered you in Local Issues. Thank you for that wonderful dream. You have indeed given the sparkling stars to each and everyone of them, and these stars are the joy you have brought along with you, and I'm sure they will keep them close to their hearts. I will treasure the sparks for the rest of my life. Thank you.

    LingLing, admire your writing skills. Enjoyed reading your other poems in YMB, especially some of the ones beginning with "Counting".

    Thank you for your compliment. Have a great baby you are or boy?? Must be a boy..when he grows up..get him to write will definitely fall head over heels ( unless they wear slippers,then don't quote me ya )for him.

    Though I must admit that Ling is in fact a pretty girl but no my wife will not be jealous la.

    Ling and Dewi
    Ha ha, no problem having conversation in my playground at all, you are most welcome.

    BTW Ling, when you enter into Dewi's blog, go double-click onto the cartoon icon on the right. With the cursor on the icon, you will be able to see if it is entries, links, etc. She has many new photos uploaded.

    Ha, ha... :D The baby whom i was holding is my son, Shawn Ethan. He was also mistaken as a girl when MP Penny Low came to my estate to shake the hands of the residents ;p Can never really tell for sure whether a baby (especially the small ones) is a boy or girl ;p
