A journey to remember

Archive for the ‘Poem’ Category

Someday I’ll know…

The reason behind your attention in tiniest details of my life.

The reason behind your cute jealousy once or twice in our history.

The reason why you always listened to every word I ever said.

The reason why you always tried to comfort me.

Until finally… the reason why you suddenly walked out of my life.


You used to be my day.

You were the one I told everything I knew.

I knew you like you were a best friend.

But now… you are only somebody that I used to know.

Then again… someday I’ll know what turned us becoming strangers.

Someday I’ll know I was right or wrong.


Maybe I took you wrong.

Maybe you only wanted to become a good friend.

But maybe I was right…

Maybe it’s true that I did something wrong.

I did something which killed what you felt inside.


Many times have passed me by.

Sometimes I wish I could forget you like you never existed.

But most of the time… deep in my heart… I’m still wondering.

What if I never pushed you away everytime I was afraid?

What if I tried harder?

What if I never let you go?

But once again… someday I’ll know the answers for those questions.


I do always wish nothing but the best for you.

I will always remember you as somebody whom I used to love.

Maybe our path will never get crossed again.

Maybe we’ll find our own happily ever after with someone else.

Maybe I will never hear your voice,

Not either seeing your face no more.

But one thing for sure…

I do still believe that someday I’ll know…

Someday I’ll know what we used to have.

And someday, I’ll also know the reason why we never meant to be.





Tahukah kamu…

Satu menit, satu jam, satu hari…

Tidak akan pernah cukup untuk memberikanmu satu jawaban


Namun biarkanlah aku meminta…

Jangan pernah membenciku

Percayalah pada kebesaran hatiku,

Percayalah pada ketulusan kasih sayangku


Aku tidak ingin menjadi dilema,

Tidak ingin menjadi beban,

Tidak ingin menjadi bayang-bayang…

Hanya itu yang bisa aku jelaskan


Tapi aku tidak akan pernah sepenuhnya pergi

Sama seperti kamu,

Akan tetap kubagi bahagiaku bersamamu

Sama seperti kamu,

Aku tetap ada untuk curahan hatimu


Aku hanya tidak bisa selalu bersamamu

Aku ingin kamu kembali hidup tanpa sentuhan kehadiranku

Aku ingin kamu pertahankan cinta,

Ingin kamu mencoba untuk setia


Namun bila nanti…

Tak ada lagi orang yang percaya kepadamu,

Tak ada lagi cinta tulus dalam hidupmu,

Kembalilah kepadaku

Hingga nanti kamu mengerti…

Hanya aku tempat kamu melabuhkan hati

Aku tahu cara mendaki gunung itu

Aku tahu cara merintangi laut nan maha luas itu

Aku juga tahu, bagaimana menyakiti ia yang tak berdosa

Aku tahu aku bisa,

Namun aku adalah aku

Aku tak kan tertawa di atas deritanya

Aku tak bahagia di atas lukanya

Tak kan kunodai harap dan percayanya,

Karena aku adalah aku

Derita pasti kan datang menghampiriku

Luka, air mata, dan kecewa akan hiasi hari esokku

Tapi tak mengapa,

Aku akan bertahan menjadi aku

Bila terus berhembus napasku ini,

Kuyakin bahagia akan kembali menghampiririku

Aku tak meminta balas budi,

Ku hanya percaya Tuhan selalu ada bersama denganku

Kuyakin Ia maha melihat,

Bahwa aku tetap menjadi aku

Siapakah aku?

Aku hanya manusia biasa

Yang ingin kita bahagia bersama

Ingin yang terbaik untuk diriku,


Dan untuk dia

Lupakan aku

Aku akan tetap di sini menjadi aku,

Sahabat terbaikmu.

I love making poem. Check this one out…

I’m fear something, something about you
I’m fear that you didn’t really mean your love for me
That you took it easy when we had to say good bye
That you don’t remember me as much as I do

I worry something, something about me
I worry that our stories were only my dreams
I worry that I messed everything up
I worry that I’m gonna regret my stupidity forever

There’s something I want you to know
It’s my biggest fear
My biggest fear, about you and me

I’m scare that you don’t love me anymore,
As well as I do still love you,
As much as I remember you,
As well as you gave a light on my days

Wish everything will be like it used to be;
You, Me, us, just the two of us

I love you…

Notes: You may copy this poem to be given to your ex. It’s gonna work, I promise 🙂 Good luck – Riffa

I used to read a quote written by my former lecture saying that even a bad decision would always be much better than no decision at all. It reminded me of the decisions I put on hold and I asked myself, “What prevents me from making all those decisions?” I could instantly listed down many personal reasons that didn’t even sound good to myself. So there I made a couple of decisions; the good ones and the bad ones, and apparently it was so true: even bad decision was still better than no decision at all. First of all, it helped me to move on. I no longer waited for this and that; I made decisions and I started to make the actions. It also gave me a peace of mind knowing that I owed nothing to anyone, not even to myself. And most importantly, all those decisions made me learn, notably the bad ones. It’s not that I intentionally made a bad one, but well, how did I know my decision was bad until I gave it a try? Ever since the day I decided to stop putting my decisions on hold, my life felt a lot lighter and I have never been more proud of myself. Other people might not be happy with my decisions, but I only do what I’ve got to do and they can’t blame me for having courage to do the things they’re not willing to do. If it holds me back and nobody wants to make the call, then let me do the honor. It’s actually that simple, and again, it sets me free.
My biggest career goal is always running my own business. I have been an entrepreneur even since I was a seven years old. I was never hesitate everytime I saw an opportunity to earn some cash to buy toys and comic books. Graduating from college and starting my first corporate job has stopped me from doing my own business. I was too busy to do something else beside my main job. I tried to run a small jewelry business but then I got bored. I came to learn that if I want to start a business, I have to do something bigger. But of course, a bigger scale own business will also require a bigger effort! The comfort of corporate job made me decide to postpone starting a new business until at some point, it was no longer comforting to me. I still remember one night I went home feeling extremely upset with my boss and I just told myself, “I can’t do this forever. I can do much better than working for a jerk.” Right at that moment, I decided to start my biggest dream: starting my own business. Not so long after that, @thelenstory was born.
There is this one little secret about @thelenstory. There was one particular guy who made me fall deeper with photography. He was so talented he could make an old dirty lamp look beautifully glow in his pictures. I still remember that day on a boat, he took pictures of me and he smiled behind his lens. That kind of smile that made me feel the prettiest girl on earth. I didn’t know why but I just loved seeing this guy holding his camera. I even still loved it when he took pictures of me with his grumpy face! At the end of the day, The Lens Story is way more than just a girl who fell in love. The ups and downs, and all lifetime savings that I’ve spent have been the greatest leap of faith I’ve ever taken in my entire life. That one guy from my past was just a starting point. He was my inspiration, he made me believe that there were many hidden talents like him out there and I would be more than happy to help them start their professional career in photography. That was the very beginning story on how my start-up was born, and to me, that will always be one of my favorite stories to tell.
