Old and Wise…

Beberapa hari yang lalu aku menulis status di FB ku

Kemaren aku menemukan 2 lembar rambut putih di sela-sela rambutku… Tanda usia semakin tunggi, tanda waktu semakin terbatas, tanda jiwa harus semakin taqwa, tanda hati harus semakin bijak dan tegar menghadapi jalan kehidupan… semoga waktu yang telah berlalu dan masih tersisa di depan tidak menjadi kesia-siaan…

Ada beberapa komentar dari teman2…  Lalu salah seorang sahabatku sejak belia meninggalkan comment “Old and Wise kata Alan Parson Project”

Komentarnya ini mengingatkan aku akan lagu Alan Parson Project tersebut… Lagu itu punya makna yang sangat dalam..  Someone who ever filled my days, coloured my life, years ago gave me a CD that he compiled by himself with beautiful songs.. One  ofthe songs is Old and Wise by Alan Parson’s Project..

The lyrics of this song are so beautiful, so meaningful…. It’s about a bound between two people that go through the years… A bound that make them be a friend for each other, though they already old, and wise…

OLD AND WISE

As far as my eyes can see
There are shadows approaching me
And to those I left behind
I wanted you to know
You’ve always shared my deepest thoughts
You follow where I go

And oh when I’m old and wise
Bitter words mean little to me
Autumn winds will blow right through me
And someday in the mist of time
When they asked me if I knew you
I’d smile and say you were a friend of mine
And the sadness would be lifted from my eyes
Oh when I’m old and wise

As far as my eyes can see
There are shadows surrounding me
And to those I leave behind
I want you all to know
You’ve always shared my darkest hours
I’ll miss you when I go

And oh, when I’m old and wise
Heavy words that tossed and blew me
Like autumn winds that will blow right through me
And someday in the mist of time
When they ask you if you knew me
Remember that you were a friend of mine
As the final curtain falls before my eyes
Oh when I’m old and wise

As far as my eyes can see
