Who Knows?

Assalamualaikum w.b.t. 

Some people take verses from the Quran lightly. Some people don't take Islam seriously. Some people choose to ignore anything that is related to Rasulullah s.a.w. Nauzubillahiminzalik. May Allah protect us from evil and  wrong doers.

  • I've always wanted to sing. I don't have a melodious voice aber I somehow believe in myself. Haha!
  • Aber if you ask me to sing in public oder post a video of me singing on youtube, h**l to the NO. 

Two days past eighteen
He was waiting for the bus in his army green
Sat down in a booth in a cafe there
Gave his order to a girl with a bow in her hair
He's a little shy so she gives him a smile
And he said would you mind sittin' down for a while
And talking to me,
I'm feeling a little low
She said I'm off in an hour and I know where we can go

So they went down and they sat on the pier
He said I bet you got a boyfriend but I don't care
I got no one to send a letter to
Would you mind if I sent one back here to you
So the letters came from an army camp
In California then Vietnam
And he told her of his heart
It might be love and all of the things he was so scared of
He said when it's getting kinda rough over here
I think of that day sittin' down at the pier
And I close my eyes and see your pretty smile
Don't worry but I won't be able to write for awhile

I cried
Never gonna hold the hand of another guy
Too young for him they told her
Waitin' for the love of a travelin' soldier
Our love will never end
Waitin' for the soldier to come back again
Never more to be alone when the letter said
A soldier's coming home

One Friday night at a football game
The Lord's Prayer said and the Anthem sang
A man said folks would you bow your heads
For a list of local Vietnam dead
Crying all alone under the stands
Was a piccolo player in the marching band
And one name read but nobody really cared
But a pretty little girl with a bow in her hair

When we were at Jabal Rahmah, I couldn't stop myself from crying. I guess I was the only jemaah in that particular group who shed a bucket of tears there. The past came playing in my mind und I was definitely sadden by it. Bapak was there. I guess he witnessed the man who once broke my heart, held my hand und climbed up the Jabal together with me. In the name of Allah, I have the most forgiving parents. Bapak truly understood the war I was in. He helped me in becoming the soldier I am today. I love you.  

  • None of my family members are in the army. Aber I believe everyone will leave this world at anytime, anywhere und any type of battlefield they are in. 
  • I guess we are all travellin' soldiers.
