Semper Memori

Happy Birthday, Papa!

You would have been 55 years old today. A twin double digit number, if only.

A look at my archive of today in the yesteryears of 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006...they are not much, but I'm glad I have those written down in memory of you.

And here, I'm sneaking in my favorite picture of you and me, when we were both young and carefree.

A little song for you, Papa.

Ayah ...

Betapa kuagungkan
Betapa kuharapkan

Ayah ...

Betapa kau berpesan
Betapa kau doa kan


Betapa pengalaman
Dahulu dan sekarang


Rambutmu t'lah memutih
Cermin suka dan sedih

Ayah ...

Ceritakan kembali
Riwayat yang indah waktu dahulu

Ayah ...

Ku takkan bosan mendengar
Riwayat waktu kau muda perkasa

Ayah ...

Kau dapat,merindukan
Kau dapat mengenangkan

Ayah ...
Waktu terus berlalu
Sampai ke anak cucu

Ayah, Koes Plus

Happy birthday other exceptional July 29th-ers: Bison and Enda.
