                                                       Aku Pernah Muda

                                                    seperti kau juga akan tua

 

                                              Kalau kau sangka aku sudah tua

                                              Seperti bunga diserang sang suria;

                                              Lesu tangkai, layu kelopaknya

                                              Hilang wangi, habis madunya

                                              Lemah maya, luruh jasadnya.

                                              Seperti kau juga, aku pernah muda;

                                              Megah mekar mawar berbunga

                                              Harum semerbak, kekar kuntumnya

                                              Lawar memutih, manisan rasa

                                              Dipuja kasih dipuji rata.

 

                                              Tua, Muda; Kanak-kanak, Dewasa;

                                              Baru, Lama: Berumur, Remaja;

                                              Pusingan jam pasir dunia

                                              Pandangan mata kaca manusia

                                              Bandingan masa, imbangan ketika.

                                              Seperti mengesan

                                              Anak bulan Ramadhan

                                              Pemastian puasa

                                              Penentuan purnama

                                              Peralihan waktu alam nyata.

 

                                             Aku tua di sisi kau yang muda

                                             Namun muda di sisi insan tua;

                                             Bagai teka-teki menduga

                                             Reka akal menyangka

                                             Ukur usia mudah sahaja.

                                             Tetapi – kalau kaca mata

                                             Sudi dibuka

                                             Kaca pasir jadi intan permata

                                             Gerhana bulan terang cahaya

                                             Empulur hati tiada baya.

 

                                             Mestikah tua bermakna tidak muda

                                             Tidak berguna, tidak berdaya?

                                             Bukankah tua tanda

                                             Kekal abadi akal dan jiwa?

                                             Akar tunjang berasal nyawa

                                             Berurat berumbi, berbenih mulia;

                                             Bak ubi hina tumbuh merata

                                             Semakin berisi semakin lama

                                             Teguh saraf, kukuh baka

                                             Seharus juga engkau yang muda.
