Tentang Jarak

Cherly wrote this song on the 100th day of 2020, and it was the 27th day of social distancing, which was done due to the government’s regulation in regards of global pandemic situation. The text itself was inspired by her longing of family and friends, with a hope that we can finally meet again after the pandemic is over.

Saat gelisah menyapa

Bertabur duka nestapa

Ku hanya bisa memejamkan mata,

Mengucap sebuah doa

Saat ku disapa sepi

Tanpa hadirmu di sini

Sejenak berdiam dalam gelita,

Mendamba senyumanmu.

Ijinkanku sampaikan rinduku lewat angin malam untukmu.

Doaku kau s’lalu bahagia.

Badai kan berlalu,

Kita ‘kan kembali satu.

Badai kan berlalu,

Kita ‘kan bersatu,

Tak lagi terpisah jarak Saat kita mencinta…

Recorded by Quaver Vocal Ensemble
Prajna Indrawati, piano
