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 bersatu,

Tak lagi terpisah jarak.

Saat kita mencinta…

English translation:

When the restless and sorrow greets me

All I can do is close my eyes,

Say my prayer

When the loneliness of your absence greets me

I stayed in the dark for a moment,

longing for your smile.

Allow me to express my yearning

through the night wind, for you.

I wish you an eternal bliss.

The storm will pass, we will be united,

No longer separated by the distance.

When we are loving…
