Di Pintu Syurga


It’s been a month since I first heard the song “Di Pintu Syurga” on Juara Lagu 29, that was held in January 18 and I still love the song to bits. I think it has something to do with the poetic lyrics that is so simple and relatable. Take a look at it;

Segalanya kaku 
Hati terus menangis 
Bila mengenangkan 
Dirimu telah tiada 
 Kau pergi tanpa pesan 
Tinggal aku sendiri 
Menghitung hari 
Tiada daya 
Hilanglah sepi 

[Chorus] 
Duhai kekasih hati 
Katakanlah padaku 
Bahawa semua ini 
Hanya igauan mimpi 
Aku tak sanggup kasih 
Kehilangan dirimu 
Walau sedetik rindu mencengkam 
Terasa pedih 

[Repeat chorus] 
Doaku kasih kita bersua 
Di pintu syurga

For those non-malays, now Google got translation, so just press the google translation button if you’re curios to find out the meaning to the lyrics. But what impresses me most was how mature Dayang Nurfaizah’s voice was that night. And her vocal technique and control was sooo good! Well done Dayang! You certainly deserve the best vocal award for the night. And that whole dedication of the song to the victims of MH370 was very thoughtful. It made me cry a little.
