Border Guardian Spirit

By Tararith

Living in the Khmer land at the border getting the food offerings from foreigners.
Getting separated from all children who used to make scrumptious food offerings.

As a Guardian Spirit I still safeguard the Khmer land to stay intact.
But some children abandon their land inheritance leaving behind the [ancestral] land that they used to enjoy.

Before there were Khmer food and language now those things are disappearingly gone.
I am the Guardian Spirit who is deeply worried seeing land-grabbing thieves near and far come to make food offerings.

Oh Khmer people I beg for your forgiveness please come cross the border to make food offerings to me.
Because I want to live longer avoiding any more poverty.

~SORRY~

SORRY

    I will never ever regret of knowing you. But I’m regret that our friendship is heavy to go on. Don`t know why I never trust you only one time, because your act never show me your heart and your heart never show me the trust. Don`t know why I think what I have been meeting is just only the DREAM a dream when I’m not sleeping, a dream that cannot come true. Because you are not my fairy tale. I know that you still miss the past, think the past, and need the past. Don`t know when you can stop caring the sad past. Wait waiting is a very hard task for me. Waiting is tired. The more I wait, the more time I waste. Because it`s no use for me to wait the spring while summer is still hot and dry. So it is the best way for me to run far away from a deep of hurting.

Thanks for your kind, thanks for your sharing, thanks for your time, thanks for your helping, thanks that you made me have a good feeling, thanks that you made me sad, thanks that you made me hopeless, AND GIVE ME THOUSANDS APOLOGIES THAT I LEAVE YOU!

Please be a strong one who lives with smiling and hopeful not only for today, but tomorrow also (*_*)

LOVE IS NOT TO FORGET BUT TO FORGIVE.

I remember the words that someone told me:

* True friendship is hard to break. It endures all hardship and difficulties. If it can be easily broken, it is not called a true friendship.

* The person who understand you, never hurt you. Only those who dont understand you hurt you instead.

* It`s hard to find a real friendship. You have only one or two true friendship a life time. It take a lot of study, efforts, screening before you can find a good one.

 GOOD BYE MY LOVE

In Cambodia, there are lot of temples which built by Khmer ancestors. Among these the Banteay Srei Temple was estabished, as well. This beautiful temple was broken for long time because of civil war and local war. It was forgotten in central forest like other temple in the area of Angkor.  Fortunately, it was rediscovered in 1914 by LIEUTENANT MAREC and cleared by H. PARMENTIER, in French colony regime.

Banteay Srei is the modern name of a 10th century Khmer temple originally called “Tribhuvana Mahesvara” ត្រីភុវន មហេស្វរៈ (Great Lord of the three folf World). Banteay Srei means « the citadel of the women ». It really deserves the name « diamond of Angkor ». A special feature of this temple is made of hard pink and red sandstone that can be carved like wood.  Architectural and decorative features are unique and fine.   Apsara is not only having on the other temple of Angkor area but also have in Banteay srei with the beautiful engraving, because of its wordering engrave, so it become the well-known temple which always known that “Jewel of Khmer Art”.

In presently, our beautiful temple is so old, so in the name of Khmer generation should protect thoroughly. We should not touch or fond strongly, especially punishe the people who are stolen the engraving for iligal selling.

«Preah Vihear»

Preah Vihear

by Tararith

Preah Vihear temple stands lonely in the forest

See this and pity the Khmer land.

All along the Dangrek mountainside so much suffering.

In our temple we see only sorrow, and

In the scattered stones feel regret in our hearts.

What was once perfect, we would want restored.

If the creators could see this ruin,

They too would be sad.
