My love poem translated into the sasak language. This version has a special taste for me, because I almost know a sasak girl. Almost, because there is only as difference a letter, she has everything of this people. She is young and really very pretty! She want to learn all dance steps, then a day, find two arms in which to drown. I know that in a few years she will show her dance to me. But for now, her life is in stand by, she learns, she waits, alone in the world surrounded by others!
A little more than 2 million Sasaks, speak one of the five dialects of this language in Lombok, Indonesia. This Malayo-Sumbawan language is written as well with our Latin letters as with the Balinese script. One sent this translation into Latin letters and i converted it into aksara.
