When Was The Last Time You…..? September 29, 2009

Who help you grew up to be as you are today?


Who love you for no granted never ending day by day?


At the time you were exist their life turned into shift.


At the time you were born you were their precious gift.


 


By them you were delivered into this world.


They keep you protected from any harm in this hard world.


By them you were raised with all efforts without any groan.


They keep you directed so that you could stand by your own.


 


When you grew up they don’t sing you lullaby anymore,


but their pray for you keep continue more and more.


Wishing you all best thing for your goodness,


watching you succeed is their pride and happiness


 


They deserve to have respect and honor,


as a respond of what they have been doing.


Even they don’t expect it as an exchange,


how can you express  your grateful love and caring?


 


There are many ways to show your love and attention.


Honor your parents could be done in several definitions.


Some people said it’s not the quantity you should mention


But it’s the quality you should pay attention


 


I will see it from one simple thing,  which makes me ask and wondering :


 


When was the last time you spent your time with your mother?


When was the last time you spent your time with your father?


I mean really spent not just being together?


And how long does it takes do your time you spent together?


 


When was the last time I spent my time with my mother?


Just recently, the full seven days on my holiday


I look after her in her sickness condition all day.  


A little bit ashame that actually it wasn’t something I intended to do


but regarding to some circumstances so no choice I have to do.


I look at it as a blessing in disguise so that we could spent our time together,


I’m grateful I have a chance to have a moment of being together


 


When was the last time I spent my time with my father?


Almost a year ago, for a week vacation  when I come home to our hometown.


There was a time I remember when just the two of us went out to downtown.


We were so excited having our father-daughter moment,


so then I was thinking and planning to do it more often.


But unfortunately, my wish could not be achieved,


because at the end of the month he passed away and left me in grieve.


Our father-daughter moment that afternoon was our last precious time I will always remember,


it became a sweet memory that will last forever.


 


When was the last time you spent your time with your mother?


When was the last time you spent your time with your father?


It’s just a simple thing to show your honor.


Be grateful when you still have the time to do it.


Be joyful and be blessed when you have the chance to do it.


 


Honor you father and your mother, so that you may live long


in the land the LORD  your God is giving you.

Kisah Si Monyet Kecil September 14, 2009

Ini adalah gambar Boots, seekor monyet kecil berwarna  biru sahabat Dora The Explorer. Monyet adalah primata yang memang akrab dengan manusia, mungkin karena kata Darwin punya garis kekerabatan? 😀  Cerita yang akan kutulis ini sebenarnya sudah lama terjadi, lebih setahun yang lalu, bukan tentang Boots, ini tentang seekor monyet kecil disuatu tempat.

Tempat itu adalah salah satu tempat cuci mobil, lokasinya open air ditepi jalan, di ujung sebuah belokan. Tempatnya lumayan bersih, sumber airnya berupa beberapa kran air yang berjejer dan sebuah bak panjang, airnya terlihat  jernih, mengalir deras dan lancar. Entah siapa yang mengelola tempat ini, meskipun usaha sederhana kelihatannya cukup dikelola dengan baik, mendayagunakan penduduk sekitar sebagai pekerjanya, boleh juga, daripada mereka nongkrong di terminal yang ada disekitar daerah itu. 

Tempat ini menyatu dengan sebuah taman kota yang meskipun kecil tapi cukup rimbun, disitu ada bangku tempat duduk bersantai, yang sekaligus juga dimanfaatkan sebagai tempat tunggu oleh orang yang sedang mencucikan mobilnya. Diseberang jalan ada deretan warung, boleh juga kalau mau menunggu disitu sambil minum atau makan. Tempat ini buka sampai larut malam, tak heran kalau cukup banyak yang jadi langganannya. 

Sesekali suamiku mencucikan mobil kami ditempat ini, seperti sore itu sepulang kerja, saat kebetulan kami berdua pulang bersama. Enak juga duduk di taman sore-sore, menikmati semilir angin dibawah rindangnya pohon, menyaksikan matahari senja saat beranjak ke peraduannya. Ditengah taman, dibelakang tempat kami duduk tampak sekelompok anak-anak bermain dengan riangnya. Aku membalikkan badan memperhatikan kelompok anak-anak tadi. Oh, ternyata mereka sedang bermain dengan seekor monyet. (more…)

Kapan Lagi Bilang I Love You September 8, 2009

Dalam perjalanan di siang yang terik tadi aku mendengarkan radio yang memutar sebuah lagu berirama slow, lumayan bikin adem suasana. Lagunya Dewi Sandra, terdengar mellow, padahal biasanya dia kan suka membawakan lagu dengan irama yang rancak, menari dengan lincah bersama para penari latarnya, tapi kali ini dia menyanyi lagu yang berirama slow,  hmmm…ternyata boleh juga.

Lagunya sih tidak terlalu istimewa, tapi sejak awal perhatianku sudah tercuri oleh petikan gitar akustik yang manis, lantunan vokal yang terdengar membawakan lagu ini dengan sepenuh hati, mencurahkan apa yang ada dihatinya. Tatanan musik akustik minimalis mendukung kesan sepi dan sendu. Aku jadi tersentuh saat memperhatikan syairnya, ada rasa iba dan simpati seolah bisa merasakan kegundahannya. Uh, sad song, Coba dengarkan :
