In memoriam…..

Tadi ada yang meninggal. Ayahnya mbak Denok, kakak ipe-ku. Rasanya deg-degan juga membayangkan andai saja yang terbaring dan disholatkan itu adalah aku sendiri. Entah apa yang terjadi di kemudian hari. Rasanya masih banyak dosa yang diperbuat, dan masih sedikit yang membuat hidup ini menjadi bermakna. Padahal, ajal entah kapan, dekat atau bahkan sangat dekat. Siap tidak siap, seolah ada sang malaikat pencabut nyawa di belakang membawa sebilah belati dan siap menikamku sewaktu-waktu.

Orang tua…….hanya dua orang tua, sekalipun beranak sepuluh, usahanya adalah untuk membahagiakan kesemuanya. Tetapi, biarpun ada sepuluh anak, belum tentu mampu membahagiakan hanya dua orang tua..

Cranberries—Ode to my family

Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo…

Understand the things I say, don’t turn away from me,
‘Cause I’ve spent half my life out there, you wouldn’t disagree.
Do you see me? Do you see? Do you like me?
Do you like me standing there? Do you notice?
Do you know? Do you see me? Do you see me?
Does anyone care?

Unhappiness where’s when I was young,
And we didn’t give a damn,
‘Cause we were raised,
To see life as fun and take it if we can.
My mother, my mother,
She hold me, she hold me, when I was out there.
My father, my father,
He liked me, oh, he liked me. Does anyone care?

Understand what I’ve become, it wasn’t my desing.
And people ev’rywhere think, something better than I am.
But I miss you, I miss, ’cause I liked it,
‘Cause I liked it, when I was out there. Do you know this?
Do you know you did not find me. You did not find.
Does anyone care?

Unhappiness where’s when I was young,
And we didn’t give a damn,
‘Cause we were raised,
To see life as fun and take it if we can.
My mother, my mother,
She hold me, she hold me, when I was out there.
My father, my father,
He liked me, oh, he liked me.

Does anyone care?… X9
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo…
